Mark Rhodes skates off 'Dancing on Ice'

Monday January 23, 2012

Children's TV presenter Mark Rhodes became the third celebrity to leave Dancing On Ice after he lost a skate-off against Dallas star Charlene Tilton.

The pair had to dance with their partners for the second time during the movie-themed evening after a combination of the judges' marks and viewers' votes put them in the bottom two of the contestants on the ITV1 show.

Head judge Robin Cousins said: "Mark, it's been fun having you around, but I save Charlene." 

Another judge, Louie Spence, said: "I love your spirit Mark, but the stronger performance was Charlene." 

Mark said: "I'm absolutely gutted, but I was at the bottom in the first week, next to bottom second week, it makes sense for me to be in the skate-off.

"Charlene skated the second time absolutely brilliantly, and I messed up, so I'm absolutely fine with it." 

He praised partner Frankie, saying she had been working with "limited resources".

The joint best score from the judges - and highest judges' scores of the series so far - went to Hollyoaks star Jorgie Porter with her partner Matt Evers, whose 21.5 was matched by Emmerdale actor Matthew Wolfenden and Nina Ulanova.
