Thanks to Adam over at DeadGoodUndies for passing along this story about Ray Quinn who was the winner of Dancing on Ice (UK version of Dancing with the Stars?). Wonder if the jockstrap he wore looked anything like the ones below!
Dancing On Ice champion Ray Quinn told Real Radio Yorkshire's Breakfast show's host Dixie this morning that second placed Donal Macintyre was a real diamante geezer in the final on Saturday.
He dropped a revelation into the conversation which left Dixie and his co-presenter Gayle Lofthouse totally agog:
Ray said; "Did you know that Donal actually wore a diamante jockstrap for good luck on the night?" Dixie repeated it back to him as he couldn't believe his ears... "You're telling me that Donal Macintyre was wearing a Diamante thong?" "Yep" confirmed Ray, "You can ask him about that when he comes to Sheffield" he added. The studio was in uproar with presenters, producers and even Ray howling with laughter.
Earlier in the interview Dixie had asked about his 'splits moment' in his performance and any padding he may have had for protection. He asked; "I've got to ask you, it was cold and you went down with quite a thud... any padding involved?" "No not really: Apart from my jockstrap!" It seems that Ray's jockstrap was standard issue so there nothing special down there.
Ray will be part of the forthcoming 'Dancing On Ice Tour' at The Sheffield Arena from the 2nd to 5th April where Gayle will be on the Judge's panel for one of the days.
Dixie later added;"Well, I was shocked when I watched him do the splits in the final and thought to myself 'Ooo, that's got to have consequences later on.' But to hear that Donal gave his performance whilst wearing a Diamante thong was just amazing." Gayle Added; "It's not for me to debate what a man and his sports underwear gets up to but, a Diamante Jockstrap... That's special. I hope he wears it at The Sheffield Arena events."
