Dancing On Ice viewers unimpressed with Gemma Collins' comeback

She came back, she didn't conquer...

Up until this evening there was a big question mark hanging over tonight's Dancing On Ice final.

No, not whether young gun Wes Nelson would triumph over performing pro James Jordan, or other finalist Saara Aalto.

But whether THE talking point of the series, Gemma Collins, would make an appearance.

This has been a drama in itself.

The GC WAS due to come back with the rest of the celebs from this series, but then this was thrown into doubt over the past week.

Judge Jason Gardiner compared her to a fridge mid-week and she took offence, threatening a no-show.

Then, on last night's Jonathan Ross Show the TOWIE star was adamant she'd be strapping on her skates tonight.

So everyone else skated, Gemma just moved her arms and sat on the ice!

But by this morning she was battling a virus...

In the event, she did return with her partner Matt Evers tonight.

Naturally, the most controversial TV show-signing possibly ever upset viewers, though, not least because she didn't do much skating.

(Did they really think she'd have been concentrating on what she didn't learn during her time on the show once she got booted off?!)

Off they went on Twitter...
