Pamela Anderson is the first celebrity to be voted off Dancing on Ice after suffering a wardrobe malfunction in the "safety skate".
The actress lost out to TV presenter Keith Chegwin after having problems with her costume.
"I just stumbled, my dress...my boobs fell out, it happens," she later said.
Despite coming third after the judges' scores, once the public vote was taken into account she and partner Matt Evers found themselves in the bottom two.
A unanimous vote from the judges sent home the former Baywatch star and Playboy model.
Pamela Anderson, 45, went on Twitter after the show to apologise to her fans.
"Thanks for everything. Sorry I was voted off... My dress fell apart in save-me skate. Devestated [sic].
"Sorry international calls were not excepted [sic]. I couldn't vote with my own phone."
When she came off the ice, presenter Phillip Schofield joked: "If it had happened a little earlier this evening you'd have been guaranteed a place in the final."
Coronation Street actress Samia Ghadie, Matt Lapinskas who played Anthony Moon in EastEnders, Olympic medal-winning gymnast Beth Tweddle and former X Factor winner Shayne Ward all made it through to the next round of the competition.
Keith Chegwin was back in the new series a year after he had to quit the show when he fell and broke his shoulder and ribs.
The other six contestants including Lauren Goodger from The Only Way Is Essex, Olympic boxing gold medallist Luke Campbell and television presenter Anthea Turner, will all perform for the first time next weekend.
