Dancing On Ice star Vanilla Ice is going home to Florida
The Ice Ice Baby rapper – aka Robert Matthew Van Winkle – ended up in the skate-off against Laura Hamilton and the judges unanimously saved the TV presenter.
‘Everything here has been just amazing, I appreciate the whole experience,’ Vanilla, 43, told Phillip Schofield, who co-hosted tonight’s show with Coleen Nolan after Holly Willoughby was struck down
with a migraine.
Vanilla danced a sexy Spanish Flamenco with skating partner Katie Stainsby to Justin Timberlake’s Like I Love You and certainly got Emma Bunton all hot and bothered – but it wasn’t enough.
Now he’ll be heading home to the US.
The musician’s kids encouraged him to become a Dancing On Ice contestant and he’s amazed by how much he’s learnt.
‘My two little girls Dusti Rain  and Keelee Breeze  told me to do it.’ Vanilla told Now.
They really encouraged me because I was embarrassed. I have never skated on ice in my life.
‘We don’t have ice in Florida. When I first put my skates on I was on the rail and fell down 50 times.
‘But after three months of hardcore training, two to four hours every day, I’m now doing flips and lifts and spinning – doing all that stuff.’
