Last night Loose Women star Denise Welch became the latest celebrity to be voted off ‘Dancing On Ice’.
The former Coronation Street actress – who took to the ice to perform an emotional routine with her partner Matt Evershit to Heart’s ‘Alone’ – landed in the bottom two alongside war hero Johnson Beharry. After the skate off the panel unanimously decided to send her home.
However, Denise’s exit from the ITV1 show wasn’t unexpected. Her 59-year-old actor husband Tim Healy did her no favours by marching on to the stage to and blasting Jason Gardiner who was mid flow in a nasty critique of his wife.
Jason said: “It shows that you are better at the slower stuff – but I would like to say it was a little bit like watching two people play Twister. It was like Matt did a position then he assisted you into another position, there was no flow.”
While Denise pleaded with her spouse to go back to his seat in the audience, the ‘Benidorm’ star defended his wife’s honour.
He told Jason: “She’s 52 and she’s got four jobs! How many jobs have you got, eh?”
A visibly shocked Denise then joked to ‘Dancing On Ice’ hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: “It’s only the transvestite off of Benidorm!”
However, when told she would be skating off the show later in the night, the bolshie blonde admitted she had performed the best she could.
She said: “It was bound to happen at some point wasn’t it? But I’ve had the most fantastic time, the experience of a lifetime. I loved it, I did the best I could the second time.”
