DANCING on Ice lost more than one million viewers amid fears the show is cursed following a series of injuries.

The celebrity skating competition saw Capital FM Sonny Jay take home the coveted winners' trophy.

But the series has been plagued by dropouts with several stars injured during their time on the ice.

And now reports suggest the ITV show was viewed by only 3.7 million – a huge reduction on previous finale viewing figures.

According to Super TV, ratings for the show hosted by Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield have dropped by a million each year.

They wrote: "RATINGS: This cursed series of #DancingOnIce ended with an all-time low of 3.7m viewers last night, down drastically on previous finals.


"2021: 3.7 million 2020: 4.8 million 2019: 5.7 million".

On the figures, ITV representatives told The Mirror: "The show peaked with 5.5m viewers and was the most watched programme for 16-34 viewers in the slot.

"In terms of consolidated viewing, the series is currently averaging over 5m viewers."

During Sunday's final Sonny beat off Coronation Street star Faye Brookes after Olympian Colin Jackson was eliminated in third place.

After being revealed as the winner of the public vote, he said: "That is mental, thank you so much."

Faye Brookes, who finished second, said: "All I wanted to do was get here.

"I did it as a personal challenge and it couldn't have gone to a better guy."
