Elen Rivas and Craig McLachlan were voted off 'Dancing On Ice' last night (16.01.11).
The Spanish model and the former 'Neighbours' star found themselves in the bottom three alongside 'Hollyoaks' actress Jennifer Metcalfe after failing to impress viewers of the ITV1 show, meaning the trio all had to skate again for survival.
While Jennifer was given a second chance by the public and will now compete when the real competition begins next Sunday (23.01.11), Elen and Craig were sent home.
Before she was eliminated, Elen - who has two daughters with ex footballer fiance Frank Lampard and is now dating Peter Andre - said: "This experience is amazing, I'm learning a new skill and my partner Lukasz is amazing. I don't want to be leaving this week.
"If I do well in this competition, my little girls will be so proud of their mummy. If I go out now I'll be totally devastated - I think I'll cry."
Craig - who was partnered with Maria Filippov - said of his exit: "I've had the best time with this bunch and this woman, Maria, is my absolute treasure."
Jennifer is joined in the final 12 by Radio 1 DJ Comedy Dave Vitty, former 'EastEnders' star Sam Attwater, cricketer Dominic Cork, model Chloe Madeley and 'Loose Women' star Denise Welch.
Kerry Katona, Steven Arnold, Laura Hamilton, Johnson Beharry, Vanilla Ice and Jeff Brazier all made the final line-up last week.
