During the live show, which saw Sonny Jay crowned the winner, Phillip joked about what had been a difficult series by whipping out a pair of crutches.
Speaking before former contestants took to the ice for one last group routine, the This Morning presenter quipped: ‘They are ready, we are ready and after the luck we’ve had this season – these are ready as well…’ at which point he picked up the crutches.
There was almost another mishap on the rink as presenter Matt Richardson and his skating partner Vicky Ogden took a tumble mid-performance.
Sonny triumphed over former Coronation Street star Faye Brookes and athlete Colin Jackson.

The finalists were tasked with performing their own Bolero routine inspired by Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean’s iconic Olympics performance, with fans being blown away by their efforts.
He was clearly shocked to hear his name being announced, telling Phil and co-host Holly Willoughby: ‘That’s mental.’
The final saw him nab his first 10s of the series as he performed a routine to a George Formby medley, with Sonny and his skating partner Angela Egan then achieving a perfect score of 40 for his Popeye themed skate.
