Dancing On Ice: Ray Quinn Tops The Leaderboard In 80’s Week

In a 1980’s themed week, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Torvill and Dean’s Bolero, which won them gold in 1984, Ray performed to Van Halen’s Jump. And Jump he did! His fast paced, action packed routine (which was actually full of jumps) wowed the judges and consequently earned himself an almost perfect score of 39.5.

The judges sang Ray’s praises, with Karen simply saying, “It was amazing.” Usually critical Jason Gardiner added, “You are blurring the lines between the professional and the celebrity. I forget you are on ice.”

Ashley commented, “You just kill it. I don’t think you could have a bad week because you go out every week and just kill it.”

Guest (and previous) judge for this week only Nicky was slightly more critical, saying, “It is a little scratchy and could be a little faster. It was a fantastic performance but not quite perfect for me yet.” Nicky scored Ray a 9.5, meaning he narrowly missed out on a perfect score.

However, Ray is still top of the leaderboard, with Hayley 3 points behind him in second place. Is there no beating him?!
