TV presenter Michael Underwood has become the latest contestant to be voted off ITV's Dancing on Ice.

Underwood was appearing on his second series of the show, having been forced to retire from the last run after breaking his leg.

The GMTV presenter left this series after a skate-off with former glamour model Melinda Messenger.

More than 9.5m people tuned into watch the celebrities' routines, while 7.7m watched the later results show.

Leaving the show, Underwood said: "I had a brilliant time. It was great to come back and skate with [partner] Mel again. We had a good laugh."

Former X Factor runner-up Ray Quinn continued to impress the judging panel, once again notching up the highest score of the night.
