Coronation Street spoilers for week commencing 18 May sees Owen and Ryan's angry clash over Katy.
Matthew Wolfenden and Nina Ulanova
It's been 6 months of solid training and 12 weeks of air-time but Dancing on Ice 2012 is finally over after some amazing performances. There were several top scores of 30 and plenty of Chico antics to keep us amused, but the final trophy went to Matthew Wolfenden and Nina Ulanova.
From the very start, Wolfenden dominated the ice and on his first dance routine, scored the first perfect score of the series. There on in, he was unstoppable, even though Chico tried to sway the vote with another topless routine. Click through the gallery to find out how the night unfolded...

A WELL AND TRULY DESERVED WIN, MATT ABSOLUTELY CONQUERED THE COMPETITION FROM THE FIRST WEEK - HE SHONE THROUGH, AND GOT THE RECOGNITION HE DESERVED!! - WELL DONE MATT!!
JORGIE WAS BRILLIANT TOO!! - A VERY TALENTED, AND LOVELY GIRL.
CHICO HAD HIS EGO DENTED.............AT LAST!! - EVEN THOUGH HE TRIED TO SWAY THE VOTE WITH HIS BARE CHEST, MUSCLES AND 'THRUSTING' CROTCH!! - YUK!
JANE AND CHRIS STILL HAVE THE 'MAGIC' AND IT IS A SPELL BINDING EXPERIENCE TO WATCH THEM...............LONG MAY
THEY CONTINUE TO DO THIS SERIES...............WONDERFUL!!
Totally deserved in my opinion: although Jorgie was arguably equally deserving to be this year's Dancing On Ice Champion: given that like Matthew, she had been exceptionally good throughout the competition.
The final showdown between the top two celebrities was essentially a cabon copy of that which transpired last season: with Matthew representing Sam, and Jorgie representing Laura.
As much as I loved Jorgie (as I loved Laura last year), I realized that Matthew probably just had the edge overall in terms of skating execution, and so I am as happy for him to win as I would have been had Jorgie won.
I guess Jorgie may have made too many young women too green with envy - being sooooooo pretty; cute; fit, and sexy - to vote for her over Matthew in the end?
Either way I think the result turned out precisely as it should be.
As for Chico getting 10s across the board for wiggling his bum, and flexing his muscles....oh come on PLEASE!!!
I'm glad voters weren't too swayed by this crass exhibitionism: not to mention silly judging, to save him: when clearly both Matthew & Jorgie were <> are better skaters > ice dancers.
All in all this was a fantastic contest: which produced the best standard of skating > ice dancing we've probably seen yet?
Congratulations to Matthew. I think he's the best male skater to win DOI so far. Well done to Jorgie and Chico too. Out of all the celebrities Chico definitely improved the most every week.
I hope Katarina is on the ice panel again as she's my favourite judge.
I'm looking forward to the one-off DOI Olympic Heroes Special, especially with lovely Colin Jackson who I think will do really well on the show.
