Hearing the uptempo ballad, former Strictly winner Jay said on Twitter: "Thank you so much @dancingonice for your beautiful performance of Gold Forever.
"It means more than you could possibly know"
His post wracked up thousands of likes, as one person replied: "This song truly does have the most special meaning now, so incredibly proud of you 5."

Gold Forever was released in 2011, with Tom and Max George duetting on an emotional chorus, singing the lyrics: "Say my name like it's the last time. Live today like it's your last night. We want to cry but we know it's alright."
Tom was hailed a hero by his The Wanted bandmates after he reunited with them on stage after being diagnosed with a brain tumour two years ago.
The 33-year-old singer had been seen using a wheelchair after treatment for his inoperable tumour left him too weak to stand.
He missed the start of the group's Most Wanted greatest hits tour to undergo pioneering treatment on his brain cancer in Spain.

The dad-of-two has undergone numerous rounds of chemotherpay and radiotherapy since being diagnosed with an inoperable tumour in 2020.
