Chloe's fall helped her into final, says dad Richard Madeley

Chloe Madeley

Chloe Madeley's dad - chat show and telly legend Richard Madeley - has claimed that her fall in Sunday's semi-final show helped her into this weekend's final. Chloe fell along with skating partner Michael Zenezini during their performance last weekend as the duo danced to Katy Perry's 'Firework' track.

Writing in his blog, Madeley said: "I will never hear Katy Perry's Firework again without seeing in my mind's eye Chloe and Michael taking their first tumble yet on the ice.

"But it all adds to the drama. In fact, I told Chloe after her and Michael's brilliant skate-off performance punched them into this Sunday's final."

He continued: "It I was scripting DOI as a drama I'd have written in that accident. Added hugely to the watchability of the show and was a reminder of how unbelievably difficult what they are all doing out there is.

"Judy and I might just burst with pride yet... My little girl in the final!"

Dancing On Ice concludes with the final this Sunday as Chloe, Sam Attwater and Laura Hamilton battle it out to be crowned 2011 champion.
