After Rebekah Vardy was voted off on Sunday night, Sonny said the reality star made a deal with him to spur him through the final stages of the competition – a signed Jamie Vardy shirt.

Rebekah’s husband is Leicester player Jamie Vardy and as a huge fan Sonny asked his co-star if she’d promise him a signed top in exchange for winning the competition.

He said: “Rebekah Vardy will be a big loss backstage because she’s one of the kindest people, she always talks to everyone.

“I waited for her after she was voted off to say she’ll be missed and that sort of stuff, and she said to me ‘you’ve got to out there now and you’ve got to win this thing’ and I said, ‘if I win do you promise me I can get a signed Jamie Vardy top?’

“And she said, ‘yeah I can promise that. I can do one better and try and get him on your show.’ And I said ‘even better!’”

Sonny also spilled his excitement on making the semi-finals, admitting “it’s a pretty cool thing to say.”

“I’m one week away from getting to the actual final, which is mad. In my eyes I’ve already won because I’ve got a lot further an I ever thought,” he added.

Dancing on Ice’s semi finals are on Sunday 7 March, where the celebrities will be skating two performances, one of which involves a prop!

Sonny revealed his routine will involve a table and honestly we can’t wait to see it.
