Jayne Torvill’s Dancing on Ice Cries Over Regan Gascoigne’s Big Breakthrough UK News

Dancing on Ice judge Jayne Torvill was left in tears on Sunday’s show about Regan Gascoigne’s performance as she and other judges said the bookies favorite had ‘a breakthrough moment “.

While he’s been the bookmakers’ favorite to win from day one, Regan has admitted frustration in recent weeks, after failing to match the high scores racked up by rivals Brendan Cole and Kimberley Wyatt.

Gazza’s son also suffered a few stumbles during routines, but on Sunday night, when competitors were tasked with replicating routines performed by judges and skating icons Torvill and Dean, Regan hit a high streak of 40 out of 40 .

Professionally trained dancer and partner Karina Manta performed a Barnam-inspired number, and as she delivered her critique, Jayne was moved to tears.

She told the 26-year-old: “We know that technically your skating has always been good, but tonight it all fell into place.”

She added: ‘I’m getting emotional’, as she started to cry as her colleague Oti Mabuse interrupted her: ‘Love to see this!’

Regan himself ended up holding back tears as he said it meant a lot to be able to do a routine like that.

Regan was again supported in the crowd by his older sister Bianca Gascoigne, who came into the studio weekly to cheer him on.

The audience was again criticized by some viewers at home for drowning out the contestants with their “loud screams”.

After posting her best score of the series so far, Paralympian Stef Reid found herself in the bottom two and was eliminated, after losing the Skate Off to Kye Whyte.
