It’s the second preliminary heat of Dancing On Ice 2011, and with eight more celebrities showing off their skating skills, but just six places available in the final line-up, the stakes are high….
Former Neighbours star Craig McLachlan kicked things off with a devilish routine – but could barely scrape double figures on the scoreboard
Hollyoaks star Jennifer Metcalfe was next, performing a graceful routine to Madonna’s Crazy For You with her partner Sylvain Longchambon
Chris Moyles’ sidekick ‘Comedy’ Dave Vitty lived up to his nickname with an entertaining performance to the 80s hit The Safety Dance
Spanish model Elen Rivas took to the air in her elegant routine – but would it be enough to keep her out of the skate-off?
Cricketer Dominic Cork picked up some praise from the judges, who said that he had the potential to improve
Chloe Madeley was next on to the ice, and impressed the judges, finishing second on the scoreboard with 16 out of 30
Chloe – the daughter of Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan – received some high praise from the judges, although Jason wasn’t so sure, grudgingly calling her “not dreadful”
Former EastEnder Sam Attwater made a great impression on the ice, even trying a spot of breakdancing at one point
The couple were thrilled to receive the highest score of the night, and so far this series – 21 out of 30, including an 8 from Emma Bunton!
Finally, Denise Welch took to the rink with skating partner Matt Evers. The judges weren’t impressed but what would the public think?
The Loose Women presenter scored just 10 points from the judges out of 30, despite a routine that was light-hearted and jokey
In the results show, Chloe was thrilled to learn she had made it through to the final 12 following her good performance
….and we think Denise was also quite pleased to learn she had made it through!
Sadly though, two had to go, and after Jennifer won the second triple skate-off of fht series it was time to say goodbye to Craig….
…and it was also time to bid farewell to Elen. All of which leaves us with our final 12, going head to head for the first time next weekend
