It's all about the boys! Singer Chico is superb on skates as Matthew Wolfenden tops the scoreboard beating last week's Dancing On Ice favourite Jorgie Porter

It may have been all about the girls last week but tonight it was the men who were hot on the ice.

Former X Factor star Chico Slimani surprised the judges when he took to the ice and actor Matthew Wolfenden topped the scoreboard, beating last week's favourite Jorgie Porter.

Singer Chico looked set to have received the highest score of the night when he was given a total of 18.5, and was chuffed to have matched Porter's number.


Surprisingly good: Singer Chico Slimani matched Jorgie Porter's score of 18.5 as he took to the ice for the first time

Wearing a tight purple top and black trousers, the It's Chico Time star was confident and smiley as he took to the ice.

Having been told he would be taking part in the show only a few weeks ago, the dark-haired singer did extremely well.

He was brought in to replace Chesney Hawkes who was forced to pull out due to an injury.

Chico had been rehearsing as a reserve for six weeks previously, and it seems that's all the time he needed.


Perfectionist: Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden was determined to get the highest score of the night and it worked out well as he received 20.5

As he skated with his partner Jodeyne Higgins to Wild Thing, he certainly put a lot effort into the rhythm of his routine.

After learning of his excellent score, he shouted: 'I've just turned 40 and life begins at 40!'

Head judge Robin Cousins had nothing but good words to say about the singer: 'Every move was controlled in exactly the right place at the right time,' he said.

'You are a good skater, it's nice to see the partnership work instantly.'

Fellow judge Louie Spence also found it hard to contain his excitement, telling Chico: 'At the beginning there was a bit too much cheesy Chico and I'd prefer sexy, but I'm excited!' he shouted.

'Life begins at 40!': The dark-haired singer was more than happy with his score

But the Pineapple Dance Studios star was even more excited after he witnessed Wolfenden on the ice.

The Emmerdale actor was the last celebrity to put his skates on and appeared to be letting his obsession with perfection get in the way while rehearsing.

Partnered with Nina Ulanova, Wolfenden admitted that he felt pressure to get the best score of the night - and it seems his competitive streak served him well.


All in a fluster: Judge Louie Spence told both Chico and Matthew that he was excited following their performances

Wearing a black sleeveless leather top with matching trousers, he glided across the ice rink and following their performance, Ulanova said: 'I forgot that I was skating with a celebrity tonight, it felt like I was with a professional.'

'It was an explosive performance, it was almost perfect. It's just getting too hot,' shouted Spence.

And although female judge Katarina Witt agreed, she told Wolfenden to 'get rid of the leather!'

'You'll look even hotter in a white T-shirt and jeans,' she added.


Highest of the night: Matthew topped the scoreboard and looked very pleased with himself as his partner held onto him


Just like a professional: The actor glided across the ice in a black leather outfit

Cousins ended the feedback, saying: 'It was a fantastic end to the night and this is going to be a fantastic series and I cannot wait.'

The beginning of the show also got off to a good start with former soap star Jennifer Ellison scoring 15.5 with her partner Daniel Whiston.

Whiston is the first professional dancer to win the show twice and said that he is hoping for a hat trick.

The blonde had been concerned about the routine that mentors Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean had given her but looked confident and happy as she skated in her short red dress.

She and Whiston started their routine with some Charleston steps and glided across the ice to a lively jive and ended their performance with a scorpion kiss.

Enjoying the experience: The former soap star looked happy and relaxed as she skated on the ice

Ellison said she was 'very happy' with her dance, and Dean agreed, telling her: 'That performance was great.'

However, Spence had some good advice for the actress and told her that she needs to relax her shoulders more.

Next up was children's TV presenter Sam Nixon who took to the ice with Alexandra Schauman.

'It would be amazing to win Dancing On Ice,' Nixon said. 'But it would be better to get further in the competition than Mark,' he added, talking about his presenting partner Mark Rhodes.

Rhodes already secured his place in the competition last week so the pressure was on for Nixon.


A great first effort: Ellison was so pleased with her score and said it helped seeing her family in the audience

Skating to Fascination in a red sparkly shirt and black trousers, the dark-haired star looked cheery but nervous as he glided with his partner.

However, he completed the routine with no hiccups and no doubt his training for the London Marathon is helping him keep fit for rehearsals.

He matched Ellison on the scoring board and told Schofield that he 'absolutely loved it'.

'He was a bit wobbly' said Torvill. 'But he's worked really, really hard.'

Cousins added to this, saying: 'You had great control of your partner, and you were in control. It was a great start for you.'


Got the moves: Sam Nixon admitted that he didn't want to leave tonight as he wanted to beat his presenting partner Mark Rhodes


Bit unsure: Sam Nixon looked surprised with his score from the three judges

The third famous face to show off her skating skills was diet and fitness author and presenter Rosemary Conley.

She has been partnered with dance Mark Hanretty  - who left the show in week one last year.

The 65-year-old admitted that she's not very competitive, and Torvill and Dean picked up on this saying that she needs to take it more seriously.

The couple skated to Abba's Fernando, but Conley lost her footing in the first 30 seconds of her routine.


Not so confident: Rosemary Conley lost her footing in the first 30 seconds of her routine as she danced to Abba's Fernando

However, she soldiered on but it resulted in her receiving a score of 12.5.

