As the season draws to a close,

0:00:040:00:06

there's one more event in the calendar

0:00:060:00:08

that everyone is talking about...

0:00:080:00:10

It's Gala Day.

0:00:210:00:22

-BOTH:

-It's Gala Day!

0:00:580:01:00

The day has finally come.

0:01:040:01:06

It's a lot more exciting than just any other day at the rink.

0:01:070:01:11

We worry about everything because anything can go wrong.

0:01:110:01:15

I'm hoping to skate as well as I can.

0:01:150:01:18

-Morning!

-Morning!

0:01:210:01:23

At the moment, it's quite calm

0:01:270:01:29

which is kind of going to be the calm before the storm.

0:01:290:01:32

It is... It is going to get very crazy.

0:01:370:01:40

-Is it girls?

-Yeah.

0:01:400:01:42

I'm out of here!

0:01:420:01:44

Oh, yeah.

0:01:440:01:45

As our skaters get ready backstage,

0:01:480:01:50

they have no idea that Josh is arriving with some shattering news.

0:01:500:01:54

Ellie decided to stop skating completely.

0:02:010:02:04

Ellie and Josh are

0:02:060:02:07

no longer skating together.

0:02:070:02:09

I'm not sure what happened

0:02:100:02:12

with Jellie,

0:02:120:02:13

but I just know that they're not skating together any more.

0:02:130:02:17

Such a shame. They were so good.

0:02:170:02:20

If she's happy, that's really all that matters.

0:02:200:02:23

It's kind of hard

0:02:230:02:24

when one of you doesn't love the sport any more and...

0:02:240:02:27

I can totally understand where she's coming from, like,

0:02:270:02:29

if you don't enjoy it, it's such a hard sport to keep going

0:02:290:02:31

so we're all supporting her, and we're supporting Josh as well.

0:02:310:02:34

Word does spread fast in this place.

0:02:340:02:36

Most of the dancers know, obviously, but not many of the other groups do.

0:02:360:02:40

I'm a bit sad because I'm going to miss Ellie

0:02:400:02:43

cos she was, like, one of my really close friends.

0:02:430:02:46

I've taught her a very long time.

0:02:460:02:48

Josh and Ellie have grown up together.

0:02:480:02:50

And it's a very, very sad situation for us all.

0:02:500:02:54

It was a bit of a shock.

0:02:550:02:57

Everyone wishes Ellie good luck.

0:02:580:03:01

But for now, they have a show to put on,

0:03:010:03:03

as hundreds of people have bought tickets

0:03:030:03:05

to see them perform in just a few hours' time.

0:03:050:03:09

As the saying goes, the show must go on.

0:03:090:03:12

It hasn't left us with very much time to put something together.

0:03:120:03:16

However he's feeling, tonight, Josh has to perform his winning routine.

0:03:160:03:20

And there's only one person who can save the day.

0:03:200:03:23

So today, I actually have to skate with Josh.

0:03:230:03:25

I feel like today, people are going to expect to see Ellie and Josh

0:03:250:03:28

on the ice doing their number, but, obviously,

0:03:280:03:30

Ellie's not going to be here,

0:03:300:03:31

and it's going to be a little bit of a surprise.

0:03:310:03:34

It's very weird seeing Josh skate with anybody that's not Ellie.

0:03:340:03:38

Watching those two skate together is very strange.

0:03:380:03:42

Ellie had months to learn this routine,

0:03:420:03:45

but Lauren's going to have to pick it up in next to no time.

0:03:450:03:49

As the audience begin to arrive,

0:03:490:03:51

the centre's newest dance couple

0:03:510:03:52

are just going to have to give it their best shot.

0:03:520:03:55

Lauren just needs to remember to go out there

0:03:570:04:00

and have fun and enjoy herself.

0:04:000:04:02

I completely understand why she is worrying about it,

0:04:020:04:05

and Josh is worrying about it,

0:04:050:04:07

because they have only had a little amount of time.

0:04:070:04:09

At the end of the day, if they go out there, heads held high,

0:04:090:04:12

with a big smile on their face,

0:04:120:04:14

that's what the audience wants to see.

0:04:140:04:16

Someone who knows all about the ups and downs of ice dance

0:04:160:04:19

is tonight's very special guest.

0:04:190:04:22

Millions of people watched her win gold with her Bolero routine

0:04:220:04:26

in the 1984 Winter Olympics.

