Gemma Collins leaves Dancing On Ice

Gemma Collins has left ‘Dancing On Ice’.
The ‘Only Way Is Essex’ star and her skating partner Matt Evers has been booted off the skating show, after losing out in the skate off to Ryan Sidebottom and Brandee Malto.
Speaking after her exit, she said: "I’ve had fun. I’m have a bit of like intuition and I did say tonight’s my night and that’s why I’m just going to come out and have fun. I just want to bow out gracefully now. It’s time to let them all go on. I wish them all the best of luck; they work so hard."
Asked if she’d continue skating now the show is over, she quipped: "No probably not. But you know what, I have enjoyed working on my fitness and do want to keep that up."
All four judges – Jason Gardiner, Ashley Banjo, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean – opted to save Ryan and Brandee and they will skate again next week.
Jason – who famously argued with Gemma live on air earlier in the series – said: "Based on the skate off tonight, it is very easy for me to say this and it gives me great pleasure to say it that I will be saving Ryan and Brandee."
Whilst Ashley added: "Ryan, I know injury has been really tough for you still but you came out tonight and you delivered a solid performance and a solid skate off. Gemma, I want to say welldone for putting the work in like you did and also I want to add that outside of the competition, you have to put up with some real rubbish online so I just want to say welldone for dealing with it. But based on the skate off, the couple I have to save is Ryan and Brandee."
Jayne shared: "Well Gemma I’m glad you had fun tonight but the couple I’m saving are Ryan and Brandee."
And Chris – who was this week’s head judge – said: "It came down to big character or big skater and I went with big skater, Ryan and Brandee."
‘Dancing On Ice’ continues next weekend and the remaining contestants will need to bring their best moves as it is a double elimination.
