Aggie latest celeb to leave 'Dancing On Ice'

Aggie MacKenzie is the latest celebrity to skate off the 'Dancing on Ice' show.

Aggie MacKenzie is the latest celebrity to skate off the 'Dancing on Ice' show.

The 'How Clean is Your House?' star found herself in the bottom two with javelin thrower Steve Backley, who was saved by the judges.

She said her favourite aspect of the ITV1 show was skating with dance partner Sergey Malyshev.

The competitors skated to Broadway musical hits last night including songs from 'Chicago', Grease and Joseph and His Technicolor Dream Coat.

Aggie, who skated her way through 'I Feel Pretty' from West Side Story, scored just 10 points from judges.

Judge Jason Gardiner told her: “In your defence, ’I feel pity’ for your song choice. I think the viewers who are keeping you in are sadistic.”

After being given the boot, Aggie declared: “I’m glad its all over I don’t think my nerves could have taken much more.”

Last night’s show saw Hollyoaks heart-throb and hot favourite Chris Fountain bag 25 points for his routine to 'Time Warp' from the 'Rocky Horror Picture Show'.

Judge Robin Cousins said: “It was fantastic. I loved it, it was brilliant. It was just good quality skating.”

Actress and singer Suzanne Shaw cracked a rib just hours before the show and, despite performing strapped up, scored 22 points for her routine to 'Fame'.

Cousins told her: “You are a great performer. You were a little tense and made a few mistakes with your toepicks, but you attacked the performance. You gave more than 100%.”

Last night’s show saw Jayne Torvill skate without her regular partner Christopher Dean who has had keyhole knee surgery to repair some cartilage.

She opened the show with a routine to 'One Singular Sensation' from 'A Chorus Line' with her own chorus line of professional skaters.

Dean said he hopes to be skating on next week’s show.

Phillip Schofield opened the show with a cheeky gag aimed at his co-host Holly Willoughby whose low-cut dress prompted complaints last week.

“Well, millions of people were watching the show last week expecting one to fall out, but luckily they both stayed in,” he said.

Willoughby wearing a black dress with another plunging neckline, replied: “Enough of that – let’s move on.”
