It was a bumper week for Dancing on Ice as not one, but TWO celebs were voted off in a shock elimination.

Coronation Street actress Jane Danson and ex-England cricketer Ryan Sidebottom hung up their skates after facing the dance off against Melody Thornton and her partner.

The former Pussycat Doll star Melody was saved by three votes.

Jane from Corrie said that being a part of the show was "a dream come true".

And Ryan called Brandee the "best partner he could have asked for".

There are now just five celebrities left in the competition.

Gemma Collins was the fifth person to voted off Dancing on Ice.

The reality TV star exited the show after finding herself in the skate-off for the first time.

She went head to head with former England international cricketer Ryan Sidebottom. Despite being injured, all of the judges chose to save him.

Gemma said it was her time to go and she wished all the other celebs good luck.

When Holly asked her if she'll carry on skating she said: "Probably not!"

Loose Women presenter Saira Khan was the fourth person to be voted off Dancing On Ice.

Saira Khan lost out to cricketer Ryan Sidebottom.

The vote was unanimous and Saira thanked her dance partner.

Gemma Collins made it through despite a terrible score and leaving some viewers annoyed.

Didi Conn and her professional partner Lukasz Rozycki were the third couple to be eliminated from Dancing on Ice.

After facing Saara Aalto and Mark Hanretty in the skate-off, all four judges chose to save their opponents.

But another elimination wasn't the only moment of drama from the night.

At the end of performing what the judge's said was her best performance of the series so far, reality TV star Gemma Collins took a dramatic tumble.

She got up and finished her performance and host Holly Willoughby checked that she was OK.

Gemma's skating partner praised her response to the fall, saying: "It wasn't the end, and you got up and you finished it!"

Holly's co-host Phillip Schofield added: "It doesn't matter! Before that it was absolutely beautiful. Even with that, it's your highest score!"

Not only that, but... we had our first head-banger of the series!

This is an extremely dangerous move (definitely do not attempt it at home), which Melody and Alexander pulled off with unbelievable skill.

The pair landed 32.5, which was the highest score of the night and the series so far.

Richard Blackwood

Richard Blackwood was the second celebrity to leave the competition.

It came down to former Eastenders actor Richard Blackwood and TV presenter Saira Khan in the skate-off, with the judges choosing Saira to skate another day.

The judges were split 2-3, with head judge Jayne Torvill deciding to pick Saira because of her passion for skating.

Blackwood said: "I'm disappointed, but it's all good."

His exit wasn't the only drama of the night as reality TV star Gemma Collins had an argument with judge Jason Gardiner after her performance. She told him to "stop selling stories" about her, while he replied by calling her a "brat".

Mark Little

Mark Little was the first celebrity to leave the show.

The former Neighbours star left the rink after a skate-off against ex-England international cricketer Ryan Sidebottom.

He received the fewest votes in the show so had to face the lowest scoring pair from this week. All of the judges chose to save Ryan.

The Australian actor said that he'd done his best and that ice-skating will now be his new hobby!
