Coronation Street's Andy Whyment is the latest famous face to be frozen out of Dancing on Ice.

The actor, who plays Kirk Sutherland, is heading back to Weatherfield's cobbles after losing out in a skate-off against professional skier Chemmy Alcott.

The 30-year-old said he knew it would be his last dance so he wanted to enjoy it, and Whyment took to the ice in head-to-toe white with his partner Vicky Ogden.

Whyment and Alcott were both left in the bottom two after they received low scores from the three panel judges and failed to impress the public.

The Corrie star thanked his wife, the Corrie producers for letting him do the show and said: "I have had an amazing time."

He took to the ice for a final time in a routine set to Elvis Presley's Suspicious Minds, but the judges were unanimous in their decision to save Alcott.

Louie Spence said the 29-year-old athlete had "a little bit more" while fellow judge Robin Cousins added that although Whyment had put "gusto" into his performance, it was not enough.

X Factor flop Chico was one skating star who did impress the judges with his topless dance to LMFAO's Sexy and I Know It.

Trainers Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean said the levels of performance are increasing week after week and Torvill added that she was glad not to be a judge.

Spence was in agreement and said: "Each week the performances keep getting better and better, just that extra little bit of magic we need to see to give the 10 but we are very close."
