Dancing on Ice finalist Matt Lapinskas could skate off with the crown on Sunday night in a former contestant's trousers.
The former EastEnders actor said the celebrities had been given hand-me-downs to wear on the show.
He said he was surprised to receive a pair of slacks previously worn by TV presenter Jeff Brazier, who competed in the ITV talent show in 2011.
Lapinskas said: "I had one costume that said Jeff in it. Jeff Brazier. Literally at the bottom of the crotch - I popped it open and it said Jeff."
