Gareth Thomas Eliminated From DOI Semi Finals
Flying routine proves too much for rugby star...
Dancing On Ice, after sickness forced him to withdraw from the semi final.
This week's flying challenge saw the hopefuls strapped into harnesses to swoop and soar above the ice – and it proved too much for some.
Gareth looked decidedly green after his first performance - and footage showed him frequently vomiting throughout rehearsals that week.
Once back on firm ground the rugby star was assessed by the medical team, who decided that he would not be able to perform again that evening due to severe motion sickness.
That meant Beth Tweddle, Matt Lapinskas and Luke Campbell went through unchallenged.
One contestant had no trouble flying - former EastEnders star Matt, who soared to the top of the leaderboard after scoring three 10s from the judges.
Matt, Beth and Luke will battle it out in the final next Sunday (10 March) from 7pm on ITV.
