Ballymahon's Maura Higgins and her professional skating partner Alexander Demetriou stole the show last night with a Love Island-themed performance on ITV's Dancing On Ice.

Maura, who is determined to beat rival, Joe Swash, was thrilled when she learned she had beaten the former Eastenders actor by half a point.
