Bonnie was eliminated from the competition on Sunday after being put up for the public vote when she lost her ice duel with Gareth Gates.
Finding herself in the skate-off with actor Sam Attwater, Bonnie seemed unsurprised when the judges decided to keep him in the competition.
The singer, who was crowned the ice champion during the very first year of the programme, told hosts Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley she saw the final 'all-star' series as "a celebration, not a competition".
"I was very reluctant to go back to the series because I had such a great time (the first time), it was the very first series and it was so new and exciting," she told This Morning's Phillip and Holly.
"And nobody expected anybody to do anything.
"I thought "how are we going to do this? How is it going to be the same?"
"It has changed (since the first series) and I don't know whether that is because people know what is expected of them now.
"I'm relieved I'm in one piece because it is very tough!
"To be honest, when we did the first series I thought we were just going to skate out and stop and then say "thank you very much, give me a round of applause".
With her natural ability on the ice, Bonnie paved the way for celebrities who would take part in future years - she was even the first to attempt the dreaded headbanger move.
"I wasn't actually meant to be in the show at all because I was the reserve and so I got three weeks training and was then shoved on my head with the first headbanger.
"And that sort of started it all off, so I do apologise for all the injuries that have occurred since."
