The pair were unable to dance in episode five as Pillar fell and injured her ankle during rehearsals, but they still got to perform their unmasking - with most of the judges and many viewers already having predicted who they were.

Poultney, a former Dancing On Ice pro skater who met her husband, ex-England goalkeeper Seaman on the skating show, said: “We were gutted as we absolutely loved every minute! It was great fun but a tumble meant our Masked journey came to an end too soon, we had such a blast and we were sad that we had to hang up our masks without being able to share our final dance with you all!

"We have loved being part of this series and we wish the other competitors the best of luck as we continue to watch at home and try to guess who all the other celebrities are!”

Asked how it had been learning to dance, Poultney admitted: "My husband hates dancing."

Poultney and Seaman were the first ever duo to compete on the show.
