Holby City star Jeremy Sheffield was the third celebrity to be voted off Dancing on Ice after a skate-off with Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies.

"I'm disappointed obviously but I'm ever so slightly relieved that I'm not going to be in so much pain," said former ballet dancer Sheffield, 43.

Judge Jason Gardiner said: "Considering he's a dancer, or used to be, it looks like he's never danced."

Actress Hayley Tamaddon got the highest score on her 33rd birthday.

Sheffield lost out after the public vote put him in the bottom two and into in a skate-off with Davies.

The five judges unanimously voted him off the show.

Wobbly performance

But his first performance did not get the lowest score of the night from the judges - that honour went to GMTV's Dr Hilary Jones. After stumbling on the ice, he scored 7.5 out of 30.

Dr Jones fell during rehearsals and said: "It was a reasonable blow and it just knocks your confidence."

The remaining celebrities in the competition are actress Emily Atack, actor Kieron Richardson, Gordon Ramsay's wife Tana Ramsay, actor Danny Young, charity campaigner Heather Mills, actor Gary Lucy, Boyzone member Mikey Graham, actress Daniella Westbrook and former Emmerdale actress Hayley Tamaddon.
