Dancing On Ice guest judge Johnny Weir on the standout performers so far

American figure skater Johnny Weir has singled out Amber Davies, Greg Rutherford and Miles Nazaire as the standout performers on ITV’s Dancing On Ice.

Weir, who is appearing as a guest judge on the show in the place of Diversity troupe leader Ashley Banjo, said former Love Island star Davies is “killing it on the ice”.

He said: “Amber is definitely killing it on the ice and I think it’s a long time since a woman has won.

Welsh reality TV star-turned-actress Davies and Made In Chelsea star Nazaire both clinched 35.5 points, the highest of the series so far, on Sunday.

Two-time Olympian Weir called former Buckinghamshire track and field athlete Rutherford “fearless” and said Nazaire is treating the competition “very seriously”.

He said: “To sit next to Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean is a huge honour. I was born in 1984, the year they won the Olympics, and even though I was a baby their names are known all over America and they’re legendary.

“For someone like me to sit at the same table as such legendary skaters is always a big honour. Pure excitement!
