Corrie's Andy Whyment skates off Dancing on Ice

Monday March 5, 2012

Coronation Street star Andy Whyment is heading back to Weatherfield's famous cobbles after being frozen out of ITV's Dancing On Ice.

The actor, who plays Kirk Sutherland, lost a skate-off against professional skier Chemmy Alcott in the latest round of the ITV1 show. 

Andy and his partner Vicky Ogden found themselves in the bottom two by a combination of low scoring by the three panel judges and an unimpressed public.

Andy, 30, thanked his wife, the Corrie producers for letting him do the show and said: "I have had an amazing time."

Before the skate-off, the actor said he knew it was going to be his last dance so just intended to enjoy it. And he was proved right.

Wearing head-to-toe white, he and Vicky spun and twirled out their last routine to Elvis Presley's Suspicious Minds but did nothing to change the judges' minds.
