And the second celeb to slide off Dancing on Ice 2018 is… Stephanie Waring. On Sunday night the Hollyoaks actress and her professional partner Slyvain Longchambon were given the boot (and blade) off the ITV ice rink competition after losing the skate-off with Lemar (the singer’s second dance for survival this series).
Although judges Jason Gardiner and Ashley Banjo opted to save Waring, Jayne Torville and Christopher Dean both voted to save Lemar and partner Melody Le Moal. Well, we think Dean wanted to save them – it was hard to work out…
I can't believe Lemar stayed, what a ridiculous decision. There's a reason he has been in the bottom two for two weeks running. And he tripped! What's the point of a skate off if you can fall and still go through @dancingonice? Bloody Torvil and Dean!! ? #DancingOnIce#DOI
But these messages were certainly in the minority…
What the hell Lemar and Melody made a mistake at the end and Chris and Jayne saved him. Don't they have to vote on what they see and he made a mistake. It is ridiculous, Steph and Sylvian should have stayed #DancingOnIce
Waring herself also seems a miffed about her exit. “I was very confused as to [the fact that] there was a trip and yet I’m the one to go home,” she said on Lorraine the next morning. “It is a lot of hard work just down the toilet, really.”
We’ll have to wait until next week to see if Lemar is given yet more Time to Grow his skating skills (sorry).
