Brendan Cole confesses real reason he’s ‘glad’ Dancing On Ice final is delayed

The Strictly star is through to this year's final

Brendan Cole has shared the real reason he’s “glad” about the delay of the Dancing On Ice final.

The semi-final over a week ago saw former Strictly pro Brendan, Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt and dancer Regan Gascoigne all bag spots in the grand final.

Many viewers expected the finale to air on March 20.

However, a scheduling conflict meant that the last time on the ice has been delayed until this coming weekend (March 27).

Brendan’s remarks came following outrage from some viewers after the 2022 finalists were revealed.

Many spotted that Brendan, Kimberly and Regan all have dance experience.

One said: “#DancingOnIce is a total fix, funny how the 3 finalists are professional dancers.”

Another wrote: “So three professional dancers make the final #fix.”

However, one person said: “I am thrilled with the final three, I think they stood out as the potential final three for me a few weeks in but it was never certain until now.”
