The Poison Dwarf has left the building! Former Dallas star Charlene Tilton is the next celebrity to be voted off Dancing on Ice

By Kirsty Mccormack

She may have been dressed as Lady Gaga but that wasn't enough to save Charlene Tilton.

The actress, 53, became the latest contestant to be voted off Dancing On Ice tonight following a performance to the hit song Poker Face.

However, the Dallas star didn't seem to upset about her departure and instead praised everyone for the 'amazing experience' she had had.


Still smiling! Charlene Tilton was voted off Dancing On Ice last night, but still managed to keep a smile on her face

'I feel alright,' she told host Philip Schofield after the judging panel decided to save TV presenter Sam Nixon.

'I have worked with the best wardrobe and make-up team I have ever worked with, I've had fun.'

She then went on to tell judge Louie Spence that she wants him to come to Los Angeles.

'You're going to be my new BFF,' she shouted to him as she grabbed the microphone off of Philip.


Waiting to hear: Charlene finds out she is the latest contestant to be voted off


Going Gaga: Charlene Tilton did a rendition of Poker Face with her partner Mathew Gonzalez

Charlene failed to impress the judges completely earlier on in the night when she skated with partner Matthew Gonzalez.

The older star was given her fastest routine to date with the Gaga song and was feeling mixed emotions towards the routine.

'Lady Gaga right now is iconic, she's the biggest pop star in the world right now,' Charlene said.

'This routine is definitely pushing me. I knew when they gave me the choreography that I wouldn't get it but my goal this week is to not end up in the skate off.'


Trying her best: The Dallas actress showed off her flexibility but only received a score of 13.5

Unfortunately her goal was not met and despite trying her best to look like Gaga, with a blonde wig and a blue sequined outfit, Charlene's efforts were not enough.

She received a score of 13.5, with head judge Robin Cousins telling her: 'Great attitude and the split lift was fantastic, but Matt was pushing you around and there is nothing new technically that you're doing. I love to watch you but it's not enough right now.'

Someone else who was told their performance just wasn't enough was Sam.

The former Pop Idol contestant also found himself in the skate off following his performance to Wham's Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.


Unsure of his fate: Sam Nixon found himself up against Charlene in the skate off

Dancing with his partner Alexandra Schauman, Sam had been feeling very nervous about a lift that he had to perform.

'If I can control my nerves, I'm hoping fingers crossed I can do my best,' he said worryingly during rehearsals.

The pair looked very eighties as they took to the ice with Sam a George Michael style wig.

He looked very nervous in the build-up to the lift but managed to get through it without dropping his partner.


George Michael fan: Sam's wig proved to be a hit with viewers of the show

Commenting on his performance, he said: 'It's been a tough day today, the nerves are not great but Alex has been great.

'These women are amazing, they're putting so much trust into idiots like me.'

After receiving a score of 16.5, Katerina told Sam: 'To me you're like a surprise egg, when you open up you never know what you're going to get.

'You're becoming more of a pair skater. The lift was safe and I liked all the steps.'

Louie was a bit more critical of Sam's performance, adding: 'This week there were moments when you were in partnership, but then other times you let your arm drop. You need to up your game a little bit.'


Feeling nervous: Sam Nixon danced to Wham hit Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go

No doubt this is advice that Sam will be taking on board after nearly leaving the competition last night.

Another contestant who was feeling nervous but found themselves safe for next week was Jennifer Ellison who was up first on the ice dancing with partner Daniel Whiston.

With her blonde hair slicked back and wearing a black suit outfit, Jennifer looked just like Madonna in her heyday as she got ready for a performance to hit track Vogue.

Talking about her performance on last week's show, Jennifer said: 'I do think it was my best performance, it was the first time I have skated and actually enjoyed myself.'


Strike a pose: Jennifer Ellison certainly looked the part as she skated to Madonna's Vogue

Preparing for this week's performance, she said: 'The track is Vogue which is one of the most iconic songs and videos of all time. I've got a lot to live up to.'