0:04:260:04:29

Whenever I come back to Nottingham,

0:04:310:04:32

there's a lot of nostalgia attached to it

0:04:320:04:35

because this is where I used to live

0:04:350:04:37

and where I started skating.

0:04:370:04:38

Olympic ice dance gold medallist

0:04:380:04:40

Jayne Torvill has been invited back to Nottingham,

0:04:400:04:43

to the rink where she used to train with her partner Chris,

0:04:430:04:47

to watch our ice stars following in her footsteps.

0:04:470:04:50

It is amazing that they've named the

0:04:500:04:51

square in the front of the building

0:04:510:04:53

after our routine

0:04:530:04:54

that won us the Olympic gold medal.

0:04:540:04:57

It's Bolero Square.

0:04:570:04:59

Over the years,

0:04:590:05:00

our ice stars have crossed Bolero Square hundreds of times.

0:05:000:05:04

But none have ever skated in front of this Olympic champion before.

0:05:040:05:08

She's a British legend.

0:05:080:05:11

Jayne Torvill was obviously a big inspiration

0:05:110:05:13

for a lot of the skaters here,

0:05:130:05:14

so that makes it even more special that we're putting on the gala

0:05:140:05:16

in her home rink, as well as our home rink.

0:05:160:05:19

She is someone that

0:05:190:05:21

everyone in Nottingham looks up to

0:05:210:05:23

and wants to be like.

0:05:230:05:24

I think, tonight, I'm just going to relax and enjoy myself.

0:05:240:05:28

It's only moments till show time,

0:05:290:05:31

and with word spreading that Jayne Torvill's in the audience,

0:05:310:05:35

backstage, it's all go.

0:05:350:05:38

-ALL:

-Ice, ice, ice!

0:05:380:05:40

Are you getting your skates on now?

0:05:410:05:43

In a minute, but I have, like, too much to do still.

0:05:430:05:46

Quick, shake your head to check it's OK.

0:05:460:05:48

Wait a minute, it's a bit crooked.

0:05:480:05:50

It's absolute OK.

0:05:550:05:58

-It's not OK.

-It looks fantastic.

0:05:580:06:01

I don't know.

0:06:010:06:02

-And now, we're welcoming on the ice...

-Hello!

0:06:050:06:08

Go out there and skate the best you can.

0:06:110:06:13

Perform it to the crowd.

0:06:130:06:14

I'm one of the first ones on the ice,

0:06:140:06:16

and I'm feeling really nervous about it.

0:06:160:06:19

-I can barely move my ankles.

-That's good, then.

0:06:190:06:22

I still have not got my other boot done up.

0:06:240:06:28

-Tie your laces, and then we'll come and sort you out.

-Yeah.

0:06:280:06:31

I wish I'd brought my lace puller.

0:06:350:06:37

It's really, really busy.

0:06:370:06:39

I don't want to do it any more.

0:06:410:06:44

-RADIO:

-'Do you think we are all ready in position to start on time?'

0:06:440:06:49

Um, yeah. Everybody ready. We are starting now.

0:06:490:06:52

Woohoo!

0:06:530:06:56

For ten-year-old Destiny, this will be her first ever gala.

0:06:560:07:00

She's been practising nonstop at the rink...

0:07:020:07:04

..determined to be an ice hockey player.

0:07:050:07:08

I keep falling, like Bambi.

0:07:080:07:10

She may not yet be in the team,

0:07:110:07:14

but, tonight, she is definitely in the spotlight.

0:07:140:07:16

It's show time.

0:07:170:07:18

-ANNOUNCER:

-'Ladies and gentlemen,

0:07:210:07:23

'let us put our skates on, as the National Ice Centre

0:07:230:07:25

'proudly presents your gala.'

0:07:250:07:28

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:07:280:07:29

Destiny is playing the part of a glittering snow princess

0:07:290:07:32

and Charlie is her prince.

0:07:320:07:34

-ANNOUNCER:

-'Welcome to Ice Stars!'

0:07:340:07:37

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:07:370:07:40

The rest of our ice stars live in the kingdom ruled by Kloe,

0:07:500:07:53

the ice queen.

0:07:530:07:55

APPLAUSE

0:07:550:07:57

But watch out, ice stars, the evil ice king Gurgen

0:07:570:08:00

is out to get you.

0:08:000:08:02

APPLAUSE

0:08:040:08:05

Surprise guests Joe and Molly

0:08:150:08:17

have flown back to their home rink to open tonight's show.

