Gemma Collins vowed she was “never to be seen on skates again” as she returned to Dancing On Ice for the final.
The reality TV star was eliminated from the ITV show in February but went back on Sunday for the final, where James Jordan was crowned the winner.
Collins took to the ice for a last brief skate, but told viewers: “The GC is back for one night only.
“Never to be seen on skates again.”
The star had a rocky journey on the show, taking a tumble which she said damaged her confidence and getting embroiled in an on-air row with judge Jason Gardiner.
The conflict started when Gardiner delivered some harsh criticism for one of Collins’s performances, saying she had been channelling the late model Anna Nicole Smith instead of Marilyn Monroe, which she had been aiming for.
Collins then accused Gardiner of selling stories on her.
The tension flared up again last week when Gardiner took a swipe at the former contestant on This Morning.
Feigning ignorance to Phillip Schofield as to who “GC” was, Gardiner told the host: “Oh I thought that was a refrigerator.”
