Joe Pasquale and his partner Vicky Ogden were the sixth skating couple to leave Dancing On Ice in week 6 after a skate-off with Keith Chegwin and Olga Sharutenko. It was probably time for Joe to go as he has been bottom of the judges scoring for many weeks now.
In the “Save Me” skate Joe skated first to I started a Joke by Robin Gibb and produced a reasonable but not spectacular performance. Keith danced to This Day by Elbow and showed that he has much more skating technique than Joe.
Karen Barber, Ashley Roberts, Jason Gardiner and Robin Cousins all voted to save Keith so it was farewell to Joe. The key was Keith’s better skating. We will miss Joe for his humour but it was time for him to go and he left graciously saying that he probably should have gone 5 weeks ago.
Earlier in the evening we had seen the remaining seven celebrities skate with the judges leaderboard looking like this:
- 30 Gareth Thomas
- 29.5 Beth Tweddle
- 28.5 Matt Lapinskas
- 24 Luke Campbell
- 22 Keith Chegwin
- 22 Samia Ghadie
- 18.5 Joe Pasquale
The judges were agreed that Gareth Thomas deserved his position at the top of the leaderboard. It looks like the final will be between Gareth Thomas, Beth Tweddle and Matt Lapinskas.
