Time to go: Corey Feldman and partner Brooke Castile find out they are leaving Dancing On Ice
While judges Robin Cousins and Louis Spence saved Tilton, Katrina Witt opted to Feldman because it was his 'best performance'.
After discovering he was leaving, Feldman said: 'Its been a lot of fun, a tremendous experience. I love London so any excuse.'
Instead of regular scoring, the celebrities were put together in pairs with other couples depending on their position on the leaderboard last week.

The winning couple out of each foursome would win immunity to go through to next week, while the others had to battle it out for the public vote.
Corey and Charlene ended up in the skate-off after four other couples received enough public votes.
Former X Factor contestant Chico
Slimani, 40, and TV presenter Sam Nixon, 25, were the first to go head-to-head
with their respective partners Jodeyne Higgins and Alexandra Schauman to Queen's Under Pressure.
Let battle commence: TV presenter Sam Nixon was up against Chico Slimani
Working out: Sam and Chico started their routine to Queen's Under Pressure by doing press ups
Although all the judges agreed Nixon had improved dramatically, they conceded Chico was the strongest skater.
Louis said: 'Sam, you're starting to show us some
elegance and grace. You're really coming on. The connection with your
'Chico you come out a little bit stronger. Lovely turns and nice
strong arms. Watch the steps in between.'
Yikes: Chico throws his partner Jodeyne Higgins in the air
Growing stronger every week: Although the judges conceded Sam had made an improvement, he wasn't as good as Chico
Robin added: 'Sam, your footwork was neat. Chico, there's such power and enthusiasm was contained.'
Second to perform was actress Jennifer Ellison, 28, and freerunner Sbastien Foucan, 37, with their partners Dan Whiston and Brianne Delcourt to The Black Eyed Peas' hit Just Can't Enough.
The judges singled out Ellison and Foucan for their very different strengths, but all agreed the Frenchman had the slight edge of her.

Tricky: Sebastien Foucan and Brianne Delcourt went for high drama with their moves
Katrina said: 'Jennifer you have beautiful lines and your
lifts are flawless. Your skating has improved, but I want you to get more
speed. Seb you are raw and free of spirit and you're not polished, but I like this. You smiled and you
did an entire corkscrew.'
Robin added: 'Jennifer you are glamorous and elegant and
always hit the perfect position in the lifts. The skating is really, really
improving. Seb, you are fun free and exciting, focused in all the right places.'
Before taking to the ice, it appeared Hollywood star Corey Feldman, 40, had a bit of tension with his professional American partner Brooke Castile.
Tension: Corey Feldman had refused to listen to professional skater Brooke Castile's instruction earlier in the week
The pair were seen disagreeing during rehearsals with Feldman wanting to do the choreography.
Castile was seen telling him: 'If we do it your way, we'll end up bottom of the leaderboard.
'We need to first learn the steps and then the music.'
At one point, Feldman complained she had 'negative energy' and stormed off the ice.
In hindsight, he admitted he was over-sensitive: 'I'm so sensitive and I get defensive. Things got tough on the ice today.'
Friendly rivalry: Chemmy and Corey played up to the head-to-head challenge
But it appeared they had resolved the issues by the live show when they went head-to-head with Chemmy Alcott and Sean Rice to Paula Abdul's song Opposites Attract.
Although ski racer Chemmy, 29, won immunity from the public vote, the judges agreed Corey had improved a lot after a shaky first two weeks.
Katrina told him: 'Corey I know its tough to come back.
This was your best performance. It was a big, big step in the right
Back on track: Corey Feldman and Brooke Castile did their stronger dance yet after a tense week
Building in confidence: Chemmy and Sean were back on top after a shaky week last week
'Chemmy, you need your physical strength and your energy and even did a full entire chair spin. Having your strong athletic skills made you good.'
Louis added: 'Corey there was more dance moves this week and it was great to see there out there on your own.
'Chemmy you are always a power house which I love and you gave me great straight legs in that lift.'
Next it was the battle of the blondes with Sugababe Heidi Range, 28, and partner Andrei Lipanov Vs Dallas star Charlene Tilton, 53, and Matthew Gonzalez dancing to Islands In The Stream.
Safe: Having been in the skate-off in the first week, Heidi Range was thrilled to win immunity
A little safe Charlene and partner Matthew were told the actress could have been pushed a little more
Robin admitted: 'It’s a difficult one. Heidi you really
pushed yourself this week with the skating.
'Charlene you ingratiate
yourself every time you step onto the ice but I would like to see you
push as much as Matthew is pushing you around the ice.'
Louis thought Charlene was 'a little safe' and saved Heidi for immunity: 'Heidi you really pushed yourself and you
realised you had competition on the ice this week. For that reason I am
giving immunity to Heidi.'
Heating things up were soap stars Jorgie Porter, 24, and Matthew Wolfendon, 31, – arguably the strongest celebrity skaters in the competition – with their raunchy outfits.
Hell for leather: Jorgie left little to the imagination in her leather, PVC and lycra outfit
Hold tight: Jorgie sent her head spinning when she was spun around in the air by Matt
Ready for battle: The two couple contrasted in silver and black outfits
The pair and their professional partners Matt Evers and Nina Ulalova skated to Madonna and Justin Timberlake's song 4 Minutes.
Louis was torn: 'This is so hard, you were both phenomenal. Jorgie the way you move is fabulous but Matt what people don’t realise is the support you have to give your partner. It was down to the connection between each other and the person I am saving is Matt.'
Katrina added: 'That was incredible, you guys managed a complicated choreography. Jorgie you are usually magical and cute, but now you're so sexy and that was so cool. I am awarding immunity to Jorgie.'
2-1: Andy only got one vote, while Rosemary received two, receiving immunity
Last to perform was fitness guru Rosemary Conley, 65, and Mark Hanretty Vs Coronation Street star Andy Whyment, 30, and Vicky Ogden to Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews' cover of Baby It's Cold Outside.
Although Louis saved Andy because he 'challenged himself', the other two judges opted for Rosemary.
Robin said: 'Andy you said you were tense and nervous and that did show but you were skating and I loved it. Rosemary, elegant. The person I give immunity to is Rosemary.'
