Dancing On Ice: Samia takes the strain

In a high standard props episode, it was Samia and Sylvain who lost out in the Save Me Skate Off to Luke and Jenna.

Suffering a groin strain, the result of this week's training, Samia was unable to overhaul Luke, but put in a brave performance to go out on a high. Both their props were tied in directly to their occupations: Sylvia with the chair on wheels and Luenna with a skipping rope, which gave them both the confidence to go for it.

Highlight of the night was Chris and Jayne accompanying Jools Holland and his R&B band, with Rumer on vocals, for the wonderful Accentuate the Positive, although Mattianne also put in a very groovy performance, attacking the three different hats with gusto. 

Bethan and Garbin were also given props to remind them of their former lives, Bethan skating elegantly with a hula hoop and Garbin handling a rugby ball with dexterity - theirs was the most accomplished use of the prop, seamless and beautiful.

All the judges were full of praise, although Jason admitted he was ready to come out all guns blazing following the "shambolic" rehearsals.

The Ice Panel scored as followed: Mattianne 36; Garbin 34.5; Bethan 30; Luenna 30; Sylvia 28.

Next week, they're flying!
