Keith Chegwin was stunned when the 'Dancing on Ice' judges voted to save him over Pamela Anderson.
The veteran TV presenter found himself in the dreaded skate-off alongside the former 'Baywatch' babe in the first episode of this year's show and admitted he thought he would go because Pamela is such a huge star.
He said: "On the night I thought if Pamela skated well then people would go for her.
"But to my surprise the judges were just judging us on our skating ability. They didn't care that it was Cheggers in his Lycra or Pamela Anderson falling out of hers.
"I was sad to see her go but it's a competition. It's about the skating."
Keith also paid tribute to his professional partner Olga Sharutenko and says he wouldn't be able to do the show without her because she pushes him so much.
He told The Sun newspaper: "My partner Olga is very tough on me. I call her the Gremlin from the Kremlin. She's like an Olympian.
"She's so dedicated to making sure I look my best."