0:08:170:08:20

Molly is just 17.

0:08:210:08:24

The couple train in Nottingham, but have been in the USA

0:08:240:08:27

getting extra coaching

0:08:270:08:28

in preparation for the next Winter Olympics.

0:08:280:08:31

Waiting in the wings, Ella wants to prove that with Lauren by her side,

0:08:350:08:39

solo skating can still be fun.

0:08:390:08:41

# I'm loving the pain

0:08:450:08:48

# I never wanna live without it

0:08:480:08:52

# So why-y-y-y-y-y... #

0:08:520:08:54

It was a bit strange because I was used to

0:08:540:08:57

being in a partner.

0:08:570:08:59

# Now we're screaming just to see who's louder... #

0:08:590:09:04

And this year, I was just skating solo like Lauren.

0:09:040:09:08

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:09:110:09:13

I'm touching the lucky door to give us good luck so we don't fall.

0:09:170:09:21

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:09:300:09:33

I think it went really well.

0:09:330:09:35

But I didn't go splat on my face so it was fine.

0:09:350:09:38

Can you go and get changed?

0:09:380:09:39

The Silhouettes are British champions.

0:09:410:09:44

And tonight, they are here to prove to friends and family

0:09:440:09:48

just why that is.

0:09:480:09:49

All our ice stars are desperate to show Jayne Torvill what they can do.

0:09:500:09:55

But backstage, there's been a rebellion from the hockey players.

0:09:550:09:59

Me and Liam are putting our foot down.

0:09:590:10:00

We're not dancing. It's just not something we do.

0:10:000:10:03

Me and Liam are doing sort of a skate,

0:10:050:10:07

I call it a skate, with the under-11 team.

0:10:070:10:10

And we're just down here in our own private changing room

0:10:100:10:13

which is quite cool. I'm still trying to remember which way I skate

0:10:130:10:16

without messing it up, never mind dancing.

0:10:160:10:19

It was really exciting to perform in front of that many people.

0:10:240:10:26

And Jayne Torvill.

0:10:260:10:28

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:10:300:10:33

Liam and Rais may be part of the most reluctant synchro team ever.

0:10:360:10:40

But they're looking pretty good.

0:10:410:10:44

# Ice, ice, baby

0:10:470:10:48

# Vanilla ice, ice, baby... #

0:10:500:10:52

While the ice hockey team are smashing it out on the rink,

0:10:540:10:57

Becky is getting ready for her first-ever gala solo.

0:10:570:11:02

How do you feel about doing a solo for the first time?

0:11:020:11:05

-Um, OK. Better than I thought I'd feel.

-Are you nervous?

0:11:050:11:10

I feel a bit more relaxed for this one.

0:11:100:11:12

Last year, Becky was just part of the figure team performance.

0:11:120:11:16

But since then, she's taken the circuit by storm

0:11:160:11:19

and is now British champion.

0:11:190:11:21

And that means tonight she'll have her first ever gala solo

0:11:210:11:27

in her very own spotlight.

0:11:270:11:29

If you forget something, no-one's going to know.

0:11:320:11:34

Just make sure you do perform, basically. Smile.

0:11:340:11:38

Everyone's going to love your music.

0:11:380:11:41

-Just smile.

-It wouldn't surprise me if...

-Make eye contact.

0:11:410:11:44

That's my tip.

0:11:440:11:46

With Rais and Liam nailing their performance,

0:11:460:11:49

all eyes will now be on the centre's newest rising star.

0:11:490:11:53

I'm quite nervous about doing jumps in the spotlight.

0:11:530:11:58

# Ooooh

0:11:580:12:00

# Singing

0:12:000:12:02

# Oh, I'm so in love with you

0:12:020:12:06

# Ooooh

0:12:060:12:08

# Singing, you, ooooh

0:12:080:12:10

# Singing, you, ooooh

0:12:100:12:14

# Singing, oh, I'm so in love with you

0:12:140:12:20

# I'm so in love with you

0:12:230:12:26

# And I feel love

0:12:260:12:29

# Do you feel love

0:12:290:12:33

# And I feel love

0:12:330:12:36

# Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh... #

0:12:360:12:41

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:12:410:12:44

Your solo was really good.

0:12:490:12:51

I saw it from the side. It looked amazing.

