Dancing On Ice’s Sonny Jay backed by Lewis Capaldi to win the show but radio star says Colin Jackson is the one to watch

DANCING On Ice contestant Sonny Jay is being backed by Lewis Capaldi to win the show.

The 27-year-old DJ has been bombarded with good luck messages from his famous friends and Capital radio colleagues ahead of his first performance on Sunday night.

Superstar singer Lewis said on the Breakfast Show today: “Hello Sonny, it’s Lewis Capaldi here.

"I just wanted to say best of luck on the old Dancing on Ice.

"Skate your heart out, we’re all rooting for you, and I just wanted to leave you with this..."

He then started singing the lyrics to Love Sick by Sonny’s former band Loveable Rogues - ‘I’m love sick, I’m sick of this love game, and I'm tired of hearing, I'm the one to blame’.

"Do it for me and do it for the Lovable Rogues!", added Lewis.

In a series of video messages, Sonny's radio co-host Roman Kemp's parents Martin and Shirlie begged him not to fall over, but laughed: "That would make fantastic TV."

Capital's Aimee Vivian added: "If you do fall over, little tip - Blades of Glory.

"Style it out and have a laugh. You'll be amazing."

His skating partner Angela Egan appeared on the Capital Breakfast Show today to update fans on Sonny's progress.

"Do you know what, if you asked me about a month ago I would have a little reservation," admitted Angela.

"But honestly I’m ready for this, we’re ready for it, so I’m feeling pretty good!

But the pair are convinced Olympians Colin Jackson and Graham Bells are the one to watch in the competition.

Angela added: "Well generally I’ve not seen anyone skate yet so I can’t make that massive judgement but we are skating against two Olympians this week so I think Colin Jackson and Graham are the ones to watch. 

Sonny admitted: "I really want to beat an Olympian to say that I’ve done it."
