Bez joined Holly Willoughby and Alison Hammond as he opened up on his DOI journey.

During the segment, the star explained that he’s backing a number of his fellow contestants to win – but doesn’t see himself in the final.

After Alison quizzed him on a potential winner, Bez confessed: “Well it is hard to say, because I really get on with everybody.

“I think after watching Connor last night, he’s come up leaps and bounds. He’s my outside favourite.

“It could be any of the top three skaters. Regan, Brendan or Kimberley. Kimberley maybe… it would be nice to see a woman win it this year.”

Holly added in: “It could still be you. You never never know.”

However, Bez graciously responded: “You know, I think when it gets to the final, it should be judged by your skating skills.

“I think the best skaters should be in there.”

Bez also admitted that he was shocked after dodging the bottom two last night.

If it was a true skating competition, I’d be long gone

Rachel Stevens was sent home after facing the skate off with Kye Whyte.

He continued: “I can’t believe it because if it was a true skating competition, I’d be long gone. Thanks to the viewers and the people getting behind and supporting me for keeping me in each week.

“I thought I was going out last week, and my heart was going.”