0:12:510:12:55

With faultless performances on the ice,

0:13:000:13:02

the pressure is piling on Lauren

0:13:020:13:03

as a last-minute replacement for Josh's partner, Ellie.

0:13:030:13:07

Is it weird skating with someone else?

0:13:080:13:11

Kind of, but you're kind of the same height as Ellie.

0:13:110:13:14

Just shorter arms and legs!

0:13:140:13:16

SHE LAUGHS

0:13:160:13:17

How do you feel?

0:13:170:13:19

OK, I just don't know if I trust you enough not to drop me.

0:13:190:13:22

Josh and Lauren have decided to perform

0:13:260:13:29

one of Jellie's trickiest lifts.

0:13:290:13:31

And with minutes to go, the nerves are starting to build.

0:13:320:13:36

We're just practising the lift because in practice, we fell over.

0:13:380:13:42

So we're just trying to make sure that won't happen on the ice.

0:13:420:13:45

She keeps going down my back,

0:13:450:13:46

which is what happened when we were on the ice,

0:13:460:13:48

and she fell forwards and I fell backwards.

0:13:480:13:51

I am a bit stressed.

0:13:510:13:52

I'm calm, I'm calm.

0:13:540:13:56

-You don't look very calm.

-I'm not calm. That's why.

0:13:580:14:01

Please don't drop me.

0:14:010:14:03

It took hours and hours to get the lifts right for Jellie.

0:14:040:14:07

So pulling it off tonight is a big ask.

0:14:090:14:11

Especially in front of a packed audience

0:14:130:14:16

and Britain's most famous ice dancer.

0:14:160:14:19

# I will survive and be the one who's stronger

0:14:210:14:27

# I will not beg you to stay... #

0:14:270:14:30

I was quite nervous with skating

0:14:310:14:33

with someone else for the first time.

0:14:330:14:35

When we were on the ice, we were talking to each other

0:14:370:14:39

and laughing, so it was quite good.

0:14:390:14:41

# I will survive and be the one who's stronger

0:14:440:14:50

# I will not beg you to stay

0:14:500:14:55

# I will move on and you should know I mean it

0:14:560:15:01

# Wild horses run in me... #

0:15:010:15:06

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:15:060:15:08

Just wow!

0:15:080:15:10

That's how a real ice star seizes a challenge

0:15:100:15:13

and delivers a performance in the spotlight.

0:15:130:15:16

I'm so happy.

0:15:160:15:19

Well, you know that Twizzle at the start,

0:15:190:15:21

I went to do a normal Twizzle.

0:15:210:15:22

So I didn't know when to jump for the first one,

0:15:220:15:25

so it was just a normal Twizzle for the first one

0:15:250:15:28

and I went, I just stuck my leg out.

0:15:280:15:29

Tonight, over 200 skaters have got parts in the gala

0:15:330:15:37

to perform in front of Jayne Torvill.

0:15:370:15:40

But Kloe, Josh and The Icicles are still waiting for their big moment.

0:15:400:15:45

I think this is OK now.

0:15:450:15:46

We're feeling great.

0:15:460:15:47

We're ready to go and have some fun and perform our routine.

0:15:470:15:50

I'm just going to the toilet for luck.

0:15:500:15:52

I just have to rush. I think we're on in about ten minutes.

0:15:580:16:01

-ALL:

-Go, reindeers!

0:16:080:16:11

Woohoo-hoo!

0:16:130:16:15

So far, we've seen an evil king, reindeer in golden boots,

0:16:170:16:22

and dancing penguins in this wonderful frozen kingdom.

0:16:220:16:26

But tonight, Kloe has the starring role.

0:16:260:16:29

She's playing the part of a beautiful ice queen

0:16:290:16:32

draped in a silver cape.

0:16:320:16:34

I've never actually had a prop before for anything.

0:16:340:16:37

So this is the first time, and it's quite, like, hard to deal with.

0:16:370:16:41

So I'm a bit nervous.

0:16:410:16:42

When I got this yesterday, it was really hard to do it with it

0:16:420:16:46

because it pretty much goes down to the floor.

0:16:460:16:49

I was always excited, but now that my grandparents are here,

0:16:490:16:52

it's, like, even better.

0:16:520:16:53

So I feel like this is going to be the best gala we've ever done.

0:16:530:16:57

Kloe had a big surprise when her grandparents secretly travelled

0:16:590:17:02

over 1,000 miles from Hungary

0:17:020:17:04

to see her perform in tonight's gala.

