Dancing On Ice was back tonight but unfortunately, it was time for one star to leave, with Ben Foden becoming the first to exit the competition.
The ITV series kicked off with a bang last weekend, with fans quickly becoming hooked by the ‘greatest show on ice’.
Six more celebrities were hoping to make it through to another week of the competition.
Rachel Stevens went through automatically after having to miss her debut skate due to injury.
Ria Hebden found herself in the bottom two following week one and was joined tonight by the rugby star.
However, after a tense skate-off, with both couples performing new routines, it was Ben who was eliminated.
The judges all decided to vote for Ria and her partner Lukasz Rozycki, meaning they sailed through to Movie Week.
Ashley Banjo said: ‘Well done to both of you, skate offs are never easy, I felt this routine had more elements,’ before going with Ria.
Elsewhere on the show tonight, Rachel gave an update on her previous wrist fracture and confirmed she is set to be back next weekend.
Speaking to host Holly Willoughby, she admitted she was ‘absolutely gutted’ and ‘so upset’ to have to miss out on this week’s performance.
Sitting next to her partner Brendyn Hatfield, she said: ‘We will be back, we are working really hard and we cannot wait.’
Rachel told fans her wrist fracture has ‘healed really well’ adding: ‘We were back on the ice yesterday.’
Next weekend’s edition will see the remaining 11 stars take to the ice for Movie Week, but who will become the next couple to wave goodbye to the ice?
Dancing On Ice continues next Sunday at 6.30pm on ITV.
