Amy Tinkler voted off of Dancing on Ice
Olympic gymnast Amy Tinkler was voted off of Dancing on Ice on 14 February, a decision which divided viewers after she was in the skate-off against Lady Leshur and pro Brendyn Hadfield.
Amy and Joe were late arrivals into the competition after stepping in to fill Denise Van Outen's shoes when she was forced to quit due to a shoulder injury.
Joe Warren Plant and Vanessa Bauer quit Dancing on Ice
After testing positive for coronavirus Joe and Vanessa had no choice but to leave Dancing on Ice just a few weeks into the competition.
Vanessa said they were devastated to have left the show, rehearsing right up until they got the dreaded phone call.
The couple were often at the top of the leaderboard, constantly impressing the judges with their routines, making their loss the show a big one.
Matt Richardson is third celebrity voted off of Dancing on Ice
Just a few days after joining the line-up when he stepped in for Rufus Hound, Matt Richardson was voted off of Dancing on Ice.
It was the comedian's first skate with partner Vicky Ogden after spending the last few months in rehearsals as a reserve.
Matt scored 23.5 out of 40 for his first skate, but the judges chose to save Colin Jackson when it came to the skate-off.
Billie Faiers quits Dancing on Ice
Billie Shepherd, formerly Faiers, had to leave Dancing on Ice after sustaining a head injury during an accident in rehearsals with partner Mark Hanretty.
It came just days after she returned to the ice following a few days off to grieve the loss of her beloved grandmother.
She thanked Mark for being a true friend and called the competition "the best experience".
Rufus Hound quits Dancing on Ice
After 10 days of isolation after coming into contact with someone who had coronavirus, Rufus himself tested positive twice meaning he had to withdraw from Dancing on Ice.
He missed two weeks of the show and any more time off would have meant he was significantly behind in the competition.
The comedian was replaced by Matt Richardson and Vicky Ogden.
Graham Bell becomes second celebrity to leave Dancing on Ice
Graham Bell became the second celebrity to leave Dancing on Ice in the skate off, after the judges saved Rebekah Vardy.
The Olympic skier skated to 'Born to Hand Jive', but unfortunately found himself at the bottom of the leaderboard.
Myleene Klass, the first celebrity to leave Dancing on Ice
Myleene Klass was the first celebrity to be voted off of Dancing on Ice, after she and partner Lukasz Rozycki received scores putting them at the bottom of the leader board.
She was in the skate-off with Lady Leshurr and her partner Brendyn Hatfield, but Jayne Torvill, Christopher Dean, Ashley Banjo and John Barrowman sent Myleene home.
Before leaving the ice, Myleene said: “I’ve never skated before, I’ve got a skill that I learnt in lockdown.
“When the rinks open I will be there, Lukasz, I will be waiting for you… I feel really chuffed, I’ve been pretty relaxed this whole competition.”
Denise van Outen leaves Dancing on Ice due to injury
Denise Van Outen officially left the show two weeks in, after dislocating her shoulder in a nasty fall on the ice with partner Matt Evers.
She has been replaced with a 'reserve' celebrity, Olympic gymnast Amy Tinkler who has been practicing with her partner, Joe Johnson, for the last three months.
