Dancing On Ice 2012 hopeful Jennifer Ellison was left in tears on this evening’s live semi-final show after tripping up on the ice.

Jennifer, who performed a risky reverse neck spin with professional partner Daniel Whiston, stumbled during her performance to Whitney Houston classic I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

"I messed that up," a teary Jennifer told Dancing On Ice hosts Christine Bleakley and Phillip Schofield after the skate. "I just feel like that I let myself down a bit."

Partner Dan added: "Jen has worked her way from the bottom of the pack through to the of the leaderboard, she absolutely deserves to be here."

Jayne Torvill reassured her: "Jen, you should be proud of that performance, other than the little stumble it was so polished. You've come a long way and it was a difficult routine."

But despite the trip, the judges still awarded the soap actress an impressive 8 points each, just 0.5 points below her best score.

Fortunately there's still time for Jen to get back on top, with the remaining four skaters taking on the Ultimate Skills Test later this evening.
