Dancing on Ice finalists Kimberly Wyatt, Brendan Cole and Regan Gascoigne

The three Dancing on Ice finalists hit back at claims of unfair advantage, saying their experience has made the show better.

Kimberly Wyatt, Brendan Cole and Regan Gascoigne are all professionally trained dancers.

Viewers claim that it puts them in an advantageous position over other contestants because they can learn processes and sequences faster.

But Pussycat Doll star Kimberly, 40, said: “I’ve always been known for my versatility, which is what I’ve always done.

“I’m really grateful for my dance background, but with that comes the fact that we’re aiming for things that haven’t been done before.

“When I did reverse spin split, nobody had done it before and maybe if I didn’t have a dance background I wouldn’t have had the guts to do it.

“You’re never going to convince people that you deserve to be or don’t deserve to be there.

“In the end, we all went out there and did our best to make the best series ever and I think we’re on our way to the best finale ever. now – for the three of us.”

Kimberly’s sentiments were echoed by her show’s rivals.

Brendan, 45, a former professional of the serious dancers team said: “If we were all the same, wouldn’t that make for a really boring performance?

“So it happened that all three of us had dance experience and we were all
now jostling each other to make a most unbelievable television”.

And stage star Regan, 26, said being on the ice was “totally different” from any other type of dance.

Waving his hand to emphasize his point, he said: “We know how to operate this unit, but the steps and procedures are different.

“You do something and they go, ‘Oh, that’s wrong.

“We all started from scratch to get here so I think it’s very different.”

The trio have been finalizing their processes ahead of tonight’s final and say that although there will be no head-to-head, the night will be fraught with danger.

Regan, who collaborated with Karina Manta, said: “I was starting on a 6ft high stage and was flipping around on top of it.”

His opponent, Brendan, joked that he was “messed with nuts and bolts” to sabotage the process.

And Kimberly, whose teammate is Mark Hanretty, said: “I’m doing this kick over Mark’s head and sometimes it just doesn’t go right.

“Because he has my foot, sometimes I just fall forward – head-to-head situation with ice – so I really wanted to get it working before Sunday.

“That feels pretty dangerous.”

Brendan said he still feels bad about the scar he left with his dance partner Vanessa Bauer after his skate cut her back. “I left my mark on Vanessa. It’s still there,” he said.

“Things happen in skating that you can’t see coming.

“When I slashed her back, I was actually in the middle of the elevator and my foot and my kidnapper went up and grabbed me and he threw me on the ice, he threw her on the ice and then the shoe My slider says ‘Slice!’ over her back.

“It can be really horrible.”

But Brendan said he agrees with the famous saying, “No pain, no benefit.”

“They will all be part of the grotesque, epic thing we’ve been doing and I think I can speak for all of us when I say we had an incredible time. Best.

“It’s a wonderful thing to be a part of.

“I’m going to miss the bumps and bruises and pain because when you’re trying to get through a pain, you know you’re in it for the right reasons.”

The trio could not reveal what they plan to do after the show but Kimberly hopes to return to the stage with the Pussycat Dolls soon.

“It’s just a game waiting for the minute,” she said. “I will continue to be hopeful and optimistic because I feel like I have unfinished business.

“I really hope we can go out there and relive the dream.”

But for now, Kimberly, Brendan and Regan are focusing all of their attention on one thing only – tonight’s final on ITV, hosted by Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

Brendan said: “We pushed each other a lot to make nice numbers and the show was really well received.

“I think the production did a phenomenal job with everything – not just us but the way they put the show and the set together. This is just an epic series to what I’ve seen in the past with Dancing on Ice and I’m really proud to be a part of this exceptional series. ”