'This has to be one of the scariest things I've ever done in my life,' she told host Philip Schofield. 'And I am enjoying it.'

Third judge Katarina Witt had nothing but kind words for Conley, saying: 'You are amazing, charming, beautiful but most of all you are an inspiration for us.'

The next celebrity to take to the middle of the room was another older woman, Laila Morse.


Good for her age: The judges were impressed with Conley's performance with her partner Mark Hanretty

The EastEnders actress was determined to show she can conquer the ice but experienced a nasty injury in her first weeks of training.

She and her partner Łukasz Różycki had to take a break from practising due to the damage done to her shoulder, and even during the dress rehearsal she was in pain.

But as they began their routine to My Guy, Morse looked confident as she sang along to the words of the music.

Wearing a grey sparkly dress, she and Różycki appeared to be taking their time but included several successful lifts in their performance.


In pain: Laila Morse injured her shoulder during rehearsals with her partner Lukasz Rózycki but she still decided to take to the ice


Giving it her best shot: The EastEnders actress was determined to skate well

But it seemed they didn't pay off as she only received a score of 9.5.

However, the judges numbers didn't get her down as Morse commented: 'I thought it was brilliant.'

The judges picked up on this but had to be honest with her: 'It was extremely basic but it was in control and you had fun doing it,' Cousins told her.

The panel were no doubt looking forward to the next performance by Sébastien Foucan.

The Frenchman is best known for being the founder of freerunning - a sport that has seen him star in the James Bond hit Casino Royale.


'I want to cry': Sébastien Foucan became emotional as he received his high score from the judges


Already fast: The Frenchman found his speed on the ice easy as he is used to freerunning for a living

Partnered with Brianne Delcourt, Foucan admitted that he was finding it difficult to skate as a couple as he is used to freerunning on his own.

The pair took to the ice skating to Coldplay's Clocks wearing matching gold outfits, and Foucan certainly looked confident as he kept his balance throughout the performance.

And his confidence paid off as he received a fantastic score of 17.5 which resulted in him feeling emotional.

'I feel like I want to cry,' he told Schofield. 'It's such an honour to be here.'


Not so confident: Corey Feldman looked nervous and rigid as he skated with his U.S partner Brooke Castile


Why so serious? The actor was sporting a blonde strand of hair as he skated away

'I hope you keep experimenting as more interesting things will come out of it,' Witt told him.

Someone who wasn't so confident on the ice was actor Corey Feldman.

The Hollywood star was most concerned with the fact that he might hurt himself and his anxiety showed.

Partnered with U.S. partner Brooke Castile, Feldman's progress was particularly slow and left Torvill and Dean feeling disappointed but he seemed to find it funny.

As he finally took to the ice dancing to Bryan Adam's Summer of 69, he looked in deep concentration as he began to skate.


Not such a high score: The Stand By Me actor looked rather disappointed with his total from the judging panel

Wearing a black diamante shirt and matching trousers, the actor looked rigid and kept a serious look on his face but managed to get through his routine.

He looked rather disappointed as he received his score of 11 but cheered up when he remembered his Playboy bunny supporters were in the audience.

'It was such an eye-opener watching the other celebrities last week,' Feldman told Schofield.

'You got through unscathed,' Cousins told him. 'You were very much a lost boy making up for lost time but you do need to relax.'

hopefully , they'll have a double elimination next week, and Nana Rosemary, and fragile Corey can go.... both looked as if they're scared sh*tless!! and about to break something.
Cory doesn't look healthy at all, in a way he reminds me of Michael Jackson, frail, undernourished, and I see desperation in his eyes..... spooky eh?????Unhappy

I think Corey has only just started taking it seriously, I think the fear in his eyes was the wake up call that this is a serious competition in the UK.

I'm still thinking Chico AND Matt were a tad overmarked in comparison to Jorgie in week 1.

However, the right two went (for a nice change) especially a lot of the voting is based on celeb awareness as well as skating ability. I was fretting that Seb wasn't well known enough to the DOI viewers so I like to think he got through on talent alone*

Maybe Laila could've scraped through if her attitude and demeanor were a little softer. Don't forget Colleen oustayed her welcome by bleeding weeks; based on her appearing on a popular daytime show (Lailas has Eastenders of course) and her 'I'm doing it for the older ladeez and oh, look at me, I'm shit but I'm trying' whereas Laila came over as a tough old bird. I thought even mumsy old Pip looked terrified of her.

*Talking of Seb (yes, I'm going to go on and on about this Whistle)  Chris knows full well that anything he says on the celebs' training VT is going to affect the voting public, remember when Sharron dared to question his choreography? She was booted on her arse that very night. Sure enough the judges, well Robin, picked up on it, which for the first time (slow learner, much?) made me realise that their comments were well rehearsed. It made me think that there was a little too much co-ordination on the panel.  Anyone notice that for a brand new panel, their scores were fairly evenly matched?

Anyone miss Jason? I believe he's still in panto (Jason, your telly career, it's behind you!) Would've loved to see him square up to Laila

If we still had Jason, he would've given the public a reason to vote for Laila just to annoy him. Also, perhaps it was last week's shocker that made the public to vote which got us this bottom two.
