Steven Arnold became the fifth celebrity to be voted off 'Dancing On Ice' last night (23.01.11).
The former 'Coronation Street' actor - who was partnered alongside professional skater Nina Ulanova - lost out in the ITV1 show's skate-off to cricket champion Dominic Cork, after being branded a "natural disaster" by sharp-tongued judge Jason Gardiner.
Steven said: "It's all a blur when you're out there but I've really enjoyed it. I'm not a natural skater but I put my heart and soul into it."
After scoring just seven points from the judging panel - Emma Bunton, Jason Gardiner and Robin Cousins - and landing in bottom place on the leaderboard, the 36-year-old actor's performance was likened to that of a drunk at a seaside resort.
Jason said: "You're a natural disaster. It's like watching someone who's had one too many at a tacky awful seaside resort."
However, Steven wasn't the only contestant to suffer a setback in the competition, with 'Hollyoaks' actress Jennifer Metcalfe - who narrowly escaped elimination from the show last week - slashing her leg open with a skate during a training session.
After being rushed to hospital for emergency stitches, the brunette beauty explained her injury didn't put her off her routine.
She said: "It couldn't have come at a worse time but I tried not to let it put me off my performance. I've forgotten about it now."
Meanwhile, Kerry Katona scored 14 out of a possible 30 points from the judges after taking her mind off her routine when she feared she had suffered a wardrobe malfunction live on TV.
Her partner Dan Whiston explained: "Kerry was worried her boobs had fallen out - I think it took her mind off the skating."
'EastEnders' actor Sam Attwater was top of the leaderboard with a score of 25.
