Joe and Vanessa skated to Sucker by the Jonas Brothers and received 25 points out of 40.

“I literally thought I was doing everything perfectly and then I just ended up on the floor and I don’t know what happened.”

Vanessa added: “It was his first fall of the day as well. He actually has to fall at least 20 times a day so…”

Judge Ashley Banjo revealed he would have given Joe another point if he didn’t fall.

What did Ashley say to Joe-Warren Plant?

He said: “If it’s a stumble, that’s one thing but a fall is a fall. For me, I’m taking off a full point. But let’s move past that because you skate so effortlessly.”

The other judges also praised Joe for his performance.

I literally thought I was doing everything perfectly and then I just ended up on the floor.

At the end of the show, the public voted to save the couples from the first skate-off.

Joe and Vanessa managed to escape the skate-off and rapper Lady Leshurr and partner Brendyn Hatfield ended up the couple who will have to skate for survival next weekend.

Lady Leshurr had bagged 25 points for her first performance on the ice earlier in the programme.
