Bobby Norris backs Gemma Collins to win Dancing on Ice

OHMYGOSSIP — Bobby Norris says Gemma Collins can win ‘Dancing On Ice’ if the public “stay behind her”.
The 32-year-old reality star has backed his pal, who was in tears after getting a disappointing score of 13.5pts out of 40 on Sunday evening’s show (03.02.19), to go all the way on the ice skating series after she was saved in the public vote last night.
Speaking on Monday’s episode (04.02.19) of ‘This Morning’, Bobby said: “I think she’s gonna try and pull it out of the bag next week. She’s gonna be in full GC mode and every week I just can’t wait to see what her outfit is gonna be, what performance she’s gonna put on.
“I really think she can [win], she’s got a really good shot at it if the public stay behind her and, touch wood they do, like social media is always blowing up when she’s performed and yeah, I think she’s got a really good chance.”
Bobby – who has been on the ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ since 2012 – says Gemma was in a lot of pain following her tumble on the ice last month, and admits it was important she got her “confidence” back.
He added: “With Gem, when she puts her mind to something, she really wanted to do well. So from October, when she found out, she was down the rink six days a week and really was taking it seriously.
“I spoke to her this morning and she was so gutted and she cried because she knew she could have done better but she’s been in so much pain form the fall the week before and realistically it takes some confidence to get back on the ice after a fall like that. She’s a brave girl.
“I think it shows the public are really behind her, she literally could go out there and sit on the ice and she would still get votes because Gemma’s an entertainer and she might be at the bottom of the leaderboard but people are behind her, they are voting for her.”

What about the backstage rink?

The show has gone through a bit of a shakeup backstage as Ashley’s brother Jordan Banjo will not be returning to host the backstage segment.

“Jordan was brilliant, but there have been changes to his schedule that mean he’s unavailable to film next year, so he’ll be axed from the format,” says the source.

“Show bosses are bringing in new professionals to shake things up.”

Karen Barber has landed the role of head coach and will be reunited with Jason Gardiner seven years after their heated on-air row.

A source said: “There is no love lost between the two of them, and there’s bound to be fireworks. In the past, he’s reduced her to tears.”

A start date for Dancing On Ice 2019 has not been officially announced however the full line-up has been confirmed including the likes of Gemma Collins and Wes Nelson.

Last year, former X-Factor singer and reality star Jake Quickenden won with professional partner Vanessa Bauer.

He said: “It’s more substantial than it was last year, you may remember, we had a rattling problem with the howling winds, so we’ve rebuilt the studio.

“The studio audience has a capacity of 530 so it’s bigger than it was last year.”

Bookies have already picked their favourites to win the show with ex-Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton, 34, coming out on top.

Dancing with wolves (nearby): a wild New Year’s Eve in Canada

At an eco-lodge in Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario, New Year’s Eve is celebrated around a campfire, surrounded by snow, endless forest and wolves

“Hello,” I called. “Anyone there?”

I was beginning to lose hope I’d ever find the Algonquin Eco-Lodge. It was as dark as a coal mine on the thickly wooded trail, the temperature around -25C. A sign about 15 minutes back said it was a 2.5km walk from the parking lot. There had been a few forks in the path and now I thought I might have taken a wrong turn. My phone had no signal – par for the course in Ontario’s Algonquin Provincial Park, thousands of square kilometres of wilderness 234km south-west of Ottawa and 18km from the nearest town. Fortunately, I was dressed for the occasion — ski pants over long underwear, thermal socks, proper winter boots, and several layers under my jacket.
