After skating around a huge Christmas tree with his partner Brianne Delcourt, the pair almost took a tumble before Alex revealed his gameplan to Phillip Schofield.

Phillip Schofield said: "Can you rely on Piers Morgan for his support, or will he be voting for someone else?"

Alex cheekily said: "The thing with Piers is, if he supports you - no-one supports you.

"So what I really need is for him to continue hating me, then everyone will support me. That’s my plan of action!"
