Brian McFadden paid tribute to Gemma Collins at her Dancing on Ice leaving party with a toast to her.

Lifting his glass, the former Westlife singer could be heard telling The GC and the crowd: “Let's be honest, if it hadn't been for you, nobody would have watched this f**king show."

In another clip, shared on Instagram Stories by Gemma’s boyfriend James ‘Arg’ Argent, Brian said: "And on a final note, you will notice that none of the people from ITV are here because they're all trying to figure out how the f**k they're going to get ratings next week."

Arg also praised Gemma’s efforts in a sweet video of them cuddling, saying: "You stole the show this year, you know that don't you?

"She done everything she needed to do, she came, saw and conquered. She was an absolute star. She made Dancing on Ice 2019."

Gemma then says: "I want to go on holiday now though, Arg."

TOWIE star Gemma was voted out of the show after taking part in the skate-off with Ryan Sidebottom.

After dancing to Destiny Child’s 'Survivor', judge Jason Gardiner told her: "It gives me great pleasure to say that I will be saving Ryan and Brandee."

After being voted out, she said: "I did say tonight’s my night [to go home] …and I just want to bow out gracefully.

"It’s time to let them all go on and I wish them all the best of luck."

She also told her skating partner Matt Evers: "I’m taking you to Gucci to get you a bag, because you’ve been amazing."

Dancing on Ice continues next Sunday (February 17) on ITV.
