David Seaman and Gary Lucy have been booted off 'Dancing on Ice'.
The retired footballer and his professional skating partner Frankie Poultney, who he is engaged to, were sent crashing out of the competition last night (12.01.14) after receiving the lowest public vote, and the 50-year-old star jokingly hit out at fans of Tottenham Hotspur, his old club Arsenal's biggest rivals.
He quipped: "I reckon it must have been all Spurs fans out there voting."
'EastEnders' star Gary - who portrays Danny Pennant in the BBC One soap - and his partner Katie Stainsby left the ITV show after losing a skate-off against Sam Attwater and his partner Vicky Ogden, who is also his wife-to-be.
Judges Karen Barber, Ashley Roberts and Jason Gardiner all opted to save Sam and Vicky meaning Robin Cousins' verdict was not required, but he admitted he would have gone the same way as his fellow panellists.
Karen said: "What a fantastic skate off, but one must stay and that is Sam."
Jason added: "Sam, you came out and nailed it. Tonight I am saving Sam."
Despite being a 50/1 outsider to win the competition, Gary was devastated at losing his place on the show.
He said: "Obviously I am disappointed. It is a fantastic show and a great thing to be part of."
Todd Carty progressed to the next round despite being a 100/1 outsider to win the show with bookmakers Paddy Power, who have priced singer Ray Quinn as 10/11 odds-on favourite with former 'Emmerdale' actress Suzanne Shaw 4/1 second favourite.
A Paddy Power spokesperson said: "Following her performance and top scores on Sunday night, Suzanne looks sure to push Ray Quinn all the way for the win."
