Loose Women star Denise Welch has become the eleventh contestant to leave ITV1's Dancing on Ice.
Welch finished in the bottom two alongside Johnson Beharry when viewers votes and judges scores were combined, despite her original score being doubled for winning the team challenge.
In a new twist, contestants performed a team skate, with the winners having their judges scored doubled.
Fifty-two-year-old Denise danced with fellow celebrities Jeff Brazier and Laura Hamilton, but her group skating performance failed to save her from elimination.
Following the skate-off, judges Emma Bunton, Jason Gardiner and Robin Cousins all chose to save army hero Beharry, who received his highest score of the series so far from the panel.
Welch thanked the public for their support throughout her time on the skating reality show and told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby:
"I never in a million years thought I would get to this stage. I'm knackered, I've had the most wonderful time... you haven't seen the last of me yet."
Dancing on Ice returns Sunday at 7.10pm on ITV1.
