On your skates! Football great David Seaman and EastEnders' Gary Lucy voted off second heat of Dancing On Ice

By Marc Andrews

Football great David Seaman and EastEnders actor Gary Lucy were voted off the second heat of ITV's Dancing On Ice on Sunday evening.

David and skate partner Frankie Poultney proved to have the fewest viewer votes, while Gary and skate partner Katie Stainsby were the losers in the judges' eyes in the final skate-off against Sam Attwater and real-life partner Vicky Ogden. Sam and Vicky performed a rousing skate version of Riverdance that means they go through to the next round of Dancing On Ice.

Series Nine of the show is also the final 'All-Stars' series which features former winners and previous contestants. Eliminated in the first week were actress Jorgie Porter and comedian Joe Pasquale.

Well presented! Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley give Dancing On Ice a touch of class and elegance


The show kicked off with 'the likes of which you have never seen before' according to co-presenter Christine Bleakley, as the show's skating professionals performed to Flo Rida's Good Feeling with  plenty of magic-inspired moments on the ice.

Dressed predominantly in baby blue and waving black umbrellas the skaters created an almost Singing In The Rain moment on the ice. Spectacular was truly an appropriate word for it.

Christine wore a clingy gold leaf embroidered black dress that gave her both a touch of class and an air of sophisticated elegance.

After the mesmerising start to the show, co-presenter Phillip Schofield briefly spoke to mentors Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean about the bruising contest, before introducing the 'ice panel' of judges - Jason Gardiner, Ashley Roberts, Robin Cousins and Karen Barber.


Jungle Fever! Beth and Lukasz in their Roar-inspired costumes

First contestant on the ice was defending champion, gymnast Beth Tweddle, who declared she especially wanted this performance to really impress judge Jason Gardiner.

Skating to Katy Perry's Roar, Beth gave her moment on the ice a jungle-themed theme, wearing a sexy tiger-print top and a leafy fruity skirt as she skated with partner Łukasz Różycki.

Her total score was 28.5 from the judges. Judge Jason said: 'It was a nice way to start off the show', before adding, 'I need you to work on finding that inner performer and coming out with it and coming out with it strong. I wanted a tigress and you were giving me a pussycat.'

Tiger skates! Even Beth's icy footwear teamed with the theme for her performance of Roar

'For me the defending champion is back and means business,' judge Karen noted of Beth's animalistic delivery.

'I tried to go out with the performance and I know I still have to go out with more,' Beth declared, still managing to smile after giving it her all.

Mentor Jayne Torvill said she thought Beth delivered a great performance for the first one out. 'There are bigger and better things coming and I did see a bit of a tiger coming out at the end from you,' she added.

Second to take to the ice was football legend David Seaman who danced with his real-life partner Frankie Poultney, giving each other a big smooch in the video shown before they took to the ice.

Skating to The Kinks' classic hit 'You Really Got Me' the two put on a swinging sixties performance that even involved Frankie literally being swung 'in the headbanger' via her skates by spangly-panted David. Athough there was a major flub early in their routine it could have been much worse and David proved, as always, to be good at a quick recovery.

The judges delivered their verdict on the groovy kinda ice skate by giving the couple a total of 22.5.

Phillip asked 'gentle giant' Dave about the minor mess up during their skate. 'I messed me hands up,' David replied honestly.

'Considering what could have happened that was really a game of two halves,' judge Karen pointed out. Jason was less forgiving though. 'David, your skating has improved. You got the headbanger and you didn't smash her head in so it's all good. You're big and you run the risk of being a bit dull. You have to inject a bit of personality in it. Bring that on to the ice.'

'He's not dull, he was concentrated,' Frankie jumped in to reply. Christopher Dean added afterwards that David 'gets so nervous and so lets concentrate on giving a better performance'.

Up next was EastEnders actor Gary Lucy, runner up in series five, who skated with feisty partner Katie Stainsby who added he was 'in it to go as far as I can and I'm in it to win it'.

Skating to Bastille's Pompeii, his feisty partner Katie Stainsby wore sparkly blue boots and matching pants and top with a netting middle. Fit Gary wore a sparkly blue vest and black trousers as the duo shown off some impressive ice magic, notably the 'laid-back lucy' together.

When the verdict came in the score for their routine was a respectable 24.

Jason only gave the couple a five in his score. 'I was expecting so much more of you.' he told Gary. 'As the wheels went along the wheels slowly went Lucy...it was, again, dull.'

Judge Robin Cousins called the performance 'safe' while judge Karen added, 'we need commitment from you now and to leave the nerves'. Judge Ashley Roberts added: 'The energy level needs to be high - just enjoy it.'

'It was slightly wobbly in places, but the best one we've done so far,' a relieved Gary replied.

'You need to show off because you are a natural skater,' Jane Torvill told him in her mentor role.


Nice on the ice! Gary and Katie have fun while they perform for the audience and the TV viewers

Actress Zaraah Abrahams, who admitted to having real nerves about her performances, was next up and skated with partner Andrew Buchanan to classic 70s disco hit Lady Marmalade from LaBelle.

The well-rehearsed spirited performance had some fitting bright blue feathers in Zaraah's costume and lots of strutting and impressive movements including the daring and impressive 'Detroit-er' movement.

The judges clearly agreed that the duo dazzled, as did the audience with a standing ovation, creating a new leader at that point with a score of 30.5.

Ashley, who only only gave the pair a seven, told Zaraah: 'I'm expecting a lot of sass from you - I want you to bring it...otherwise amazing.'

Technically, judge Robin, told her, 'You were a powerhouse and tonight the spin was terrific.

'Girl you are no longer under the radar, you are on the top of the pile.'


