Earlier, all three finalists had skated a routine they'd entirely created themselves - including coming up with props, lighting design, costume design etc - as well as one of their favourite programmes from over the past few weeks of the show.
The public then voted to whittle it down to the two who would then battle it out skating the Bolero, ice dancing's most famous routine - which Chris and Jayne had skated at the start of the show.

Chloe Madeley had earlier failed to get through to the final two in the public vote after skating routines to Holly Valance's Kiss Kiss and (I've Had) The Time Of My Life from Dirty Dancing, so missed out on the chance to perform the Bolero and a shot at winning.

Earlier, her father Richard - who was sat in the audience with her mother Judy Finnegan - had heckled judges Jason Gardiner, Emma Bunton and Robin Cousins for not scoring her higher.

Kiss off: Chloe and Michael's routine to Holly Valance's Kiss Kiss earned her highest score of the entire show - 28.5 - and her father Richard heckled the judges, but it wasn't enough for her to win





Supportive: Chloe's parents shouted their support for their laughter from the side of the rink - as well as some good-natured heckling

Jason said of her Dirty Dancing routine, which landed her 26.5: 'It was an okay re-creation of Dirty Dancing, but if you're going to copy iconic moves like the table top lift, well yours looked like a collapsible card table to me.'
Robin agreed, saying: 'Baby wasn't necessarily in a corner, but she wasn't where she needed to be a couple of times. It was just not quite working the way it needed to.'

However, Emma said, while pointing to Jason and Robin: 'You really light the ice up and I enjoy your performance so much. It's every girls dream to do this dance - and these two are just getting old!

However, Chloe said she was still overwhelmed to come third, and told Holly and Phil: 'I'm so thrilled we got to the final, I'm on cloud nine. I've loved being here. At least you get to see Michael do his Bolero on the tour as it is a treat.'




Hair we go: Jason Gardiner was so impressed with Laura that he revealed his new hair transplant in her honour - but the public voted for Sam



Double act: Hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby said at the top of the show it would be one of the tightest finals seen yet

Laura meanwhile had come second despite landing the only set of perfect 10s on the whole series this year.

Although her initial ensemble dance to Madonna's Express Yourself only landed her 26, she wowed the judges with her reprise of her routine to the Pointer Sisters' I'm So Excited - which Laura ended with a brain-rattling overhead spin.
As reported earlier, Jason was so impressed he raised his hat to her - and revealed his new 12,000 hair transplant.

Runner-up: Despite her ensemble routine, perfect 10s and respectable Bolero, she was pipped to second post to Sam


Laura said of coming second however: 'As I said before, it's been a rollercoaster, it doesn't matter where you are on the leaderboard it's all up to the people at home.'
It seems that the public - as well as the judges - found Sam's Bolero more believable and touching - somewhat ironic considering his earlier 'faux-mance' headlines.
Jayne Torvill said of his version: 'I thought that was brilliant very moving, very passionate' as Jason enthused, 'That was incredibly captivating. Most importantly, you allowed time to breathe and execute everything - just beautiful.'

When it came to Jason's verdict on Laura's version, the judge appeared to sum up the feelings of those watching her on the show as well as those at home: 'It lacked the finesse of Sam's but overall you've been an amazing competitor.'

Laura, Sam and Chloe will all be back on the ice however when the Dancing On Ice Live tour kicks off on April 9 in Sheffield.
They will be joined by Comedy Dave Vitty, Jeff Brazier, Johnson Beharry, Vanilla Ice, Denise Welch and 2010 champion Hayley Tamaddon.
