Dancing on Ice – The ultimate showdown

Of ultimate destiny.

Now that is firmly planted in everybody’s head, I do apologise for my luck of Valentines Week *shudder* blog. I never got around to it. I understand it was a good show though and Rosemary and Mark waltzed off…

So tonight is the ULTIMATE SKILLS TEST which is basically, well, normal but with more padding than usual? The remaining nine will have to prove their skating ability for us tonight! And much to my despair, the show hasn’t actually got any shorter! 6.05 pm until 8.00pm?! Really now ITV. Also, TWO will leave us tonight! Exciting times!

Skills include: spinning, jumping, more spinning and more jumping.


Chico and Jodeyne Higgins – Mama do the hump skate. The worst song ever written.

Those facial expressions are weird maaaaaan. At least he can cope with the rhythm though- even if I can’t. He’s nailed the skills though – all of them one after the other too. Very steady and he is turning into quite a skater.

Judges scores = Louie 8, Robin 8, Katarina 8 – 24/30

Chemmy Alcott and Sean Rice – Hold On skate

Nearly fell at the start, can’t be good? Quite unsteady on her jumps to me and seemingly unsure of herself around the ice. However, she is getting better with each week and that is something we have to accept! And she is so brave.

Judges scores = Louie 7.5, Robin 7.5, Katarina 7 = 22/30

Jennifer Ellison and Dan Whiston – Candy man skate

I saw the accident on youtube, goodness gracious. Poor girl. Brave girl.

Complex start there and altogether a rather complicated routine for her. Lots of footwork, armwork and of course her skills which she executed perfectly. Plus she looks like she is having a ball!

Judges scores = Louie 7.5, Robin 6.5, Katarina 6 = 20/30

Andy Whyment and Vicky Ogden – Land of 1000 dances skate

This song is so him! Has that comical element to it. He almost looks like he is watching Vicky for reassurance that he isn’t going wrong. Which he isn’t, but this could be better. Quite unsteady and shaky wherever he is on his own but he still completed it! And somebody messed up the camera – can’t blame him for being bored.

Judges scores = Louie 7.5, Robin 6.5, Katarina 5.5 = 19.5/30

Sebastien Foucan and Brianne Delcourt – Omen skate

This has to be his song all over! Fast and furious!

Ouch, stumble. Crossing the ice at a very fast pace and without simple footwork as well which was excellent as so often one little stumble will throw you off! Very high octane! Very impressive ending.

Judges scores = Louie 8, Robin 7.5, Katarina 6.5 = 22/30

Jorgie Porter and Matt Evers – Louder skate

She is simply fantastic at this skating malarky! Perfect footwork, mastering the routines fast pace and a perfect HEADBANGER! KLAXON! I had my heart in my mouth! Brilliant! OUTSTANDING!

Judges scores = Louie 8.5, Robin 8.5, Katarina 8.5 = 25.5/30

Sam Nixon and Alexandra Schauman – Lightening skate

Met The Wanted. Didn’t actually know who they were.

I had him down as a bit of a fail of a contestant but he is actually producing some decent skating. Nice lines and actually steady movement which is starting to look rather good. Completed all of his required steps. Bit of a weird ending though?

Judges scores = Louie 7, Robin 6.5, Katarina 5.5 = 19/30

Heidi Range and Andrei Lipanov – Push the Button skate

Slutty Santa outfit.

Confident skate this week – sometimes we don’t always get that from her. Presented her moves well and really starting to like their partnership! Haven’t really much to say…

Judges scores = Louie 7, Robin 5.5, Katarina 5 = 17.5/30

Matthew Wolfenden and Nina Ulanova – Without You

His skill is really strong – probably one of the best throughout all the series’. Straigh out and into a lift just highlights his ability and their ability as a partnership. Complicated choreography and a good showcase of his fine skills. Really feel him in his skate as well.

Judges scores = Louie 9, Robin 9.5, Katarina 9.5 = 28/30

So the ultimate skills test is over! And 2 couples must go!

But we shall reconvene at either a later point tonight or next week!

Until then,

Natasha x
