Former EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook has been voted out of ITV1's Dancing on Ice, missing the chance to appear in next week's final.

The 36-year-old went up against actor Gary Lucy in the dance-off but the judges chose to save The Bill star by three votes to two.

After hearing the verdict, Westbrook said: "To come this far is amazing, it's been an absolute journey."

Lucy now joins actors Hayley Tamaddon and Kieron Richardson in the final.

Lucy, speaking after his performance, said: "I'm just so relieved, I didn't trip, I didn't drop [skating partner] Maria, I didn't take the cameraman out. It went well, it was great."

Former Emmerdale star Tamaddon - who is the favourite to win the skating contest - had the evening's highest score with 27.5 out of 30 as they skated to Bette Midler hit In My Life.

Head judge Robin Cousins said: "It was nice and serene and controlled. You had everything right tonight for me. Very nicely done."
