Sam Nixon voted out of 'Dancing on Ice'

By
Sam Nixon has become the latest celebrity to leave Dancing on Ice.

The CBBC host was voted out of the ITV skating competition after landing in the bottom two with Chico when viewer votes and judges' scores for their 'rock' routines were combined.

In the judges' vote, Louie Spence, Robin Cousins and Katarina Witt all praised the pair for their improved skate-off performances, but unanimously elected to eliminate Nixon.

In registering his verdict, Spence told Chico: "You really took on board what we said about that finesse", while Cousins said that Chico managed to "step up that little bit more".

Speaking to hosts Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley, Nixon said that he had an "absolutely awesome" time on Dancing on Ice.

"This experience has been absolutely awesome, what a privilege to be taught how to skate by Torvill and Dean," he said, before turning to pro partner Alexandra Schauman and saying: "This woman here has been absolutely awesome."

In return, Torvill and Dean described Nixon as "such a joy to work with" and congratulated him on his progress.

Nixon's hosting partner Mark Rhodes was eliminated from the show five weeks ago.

Dancing on Ice returns with a special team challenge next Sunday (March 4) on ITV1.
