Ray and Maria did really well with their Jump routine so they're doing really great - but me and Hayley are creeping up on him, we're only three points behind him on the leader board now!
He's doing really well and the two of them together are doing really good stuff; really energetic, really fast stuff. What I would say is that once you're at the top it's hard to stay there; you've got to keep bringing something new to the table, so he's got a tough time ahead of him - especially as so many other contestants are creeping up behind him and snapping at his heels!
You can't have a game plan… There's no way of doing that. The twists and turns of the format make it impossible to do that. Dan Whiston and Jerrie Reeve Gareth Gates is going to be so missed He's always teaching everyone rude songs backstage; they're just brilliant and so catchy.Dancing on Ice: Hayley - ITV
I'd look out for the next big musical on the West End, penned by Gareth - we'll have to get him backstage to give us some rude songs backstage before we go on next weekend! This weekend will be very different This Sunday, it's Team Challenge - three couples work together on the ice and whichever team wins will be given double the points. But there'll be four routines for each couple to learn this week, so we're working ten times as hard - but we definitely love all the twists and turns of this series, that we get to keep things this fresh.
And it's nice to work as a team, as it's causing us to bond a lot more on the ice and work together, which is lovely.

I thought that would be my way of being able to get with Daniel. I remember crying when my mum said no. I feared that they would start going out and I was right.
I had struck up a good friendship with Daniel and desperately hoped it would be more but then I saw them kissing and my heart sank.
My dream was shattered.
And she then knew that she might finally get her chance to achieve her childhood dream of skating with the first man she ever fell for. But last year Hayley got the call she dreamed of and was invited to join the show hosted by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby. I couldn't wait to get on the ice with Daniel - 20 years after I fell for him. My dream had finally come true.
Daniel is an excellent skater and has been a brilliant teacher. Our Conga routine was so, so fast - it was full of steps and tricks and technical difficulties; and Hayley absolutely nailed it. We worked hard in the studio, in front of the mirrors, and spent hours and hours working to get our movements in sync. When you watch Torvill and Dean skate, they're always perfectly reflecting each other and that's what makes it so watchable - that's what we want.

Yes, it DID hurt when Hayley cut my ear on the ice! Hayley cutting my ear with her skating blade did hurt. I got to the end of the routine and felt something dripping down my face, but I thought I was sweating.
But then I hugged Hayley, came away and saw my blood all over her. Dan wasn't phased by his injury So I got on the stage, we saw there was a lot of blood all over the ice and I went straight down to physio to get my ear glued back together. But it was absolutely worth every little nick for Hayley to deliver what she delivered. Ray Quinn's solo performance was the best of the night… I really enjoyed Ray Quinn's solo performance - he's definitely bringing something new to the show.
He's fast, he does a lot of spins and he had a great feeling to it - he's obviously doing great and it was nice to see him skate on his own, he really enjoyed it. It was interesting to hear the judges Blind Date-style comments - and I'm sure that Jason Gardiner really enjoyed the routine!
Poor Beth Tweddle was so ill we thought she'd have to hang her skates up I've never seen Elizabeth so poorly. She was so ill, she couldn't train as much as she wanted to, she was sent home several times - the virus really did take hold of her. And it was awful to see her so upset because she never cries, so it was horrible to see one of my friends in tears. But she's an athlete, she's always professional and she did really well - she's through to the semi-final.
We're just going to keep going out there and doing what we're doing.
