Spanner in the works

Ray Quinn winning the final ever series of Dancing On Ice has been called into question.

I know I have be championing him from day one - and in my defence he is pretty amazing on the ice - but after the events of the semi-final all bets are now off.

It was kind of expected that Sam Attwater would be the one to leave on Sunday. He had been in the skate-off more than any other contestant and while his skating skills were of a fantastic standard, well he was no Ray Quinn.

Beth Tweddle and Hayley Tamaddon have had the public support throughout the competition and their presence in this week's final wasn't a surprise to anyone.

What was a surprise was Ray being put in the skate-off - no-one saw that coming, especially Ray.

Ok, he had a 'bad' week in that he didn't get a perfect score for his first routine. But let's get a bit of perspective here!

So what we have now is a Dancing On Ice final where it is now anyone's game because no-one knows how the public is going to vote on the night.

Ray is clearly the best skater, but that is no guarantee he will get the votes. Hayley is loved for her partnership with Dan Whiston, but is that really a reason to be crowned the winner? And Beth's victory last year over a superior Matt Lapinskas suggests the public are behind her, but can she do it two years in a row?

Meanwhile the rumours have been circulating as to what we can expect on the final ever episode of Dancing On Ice.

I'm going to guess sparkly costumes, face-aching smiles and lots of fake tan - just for old time's sake.

Can we expect Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley to step on to the ice? One can dream...

Can we expect a routine from Torvill and Dean that will get us a more emotional than we would like to admit? Unfortunately, yes...

Can we expect a ridiculously over-nostalgic look back at all things Dancing On Ice? Obviously...

Can we expect Jason Gardiner to be nice to Beth Tweddle? Let's not get crazy...
