Beth Tweddle topped the Dancing On Ice 2013 leaderboard on tonight's latest live show for the first time, with 30.5 points out of a possible 40.
This evening saw all eight of the reaming celebrity skaters take part in the Leveller, requiring at least 30 seconds of solo skating in their routine.
Teacher's pet Matt Lapinskas, the last star to top the leaderboard, had scored the highest marks of the series so far with another impressive performance getting him 28 points. Karen Barber said it was "amazing" while Jason Gardiner described it as a "ballet of intensity and emotion".
But Beth finally won over the judges and smashed Matt's score to set an even higher series best and her personal best. Jason said: "You married your technical brilliance with that emotional connection, it was really so tender, I loved watching you!"
First out onto the ice was originally Corrie babe Samia Ghadie, but she failed to build on her headbanging triumph last week with just 18 points from the judges, leaving her bottom of the leaderboard.
Comic Keith Chegwin surprised us again and also kept the judges onside to outdo Samia, with Karen saying he was one of the "better skaters" but his solo routine "lacked content."
X Factor star Shayne Ward performed to Tom Jones and wowed the judges to get his highest score of the series so far, with Robin Cousins remarking that the singer looked more comfortable on his own than with his partner.
Rugby hunk Gareth Thomas received his highest score of the series too and shot up the leaderboard thanks to the best score Jason has given this year, with the often critical ice judge gushing: "That oozed loads of sex appeal, it was steamy, sultry and saucy!"
Luke Campbell improved on his marks for a second week to score more than 23.5 points, but Jason critiqued: "There's still a lot to develop... but for the first time you performed very genuinely and beautifully with your partner."
Finally Joe Pasquale went back to the comedy routines as he and partner Vicky closed the show with a 1960s themed performance, leaving them bottom of the leaderboard alongside Samia.