Watching from the wings! Zaraah and Andy's routine brought plenty of applause from Torvill and Dean

'I can't believe it, I can't,' Zaraah said of her high score. 'I'm literally peeing my pants.'

'That's never good on ice,' Phillip quipped.

Mentor Christopher added: 'You were matching Andrew for speed, lifts and strength and I thought you were giving it a lot of sass tonight.'

Champion from the 2011 Dancing On Ice, actor Sam 'skating viagra' Attwater was up next with real-life fiancee Vicky Ogden. The two, who met and fell in love on the Dancing On Ice tour, took to the rink performing to the very apt Marry You from Bruno Mars.

Dressed all in white, with Vicky wearing a skate-style wedding dress of sorts and Sam as a handsome groom, the pair showed real chemistry and intricate moves. At the end of their performance the two brought on a flower boy and girl, plus a bouquet and veil and cutely kissed on the ice.

The judges liked their 'helicopter' and 'whirly bird' giving the duo a combined score of 30, landing them in second place at that point.

'It was a great performance,' Judge Karen said. 'It was entertaining and who said romance is dead.'

Ashley added: 'You guys look like you were enjoying yourselves out there. That's what it's all about.'

Jason said he was relieved Sam was in the competition, before pointing out, 'tonight it was a little bit ropey and those little stumbles really knocked your confidence.

'I felt a lot more relaxed than last time, but she makes me feel weak at the knees,' a gushy Sam told Phillip about the performance.

'I love Sam to bits and to skate with him is even more of a pleasure,' Vicky replied. Incidentally the flowergirl from the Dancing On Ice performance will also be flowergirl at the pair's wedding later this year.


The Big Proposal! Sam and Vicky#s routine was very in tune with their real-life situation

Next to take to the ice was actor Todd Carty who was dancing with partner Alexandra Schauman to Perry Como's campy fifties hit Papa Loves Mambo.

In 2009 Todd literally disappeared down a tunnel during his Dancing On Ice routine and he said he was coming back again because 'i can't be any worse.

'I want to enjoy it with all of my heart and soul. The great British public like a trier. Let's see what happens this time.'


No skate zone! Phillip brought on this sign to ward off Todd from veering off the skating rink


Glamour girls! Judges Karen and Ashley seemed to be enjoying the show

For his 2014 ice routine, the brightly-dressed Todd performed a fun and decidedly silly number.

His skate partner Alex seemed to vaguely resemble a reincarnation of legendary South American actress Carmen Miranda.

The judges gave the two a rather low combined score of only 16.5.


Todd got Mambo! The actor shows off his somewhat sillier side on Dancing On Ice

'We have to be thankful that you stayed on two feet for most of the time and that you stayed in the rink for all of the time,' judge Robin quipped.

Judge Karen said Todd had improved 'but you have to try a lot harder'.

Jason added: 'The only thing you have up your sleeve is that you haven't really impressed at all.


Conga line! Todd put his best skate forward for his colourful routine

'Your partner was dragging you around and I have to ask - why are you here? It wasn't entertaining,' he said as the crowd cheered the two. 'Oh, what do they know?!'

Phillip said he thought it WAS entertaining and was glad that Todd was back. 'It's lovely to be asked back after my spectacular accident,' a nervous Todd replied. Christopher Dean said 'the skating speaks for itself but the colour is amazing and the audience are loving it.'


The crowd approves! Although the judges were impressed, the audience loved Todd and Alex's performance


Judges love Mambo! Not quite, but Torvill and Dean found it rather entertaining like the audience did

The last performance came from actress/singer Suzanne Shaw, winner of series three, with partner Matt Evers who chose the moving song Stay from Rihanna.

Dressed in a red one-piece skate costume, Suzanne demonstrated some terrific techniques like the 'arching float' and real heartfelt emotion on the ice, that put paid her troubles earlier during the rehearsals.

The crowd gave the two a standing ovation while the judges scored them the highest of the show with a staggering 35.5.


Emotion on Ice! Suzanne Shaw and Matt Evers scored the best judge vote for the night and rightly so

Grabbing the first nines of the series, the judges were totally enthusiastic about Suzanne's routine.

'There is something about when you skate and it was believable. |Sometimes you don't need words. It was the best performance of the night,' Judge Karen said.

'I feel on top of the world. I'm shocked. We were in the moment. I put us in a moment. We skated and I love skating with this man,' Suzanne admitted.

'You don't mind the hard work and you have worked hard - we're all a bit jealous actually,' Jayne Torvill confessed.


True ice magic! Suzanne and Matt danced to Rihanna's beautiful Stay hit

With the judges scores only for guidance the ITV viewers then had the opportunity to vote for their favourites and, more importantly, eliminate two of the contestants.

In the end, David Seaman received the fewest votes from viewers, while Gary Lucy lost the skate-off against Sam Attwater in the judges' eyes.

Sam and partner Vicky's rousing skate rendition of Riverdance proved to be unstoppable which means they will return to skate again on Dancing On Ice.


The moment of truth! The viewers have their say on who stays and who leaves the Ice for good


Clapping On Ice! Zaraah Abrahams is overwhelmed that she gets to stay to skate another week on the show

On the first heat of the series after putting up a good fight on the ice Jorgie Porter and Sylvain Longchambon left Dancing On Ice after being voted out before a skate-off between Bonnie Langford and Joe Pasquale.

The pair were asked to leave by Phillip Schofield after the public vote earlier in the evening left them at near the bottom of the leader board, despite winning the third highest score of the evening.

After a tense skate off Joe Pasquale was also voted off after all the judges voted to save Bonnie Langford.