0:17:040:17:09

This solo is a big deal.

0:17:090:17:11

It's really hard.

0:17:110:17:12

I'm just hoping that it will all go well with this,

0:17:120:17:15

and then the rest, I can do.

0:17:150:17:18

I'm going to go now.

0:17:180:17:19

Go for it, Kloe! Good luck.

0:17:220:17:24

Thank you.

0:17:240:17:26

As the novice synchro girls finish their routine,

0:17:310:17:33

Kloe, the ice queen, can't wait to get on and start hers.

0:17:330:17:38

Take your time about it. You're beautiful.

0:17:380:17:41

# Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

0:17:480:17:53

# One day

0:17:530:17:54

# And I'll rise up

0:17:540:17:57

# I'll rise like the day

0:17:570:17:59

# I'll rise up

0:17:590:18:01

# I'll rise unafraid

0:18:010:18:03

# I'll rise up

0:18:030:18:05

# And I'll do it a thousand times again

0:18:050:18:11

# For you, ooooh, ooooh, ooooh

0:18:110:18:15

# For you, ooooh, ooooh, ooooh

0:18:150:18:19

# You, oooh... #

0:18:190:18:22

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:18:220:18:23

# For you, ooooooh

0:18:230:18:29

# We will rise

0:18:290:18:31

# We will rise

0:18:310:18:32

# We will rise up

0:18:320:18:39

# We'll rise... #

0:18:390:18:42

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:18:420:18:44

# I'll rise up

0:18:440:18:46

# Rise like the day

0:18:460:18:48

# I'll rise up

0:18:480:18:50

# In spite of the ache

0:18:500:18:53

# I will rise

0:18:530:18:55

# A thousand times again

0:18:550:18:58

# And we'll rise up... #

0:18:590:19:02

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:19:020:19:03

I was thinking about my grandparents and my sister and, obviously,

0:19:030:19:06

my mum as well. And I skated for them. I was looking around.

0:19:060:19:11

I could see faces, but it's not really clear

0:19:110:19:13

when you have the spotlight

0:19:130:19:15

so I was smiling at everyone I saw and, like,

0:19:150:19:17

hoping that one of them was them.

0:19:170:19:19

# For you, oooh, oooh, oooh

0:19:210:19:25

# For you

0:19:250:19:28

# For you, ooooh. #

0:19:280:19:32

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:19:340:19:38

I did it. I didn't fall in the cape.

0:19:410:19:43

Actually, I think it might have been the best I've done it,

0:19:430:19:46

so I'm really happy.

0:19:460:19:48

# Wake up in the morning

0:19:480:19:50

# With the sunlight in my eyes

0:19:500:19:53

# No, my head don't feel so bright

0:19:530:19:55

# What the hell happened last night?... #

0:19:550:19:58

There's so many things that can go wrong on Gala Day,

0:19:580:20:00

like missing their routines, falling over.

0:20:000:20:04

It's definitely not a competition today.

0:20:040:20:06

It's a very different atmosphere.

0:20:060:20:09

And tonight, instead of a panel of judges watching,

0:20:090:20:12

Josh has an Olympian.

0:20:120:20:15

# I want to run away... #

0:20:150:20:17

# I feel the shadows hanging over

0:20:290:20:33

# They're waiting to come closer

0:20:330:20:36

# To come and take me away

0:20:360:20:38

# I can feel my heart skip

0:20:390:20:43

# Every time that I slip

0:20:430:20:46

# I want to run away

0:20:460:20:50

# I feel the shadows hanging over... #

0:21:000:21:04

It went really well until, like, the last two seconds.

0:21:040:21:06

I, like, fell over just turning around. I just kind of got confused.

0:21:060:21:09

I did, like, the spin and I thought I was facing

0:21:090:21:12

the wrong direction, and I tried to turn around and just went,

0:21:120:21:14

like, roly-poly kind of thing. So kind of like died on the floor.

0:21:140:21:19

Other than that, it was all right.

0:21:190:21:21

Well done.

0:21:210:21:23

-Thanks, darling. Well done to you, too.

-Thank you.

0:21:230:21:25

What happened on the fall?

0:21:250:21:26

It was really funny.

0:21:260:21:28

I kind of felt bad for you but I was laughing at the same time.

0:21:280:21:31

It's all right.

0:21:310:21:32

I was just, like,

0:21:320:21:33

I did everything and there was, like, two seconds left,

0:21:330:21:35

didn't know where I was. I went to turn around and went...

