Joe Pasquale has admitted he's not shocked by his exit from Dancing On Ice 2013 this evening.
Last night saw Joe bow out in the latest Dancing On Ice 2013 results show.
The comic was in the bottom two for the first time after his latest skate, having to perform against pal and fellow comic Keith Chegwin in the skate off.
Despite it being his third time in the danger zone, Keith was saved by all four of the judges over Joe.
Speaking after his exit, Joe confessed: “It’s a shame but I’ve lived five weeks longer than I should have done.”
Discussing his exit on This Morning earlier today, Joe revealed: “I look at the whole thing as a positive experience, because I didn’t get stressed at all. The only time I got stressed was at the very beginning of the show when they said ‘Please welcome Joe Pasquale and his partner.’
“My knees would go a little bit then but we worked out a method where I could breathe through it. I pretended we were on our own and I was completely naked with a badger on my back.”
And Joe was over the moon about reaching the halfway point of the competition.
He said: "If you had seen me on the very first day, I was like…I did half an hour on the ice and thirty times, once a minute I fell over.
“I kept saying to Chris [Dean] ‘how do you expect me to get to this certain level in a couple of months’ time?’”
But he joked: “I would like to have had a go at the Bolero , as I had a plan for the costume. I was going to have a great big pigeon’s head on top and a rubber chicken tied around my neck.”
