DANCING ON ICE has had plenty of drama and it is only week four.
The hit celebrity skating show had its third round of eliminations on February 7 – but it was an early exit for one celebrity…
Who left Dancing On Ice tonight?
Matt Richardson was sent home in the fourth week of this year’s Dancing On Ice – but many fans felt it was an unfair decision.
The comedian had been drafted into this week’s show as a replacement for Rufus Hound who had to withdraw after a second positive Covid test.
Unsurprisingly, with very little training with partner Vicky Ogden, Matt found himself at the bottom of the leaderboard with the lowest score.
Following his elimination, Matt said: “I am quite relieved, this is the most horrifying terrifying and fear-inducing thing I have ever done.
“I don’t know if I could have done it for another week.”
In a nod to his quick exit, he added: “I came in last minute and I wasn’t expecting to do any of this kind of stuff so it’s been a lovely potentially in and out experience, which most of my life is really.”
Yet, the decision did not go down well with fans with one saying: “Bring Matt back this is the biased series ever – no point in bringing in replacements to disadvantage them – appalling.”
Who was in the skate off?
In the skate-off, Matt Richardson was up against former 110m hurdler Colin Jackson.
But all four judges voted in favour of the British athleteand was given his marching orders as all four judges chose the athlete.
Ashley Banjo and John Barrowman revealed they wanted Colin to stay due to the “content” of his routine.
Who has left Dancing On Ice 2021 so far?
The eliminations started in week two of the competition.
Denise Van Outen had to pull out due to injury, with Billie Faiers also withdrawing after getting a concussion in Friday’s training session.
After getting a bye last week, Rufus Hound had to leave the show following second positive coronavirus test that ruled him out of Sunday’s show.
So far three skaters have been booted off:
