Dancing On Ice’s Richard Blackwood eliminated despite Gemma Collins meltdown

Gemma Collins received the lowest score of the series but managed to avoid the dreaded dance off

Richard Blackwood has become the second celebrity to be eliminated from Dancing On Ice.

The former EastEnders star admitted he was “disappointed” as he struggled to find any words after his exit was announced.

Richard and his partner had to face Loose Women panelist Saira Khan in the dreaded skate off.

After receiving two votes to stay, Christopher Dean opted to send him home and skating legend Jayne Torvill sealed his fate.

Gemma Collins managed to avoid skating for a second time despite receiving the lowest score of the competition from the judges.

Presenter Holly Willoughby said: “This doesn’t seem right somehow. It’s too soon that’s for sure.”

Richard kept repeating “it’s all good” as he cuddled up to professional partner Carlotta Edwards.

He added: “I’m disappointed but it’s all good.”

Furious Gemma told Jason Gardiner “don’t sell stories on me” in furious rant after her performance.

The fuming TOWIE star lost her temper in incredible fashion as she slammed Jason for a brutal interview he gave this week.

The reality TV star through out her hands and said: “Can I just say one thing. Maybe if you didn’t sell stories on me I wouldn’t be so upset this week – so take that.”

Stunned Jason labelled The GC a “brat” as he tried to defend his actions, but she shouted: “Boring -next.”

Fiery-tongued Jason told Gemma that her outburst “doesn’t help her cause” and called her a “brat”.

Presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, who Gemma also fell out with this week, had to step in to stop the on air clash from escalating.

Gemma continued to repeatedly shout: “Don’t sell stories on me.”

With the live show descending into chaos, Holly moved across to calm Gemma down,

While co-host Phillip, who wanted to move on, said: “Lets jump in here.”
