A third put: “All I can think is what a miserable git Jamie Vardy was… if he was my old man I’d have been embarrassed by that.”

During the first episode of Dancing On Ice, comedian Rufus Hound nabbed the judges’ Golden Ticket, earning him a fast-track to musical week.

And rapper Lady Leshurr, unfortunately, failed to get enough votes to avoid landing in next week’s skate-off.
