Jake Quickenden has been crowned this year's "Dancing on Ice" champion.

The 29-year-old singer - who first found fame as a contestant on "The X Factor" and later appeared on "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!" - triumphed after overcoming the challenge of former "Coronation Street" star Brooke Vincent in the live final.

Following his victory, Jake - whose professional partner was Vanessa Bauer - joked: "I can't get my head round it, it might mean that I don't have to do another reality show now."

In the final, Jake and Vanessa were the only couple to attempt and complete the dangerous headbanger during their routines.

And they were both overcome with joy when they were announced as the winners of the series.

Meanwhile, Brooke - who came in second place in the audience vote - joked with the show's hosts, Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, about the result of the ITV show.

The brunette beauty quipped: "Are you sure it's not a fix?"

Earlier in the programme, rugby star Max Evans became the first contestant to leave the live final.

But Max, 34, didn't harbour any bitterness and admitted he'd relished his time on "Dancing on Ice".

The dark-haired hunk - whose partner was Ale Izquierdo - shared: "I can't tell you what a special feeling this journey has been.

"Ale has been awesome and the people I have met along this journey have been incredible. Can I just thank all the people who have supported us."
