Queen of clean Aggie Mackenzie has become the latest casualty of the current series of href=”/primetime/dancing_on_ice_three”>Dancing on Ice, after losing the judges vote.

The 52-year-old – best known as co-presenter of How Clean Is Your House? found herself in the bottom two for the first time this week, along with javelin champion Steve Backley.

And after seeing off the competition from Samantha Mumba on last week’s show, Steve won the judges’ vote for the second week running – with the panel voting unanimously in his favour.

“I’m glad it’s all over,” Aggie said afterwards. “I don’t think my nerves could have taken much more.”

And she had a few words for judge Jason Gardiner, who was less than kind about her four performances, and subjected her to some of the harshest criticism of the series.

“I think Jason has a certain vulnerability about him,” she said, “so I can’t be too hard on him.”

Earlier in the show – which had a Broadway musicals theme – Aggie came a cropper when she took a tumble on the ice midway through her routine to the classic tune I Feel Pretty.

Unsurprisingly, she came in for criticism from the judges, with Jason saying he “felt pity” for her.

Backley also failed to impress Jason, who described his performance as “disappointing” – and he made his feelings known during the final vote. “It’s a shame we can’t get rid of both of you,” he said before choosing Aggie.

However, there was better news for Suzanne Shaw, Chris Fountain, Gareth Gates and newcomer Zaraah Abrahams, whose routines were warmly received.

Eight couples now remain to compete in next week’s show.
