“Your fans campaigned to get you on the show, it was trending on Twitter, it was a huge deal,” DeGeneres said.

Virtue noted that social media is new for them so they are very appreciative of the response they’ve received.

“In Vancouver and in Sochi, at both those Olympics, neither of us were active on social media and we’re fiercely private. This has been really special to share our Olympic experience with so many people and this is such a thrill and an honour. So thank you to everyone for getting us here!”

DeGeneres asked if it’s sunk in for them that they are now the most decorated figure skaters in history.

“Obviously, a lot of things have to go right to have three different cycles, especially as a team,” said Moir. “It’s been pretty special.”

DeGeneres remarked on the obvious chemistry between the two, asking them if they’re a couple which Virtue denied before adding that they take it as a compliment that people are so invested in the emotion they portray on the ice.

“If we were, we would announce it here,” Virtue joked.
