Rosemary Conley became the latest star to leave 'Dancing On Ice' last night (12.02.12).
The diet and fitness guru - who landed in the bottom two alongside Chemmy Alcott - was given the boot after judges Louie Spence, Katarina Witt and Robin Cousins voted unanimously to keep the skiing champion in the ITV1 celebrity skating competition.
Wearing a frilly fuchsia dress, the 64-year-old star - who is the oldest ever competitor to reach this stage of the show - failed to impress with her Valentine's Day themed routine of The Pretenders' 'I'll Stand By You'.
However, she praised Chemmy as "brilliant" and admitted she has "loved" every minute of her 'Dancing On Ice' journey.
Rosemary told host Phillip Schofield: "I absolutely loved it. We reached the point when everyone is raising their game. I probably can't do it like the others can. Chemmy is brilliant and deserves to go through."
Turning to her professional skating partner Mark Hanretty, she added: "Thank you for being the best coach and the nicest person God put on this earth."
However, the drama didn't stop there, as last night's show also saw actress Jennifer Ellison suffer a dramatic blow to her head from the blade of her skate during a daring 'Scorpion Kick' move.
Despite having to receive medical attention for the ailment, the blonde beauty bravely continued with her routine.
Show mentor Jayne Torvill said: "The adrenaline tonight went a bit too far. It shows you how dangerous ice dancing is."
But Jennifer's skating partner Dan Whiston reassured the audience, saying: "She is going to be OK. It was a very scary moment. When I put her down her whole hair was just red."
Next week's episode of 'Dancing On Ice' will see two celebrities eliminated from the competition.