0:21:350:21:38

-on the floor.

-Did you, like...

0:21:380:21:39

-What did you think?

-I was confused.

0:21:390:21:41

I was, like, on the floor and the music was nearly finished

0:21:410:21:43

and I was like, "What happened?"

0:21:430:21:45

-It was all right.

-It was fine.

0:21:450:21:46

# Is your lover

0:21:460:21:48

# Playing on your side?

0:21:480:21:50

# Said he loves you

0:21:500:21:52

# But he ain't got time

0:21:520:21:54

# Here's the answer

0:21:540:21:56

# Come and get it

0:21:560:21:58

# At a knock-down price... #

0:21:580:22:01

As The Icicles close the show...

0:22:010:22:03

# Full of honey just to make him sweet... #

0:22:030:22:07

..all the skaters head onto the ice to take a bow.

0:22:070:22:10

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:22:120:22:14

# So come and get it while you've still got time... #

0:22:140:22:16

They were brilliant, and it was amazing.

0:22:190:22:22

Really, we are so proud of everyone.

0:22:220:22:23

I'm very proud.

0:22:230:22:25

It's been an incredible gala.

0:22:260:22:29

Over 200 skaters have come together to celebrate

0:22:290:22:33

the end of the season.

0:22:330:22:34

# How you been to me

0:22:340:22:36

# I got the recipe

0:22:360:22:38

# It's all black magic

0:22:380:22:40

# It's all black magic

0:22:400:22:42

# Take a sip from a secret potion

0:22:420:22:44

# One taste and you'll be mine

0:22:440:22:46

# It's a spell that can't be broken

0:22:460:22:48

# It will give you one more night... #

0:22:480:22:51

Jayne Torvill's so impressed with what she's seen,

0:22:510:22:53

she's gone backstage to meet our skaters.

0:22:530:22:56

I thought you were all brilliant tonight.

0:22:580:23:00

You must have worked really hard on those routines

0:23:000:23:02

and done lots of hours.

0:23:020:23:04

-And, Charlie, you were hockey skating.

-Yeah.

0:23:040:23:07

-I play in the under-11 hockey team.

-Under-11?

0:23:070:23:09

-And what position do you play?

-I play first-line centre.

0:23:090:23:13

You see, that doesn't mean anything to me.

0:23:130:23:15

I've asked you that now, and I don't know what it means.

0:23:150:23:18

-I'm Jayne.

-I'm Josh.

-Josh, hi.

-Kloe.

-Kloe.

0:23:200:23:24

-You felt like everything went well?

-BOTH:

-Yeah.

0:23:240:23:27

-Both our performances went pretty well.

-Yeah, I thought so.

-Thank you.

0:23:270:23:31

Well done.

0:23:310:23:33

Just being watched by an Olympic skater and being around her,

0:23:330:23:37

I think it was really, really huge for our skaters.

0:23:370:23:41

Knowing that Jayne didn't find her ice dance partner Chris

0:23:410:23:44

until she was 15 means that Josh and Ella find her an inspiration.

0:23:440:23:49

Even if they are a little star-struck.

0:23:490:23:51

Josh, hi.

0:23:510:23:52

-And you're both ice dancers?

-Yeah.

-But you don't dance together?

-No.

0:23:520:23:56

Just think about the future now because

0:23:560:23:58

you've put a lot of effort and time into your skating, I'm sure.

0:23:580:24:01

So it's not all lost, no?

0:24:010:24:03

You've still got that to move forward with.

0:24:030:24:05

-Oh, well, good luck to both of you.

-Thank you.

0:24:050:24:08

I enjoyed watching the show tonight

0:24:080:24:09

and enjoyed watching you in it, too.

0:24:090:24:11

Thank you.

0:24:110:24:13

It's been great coming back to Nottingham. It always is.

0:24:130:24:15

I had a lovely time, and I hope they invite me back next year.

0:24:150:24:18

It was good to have someone like Jayne Torvill in the audience.

0:24:180:24:21

It was really inspiring for everyone,

0:24:210:24:22

and it was great to meet her afterwards as well.

0:24:220:24:24

She's inspired so many of us.

0:24:240:24:26

All the hours of practising have paid off.

0:24:260:24:29

This has been a show everyone will remember.

0:24:290:24:32

It was really nice skating in front of my friends and family

0:24:330:24:36

because they never really come to my training sessions.

