Jeremy Edwards Is Third To Skate Off Dancing On Iceby Contributor | 26 January 2009
Actor Jeremy Edwards has become the latest celebrity voted off the new series of Dancing On Ice.
The former Holby City star skated for the last time after the judging panel chose to save ex-rugby league player Ellery Hanley and his partner during the skate-off.
"It's sink or swim in the skate-off and it's quite obvious who sunk tonight," said Jason Gardiner as he cast his vote for Ellery.
And Nicky Slater added: "I think nerves played a part on one performance here."
Following his departure, Jeremy said he had "loved every second" of his time on the ITV1 talent contest.
"Despite what the judges thought, my first skate tonight was the most fun I've ever had. It was fantastic and I loved it," he added.
"If you're going to go out to anyone, go out to Ellery. He's such a top bloke and definitely the best man won tonight, so well done to him."
Edwards' exit was somewhat of a surprise, after EastEnders actor Todd Carty had flown off the rink during an unremarkable dance to Help! by the Beatles.
Fellow contestant Jessica Taylor said she believes Todd could become the Dancing On Ice equivalent of Strictly Come Dancing favourite John Sergeant and remain on the show for longer than his limited abilities might merit.
Former footballer Graeme Le Saux and actress Gemma Bissix have already been voted off the new series of Dancing On Ice.
