DANCING on Ice concludes this weekend after 10 gruelling weeks of intense training.

Three finalists – Coronation Street cast member Brooke Vincent, X Factor alumnus Jake Quickenden and rugby star Max Evans – are all going head to head to impress the judges and viewers at home and be crowned champion of the deep-freeze dance show.

But while the threesome fight to impress figure skating royalty Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, with two lucky couples taking on their famous bolero routine in the final, Brooke revealed she also wanted to impress some other Dancing on Ice royalty.

The 25-year-old teased that Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby had given her some advice ahead of appearing on the show.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online at the Dancing on Ice press day, the Sophie Webster actress revealed: "Holly and Phil are lovely, they're so nice to have around.

FINALIST: Could Brooke take the title on Sunday?

"They're such a calming energy before the show."

She continued: "Holly's dressing room is next to mine, and she often sees me running around before the show starts in a panic.

"She always tells me to calm down before we head on stage."

Top telly duo Holly and Phil have ensured the new series of Dancing on Ice is unmissable viewing, with the twosome constantly cracking up on camera by making inappropriate jokes.

Holly descended into a peel of giggles when Phillip, 55, made a crude penis joke on one of the early live shows, as he proudly showed the audience of home a picture of himself "astride his chopper".

And Holly has revealed it is her three children's love of rival show Strictly Come Dancing that prompted her to join the Dancing on Ice reboot, which relaunched at the beginning of this year after four years off our screens.

Speaking to The Sun, the 37-year-old explained: "They got so into Strictly and I thought to myself, 'God they would have loved Dancing On Ice.'"

Referring to her gorgeous ballgowns she dons for each episode, Holly continued: "There’s not many shows where you get to wear a gorgeous, full-on princess frock.


VICTORY: Brooke faces tough competition to take the crown

“So I am going to run with it, let me tell you that. It’s lovely.

“It’s like dressing up every Sunday, so I’m going to use that opportunity to have a bit of fun.”

Dancing on Ice: The Final continues Sunday at 6pm on ITV.
