The 38-year-old TV star and his professional partner Alex Murphy claimed the coveted crown thanks to the voting public, after overcoming competition from Libby Clegg and runner-up Perri Kiely.
The result of the series was announced by co-host Phillip Schofield, who said:
‘You have voted for your champion and it all comes down to this. I can tell you the vote has been incredibly close.
‘The winner of Dancing on Ice 2020 is… Joe Swash’.
Joe was visibly delighted by his success and admitted to loving his time on the programme.
The former soap star – who performed the iconic Bolero routine in front of judges Jayne Torvill and Christoper Dean – explained:
‘Honestly, this has been the most amazing experience and to share it with Alex…’.
Meanwhile, Perri heaped praise on this year’s winner.
‘Joe has come so far and I’ve genuinely made a friend for life with Joe – I love you, mate’.
Joe was also cheered on during the final by his partner Stacey Solomon, who said she was “proud” of the actor and looking forward to him returning home.
‘All of us can’t believe it. We are so proud of him he has worked so so hard. We just want him back’.
At the end of the show, Holly Willoughby confirmed Dancing on Ice will be returning to ITV in 2021.