And the former Brookside actress even sought the help of professional choreographer Darren Suarez, who boasted that he has been 'vogue-ing since 1989'.

Jennifer looked semi-confident as she took to the ice and ended up scoring 17.

When host Philip Schofield commented on her nerves, she replied: 'The trouble I have is I feel like Jane when I'm in the training room, then I get on here and my legs turn to jelly.'


Progressing each week: The former soap star was told that she needs to 'let go a bit more'

But the show's judges didn't have many bad words to say about her performance.

'It was, for me, a lovely performance, said Louie Spence.

'It wasn't amazing or fantastic, but it was lovely. But I do feel like you've got loads more to offer Jen. You've got the potential to go all the way.

Another celebrity who seems to have that potential is Sebastian Foucan.

The free-running star danced to Scissor Sisters' Fire With Fire with his partner Brianne Delcourt wearing a shiny gold top and black trousers.


Putting a lot of work into it: Sebastian Foucan told host Philip Schofield that he is continuing to put his best efforts in

'Last week was fantastic,' Sebastian said during rehearsals. 'I felt like I was really with the audience.

'I was really happy to win immunity, it's given me extra confidence.'

The French stars routine was very fast and got faster throughout but he managed it and received a score of 21.5.

Following this, Sebastian told Philip that it helps if you're not scared of the ice, 'but you still have to put a lot of work into it,' he added.


Great speed: The Frenchman was able to keep up with the fast routine

'This is what I was looking for, Louie told him.

'You were on fire when you opened the number. You had beautiful arm lines and it got me excited!'

Katarina also had good things to say about his routine, commenting: 'I am completely in love with your spirit. You are fearless, you have the energy and you are strong out there.'

Next up on the ice was another one of the female celebrities in the form of Heidi Range.

The Sugababe star was dancing to Jessie J's hit Price Tag with her partner Andrei Lipanov and was feeling very nervous about going it alone at one point.


Price tag: Heidi Range skated to the Jessie J hit with her partner Andrei Lipanov

'I was so relieved when I got immunity,' Heidi said. 'It gave me encouragement to keep pushing myself more. But as soon as Andrei let's go of me, I just lose it.'

Heidi wore an all-in-one black sheer outfit with black underwear on underneath and managed to skate on her own during the routine which resulted in her receiving her highest score to date of 16.5.


Showing off: The singer wore a sheer all-in-one black outfit that highlighted her fantastic figure

'That step has given me nightmares all week,' she told Philip. 'But I did it so I'm really pleased.'

'Obviously she's getting better, it was great performance,' Christopher added.

Louie also praised the singer after she tackled a skate on her own, telling her: 'I thought you did a great job. The connection was wonderful, this was simplicity at its best.

'I really enjoyed it, keep going this way Heidi.'


Crazy lift: The Sugababe was feeling rather nervous about being flipped upside down but she got through it

Following Heidi was actor Andy Whyment and his partner Vicky Ogden.

Dancing to The Proclaimers hit (I'm gonna be) 500 Miles, the pair certainly enjoyed the routine.

'It's a great song and the routine is fantastic,' Andy said ahead of his performance.

'All week I've been busy at Coronation street, so I couldn't dedicate 100% to dancing on ice.'

Wearing an all black outfit, Andy started by sitting on the ice but made sure that there was plenty of humour in his skate.


Bringing humour to the show: Andy Whyment skated along to a hot by The Proclaimers

It worked because the judges gave him a score of 17.5 and he even admitted that he had a 'great time.'

'You are fun to watch and you had all that confidence skating on your own,' Robin told him.

Katarina agreed, saying: 'What I like most is that the two of have got a really nice chemistry.'

Following Andy was Chemmy Alcott who skated to Kylie Minogue's hit Locomotion with partner Sean Rice.

'Ive got some big lifts,' she said nervously in rehearsals. 'At the back of my mind I do worry as Katarina thinks I cant do it.'


