DANCING on Ice finalists have been told to focus on their training rather than the Harry and Meghan interview – as it’s causing a “distraction.”
Colin Jackson , Faye Brookes and Sonny Jay have been thrust straight into their gruelling training schedules today ahead of the glittering finals on Sunday, and have been warned not to get distracted by royal news.
A source told HOAR: “There has been a lot of excitement over the Harry and Meghan interview – and everyone is talking about it.
“The cast and crew have been advised to knuckle down for training so they can put on the greatest show on ice on Sunday and not get distracted by the Harry and Meghan chat.
“There has been no time for down time or celebrations after the semi-finals.
“The stars have gone straight back to training this morning.”
The source added: “People will be talking about the Oprah interview for days.
“But the next few days will be crucial for them all, so they will have to block out the noise, stay focused and keep their eyes on Sunday night’s prize. “
Corrie’s Faye Brookes and Capital DJ Sonny Jay skated through to make it to the finals of Dancing on Ice next week.
They will be joined by ex Olympic hero Colin who beat Lady Leshurr in the skate-off to win the last place in the finals.
All stars put on stellar performances, with Lady Leshurr and Brendyn, Faye and her pro partner Matt Evers joint top of the leaderboard.
However after the public voted Faye and Sonny through to the finals, Lady Leshurr had to face Colin in a tense skate-off.
It was left to Christopher Dean to make the final call after the other judges gave them equal votes.
Colin broke down in tears as he was voted through. He had performed a skate dedicated to his late father during the course of the evening, while Faye’s stunning skate was dedicated to her brother who battled Leukaemia and survived.
Fans broke down as they watched Sonny’s emotional skate in tribute to his late best friend and producer Joe.
Meanwhile Lady Leshurr was sent home but was praised for her emotional skate – dedicated to her late sister who tragically passed away after battling breast cancer last year.
Some fans flocked to Twitter to brand the show a ‘fix’ when the rapper was sent home after getting her highest scores of the series.
The glittering final will be on ITV next week at 6pm.
