The 11 remaining celebrities in Dancing On Ice 2010 have performed 70s-themed routines in a bid to stay in the competition.
And this week was another good one for Emmerdale’s Hayley Tamaddon, who rounded off the show, and picked up the highest score of the series so far with 23 from the judges.
“Saved the best till last,” Jason Gardiner said, “that was great. You have more energy than EDF.”
It was also a good week for Boyzone star Mikey Graham, who finished in second place with 20.5 – his best score of the series to date.
His routine, to the 70s hit Cecilia, was described as “cheeky” by Jason Gardiner while Karen Barber also praised the singer. “This is one of my favourite routines of the week and you didn’t let me down.”
There was also praise for Danniella Westbrook, who was just behind Graham with a score of 19.5.
“You were great to watch tonight,” Robin Cousins told her, while Emma Bunton said, “You were so cute, you’re a great performer and I really enjoy it every week.”
And Gary Lucy – who narrowly escaped elimination two weeks ago – also ended up with his highest score of the series so far, getting 19 points.
“I’m trying to convince you that you are as good as you are,” said Barber, “and you will get better.”
Others who came in for praise included Tana Ramsay, who won some kind remarks from the judges despite once again ending up with a low score.
“It was a big step up from last week,” said Slater after she had performed her routine to the Abba classic Waterloo. Bunton, meanwhile, said that Ramsay looked “gorgeous”.
However it was a disappointing night for two of the other front runners, Danny Young and Kieron Richardson.
Gardiner told Young, “there were moments when you were great coupled with moments when you were not so great.” And he said of Richardson, “it wasn’t enjoyable to watch”.
The notoriously catty judge also criticised Sharron Davies, although the other judges were kinder. “There’s a real quality that’s starting to come out now,” Karen Barber said.
And it was another rough week for Emily Atack and Dr Hilary Jones, who found themselves at the bottom of the scoreboard once again.
“This is the first time I’ve seen you go out and attack it,” Cousins said of Atack’s routine with partner Fred Palascak, “but you probably attacked it a bit too much.”
And while Barber praised Jones for having “charisma on the ice,” Gardiner wasn’t so sure. “You are improving very slightly,” he said, “but it’s not enough.
The results will be announced later on Sunday evening.
