Despite being the odds-on favourite to win, Ray insisted: "We put our all into the performances and that was all we could do.
"The result was out of our hands. Whatever happened, we had a good time.. even then watching it back it sent goosebumps all over me. It was a proper shock."
And it turns out that Ray was right not to be confident as today's Dancing On Ice voting stats reveal that it was only in the final that he actually topped the public vote.
It was almost Hayley Tamaddon who walked away with the DOI all stars title although it doesn't sound like Ray would've minded if he hadn't win.
"It was an incredible night. The result was amazing but the show... everyone pulled it out the bag, what a way to end the show, it went out with a bang. Everyone's performance was amazing," he said today.
Ray added: "I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone at home who picked up the phone and my wife and family, it's been such a rollercoaster."
