Pamela Anderson and her partner Matt Evers were the first skating couple to leave Dancing On Ice in week 1 after a skate-off with Keith Chegwin and his partner Olga Sharutenko. The skate-off format changed this year with the celebrities skating a brand new “skate-off” routine rather than repeating their main routine. Keith Chegwin chose the theme from the Omen for his skate-off performance. Pamela Anderson chose Elton John’s Sacrifice.
Pamela looked nervous and had a wardrobe malfunction and a few wobbles whilst Keith put in a solid and safe performance.
Karen Barber, Ashley Roberts, Jason Gardiner and Robin Cousins all voted to save Keith so it was farewell to Pamela Anderson.
It was relief for Keith Chegwin to survive week 1 after having to drop out of last year’s series due to injury.
Earlier in the evening we had seen some impressive skating performances from all the celebrities with the judges leaderboard looking like this:
- Matt Lapinskas 24
- Beth Tweddle 21
- Pamela Anderson 18.5
- Samia Ghadie 17.5
- Shayne Ward 16.0
- Keith Chegwin 15.5
