Elen Rivas thinks a video showing her berating mentor Christopher Dean for not giving her a difficult enough skating routine was the reason behind 'Dancing On Ice' elimination last night (16.01.11)
Elen Rivas thinks she was stitched up to appear bossy on 'Dancing On Ice'.
The 35-year-old former WAG - who was voted off the ITV1 show last night (16.01.11) alongside Australian actor Craig McLachlan - claimed she was a "joking" in a video clip which showed her berating mentor Christopher Dean for not giving her a difficult enough skating routine.
While the Spanish model explained she was just displaying her fiery sense of humour to the Olympic champion, she admitted it could be misinterpreted as bossiness.
She said: "In my videotape, all the people backstage who know me thought that was so funny but for people who don't know me, they might think, 'Ohhh!'
"I didn't mean it badly, I was just joking all the time. I've got a sense of humour and not everyone gets that."
Elen - who has two children, Luna, five, and three-year old Isla with ex-fiance Frank Lampard and is currently dating Peter Andre - also thinks the slow routine didn't give her sufficient opportunity to demonstrate her abilities on the ice.
Speaking to ITV1's 'This Morning', she added: "I was devastated. I didn't want to go, I wanted to stay there, I had so much fun with everyone. I think it's just the public vote, it's just what happens. But I am going to continue skating.
"I can do many more things than that obviously but it was a slow piece."
