Charlene Tilton Gets Boot From Dancing On Ice

Actress becomes fifth contestant to leave this year's show...

Former Dallas star Charlene Tilton has become the latest contestant to leave this year's Dancing On Ice.

The 53-year-old actress found herself in the skate-off on the ITV1 show for the third week running - but failed to win over the judges this week and they voted unanimously to save her rival Sam Nixon.

Both of them had reprised their performances for "pop week" to try to save their skins, but it was Charlene who became the fifth exit to get the boot after judges Louie Spence, Katarina Witt and Robin Cousins all voted for kids' TV presenter Sam.

After getting the bad news she said: "You know, I feel alright and I'll tell you why - I have had the most amazing experience... I have gotten to meet these amazing pro skaters, God love you, you take such good care of us."

And she couldn't resist paying tribute to mentors Torvill and Dean, adding: "I'm in the presence of greatness. You two always walk with such humility in the midst of your greatness."

Next weekend's show will be a Valentine's special.
