She reached the halfway stage of the competition by serving a Buckz Fizz throwback, dancing to an ABBA classic and getting Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” from the judges.

But Sunday proved once more that all good things must come to an end as Cheryl Baker became the fourth celebrity to be eliminated from this year’s Dancing on Ice with her dancing partner Dan Whiston.

Dancing to the Billy Joel single “She’s Always a Woman”, Cheryl continued to improve on her ice-skating and was praised by all four judges.

“I saw you do a 3-turn, I saw you standing on one foot. It was the emotion that brought you tonight, it was beautiful. And you didn’t lip sync, you let the skating talk for you tonight,” said Christopher Dean.

Jason and Ashley each gave a 4.5 alongside a 5.0 from both Jayne and Christopher, giving Cheryl a personal best of 19.0. Sadly, this wasn’t enough as Cheryl and Dan found themselves in the skate off with Donna Air after the public vote.

And after dancing to the Elton John and Kiki single “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” in the skate off, the judges broke Cheryl’s heart as Jason, Ashley and Christopher all chose to save Donna. Jayne — with the casting vote in the event of a tie — would’ve made it a clean sweep with Donna.

Slight correction: it was on for years, was basically cancelled, then revived this year for some reason.

I don’t get why this is a thing. The UK seem to have very inventive ideas for their celebrity reality shows (I recall also hearing about celebrity diving and conducting) that I can’t fathom anybody actually caring about watching.

I don’t remember a conducting one, but the diving one was the show with Tom Daley teaching celebrities to dive, and it was awful. The common factor in most of these shows is the broadcaster, ITV, who have more money than sense.

It was because I was watching the BBC Comedy Proms (pretty much just for Tim Minchin) and this female comedian was about to conduct. This puppet fox character (looked like a Muppet, but it wasn’t) remarked that she had won a celebrity conducting show against the rapper Goldie. So there’s that. Maybe it was just a joke? She was a great conductor as it turned out.

Also, on that celebrity diving show was none other than former Eurovision contestant Jade Ewen! So they’ve got that going for them.
