Dancing On Ice reveals big new twist for next weekend’s show

Dancing On Ice has dropped a brand new twist for next weekend’s live show.


At the end of Sunday evening’s episode, hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby had an announcement for the celebrities.

Next weekend will see a double elimination as TWO celebrities get the axe.

The line up of skating stars will be performing live once more, for a place in the semi-finals.

Three will then go forward to the skate off, where one will be saved by the judges.

“How it’s going to work is three people are actually going to do the skate-off. First time we’ve ever done this,” pro skater Matt Evers explained on ITV’s This Morning today. “Then the judges will save one. So its going to be a super-sized skate-off this week.”


Sunday night saw the eight remaining celebrities skating together for the fifth time.

Following each of the celeb’s latest live performances, it was singer Lemar who was voted off Dancing On Ice 2018 after the skate off against media personality Donna Air.

In the skate off, judges Jayne Torvill, Christopher Dean, Jason Gardiner and Ashley Banjo decided who to save after the couples skated again.

Jason, Ashley and Jayne all saved Donna, leaving Lemar to go home. Although his casting vote was not needed, head judge Chris also saved Donna.

After Lemar’s exit, those on the celebrity line up alongside Donna and her professional skater Mark Hanretty include Alex Beresford and pro skater Brianne Delcourt.

They’re joined by rugby hunk Max Evans and his pro skater Ale Izquierdo, and Coronation Street Brooke Vincent and her pro partner Matej Silecky.

Also back on the ice are Love Island’s Kem Cetinay and his pro partner Alex Murphy, X Factor’s Jake Quickenden and skater Vanessa Bauer, Corrie actor Antony Cotton and Brandee Malto.

Jake Quickenden remains the firm favourite to win the series, topping the scoreboard again this weekend.


He matched his record score of 33.5 points out of 40, remaining the only celebrity so far to break the 30-point mark.

Dancing On Ice continues next Sunday night on ITV.
