On Sunday night, Dancing on Ice viewers tuned in to watch the remaining eight contestants tackle icon’s week. However, when hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby were about to introduce comedian Darren Harriott, Holly couldn’t help but have a jibe at her friend’s age.
Week five of the ITV show saw the line-up tackle huge hits from some of the biggest musical icons from across the decades.
Dancing on Ice viewers saw the likes of Joey Essex skate to Elton John, Nile Wilson to Robbie Williams, Patsy Palmer to the Spice Girls and Mollie Gallagher to Billie Eilish.
With the competition heating up with the celebrities improving each week, the two hosts reiterated the importance of the public voting to save their favourite contestant.
Phil commented that the line-up was in need of star quality this week as somebody would be going home later on in the same show.
Holly commented: “It is time for our next couple who are taking us back to the 80s where the colours were loud and the hair was huge.”
Taking in a big breath, Phil joked to viewers that both he nor Holly couldn’t remember the decade.
Looking at her co-star to call him out, Holly replied: “Ermm…. But-”
Phil quickly interjected: “Shut your face! It’s Darren and Tippy”
Although, Holly seemed taken aback by his outburst as she visibly jumped when he demanded her to quiet as she mimed to the live audience she was zipping her mouth.
Holly, who is 42 years old, was born at the start of the 80s whereas Phil was born in 1962 and would have a clear recollection of what the era was like.
However, the exchange between the two friends seemed to be in good humour as the live crowd giggled and they laughed the ageing probe over before Darren took to the ice.
The comedian and his partner Tippy performed a routine to the classic 80s hit – I’m Your Man by Wham.
Seeming to impress judges Ashely Banjo, Oti Mabuse, Christopher Dean and Jayne Torvill, they managed to secure a score of 28.5 out of a possible 40.
However, it wasn’t enough to secure his place in next week’s show as Darren found himself in the skate-off against EastEnders star Patsy Palmer.
The duo have to take to the ice for a second time with their fate in the judge’s hands who had to decide which one would continue.
In the end, it was Darren and Tippy who were saved as Patsy became the fourth person to leave the competition.
Speaking about their exit, Patsy said: “It’s been amazing, I’ve met the best people ever.
“We’ve been like one big family, everyone on this show is truly beautiful people, matt has been amazing.
“I’ve proved that I can, to myself and exceeded what I thought I could do so I’m genuinely proud of myself.”
The soap legend joins Liberty X star Michelle Heaton, football legend John Fashanu and Love Island winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu who have all been eliminated in the series so far.
Dancing on Ice continues Sunday on ITVX and ITV1 from 6:25pm
