Telly host loses skate-off with Steve Backley

Tim Vincent became the latest celeb to be given the boot on Dancing On Ice last night.

The telly host, 35, came bottom in the public vote alongside ex-athlete Steve Backley.

But the panel of experts unanimously decided to save Steve, 38, after Tim’s lacklustre performance.

‘It’s been fantastic,’ Tim said on hearing he was on his way out. ‘Every week has been fantastic, but I’ve found my level this week, everyone has been brilliant.’

The judges also expressed their frustrations that ex-tennis star Greg Rusedski, 34 – who has consistently been bottom of the leader board – survived the public vote.

Seven contestants remain in the competition.
