Ian ‘H’ Watkins, who will take part in the first-ever same-sex Dancing on Ice routine, shut down a fan who asked why he couldn’t just dance with a woman.

At the end of their show, Burgerz, Travis Alabanza asks an audience member to throw a burger at them. The person, who volunteered to go on stage to hold Travis’s hands but was not expecting this, balls their own hands into fists and clutches them to their chest. Shaking their head, “no”, they return to their seat, sobbing. As they clamber down from the stage, Travis briefly places a hand on their shoulder in a silent gesture of empathy. Holding the burger, Travis turns their back on the audience and...
