Dancing On Ice

The nine remaining Dancing On Ice 2012 celebrities will face the Ultimate Skills Test on next week's show, with a tough skate off and a double elimination planned to help motivate the stars!

Hosts Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley, revealed the news on tonight's latest live show, which saw Rosemary Conley become the latest Dancing On Ice star to be axed.

The remaining skaters will be tested on their "pure skating availability", with three contestants facing the "toughest skate off" in Dancing On Ice history.

They'll have to take to the ice solo and successfully carry out no fewer than 23 separate skills.

The required elements include everything from Forward and Backward Crossovers to Spins, Spirals and even a Waltz Jump for good measure.

And in an extra twist, TWO celebrities will be eliminated next weekend.

Coach Christopher Dean said: "It's going to be a tough test, it's all about the skating and they've got to do it alone. We've got to sort out from those who can skate and those who can't."

Dancing On Ice 2012 airs on Sundays on ITV1.
