Dancing On Ice 2012: Matthew Wolfenden tops leaderboard with series high score

Even Jorgie Porter's headbanger couldn't prevent Matthew Wolfenden topping the Dance On Ice leaderboard this evening.

It was the Ultimate Skills Test, with the judges awarding 6 out of their 10 points purely on the skating skills, with routines having to include a step sequence, spin and jump.

Matthew and skating partner Nina set a new series high with a score of 28 out of 30, with two 9.5s from Robin and Katarina.

Jorgie Porter meanwhile slid 0.5 points to put in a still impressive 25.5, while X Factor star Chico improved once again to score a personal best of 24 points.

At the other end of the table and despite putting in her best performance to date, Sugababes star Heidi Range still logged the lowest score of the night, with 17.5 points from the judges.

In this evening's results the judges' scores will be combined with the public votes and the three stars at the bottom will have to skate again.

Only one will survive the toughest skate off ever on Dancing On Ice, as they're challenged to perform a solo skills skate, with 23 required elements.

Dancing On Ice 2012 continues at 9:30PM tonight on ITV1.
