Jason who was full of positivity last night told the couple "That's what I call reaching for the stars" while Jayne Torvill concurred with "The skating's got so much better."

Gemma and Matt returned with an "Evil Queen" styled performance to Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" after Gemma's fall on the ice last week.

Sixth to take to the Ice was Jane and Sylvain, who was also struggling with her confidence after fainting during rehearsals. But the couple, who danced to Queen's "A Kind Of Magic," earnt themselves 23.5/40 and received positive comments from the Judges.

Ryan and Brandee returned this week after being unable to dance last week due to injury and earnt themselves a 22.5/40, their highest score of the series so far. The couple danced to "Giant" by Calvin Harris and Rag'n'Bone Man but received negative comments from the Judges "What I'm not seeing is consistency" Jason told them while Ashley told Ryan "The injury is still holding you back."

Last to take to the ice were James and Alexandra who performed a ballet styled dance to "Sleeping Beauty" themed and danced to an instrumental version "Once Upon A Dream." and jumped to the top of the leader board with a 36.5/40. Jayne Torvill told the couple "It was like watching two professionals" while Jason who gave them a 9.5 called the dance "Sublime."

Second Skate Off

Sair and Mark faced they "Skate Off" once again since their first head to head against Richard and Carlotta in "Musicals Week." Last night the pair faced off against Ryan and Brandee who skated for the first time after being medically exempt from last week's show due to a torn muscle in Ryan's groin.

Once again the "Ice Panel" voted unanimously and decided to send Saira and Mark home after yet another week of relying heavily on her Professional Partner to hold her up, rather than showing off her solo skating skills like the rest of the Celebrities in the competition.
