Conley's ice dream hits the skids

Rosemary Conley is the latest celebrity skater to leave the Dancing On Ice rink.

The fitness guru was eliminated after admitting that the other competitors were "really raising their game".

Skier Chemmy Alcott was saved by all three judges following the skate-off.

Hollyoaks star Jorgie Porter, with her partner Matt Evers, got the highest score from the judges for the second consecutive week. They were awarded 26 for their dance to Fallin' by Alicia Keys.

Judge Louie Spence, who gave the pair the first nine of the series, said it "brought a tear to my eye". He added: "You don't need experts when you see such beauty like that. Anybody can see that that is an absolutely stunning and beautiful performance.

"Every part of it - the emotion, the technique, the love - honestly it was absolutely beautiful."

Next best judges' score was 23, to singer Chico and his partner Jodeyne Higgins for their routine to Nat King Cole's L.O.V.E.

Chico was so pleased with their performance he said it felt like winning the World Cup.

"When I picked up Jodeyne on my head I felt like Bobby Moore and she was my cup in 1966," he said.

Next week's show will feature the contestants dancing solo and being assessed for their technical skills. Two of the celebrities will leave the show.