0:24:360:24:39

-Well done.

-Thanks, darling.

0:24:420:24:43

# So glad you came... #

0:24:460:24:48

I think the gala went really well,

0:24:500:24:52

but the best part was my friends

0:24:520:24:54

coming to watch with a massive banner.

0:24:540:24:56

# I'm glad you came... #

0:24:570:25:01

-Did you enjoy it?

-Yeah, it was good. It was fun.

0:25:010:25:03

I've just seen somebody coming for your autograph.

0:25:030:25:07

What's it like to be a superstar?

0:25:070:25:09

# Stay with me, I can make

0:25:090:25:10

# Make you glad you came... #

0:25:100:25:12

I think the gala went really well.

0:25:120:25:14

Me and Lauren managed to do the lift.

0:25:140:25:16

I think Lauren was really happy that I didn't drop her.

0:25:160:25:20

# The universe will never be the same

0:25:200:25:23

# I'm glad you came

0:25:230:25:26

# I'm glad you came... #

0:25:260:25:29

I think this gala was amazing,

0:25:290:25:31

and it's kind of sad that it's over because it's always so short,

0:25:310:25:34

but we'll just do it again next year,

0:25:340:25:36

and maybe it'll be even better.

0:25:360:25:38

# I'm glad you came... #

0:25:390:25:41

It was painful, stressful, but, at the end,

0:25:410:25:45

of course, they were brilliant.

0:25:450:25:47

And it was amazing, really, we are so proud of everyone.

0:25:470:25:50

# I'm glad you came... #

0:25:510:25:54

It's been a dramatic season for our ice stars.

0:25:560:25:59

The Silhouettes, Becky and Josh, all became British champions.

0:26:010:26:06

I'm not going to cry.

0:26:060:26:08

Ask a question before I start crying.

0:26:090:26:13

THEY CHEER

0:26:130:26:15

The Icicles triumphed in Salzburg.

0:26:160:26:20

THEY CHEER

0:26:200:26:24

Aren scored for England in Quebec.

0:26:240:26:27

Adriano and Ella just missed out on

0:26:280:26:32

a medal at the British Championships...

0:26:320:26:34

SHE CRIES

0:26:340:26:37

..and Adriano left for Italy.

0:26:370:26:40

His face was kind of really disappointed.

0:26:410:26:44

I knew it wasn't a positive thing.

0:26:440:26:46

Jellie's fame spread across the UK.

0:26:470:26:51

I heard someone scream, "Oh, it's Jellie!"

0:26:510:26:54

But all the hours on the ice took its toll,

0:26:540:26:56

and Ellie was left exhausted.

0:26:560:26:59

I do seven days a week skating and go to school as well.

0:26:590:27:03

You just want to go back to bed.

0:27:030:27:05

I just felt heavy, and I couldn't do anything. I was just so tired.

0:27:070:27:13

I think it is the hardest thing

0:27:130:27:16

because there's two of you to make a decision for.

0:27:160:27:18

They have gone through everything together,

0:27:180:27:22

all the highs and lows of their skating careers.

0:27:220:27:25

It's all been experienced together.

0:27:250:27:28

It's quite sad that she decided not to skate any more.

0:27:280:27:31

But we're still friends.

0:27:310:27:32

# I'm going to swing

0:27:320:27:37

# From the chandelier... #

0:27:370:27:40

Well done.

0:27:400:27:42

That was then. But what about now?

0:27:420:27:45

Kloe and Josh are practising their own Bolero routine

0:27:450:27:48

which you'll see on the CBBC website.

0:27:480:27:51

And...wait for it...

0:27:510:27:54

I was contacted by a coach from another ice rink

0:27:540:27:57

about a potential try-out for Ella

0:27:570:28:00

and I'm very pleased to say it went really well.

0:28:000:28:03

And the little boy has chosen to skate with Ella.

0:28:030:28:06

She's got a big smile on her face again

0:28:060:28:10

and the future is very bright for her now.

0:28:100:28:12

So the season may be over, but the next one looks even more dramatic.

0:28:140:28:19

For now...

0:28:200:28:22

It's a wrap.

0:28:220:28:23

As the season draws to a close there's one more event in the calendar that everyone's talking about - it's gala day and this year the theme is the Frozen Kingdom. All the ice stars gather together for what promises to be a sensational performance, but as the skaters are getting ready and finishing touches are being made, there's some shattering news that breaks at the rink.
