Rock week on Dancing On Ice really did rock but not in the way we expected- it shook most of the skaters confidence after an unexpected injury. Jorgie Porter unexpectedly struck her partner Matt Evers with her blade during a lift and he had to be taken to hospital to get stitches in his forehead. On the live show he had to wear a plaster! The whole cast and crew were shaken up, which made everyone a bit more cautious on the ice. In the end, it was kids TV presenter Sam Nixon who left the show, and we bet he’s probably breathing a sigh of relief the threat of injury is no longer hanging over him. Here’s the latest exclusive behind the scenes gossip:
Christine’s elegant black maxi dress and sophisticated style has caught the eye of One Direction singer Niall Horan. Christine met Niall at the Brits last week and Niall later gave an interview to the Daily Mirror saying: “Christine’s amazing. I love her. Seriously, she’s just amazing.” So girls, if you want to attract Niall then look at what Christine Bleakley’s doing. Thankfully Christine’s happily engaged to Chelsea footballer Frank Lampard, meaning there’s still a chance to date cheeky Niall, girls!
Children’s TV presenter Sam found himself in the bottom two with Chico Slimani, which was a difficult situation as Chico showed off the most impressive skills all season, throwing around his partner and lifting her as if she was as light as a feather. In the words of judge Louis Spence, Chico was saved as he added ‘more finesse’ to the show. However, judge Kristina was later overheard saying she would miss Sam because he used to bake her cakes every week. In the end, Kristina voted to save Chico as well, which goes to show that bribery doesn’t work!
Despite the injury in rehearsal the brave couple left the lift in their routine on the live show and pulled it off without blood or tears. What a relief! We can exclusively reveal Jorgie’s boyfriend James Atherton came down from Chester, where he’s based in Hollyoaks, to support her. This meant getting a 5am train to Chester the following morning but Jorgie said she skated better knowing James was watching. At least she’s got something to be happy about and now she’s had this nightmare week it can only get better from now on.
Jennifer Ellison was shaken up by Jorgie’s injury as it reminded her of her own problems when she cracked a rib in rehearsals and cut her head in a live show. The ex Brookside actress confessed she was worried about injuring herself seriously as she was conscious of the fact she had a young son. However, we did ask if there were any perks and she said: “Dressing up is fun. It’s like being a human Barbie doll. You turn up, get a spray tan, have your hair and make-up done and off you go. It’s a five-year-old’s dream.” Jennifer’s lost tons of weight so she looks incredible in the dresses she wears on the show – we loved her short white outfit and barbie doll curls on this week’s show and she’s dancing better than ever!
REMAINING CONTESTANTS: Coronation Street star Andy Whyment, singer Chico, Emmerdale actor Matthew Wolfenden, Hollyoaks star Jorgie Porter, actress Jennifer Ellison and British skier Chemmy Alcott.
