Singer Jessica Taylor has come out on top in the second week of Dancing On Ice, as the ladies took to the ice for the first time.
The former Liberty X star scored an impressive 21 out of 30 from the judges for her routine to the Madonna classic La Isla Bonita – and attracted some equally good comments from the panel.
“I was blown away,” Nicky Slater told her and skating partner Pavel Aubrecht. “I think you make a very sexy pair, you look great together. I’m predicting that you could be in the final for sure.”
Ex-Blue Peter presenter Zoe Salmon was also praised for her routine to Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody, finishing second on the leader board with 18.5 points, and even impressing hard to please judge Jason Gardiner.
“You were so cute to watch – and fun to watch too,” he said.
However it wasn’t such good news for all the skaters. Former EastEnders star Gemma Bissix scored only 13 points and was criticised for displaying nerves during her routine. “You need to become much more solid,” Ruthie Henshall told her.
And Colleen Nolan fared even worse, finishing bottom of the scoreboard with just 12.5 points from the judges. However she received some words of encouragement.
“I wasn’t sure what I was going to see tonight,” Robin Cousins said, “If you were very nervous you didn’t show it. Everything is very nice but it needs to get better.”
