‘Pop Idol’ season one runner-up Gareth Gates checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@garethgates) on Monday (January 21) after skating on ‘Dancing On Ice’ over the weekend. Gates writes:
Well what did you think? Gareth Skates did OK didn’t he? I loved it last night. I had such a good time, and when I re-watched the performance afterwards, I realized that I really was enjoying it. I practiced so hard last week and I think it really showed, especially in the judges’ scores. A massive thank you to everybody who voted for me – it really means a lot to stay in another week, and you’ll be glad to know that I was already back in the rink today learning my next routine. My partner Maria has been amazing as well and Jayne and Chris, they really all are fantastic teachers. I LOVE SKATING!
Anyway I’ve got to go – sorry it’s a short one but I’ve gotta get practicing : )
Gareth Gates ‘Skates Are For Skating. Not For…’ No.1
January 18, 2008 – Gareth is out with a comedy bit ‘Skates Are For Skating. Not For…’, which ends encouraging fans to vote for the singer in the British reality competition ‘Dancing On Ice’. The first one, demonstrating skates aren’t for slicing produce, has since been removed from YouTube.

Firstly let me start with a huuuuuuge thank you to everybody that voted for me on last night’s Dancing On Ice. I was so nervous but I actually thought it went really well. What did you think of the outfit?
Obviously I am pleased that the first one is out of the way, and now I can’t wait to get stuck in – I love it! I’ve started training for the next routine already and it’s going to be fantastic.
Thanks again for getting behind me – the messages and good luck cards have been brilliant and really make me want to get out there again.
Bring on Sunday!
