DANCING On Ice star Regan Gascoigne has left dad Paul and sister Bianca “really emotional” with his nerve-wracking performance.
The glamor model, 35, gushed about being the “proudest sister in the universe” after watching her 26-year-old sister topped the ITV show’s leaderboard numerous times.
But the ex-Love Island star has opened up about how “bittersweet” her excitement is after witnessing the horrific injuries suffered by former Dancing On Ice competitors.
Bianca told Closer Magazine: “Watching Regan on the ice has also been difficult because there have been some bad injuries on the show like cuts and breaks and sprains.
“I’m always on the edge of my seat because I know he could really hurt himself – it feels slightly bittersweet.
“My dad burst into tears watching Regan and so did I.
“We all get very emotional because he’s such a beautiful performer.”
On Sunday night’s episode, former Strictly Come Dancing pro Brendan Cole, Pussycat Dolls star Kimberly Wyatt and singer-dancer Regan all scored the maximum 40 points.
Regan discovered his love for the performing arts at just six and enrolled at the Hammond Ballet School at the age of eight.
He then studied musical theater at the Tring Park School for the Performing Arts.

Regan is partnered with Dancing On Ice pro Karina Manta.
Back in January, he made show history with the “best of all time” first skate – he bagged 33 out of a possible 40 points.
The two performed an elaborate routine on the ice to the Sam Smith ballad Too Good at Goodbyes.
Oti Mabuse and Ashley Banjo both scored eight points out of ten for the pair, while Christopher Dean and Jayne Torvill both scored eight and a half points.
Bianca’s concern came as fans were furious at the DOI finale being delayed.
ITV will broadcast the FA Cup quarter-final match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest on March 20 at 6pm, meaning the entertainment show’s final will take place on March 27 instead.
Broadcaster-confirmed finalists will have an extra week to recover and practice before the finals.
It’s not the only show affected by Saturday Night Takeaway, which has also reportedly been postponed because of Six Nations rugby.
One fan complained on Twitter: “What a boring weekend this is going to be.”
Another moaned: “This really sucks.”
On Sunday night, Paralympic competitor Stef Reid became the latest celebrity to be eliminated in a week in which three contestants received perfect scores from the judges.
