Dancing On Ice winner still close to Bleeding Love singer

TAGS:

Ray Quinn hopes to work with former X Factor rival Leona Lewis.

The Dancing On Ice winner lost out to the Bleeding Love singer, 23, in the 2006 final of the ITV show.

Id love to do a song with Leona, it would be fantastic! Ray tells Now Online.

I try to keep in touch with Leona and she does the same, too.
 
Ray, 20, admits that learning to skate was a lot tougher than competing in the singing contest.

The X Factor was a great stepping-stone for my career and made me what I am today, he says.

But Dancing On Ice was a complete challenge; to dance on ice is hard work. But both experiences were magical.

Ray is promoting the new SEA LIFE Sharkbait Reef attraction at Alton Towers.
