Dancing On Ice 2013 results: Matt Lapinskas tops semi-final leaderboard

Matt Lapinskas (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Matt Lapinskas won tonight's Dancing On Ice 2013 semi-final, topping the leaderboard for a third week in a row.

This evening saw all four of the reaming celebrity skaters performing with an element of flight in their routine as they battled to make the final next weekend.

Favourite Math Lapinskas was first out with pro partner Brianne Delcourt and once again wowed the judges, scoring the first tens of the series. Robin Cousins gushed: "It was the best male flying we've seen in the series so far, it was beautiful from beginning to end." With only Jason Gardiner not awarding a ten, Matt scored the best marks of the series to date.

Beth Tweddle and pro partner Dan Whiston were next as the pair rocked out to Jessie J's Domino, but while it got the pair their personal best marks of the series it wasn't enough to keep up with Matt. Ashley Roberts complained: "I still want to see more attack, it is the semi-finals."

Luke Campbell was next and despite admitting to being nervous of heights, it didn't show as he put on a beautiful romantic routine with pro partner Jenna Smith. However Jason wasn't impressed, remarking: "You do not express anything when you're in the air, it was like you were devoid of any emotional connection with the piece or your partner."

Gareth Thomas then was last out on the ice but didn't fly, after medics told him to stay on the ground. Despite the lack of flying, Jason praised "Your transformation has been quite remarkable!"

Matt then returned and scored another 39 points, but this time it saw tens from both Ashley and Jason Gardiner, who said: "That was a semi-final performance!"

Beth closed the show with her best marks of the series, just a point behind Matt with 38 marks from the panel, including a ten from Robin.
