We have our 2023 Dancing On Ice winners, people!

After a nail-biting final of showcases and perfect 40s with The Vivienne, Joey Essex, and Nile Wilson, there could only be one couple to lift the trophy.

And it was Nile and professional partner Olivia who secured the title of Dancing On Ice champions 2023 in a truly spectacular moment.

Drag queen The Vivienne – real name James Lee Williams – and partner Colin Grafton were announced earlier on as third place, narrowly missing out on the chance to skate Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean’s iconic Olympic routine.

And after two gorgeous boleros from tearful gymnast Nile and pro Olivia, and Towie’s Joey and partner Vanessa Bauer, it was certainly a tough one to call.

Understandably, winner Nile was left in a real state of shock when his name was called by host Phillip Schofield.

He delivered a heartfelt acceptance speech as he thanked viewers for their support.

Viewers of the popular ITV skating show were thrilled that the sportsman won, after over one million votes were cast in the final alone.

‘Yes they won! Congratulations Nile & Olivia well deserved’, one viewer tweeted.

‘Huge congrats Nile and Olivia you were amazing from show one’, penned another.

‘Yessssssssss!! So happy, loved watching Nile skate he made it look effortless every week and tonight’s final was amazing, well done to Joey coming runner up I wanted it to be out of those 2 to win so I’m so happy!!’, tweeted another thrilled fan.

Nile started off the final with a pirate-style showcase choreographed by Jayne and Chris themselves.

The routine earned them four 10s from the panel, after Nile showed off his gymnastic abilities and performed a handstand on parallel bars suspended in the air as well as the infamously difficult headbanger, the first time a male celebrity has attempted the move.

After the performance, he said it was an ‘honour’ to have the routine choreographed by judges and former Olympic champion skaters Jayne and Chris.

The night continued to be an emotional one for Nile, as he struggled to hold back his tears after performing his version of the Bolero.

‘We got to skate the most iconic ice dance of all time. And I knew this was Oliva’s dream as well. What an absolute pleasure, what a process it’s been. We’ve put our all into it and we gave 110% and you can see how much it means to us,’ he said proudly.
