‘Dancing On Ice’: Gemma Collins Promises Fans She Will Skate At The Final

The star was speaking at the taping of this week's Jonathan Ross show.

Gemma Collins has insisted that she will be returning to Dancing On Ice this weekend, speaking just two days after a(nother) bust-up with Jason Gardiner let her refusing to take part.

The two stars clashed multiple times while Gemma was in the competition and this week, Jason reignited the feud by pretending not to know who The GC is during an interview on This Morning.

When presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield referred to Gemma by using her initials-based nickname, the judge played coy,commenting he thought that “The GC” was the name of a “refrigerator”.

In response, Gemma accused Jason of “bullying”, telling him he’d been “very upsetting and hurtful” and writing on Instagram:  “I won’t be bullied any more making me feel uncomfortable to come back to the final on Sunday! [sic]

“I was looking forward to Sunday but won’t be anywhere near someone who’s BULLYING me.”

However, during the taping of this weekend’s Jonathan Ross Show, Gemma revealed a change of heart. 

She told the presenter: “I did pull out and then I thought, to everyone that has supported me, for my own self esteem, I am not going to back down to anybody.

“I am going to walk back in on that show on Sunday night and I am going to skate like it’s the last day of my life.”

Before becoming the fifth celebrity to leave the current series of Dancing On Ice, Gemma was a huge hit with fans and impressed with her ability to get back on her feet after one particularly nasty fall.

Sunday’s final will see the three remaining celebrities – former Strictly Come Dancing professional James Jordan, Love Island finalist Wes Nelson and X Factor singer Saara Aalto – take to the rink for one last time, in a bid to be crowned champion.

The Jonathan Ross Show will air Saturday at 9.20pm on ITV. The Dancing On Ice final airs on Sunday at 6pm.
