Craig McLachlan

Elen Rivas and Craig McLachlan have become the latest 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 next Sunday. Elen Rivas and partner Łukasz Różycki scored 11 points from the judges while Craig McLachlan and Maria Filippov scored 9.

Despite the judges' votes however, it was down only to the public to keep their favourites in with Elen Rivas and Craig McLachlan receiving the fewest votes after a skate off Jennifer Metcalfe who received the third fewest amount of votes.

Speaking after her exit, a tearful Elen Rivas could only manage to say she enjoyed her short time on the ice.

Meanwhile a disappointed Craig McLachlan said: "I've had the best time with [the other celebs] and [Maria] is an absolute treasure."

Next week the competition will kick off for real, with the 12 contestants as chosen by the public all skating together for the first time.
