Daniel Whiston backs Beth Tweddle for Dancing on Ice win
'Dancing on Ice' professional Daniel Whiston is backing his former partner Beth Tweddle to win the final series of the ITV skating show if he and Hayley Tamaddon don't win
Daniel Whiston would like Beth Tweddle to win 'Dancing on Ice' if he and Hayley Tamaddon don't.
The professional skater - who won the eighth series with the Olympic gold medal winner last year - has claimed that if he is not fortunate enough to win the final of the all-stars series this weekend alongside skating partner Hayley Tamaddon, he would like to see Beth and her partner Lukasz Rozycki take the crown.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Hayley is a strong contender. Beth will always have a special place in my heart, I won the show with her last year. [But] anybody in the final deserves to win."
Hayley and Beth will compete against Ray Quinn to win the final series of 'Dancing on Ice', which will come to an end after the instalment on Sunday (09.03.13).
Daniel, who has won the show three times previously, is excited for the final but is particularly looking forward to relaxing at the wrap party.
He said: "There is going to be a massive wrap party. All the contestants from over the years have all been invited so those that will wanna come will be there. There will be loads of big celebrations - it is going to be a messy night. You can expect to find me under the table with a bottle of wine."
Last week, Daniel believed he wouldn't be able to skate due to tearing his bicep, however, he managed to pull through the performance with partner Hayley, scoring top marks from the judges.
He recalled: "Last week was such a stressful week. If it hadn't of been for our physiotherapist Sharon Morrison, I wouldn't have been able to skate. I've had machines on it every day and a lot of work had to happen. It is in a good place now ... I am on the mend and we are certainly not going to let an injury hold us back at this stage"
The final episode of 'Dancing on Ice' airs Sunday 9 March at 7pm on ITV.
