Dr Hilary loses out in tense skate-off

Dr Hilary Jones failed to find a cure for his limited skating skills as he was voted out of Dancing On Ice.

The GMTV medic (56) went up against Coronation Street actor Danny Young in the skate-off after the public support was added to judges scores in the Valentine's Day edition of the ITV1 show.

But the final decision rested with the panel of experts, who opted to save Jones' younger rival after watching the two celebrities perform for a second time.

Dressed in a glittery white shirt, Jones -- who performed a routine to Higher Love for the romance-themed evening -- said he had enjoyed himself but predicted his run on the programme was at an end.

Actress Hayley Tamaddon finished top of the table after a routine to Endless Love. She received 26 points from the judges -- the highest score so far in this series.