Fun as Kylie: Chemmy Alcott dressed all in red to do the Locomotion on ice

'I know that she has advised against it but I want to do what the other girls are doing.'

Wearing a red tutu dress and matching head band, the professional skier certainly proved Katarina wrong and performed her lift injury-free.

She received a score of 20, which was her highest so far, and told Philip afterwards: 'That was fab and I really enjoyed it.'

Robin agreed with her and said: 'The energy as always was great. Everything is seamless and it was wonderful to watch you.'


Happy with her efforts: The blonde ignored Katarina's advice and performed a risky lift

Following in Chemmy's footsteps was actor Matthew Wolfenden and Nina Ulanova.

'I've had a bit of a back problem so I had a few days off the ice,' Matthew revealed ahead of his performance.

'I'm more nervous about this week than I have been for the previous weeks as there's things in there that I can't do.'

But he needn't have worried as the panel still gave him a combined score of 23, to which he responded: 'I don't feel like I deserved it on that. I was really nervous about tonight and I made a few mistakes but I got through it.'


Not so confident: Matthew Wolfenden was feeling a little nervous as he took to the ice with Nina Ulanova due to his back problem

'It doesn't take a lot to love u Matt,' Louie told him. 'It was consistent, it was fluid and it was a pleasure to watch. I'm loving you.'

Someone who as feeling a bit more confident was singer Chico.

The dark-haired star skated energetically to the S Club 7 hit Don't Stop Moving wearing a silver top and black trousers with his partner Jodeyne Higgins.

'I have to be on top of my game because the standard is so high,' Chico said before his turn on the rink.


Got the moves: Chico was confident on the ice as he skated to an S Club 7 hit

He too received his own personal best of 21.5 and told Philip that he thinks the best motive is to just 'push yourself.'

'From the first show you have been solid as a rock,' Katarina told him.

'To be so alone out there for quite some time was good and I always love what I see from you.'

However, Robin had some critical advice for Chico, saying: 'You get ahead of yourself a little bit. My advice would be to look after yourself a little bit.'

But the show soon went from energetic to uneasy as Rosemary Conley tackled a tricky lift with her partner Mark Hanretty.


Feeling sick: Rosemary Conley admitted that one of the lifts made her feel uneasy

The diet and fitness guru admitted that the move in rehearsals had been making her feel dizzy and sick but said she would give it her best shot.

'It's really quite a scary lift. I felt so nauseous, I really thought I was going to throw up but it was a close shave.'

Skating in a purple pleated dress, Rosemary certainly seemed a little nervous with her feet as she skated but received a great score of 17.


Heartthrobs: One Direction treated fans to two performances - one on the earlier show and this one on the results show

'It totally works for me, Katarina told her. 'It's so amazing the challenges you take on. It was really beautiful pair skating.'

However, Louie wasn't so nice and told Rosemary it could have bordered on 'boring.'

But someone who certainly wasn't boring was Jorgie Porter.


Schoolgirl chic: Jorgie Porter topped the scoreboard again with a total of 24


As it stands: The way the scoreboard looked at the end of the show

The Hollyoaks star skated in a schoolgirl's outfit to the Britney Spears hit Baby One More Time and managed to top the scoreboard once again receiving a total of 24.

However, Louie wasn't so nice and told Rosemary it could have bordered on 'boring.'

But someone who certainly wasn't boring was Jorgie Porter.

The Hollyoaks star skated in a schoolgirl's outfit to the Britney Spears hit Baby One More Time and managed to top the scoreboard once again receiving a total of 24.

Jennifer really was not much better than Rosemary - she barely skates on her own and is pushed around by Daniel IMO

Rosemary is just pushed around and does not leave go at all how on earth she beat Heidi and Sam do not know (even though Sam's routine was poor )  even Charlene did more skating than Rosemary - Katarina's mark was crazy and helped her stay in IMO
