Actress Atack skates off ice show

Emily Atack
Atack scored 18.5 points and was joint fifth with Richardson

Actress Emily Atack was voted off Dancing on Ice on Sunday after losing in a skate-off against EastEnders' Danniella Westbrook.

Despite receiving her best score of the series from the judges after her first performance, Atack found herself in the bottom two following the public vote.

"I have had the most unbelievable experience. It's changed my life. It's given me so much discipline," she said.

The 20-year-old appears in E4 teen sitcom Inbetweeners.

"I don't know what I'm going to do with myself now - I don't want to go back to normal life," said Atack.

Near miss

Boyzone singer Mikey Graham was saved by the public vote, despite being bottom of the judges' leader board.

Hollyoaks actor Kieron Richardson, Bill star Gary Lucy, former soap stars Hayley Tamaddon and Danny Young join Graham and Westbrook in making it through to next week's show.

Lucy said he was relieved to get through after his partner Maria Filippov's head came close to a barrier during one of the couple's lifts.

"It was tough. I'm absolutely exhausted but it was wicked," he said.

"I nearly knocked her out on the way round."
