"I was surrounded by such an amazing team of people, learnt so much and made memories to last a lifetime. It definitely wasn't the start @brendynhatfield and I had hoped for but I'm so so proud of what we achieved together and I truly couldn't have asked for a better partner.

Friends and fans rushed to comfort her, with former S Club 7 co-star Jo O'Meara writing: "You should be so proud of yourself Rachel!! You looked beautiful last night! Love you lots."

Her partner Brendyn remarked: "I loved every second. Watching how elegant, gracious, and determined you have been through the whole process has meant so much to me. I'm so happy that our paths crossed and we shared this journey together. Here’s to friends for life."

Many fans revealed their sadness at her departure, and one wrote: "Bizarre ridiculous voting last night, what a shame you are out so early. Not your fault. Silly public voting for clearly less good skaters. All the best in whatever you do next. I’m a celeb perhaps?"
