Dancing On Ice finalist Colin Jackson jokes he's on the show to get a 'summer body' after putting ON weight in training

DANCING On Ice finalist Colin Jackson has joked he's on the show to get a "summer body" after putting ON weight during training.

Colin confessed his sweet tooth has got the better of him -and left him and pro partner Klabera Komini squabbling over sweets and the last wine gum.

The Olympic hurdling champ, who at 54 is the oldest contestant of the series, revealed his motivation for doing DOI to The Sun.

He joked: "I haven’t got a summer body.

"So I’ll have to concentrate on the competition, get a summer body, then maybe go on the look to see if there’s that magical person who can whisk me off into the sunset. "

The Welshman said: "Klabera and I are giggling all the time –  and sharing too many sweets –  mainly wine gums! "


Earlier this year, Colin, who came out as gay aged 50, revealed the real reason he’s not dancing with another man on the show.

He said: "I get on better with women, to be honest."

Fans have been delighted to see him burst into fits of laughter afterevery skate with Klabera.

He added: "If you are going to be with someone 24/7 it better be someone you get on with –  and we get on so well."

Colin will face Corrie's Faye Brookes  and Capital DJ Sonny Jay in the finals on Sunday.

He made it through to the grand finale after judges chose to save him in the skate off.

The decision to send home Lady Leshurr split fans with some calling the show a 'fix.'

Colin broke down in tears as he was voted through.


He had performed an emotional skate dedicated to his late father during the course of the evening, while Faye's skate was dedicated to her brother who battled Leukaemia and survived.

Sonny's skate was a tribute to his tragic best pal and producer Joe.

The glittering Dancing on Ice final will be on ITV next week at 6pm.
