Former Page Three model Linda Lusardi has become the latest celebrity to be voted off ITV1's Dancing on Ice series.

She and partner Dan Whiston left the programme after losing out in the skate-off to former Coronation Street star Zaraah Abrahams.

Actress and singer Suzanne Shaw topped the leaderboard with 27.5 out of 30.

And judge Nicky Slater made it to the studio with only minutes to spare after dashing back from Brighton, where his wife gave birth to their first child.

'Like dodging bullets'

Hollyoaks actor Chris Fountain was second on the leaderboard with 27 out of 30.

Tennis player Greg Rusedski once again came in for criticism from the judges, despite getting his highest score of the series so far with 17 out of 30.

Judge Jason Gardiner said Rusedski's performance had been entertaining "for all the wrong reasons".

"Your jumps look like you were dodging bullets," he said.

After she was kicked out, Lusardi joked about a failed lift.

She told her partner: "Everyone has fallen so much this week and I just couldn't get hold of your trousers."
