Stephanie Waring said she felt proud of what she had achieved as she became the second celebrity to be voted off Dancing On Ice.

The Hollyoaks actress was eliminated after a skate-off against singer Lemar during Sunday night’s instalment of the ITV show.

After the two couples had skated for their place in the competition, judges Jason Gardiner, Ashley Banjo, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean had to choose who to save.

Gardiner and Banjo saved Waring, noting that Lemar had a stumble during his routine, but Dean saved the singer for the quality of his skating.

As this week’s head judge, Torvill cast the deciding vote and sent Waring home.

The actress looked tearful as she was given her marching orders, but said: “I have had the most amazing experience.

“I am really proud of myself, for what I’ve done.”

She thanked the show and her professional partner Sylvain Longchambon for his help.

Last week former Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown became the first celebrity to leave the programme.
