The Bolero

Matthew Wolfenden

Robin Cousins “You laid everything out in front of us, it was a privilege to watch. It was the most difficult bolero we have seen from day one of Dancing on Ice.”

Katarina Witt “It kept growing from one trick to another, it was memorising, it was gentle, sexy and intense. I can not imagine what kind of skater you would of become if you had started as a young boy.”

Louie Spence “It was superb, you invited us into that performance and you made it your own. By putting in your own choreography as well it was an extension of you.”

Jorgie Porter

Katarina Witt “You guys went through a really tough twelve weeks. You must be tired but don’t be disappointed, you should be very proud. You made Chris and Jayne and me as a skater proud. Your elegance, your posture, your passion, you gave us a great performance.”

Louie Spence “You do these slow dramatical routines so well, you have outdone yourself.”

Robin Cousins “What was so special about this is you created this yourself and it was Jorgie and Matt doing what you do beautifully.”

On winning, a thrilled Matthew said:

“I can’t believe it I’m shaking. The first time I stood on the ice I thought I made the worse mistake of my career.”
