Celebs were right to get rid of me, says ex-DOI contestant Dominic Cork

Former Dancing On Ice contestant Dominic Cork has said that his fellow celebrity contestants were right to get rid of him in last night's skate off. The cricketer found himself in the bottom two for a second week in a row on Sunday's performance show, this time alongside telly presenter Jeff Brazier.

In a cruel twist however it wasn't the judges who decided which of the pair was going home - that decision was down to the remaining safe celebrities! With the contestants one by one being asked who they wanted to save, Jeff received six votes to Dominic's three.

Speaking on This Morning today, Dominic admitted it was the right decision. "For me I thought it was good entertainment and I think that's what that show's all about," he explained. "Chloe was in tears, and I went up to Chloe afterwards and I said, 'Look, don't worry about it. At the end of the day you have to make a decision, you go with your heart, and you just have to stick by your decision.'"

Asked whether he felt the decision by his former fellow contestants was the correct one, the Hampshire sport legend said: "I think so yes. Because if I'm honest, yes, I would have probably gone because Jeff is probably a stronger skater at the moment."

The 39-year-old also took the opportunity to praise his professional partner on the show, Alexandra Schauman, saying: "She's been fantastic. And the one most emotional thing about it is that I'll miss her."

Dancing On Ice continues this Sunday on ITV1.
