Dancing On Ices Michelle Heaton fights tears as she becomes latest star to be axed

Michelle Heaton is the second contestant to be eliminated from Dancing On Ice alongside her partner Łukasz Różycki during Sunday night’s show.

In the end, it was between Patsy Palmer and Matt Evers and Michelle Heaton and Łukasz, but unfortunately, Michelle and her partner didn't have enough votes to stay in the competition.

Michelle appeared to fight back tears as she told the hosts she was "gutted" before sharing: "I've loved every second of it, and I've loved everything that I just did there and this man [Łukasz] has just been amazing and I couldn't have done anything without him."

She then turned to her dance partner and said: "I'm just so sorry that it was cut short."

Last week saw Love Island’s Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and former football pro John Fashanu face off against one another in the skate-off following feedback from judges Ashley Banjo, Christopher Dean, Jayne Torvill and Oti Mabuse.

The judges subsequently chose to save Ekin-Su and her partner Brendyn Hatfield over John and Alexandra Schauman.

Before the decision, John, 60, admitted to feeling insecure about his performance and predicted his elimination.

The judges ultimately chose to save Ekin-Su, 28, on the basis that she included "more technical skating in her routine.”

"I think you are the most improved skater since bootcamp. You were a liability in bootcamp, but you made it, you were steady out there,” Olympic skater Christopher told John.

Speaking to host Holly Willoughby, John said: “It’s been great, whatever happens, it’s been wonderful… like the FA Cup final again!”

Holly's co-host Phillip Schofield then asked him if he would "carry on skating," to which John replied: "Oh yes! I shall carry on skating and who knows, I might even start teaching people."

Following the elimination, X Factor’s Jake Quickenden commented on John’s elimination in his exclusive column for OK!

Jake, 34, competed on the skating show back in 2018 when he rose victorious with Joey Essex’s partner Vanessa Bauer against the likes of Kem Cetinay, Brooke Vincent and Alex Beresford.

He wrote: "Honestly, I called it, I kind of knew that he'd go. Ekin-Su skated quite well in the skate-off. You know what, hats off to John, he's 60 and he gave it a good go. When I was watching it, I was thinking he's so tall.

He continued: “It's so hard because Alexandra Schauman is only little and he's so tall, it just makes everything look quite slumped over because he's having to bend over, which will make it so much harder for him.

“So when I watched I thought: 'Yeah, I can see him definitely being in the bottom two for the skate-off' and then after the skate-off, I was like: 'Yeah, he's going to go, bless him.' Nobody wants to be first out but somebody always has to be first out.

“I'm glad Ekin-Su was saved because I think she'll bring quite a lot of entertainment throughout the season.”
