Vicky and Sam make it to semi's


Posted: 3rd March 2014

With the final just around the corner, none of the celebrities wanted to leave Dancing On Ice at this crucial stage. However, unfortunately somebody has to go and for Vicky Ogden and Sam Attwater it was there time.

The former EastEnders actor faced the dreaded Skate Off with Ray Quinn for a place in the final and failed to impress the DOI judges enough to remain in the competition. Sam and his fiancee and professional skating partner, Vicky Ogden skated their socks off to Flo Rida and David Guetta's, Club Can't Handle Me.

They were both clearly happy with his Skate Off performance as Sam told host Phillip Schofield: "it's the best skate we've done since day one. We couldn't do any better than that."

It isn't the first time the pair have been in the bottom two, with Sunday's Skate Off being his fifth in the series.

However, despite the incredible performances from both celebs, all of the judges opted to save favourite-to-win, Ray. The judges were clear that they didn't believe either Ray or Sam should have been in this position.

Jason Gardiner, who had previously stated his final three would be Hayley Tamaddon, Ray Quinn and Sam Attwater, added: "Neither of you should be here. I don't want to send either of you home."

Former ice dancer, Karen Barber also noted that the pair were: "both champions in my eyes."

Although disappointed, Sam and Vicky remained upbeat as Sam said: "Listen, I've done five skate-offs so it's my time to go. I feel like the winner and I have something more than a trophy."

Well done Vicky and Sam, what a great journey, you have done ISS proud!
