Dancing On Ice’s Carley Stenson became the sixth star to be voted off on Sunday night following a tough skate-off against Siva Kaneswaran.

The former Hollyoaks actress, 40, lost her place in the competition after all four judges opted to save The Wanted singer, 34 – with the vote coming after fans had previously complained that she was ‘overmarked’ in her first performance.

Meanwhile, it was a doubly difficult night for Carley as following her skate-off routine, she revealed that her shoulder had ‘popped out’, prompting host Holly Willoughby to reassure her that she’ll get medical assistance soon. 

After the skate-off result was revealed, Carley broke down in tears as she spoke to hosts Holly and Phillip Schofield.

She said of her time on the show: ‘It just got harder. I’m gonna miss this man [Mark Hanretty]. I’ve really enjoyed it, this is all a bit of a blur actually.’

Giving their verdict following both Carly and Mark and Siva and Klabera Komini’s second skates of the night, it was clear that the boyband star had the edge.

Ashley Banjo remarked: ‘What a skate-off! For me, it is about the skate-off, it is about the drama, it is about the executive and how you hold it together and I think [Siva and Klabera] had a stronger week.

While Oti Mabuse remarked that while Carley’s routine had been ‘intricate and difficult’, Siva’s was ‘easy but perfectly executed.’

Sealing Carley’s fate, Christopher Dean said: ‘The skate-off is about the do or die and tonight, there were some mistakes’, before voting to save Siva and Klabera.

While Head Judge Jayne Torvill was in agreement, adding: ‘I would agree with my fellow judges, it was all about tonight’s skate-off and that is what we have to judge.’

Mollie Gallagher got things off to a flying start on Sunday night as she bagged her highest ever score during Props Week.

The Coronation Street star, 25, and her pro partner Sylvain Longchambon pulled off a fantastic airport themed routine to Come Fly With Me by Frank Sinatra, with the actress donning a lilac air hostess ensemble.

And Mollie and Sylvain left the judges and audience in awe as they tackled a ‘never been done before’ lift with their airport trolley prop.

The soap siren oozed confidence as she glided across the ice during the performance, with culminated in a daring trolley float in which the commentator remarked had never been attempted on the show before. 

And the judges were clearly impressed as they awarded her an impressive 33 points out of 40, her biggest score so far.

Commenting on the skate, Christopher Dean was quick to note that her confidence showed, remarking that she did what they asked and joked she’d now hit ‘cruising altitude’. 

Meanwhile, Oti Mabuse said that Mollie ‘felt at home on ice’, before declaring her lift was ‘absolutely incredible’.

While Ashley Banjo commented that it was her ‘most confident and solid skate to date.’ 

Up next, Carley Stenson and Mark Hanretty pulled off a very racy performance to Beyonce’s track Fever using their prop – a feather boa. 

The former Hollyoaks actress sizzled in a semi-sheer black dress as she showcased her moves on the ice.

In the VT it was revealed that Carley had trained for much of the week with a different partner as Mark was ill – but the duo showed no signs of disruption in their routine and went on to bag 34.5 points.

Oti commented on how ‘sultry’ the skate was, gushing that it was ‘so classy, so beautiful’, while Jayne commented that they commanded the routine so well considering Mark was off sick.

While Chris heaped praise on the ‘really ambitious number’.

Also scoring well this week was The Vivienne and Colin Grafton, who paid homage to her Drag Race roots by dancing with a checkered flag to Pump It by The Black Eyed Peas.

And their routine certainly gained the approval of Diversity’s Ashley, who said the routine was: ‘Immaculately performed, Immaculately skated.’

Meanwhile, Jayne commented that she liked their use of speed on the ice and their incorporation of new lifts, however, she marked them down as they’d made a ‘mistake” at the end. 

The duo went on to score a credible 35.5 points out of 40. 

Elsewhere, like Mollie, Nile Wilson and partner Olivia Smart bagged their highest score of the series thanks to their stunning routine to Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis.

The duo incorporated a double bed into their performance, with the Olympic gymnast showing off some of his moves during the romantic skate.

The couple also skated a lot of the dance without the bed, with the judges clearly loving their work as they scored a whopping 37.5 points – the highest of the series.

Oti gushed that she ‘loved every single moment’ and that they told their story so ‘effortlessly’, while Chris shared that the ‘quality, story, everything came together.’

Joey Essex was another star who earned their highest score so far, with the former TOWIE favourite coming in second on the leaderboard with 36.5 points.

The reality star and pro partner Vanessa Bauer wowed with their surfing themed routine, with Joey expertly using his surfboard prop during the performance. 

Elsewhere, the pressure is well and truly on for the remaining Dancing On Ice contestants as they have suffered a series of falls during rehearsals this week.

Stars including Carley Stenson, Nile Wilson and Mollie Gallagher have all sustained falls on the ice as they gear up for Sunday night’s show.

While no one has suffered any injuries that would force them to pull out of the show, a source told MailOnline they are all feeling the pressure to turn out a solid performance with the semi-final drawing nearer.

The insider said: ‘There have been lots of falls this week for the celebs. There haven’t been any serious injuries, just a few bumps but the pressure is really ramping up as everyone gets closer to the semi-final and final. 

‘Everyone is determined to give their best performance.’

Doctors star Carley winced in pain as she went down face forward on the rink with her partner Mark Hanretty falling with her. 

In one snap from rehearsals, Nile could be seen lying on his back as his professional skating partner Olivia Smart rushed over to check if he was OK.

Meanwhile, Coronation Street star Mollie had to be rescued by her skating partner Sylvain Longchambon after she took a tumble.

Comedian Darren Harriott and his partner Tippy Packard were the most recent pair eliminated on last week’s show.
