'Comedy' Dave Vitty was voted off 'Dancing on Ice' last night (13.02.11) after losing the skate off to Kerry Katona
'Comedy' Dave Vitty was "gutted" to be voted off 'Dancing on Ice' last night (13.02.11), despite receiving his highest score to date in the competition with 12.5.
The DJ - who is BBC Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles' sidekick - and professional skater Frankie Poultney lost in the skate off to Kerry Katona and her partner Daniel Whiston after receiving only one out of a possible three votes from the judges.
Dave said: "I'm gutted, but I know I'm not one of the best skaters in the competition. Being on 'Dancing on Ice' has been an absolute privilege. Frankie has been the best partner I could have hoped for."
Head coach Karen Barber paid tribute to Dave's dedication to the show - though she admitted he wasn't ever going to be the best performer.
She said: "He does put his heart and soul into it, but he does struggle with any co-ordination."
Speaking on their breakfast show this morning (14.02.11) Chris insisted he will no longer watch now his pal has been voted off.
He said: "There is no point watching it anymore to be honest."
Kerry - who was bottom of the leaderboard - admitted before the dance off that she wasn't surprised to find herself there.
She explained: "The judges are absolutely right I'm nowhere near as good as that lot. But I am really enjoying myself and I have to say thank you to the public for getting me a far as I have."
Sam Attwater and Brianne Delcourt topped the leader board again alongside Laura Hamilton and Colin Ratushniak.
