Two celebs leave Dancing on Ice in DOUBLE elimination during Musicals Week
12 Feb 2024, 08:16
In another twist to the format, two stars exited Dancing on Ice in the latest episode.
As well as the usual skate-off and subsequent elimination, Sunday’s episode (11th February) also saw the lowest placing pair on the leader board being booted off the show. This shift to the usual process comes after the skate-off was ditched completely for one week earlier - in favour of a straightforward elimination - in the series.
The latest instalment also featured the Judges' Challenge, in which all of the celebrities were required to do either a solo spin or a freestyle jump.
If choosing the former, they had to achieve a minimum of two revolutions, while if they did the latter, both skates needed to leave the ice. Olympic figure skating champ Johnny Weir was on hand as a special guest judge.
Emmerdale star Roxy Shahidi and her professional partner Sylvain Longchambon ended up with the lowest overall score for their Moulin Rouge routine, meaning they were knocked out straight away.
Meanwhile, the next two lowest scoring pairs - Taskmaster’s Lou Sanders and her pro partner Brendyn Hatfield, and EastEnders' Ricky Norwood and skater Annette Dytrt - ended up skating off for their future participation in the show.
All four of the judges, Johnny, Oti Mabuse, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean opted to save Ricky, meaning comedian Lou was eliminated.
She told hosts Stephen Mulhern and Holly Willoughby: “I've had the time of my life,” and joked that her pro partner’s “insurance has gone up” since working with her.
At the other end of the leaderboard, Love Island star Amber Davies and Simon Proulx-Sénécal picked up the highest overall score of the series this far, with an impressive 35.5 for their routine from Matilda.
Eddie the Eagle and Vicky Ogden took got their best score so far, and Corrie’s Ryan Thomas took a couple of tumbles during his routine.
