Another, referring to the moment Nile's win was announced, said: "The look on Vanessa face when her name wasn't called," followed by a line of laughing face emojis.

Speaking after the result Olympian Nile said: "It's meant so much to me. I want to thank everyone who voted back home.

"If Dancing On Ice is anything other than entertainment – we've got 11 human beings of all different shapes and sizes stood on this stage with an allocated time to get good at something.

"We've proved that we can do it, and what an inspirational show."

"If you work hard and you put your mind to it, you can achieve anything you want to."

Vanessa and Joey look set to be pulled miles apart as he will return home to Essex while she heads home to Berlin.

The pair have reportedly fallen for each other over the course of the current 15th season.

A source told The Sun on Sunday: "Vanessa and Joey have really fallen for each other but neither are sure if they want a long-distance relationship.

"It is going to come as a huge shock for the pair.

"Joey might be smitten, but he has a busy work schedule in the UK and doesn’t speak German."

Joey revealed recently that he went in to the contest with the intention of being paired with Vanessa, explaining: "I wanted Vanessa from the start - I did my research."
