Dancing on Ice eliminates sixth celebrity ITV

Dancing on Ice has revealed the five couples gliding into next week's semi-final after a prop-filled night on the rink.

Before the celebrities and their partners took to the ice judge Jayne Torvill announced she would be taking a break from skating for a while.

Sporting a sequin-covered sling that matched her dress, the professional skater announced she'd had an accident on the ice and will need surgery.

"Talking of things going wrong on the ice, I ruptured my bicep tendon so I need to have surgery," she said. "I'll be fine and I'll be back on the ice soon."

This week was all about props; from beds to feather boas and boats; and high scores.

Here are this week's scores:

Mollie Gallagher and Sylvain Longchambon: 33.0

Carley Stenson and Mark Hanretty: 34.5

The Vivienne and Colin Grafton: 35.5

Nile Wilson and Olivia Smart: 37.5

Joey Essex and Vanessa Bauer: 36.5

Siva Kaneswaran and Klabera Komini: 34.0

It was then announced that Carley and Mark and Siva and Klabera were the two couples who had got the lowest votes and had to take part in the dreaded skate-off.

After performing a new routine each, it was announced that Carley and Mark would be leaving.

Carley said her shoulder "popped out" and back in (ouch!) during her skate-off performance and she still carried on, and she was emotional in her exit interview.

She said: "this week just got harder and harder" and that she was "really going to miss this man [partner Mark].

It was also announced that for next week's semi-final, the celebrities will be performing twice – once with their partners as usual and then they will have to do a solo routine.

Not only that, but there will be a double elimination, so it will be a tough week.

Dancing on Ice airs on ITV1 and ITVX.
