Jennifer Ellison is out of Dancing On Ice

Jennifer Ellison was sent packing in last night’s Dancing On Ice semi-final after failing to impress the judges.

Her departure will be good news to her husband Robbie Tickle who she’s promised will ‘reap the benefits’ of her svelte new figure when she leaves the show.

The actress, 28, had improved immensely on her early performances but still lacked that extra level of skill that would have taken her to the final.

She left in tears, upset that she couldn’t carry on with the show which she said had taught her to believe in herself.

Chico and Jodeyne made it through, and he dropped to his knees when the news was announced.

He had been the show’s underdog for much of the series, but finally proved his worth with two great performances on tonight’s show.

And so Jennifer and Jorgie had to repeat their routines in the final dance off.

That meant another Reverse Neck Spin for Jen and another high-risk Headbanger for Jorgie.

The dance was probably better than her first effort and she fought back tears again afterwards, this time however they were tears of joy as everyone agreed it was best dance to date.

Jorgie also managed to pull of her dance a lot better than she had done first time around, even her Headbanger looked better.

Then they faced the judging panel.

Louie saved Jorgie, Robin also saved Jorgie as did Katarina – although all three agreed Jennifer had performed her best dance so far.
