The dress was cinched in at the waist before falling to the floor with the delicate and gold-sequin adorned layered material.

She also showed off her radiant makeup with a close-up selfie before posing with her co-host Phillip Schofield.

The show kicked off in spectacular fashion on Sunday, with Brendan Cole, Kimberly Wyatt and Regan Gascoigne going head-to-head to be crowned series champion.

After a series dubbed the closest in the show’s history, the remaining three couples took to the rink with their Showcase before reprising their favorite skate to earn viewers’ votes, and it remains to be seen which two pairs will get to skate the coveted Bolero.

Up first were Regan and Karina with a fun-filled number to the iconic song Step In Time from Mary Poppins, transforming into chimney sweeps for the high-energy routine, and they quickly set the bar by earning top marks.

Earning the first perfect score of the night with 40 points, the fast-paced skate was lauded by the judges who noted it wouldn’t have felt out of place in a West End show.

Jayne noted: ‘From the start, the music you come alive, it’s like watching you performing in the West End it just makes it look like a really professional show, but you wouldn’t have made it work if you didn’t have the skating skills. Fantastic. ‘

Oti added: ‘You led that whole skate, it was all about you, the character you got right, there was nothing about that I didn’t love, absolutely brilliant.’

Ahead of the final, Regan was dubbed a 2-5 odds-on favorite to win the ITV reality show, with Brendan branded the second favorite at 3-1, while Kimberly was priced as the 6-1 outsider of the final three.

Leading bookmaker Coral predicted: ‘Regan has been our favorite for a very long time now and it would be a big shock if he didn’t go on to be crowned winner of the 2022 series of Dancing On Ice. He’s odds on to get his hands on the trophy. ‘

PR executive Harry Aitkenhead continued of the son of former England footballer Paul Gascoigne: ‘If there is to be an upset, Brendan is the most likely to cause it according to our betting whilst Kimberly is the rank outsider of the final three.’

Brendan recently revealed it was ‘tiring’ that Strictly Come Dancing ‘pushed the same narrative for 15 series’ that he was the ‘competitive one’ on the show, telling MailOnline that he was only able to show ‘one side of him’ when he was a pro on the BBC program.

He then lauded Dancing On Ice for ‘showing him in a lovely light’, including more of his fun personality and that he likes to ‘muck around’ with other contestants.

Two weeks earlier, Connor Ball and Alexandra Schauman, and Kye Whyte and Tippy Packard narrowly missed out on a place in the final after being eliminated in the semi-final.
