Dancing On Ice airs shock elimination as latest celebrity is axed from ITV show


DANCING On Ice fans have been left stunned as the latest celebrity was axed from the skating series.

Fans were left moved by tonight’s performances as the remaining couples dedicated their performances to special people in their lives.

Amber Davies and Ricky Norwood faced the dreaded skate-off

Amber Davies was left in tears as she honoured her mum Susan in her Spice Girls routine.

Meanwhile, former Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas broke down as he remembered his late father.

Following all of the performances, Holly and Stephen revealed Amber, 27, and EastEnders star Ricky Norwood received the fewest votes and would face the dreaded skate-off.

In nail-biting scenes the presenters announced Ricky had lost his place in the competition following the judges’ decision.

Reacting to the result, fans flooded social media with their reactions.

One said: “Sad to see Ricky go! We love to see back in eastenders after all we never seen a body (and yes I am delusional).”

A second wrote: “Absolute disgrace that they put someone through who is literally stuck to their partner & spends a lot of time being lifted over the one who actually skated on his own? Really hoping this is the last series now as it’s losing its last shred of integrity.”

“Oh FFS Ricky may not be the best but at least he skates on he’s own, does lifts etc and yet he gets voted out,” said a third.

While a fourth commented: “Love Ricky, going to miss him on #DancingOnIce let’s hope we see him back on our screens soon.”

During the show fans were left delighted as skating legend Matt Evers made a surprise return.

The professional, 47, announced last year he had quit the ITV show after 15 years.
