Dancing On Ice 2012: Mark Rhodes is given his marching orders, as co-presenter Sam Nixon skates on

End of the Rhodes! Mark is given his marching orders on Dancing On Ice, as his co-presenter Sam Nixon skates on

Sam Nixon will be rubbing his hands with glee, as Mark Rhodes was voted of Dancing On Ice.

The pair co-host children's television together under the guise of Sam & Mark, but things turned icy on the rink when they were forced to compete against each other in this year's series.

Mark, 30, became the latest casualty after Andy Akinwolere and Laila Morse, with Charlene Tilton being saved thanks to her 'Oscar-winning' performance to Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend.

Robin Cousins was the first to save the Dallas actress, as did fellow panellists Louie Spence and Katarina Witt – with all three judges praising Mark, but saying his skills were lacking.

The former Pop Idol star, who danced with Frankie Poultney to Everybody Needs Somebody To Love from The Blue Brothers, said: 'Charlene skated brilliantly and I messed up. I'm absolutely fine with it.'

During his 'best bits' montage, there was a flashback to a pre-recorded interview, with Mark joking: 'If Sam stays longer than me, I will never live it down.'

Moment of truth: From the hint of a smile on Mark' face, it seems he was aware of his fate before it was sealed

It was so complete, I don't know where we're going to go with you'

Robin applauded Matthew, saying if they cut off the camera view above
the knee, no one would tell which feet belonged to the celebrity and
which to the
professional.

style which I enjoy.'

Flirtatious
Louie quipped, 'Tom Cruise who I've certainly got a loving feeling!'
while Robin said: 'You command the ice with such confidence, but there's
not an arrogant bone in your body to go with that.'

Skier Chemmy
Alcott looked ready to burst into tears as she and Sean Rice earned
10.5 for Rescue Me, a significant drop from her previous score of 16.

The
pair failed to complete a lift and Katarina blamed it on the blonde
beauty's size, saying: 'I am begging you not to do those lifts, you are a
pretty big
woman, you are the hurricane.

'This is really dangerous (if someone falls)… but I can tell how much you enjoy to
skate.'

Chemmy said: 'I knew it was going to be a challenge and I hope
people respect me for trying something that I didn't feel confident
doing.'

Heidi Range
looked like a different skater from her first performance, improving
drastically with Andrei Lipanov to give an exciting skate to Goldfinger
from James Bond.

Having
originally been given 12.5, she upped the ante to get 15.5, saying:
'I'm really pleased. I'm a shy person, I'm fine doing
videos and turning it on for the cameras, but it's different
on blades.'

Also flying the flag for the ladies was Jennifer Ellison, who danced with Daniel Whiston.

having to change the choreography moves as late as the dress rehearsal.

She looked pained after her routing, saying: 'My back is in total spasm, I literally can't lift my arm up.'

But Louie enjoyed the execution, saying: 'I was loving it! It was a good, emotional piece.'

And Katarina
joked that Jennifer's painful expression actually worked to her
advantage, as it contributed to the intensity of the performance.

Charlene and Matthew Gonzalez didn't appear to be likely contenders for the bottom two as the pint-sized actress embodied the character of Marilyn Monroe in Gentleman Prefer Blondes perfectly.

After gaining a two point advantage from last week's 13, Christopher revealed she asks for lifts but when she is given them, she gets scared and backtracks, so they meet 'somewhere in the middle'.

Sam and Alexandra Schauman danced to Kung Fu Fighting – which has

Hour 3.

The children's television presenter fell to the floor with joy at the end,
punching the air after successfully executing the final

dangerous Kung Fu fighter, you remind me more of a cuddly panda.'

Robin said that the fact the backflip came at the end, meant he spent
the entire routine worrying about it, but praised him for his 'natural
ability'.

His buddy Mark and Frankie earned their stripes by getting 10.5 instead of 8 last week.

He said: 'I'm happy! You have to get better in this competition and I couldn't have started any lower!'

But Katarina asked why he even had skates on, saying he barely covered the surface of the ice.
