Dancing On Ice 2012: Heidi Range finds herself in the skate-off

There were shocked faces all round on Sunday night as Sugababe Heidi Range found herself in the first Dancing On Ice 2012 skate-off.

We were worried Friday's Original Sugababes news might make her wobble on the ice.

And the Scouse singer, who was forced to swap professional partners at the last minute, sure enough found herself in the bottom two, alongside Blue Peter presenter Andy Akinwolere.

After they received one vote each from new judges Louie Spence and Katarina Witt, Heidi was saved by third adjudicator Robin Cousins, leaving Andy to hang up his skating boots after just one week.

Sugababes star Heidi had been one of the key celebrities to join this year's DOI line-up.

But she had a troubled start when her original partner Sylvain was forced to pull out of the show due to a serious bicep injury.

And it showed tonight as the 28-year-old moved tentatively and rigidly across the famous ice.

At the other end of the spectrum, Hollyoaks star Jorgie Porter topped the leaderboard, making her dance look effortless.

But it was new host Christine Bleakley (who replaced Holly Willoughby) and Louie (who took Jason Gardner's position on the judging panel) who provoked most of the chat amongst online viewers.

Twitter followers complained that they wanted to see 'This Morning' host Holly - who has left to join BBC show 'The Voice' - back on their screens, while they ranted about Louie's "annoying" lisp.
