Meanwhile Kai has impressed Dan Whiston, the show’s Associate Creative Director, so much that he’s been called the series underdog.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Dan said: “For me, the underdog is probably Kye. He’s so good. He’s skating with a new pro called Tippy. I’ve worked with Tippy before and she’s fantastic.
“The two of them together just get it, they’re kind of under the radar, they’re the couple people will be like ‘oh my god, he’s amazing’.

“What’s great about him, as with Stef [Reid], they’re athletes, they’re so driven.”
Former Strictly star Brendan Cole is currently favourite with bookies to win the series, but Dan believes there are at least six pairings that could go all the way.
