Dancing on Ice’s Didi Conn cries after wearing ACTUAL Grease jacket on the ice

Grease star Didi Conn became incredibly emotional as she came off the ice after her Dancing on Ice debut.

The 67-year-old performed to We Go Together from the hit musical movie, which saw her and co-stars John Travolta and Olivia Newton John skyrocket into the celebrity world.

But after her performance went off with a bang, the "sweet" actress could not contain her tears as she cried with her partner Lukasz Rozycki.

Before the performance, host Holly Willoughby had squealed with delight about Didi’s performance, saying: "We have actual Frenchie from Grease with actual Frenchie’s Pink Lady jacket!”

The emotional Didi then showed off the jacket, saying: "It’s got an original mustard stain on it from the movie! From the drive in, you know the hot dog?"

Phillip Schofield joked it had a "grease stain," before Didi became emotional again as she sang the praises of her partner.

Sadly, the judges weren’t as impressed, especially Jason Gardiner, who cattily said: "You’ve dined out on this song for 40 years!"

Viewers watching at home were thrilled to see Didi and weren’t impressed by Jason’s rude comments.

Comedian Keith Lemon tweeted: "Loving Didi Conn on #DancingOnIce loved her! Put a smile all over my face 10! 10! 10! @hollywills you look beautiful."

One viewer wrote: "Why did Jason feel the need to make a personal insult to Didi about dining out on a song for 40yrs. No respect for him after that. Awful. #DancingOnIce."

Another wrote: "That ‘dined out’ comment was uncalled for. Yes, Grease is the most well-known thing Didi has been in but to discount all of the other work she’s done and to suggest that she’s ‘dined out’ on it is so so disrespectful of Jason. He’s supposed to be critical not mean #DancingOnIce."

Didi had clearly won over many viewers, with many calling her adorable: "I’m in love with Didi Conn. She’s adorable and that literally made my whole night! #DancingOnIce."

Dancing on Ice continues on Sunday at 6pm on ITV.
