Lemar voted off Dancing On Ice after yet another week in the skate-off

Singer Lemar was finally booted off Dancing On Ice after yet another week in the skate-off.

The singer, 39, got his marching orders following a skate-off with ex-Byker Grove star Donna Air.

Judges Jason Gardiner, Ashley Banjo and Jayne Torvill voted to save Air, with Christopher Dean saying that he would have made the same choice.

Asked about being a regular in the skate-off, Lemar joked: “It’s just like you’ve got to perform twice a week, so this is good.”

He said: “You can only do your best. We had a hard week this week, plagued with quite a bit of injuries.

“It’s fun to dance again with this one. She’s put in so much effort,” he said of partner Melody Le Moal.

Earlier in the skate-off, the end of their routine left Phillip Schofield to say: “You confused us a bit at the end there!” with co-host  Holly Willoughby adding: “Was that meant to happen?”

Next week there will be a double elimination with two couples leaving the competition for the first time.

Lemar Obika replaced Monty Panesar on the ITV show after the ex-cricketer was injured in training.
