And while Brendan appeared to be hot-headed out of the rink, he certainly was as cool as ever on the ice as he bagged the first nine in this year’s series of Dancing On Ice.

The ballroom dancer graced the rink with professional skating partner Vanessa Bauer, 25, on Sunday night as they exhibited their efforts to Shallow from A Star Is Born. 

The closing dance of the evening earned them an overall score of 33.5, with Diversity choreographer Ashley Banjo awarding them the one-point away from perfection.

Meanwhile Oti Mabuse scored 8.5 and Jayne Torvill and Chris Dean opted for 8.

The TV personality said: ‘It’s so beautiful to be on the ice. I watch Vanessa, I watch these skaters doing such beauty. I love it. That was a lovely one.’ 

Brendan’s second skate comes after it was reported that his wife of eleven years has been feeling ‘anxious and emotional and p***ed off at times’ during his Dancing On Ice stint.  

While wife Zoe, 37, has been ‘fully supportive’ of her spouse’s decision to partake in the show, she is said to have described herself as a ‘Dancing On Ice widow’.

According to The Sun, the former Strictly star rented an apartment in the same block as Vanessa near the Slough Ice Arena, despite his Bucks home being just a 40-minute drive away.

Meanwhile, Zoe and their children Aurelia, nine, and three-year-old Danté were holidaying in their Mallorca holiday home, where the strains of solo parenting had been claimed to take their toll.

A friend of the blogger’s told the publication: ‘[Zoe] is fully supportive of Brendan’s decision to do Dancing On Ice, but it has not been easy looking after the kids by herself for so long while he is skating.

‘She has felt anxious and emotional, and p***ed off at times. She has said in the past months that she feels like a Dancing On Ice widow.’

However, the source confirmed that Brendan had been ‘checking in’ on his family while they were abroad, adding: ‘She doesn’t believe he would cheat on her – she would not be with him if she did. But she has found the past few months challenging.’
