Angela Rippon

Nadia Sawalha and Angela Rippon have become the first celebrities to be eliminated from the 2011 series of Dancing On Ice, meaning the pair won't be taking part in the actual competition which starts in two weeks time. Nadia Sawalha and partner Mark Hanretty scored 9 points from the judges while Angela Rippon and Sean Rice scored 11.

Despite the judges' votes however, it was down only to the public to keep their favourites in with Nadia Sawalha and Angela Rippon receiving the fewest votes after a skate off Laura Hamilton who received the third fewest amount of votes.

Speaking after their exit, Nadia Sawalha said: "What I’m most gutted about is that Mark is the most beautiful skater!"

Meanwhile a disappointed Angela Rippon said: "I am gutted, I've had a wonderful time and it's been absolutely tremendous learning to skate with world class trainers."

Next week the remaining couples Dave & Frankie, Jennifer & Sylvain, Sam & Brianne, Denise & Matt, Craig & Maria, Chloe & Michael, Dominic & Alexandra and Elen & Łukasz will take to the ice for the first time and two will leave.
