English ski jumper and Olympian, 60, and his professional skating partner Vicky Ogden found himself in the skate-off against former Love Island star Amber Davies and her pro partner Simon Proulx-Senecal.

After Eddie and Vicky performed a graceful routine to Sir Elton John’s Rocket Man, and Amber and her partner Simon danced a dramatic performance to Little Mix’s Power, the judges cast their vote.

Judge Oti Mabuse voted to keep Eddie while guest judge Johnny Weir and Jayne Torvill voted for Amber.

As the vote was split, it came down to head judge Christopher Dean, who opted to keep Amber as well, sending Eddie packing.

Sunday’s show saw the contestants up their game in the hope of making it to the semi-final next week, with a number of performers claiming the highest score title throughout the night until Adele Roberts came out on top at the end.

Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards – who recently spoke about living in his car and eating from bins while competing in the Olympics – opened this week’s Dancing On Ice by embracing his inner pop star as he skated to One Direction’s hit What Makes You Beautiful.

Dressed in a black and red checked shirt, the former Olympic ski jumper performed a rotating knee slide and twirls with his partner Vicky to secure a score of 33.5 – his highest of the series.

Judge Oti Mabuse thought it was a ‘brilliant’ way to open the show as she felt it was ‘entertaining’.

Fellow judge Christopher Dean said: ‘I’m loving what you’re doing, I hope to see you in the semi-final.’

Adele surpassed her fellow Dancing On Ice contestants at the eleventh hour to secure the top score of the show so far.

After a night of top marks, radio DJ Adele, 44, received 39 out of 40 points for her elegant routine with her partner Mark Hanretty to You’re My World by Jane McDonald.

She became emotional after getting the score as Mark praised her as an ‘incredible’ woman.

The former Big Brother housemate previously said she decided to compete the ITV show because she has her ‘life back’ after undergoing treatment for bowel cancer and announcing in June 2022 that she was cancer-free.

Judge Christopher said the routine had ‘everything I want to see in a performance’ including ‘passion’ and ‘connection’ between the pair.

Guest judge Johnny said the performance had a ‘beguiling quality’ to it as he praised Adele as the ‘strongest skater in this contest’ in relation to her basic ability.

Olympian Greg Rutherford and Love Island star Amber Davies both scored the joint highest score of the series so far, before they were later overtaken by Adele.

Guest judge Johnny said he rewarded the routine a perfect 10 as he felt they were ‘attacking the ice’ while taking ‘difficult elements’.

Amber – who recently scored a role in Coronation Street – attempted the first one-arm rotating layout of the show to secure her top mark.

For her routine with her skating partner Simon Senecal to Waterloo by Abba, they donned 70s-inspired outfits.

Johnny said he ‘loved it’ as he felt it was ‘electric and exuberant’.

Soap star Ryan Thomas performed in nothing but a pair of gold sparkling swimming shorts and his skates as he took to the ice, flaunting his toned torso.

The actor, 39 – who fell twice during a recent episode of the contest – skated to Wham! hit Club Tropicana with his partner Amani Fancy.

They performed a series of challenging lifts, including one which saw Amami flip over Ryan’s shoulders backwards, which secured them a score of 35.5 – their highest of the series.

Judge Oti complimented it as ‘fun and cheeky’ while Christopher praised former Coronation Street star Ryan for attempting rotational lifts, which he said a lot of other male contestants were not attempting.

Made In Chelsea star Miles Nazaire impressed the judges, landing a 37.5 mark after performing a number of dramatic lifts.

One which saw him spin his partner Vanessa Bauer while just holding her hand and ankle, to Genie In A Bottle by Christina Aguilera.
