PICTURES! Dancing On Ice 2013 backstage at the semi-finals

Here’s a brief look backstage at the weekend’s Dancing On Ice 2013 live show, where it was semi-final week!

From the make up chair to the green room, we got access all areas to behind the scenes at the studios and ice rink in Elstree, North London as the remaining four stars competed for a spot in the live final.

For the first time this series, the celebs had to perform twice, and deal with flying during one of their routines.

Matt Lapinskas topped the leaderboard with 78 points out of a possible total of 80.

Beth Tweddle had a mixed night, with Jason Gardiner claiming she was "dead behind the eyes" in her first performance, but the Olympian went on to get her first perfect ten in her second outing.

Then there was drama in the skate off as Gareth Thomas was forced to withdraw after medics deemed him too unwell to perform.

This Sunday it’ll all happen again for the rest of the celebs, including boxer Luke Campbell, as the trio compete to be crowned Dancing On Ice winner 2013.

But for now take a browse of our backstage pics below!
