Dancing On Ice skated to a close on Sunday night with Joe Swash and pro dancer Alex Murphy winning the series. After months of hard work and training relentlessly, the cast let off steam at a raucous wrap party.
The party kicked off with the presenter of all presenters, Phillip Schofield, hosting the event speaking to the crowd through a microphone, cracking jokes in front as guests sat round on tables. Then later on, it descended into the cast and crew taking to the dance floor instead of the ice.
Contestant Maura Higgins was also in attendance, looking super glamorous in a black mini dress compete with a plunging neckline. Having recently broken up with professional dancer and fellow Love Islander Curtis Pritchard, the star looked stunning as she attended the party alone.
The group danced away as the celebrated a successful series and none more than former presenter and skating contestant Trisha Goddard, who was seen dominating the dance floor with John Barrowman and winner Joe Swash.
EastEnders star Joe won the show, but many fans watching were shocked after runner-up Perri Kiely, of the dance troop Diversity, had pulled out all the stops by performing a backflip on the ice, as well as what skating legend Christopher Dean described as the “best Bolero ever seen”.
However, Perri didn’t see to mind as he was seen tucking into doughnuts as he left the venue with judge and friend Ashley Banjo. He took to Instagram after the show to say: "I couldn't have asked for a better week to end it all.

"I just want to say thank you for all the messages and those showing the love. And I'm getting loads of messages saying, 'gutted you didn't win' and stuff.
"I couldn't have asked for a better week to end it all."
No wonder the group were in such high spirits, as there was plenty of food and drink on offer including an amazing-looking 'Dancing On Ice' branded vodka luge that no doubt lubricated the evening.

Joe Swash danced the night away after girlfriend Stacey Solomon headed home where she took to Instagram stories to say: "I really wanna say thank you by the way, not just to people who have voted just thank you to anyone who has ever been nice, kind and supported someone and built them up, you have no idea what difference that makes to somebody."
The mother-of-three added: "I still can't believe it, EVERYONE in that final deserved to win so it's hard to believe Joe done it. We are so proud and happy for him, we love you to the moon back @realjoeswashy." [sic]
