ITV viewers are wondering who was voted off Dancing on Ice last night? as the show kicks off for 2023.

Eleven new celebrities and their professional skating partners were hoping to impress the judges on this years' show when it started  but nobody likes to be in the bottom two, let alone face the skate-off.

Taking to the TV studio ice rink for the 15th series of the hit ITV show, regular hosts Phillip Scofield and Holly Willoughby return to screens. Viewers have many questions - including where is Dancing on Ice filmed - but the most important is who made it through and who was voted off...

Who was voted off Dancing on Ice last night?

Siva Kaneswaran and his professional partner Klabera Komini and Mollie Gallagher and her professional partner Sylvain Longchambon were the seventh and eighth celebrity to be voted off Dancing on Ice this week. 

The Wanted singer and Coronation Street actress failed to impress judges with their routine and just misses out on the final.

As a result Siva and Mollie found themselves in the bottom three alongside Joey Essex and pro skater Vanessa Bauer, and all three went head-to-head in the Skate Off. Once they have performed their routine, judges Jayne Torvill, Christopher Dean, Oti Mabuse and Ashley Banjo gave their verdict. 

The judges all decided to save Joey Essex and this automatically put him through to the final alongside Nile Wilson and Drag queen The Vivienne.

Speaking after the elimination, Mollie said, "It’s truly been the best experience. It’s everything I thought I couldn’t do and I literally got to the semi-final. Sylvain has been so patient and the best person.”

And Siva added, "I’ve done everything I’ve aimed to do on this so, I’m just so happy, I’m proud of all of us, we’ve done so well."

Who won Dancing on Ice 2022?

Regan Gascoigne won Dancing on Ice 2022 with his partner Karina Manta. The professional dancer and son of footballer Paul Gascoigne beat off competition from Brendan Cole and singer Kimberley Wyatt to lift the trophy. He was bookies favourite to win the show throughout the contest and didn't fail to disappoint viewers.

Speaking after his triumphant win, Regan said, "We said that we just wanted to get to the end, just so we got do all of the dances and have the full experience. 

"I was trying to mentally slow it down throughout the last two weeks and just live every moment of it."

Professional skater Karina added, "It was unreal just a moment that every skater dreams about and it couldn't have gone more perfectly."

How to get Dancing on Ice 2023 tickets?

You can apply for Dancing on Ice 2023 tickets through SRO audiences who allocate the tickets.

They say about their ticket policy: “We try to be as fair as we can about issuing the tickets. Successful applicants are randomly selected from amongst those who apply. We aim to email tickets to the successful applicants as quickly as possible.”

SRO previously said, “This year for Dancing On Ice, we shall be admitting the audience in a different way to usual; we never know in advance whether each group will attend, or will use all of their tickets, and we, therefore, over-issue tickets to compensate for the inevitable no-shows and base the over-issue on the attendance at previous recordings of a show.

“At most shows, we admit regular ticket holders on a first-come first-served basis. We shall be recording this show with each group will be seated at a table."

SRO continued, “In order to make the most of the available space and accommodate as many people as possible, groups who fit the available tables will be favoured.

“Therefore, although hopefully we shall still accommodate everyone who attends, at this production, if a group arrives after your party but the size of their group fits the available seats and yours does not, that group may be admitted first.”

Does Dancing on Ice have a voting app?

Dancing on Ice has changed the way viewers can vote and fans have complained after bosses decided to ditch the app this year and allow viewers to vote online instead.

One fan admitted, 'Had to give up on voting. Too complicated & long winded compared to the app which was quick & easy. Why change it? #DancingOnIce#DOI,'

Another added, 'Anyone else struggle to vote? Verified mobile and everything to get a voting is closed page? Did it open?'

And a third fan shared their frustrations, 'Is anyone else having trouble voting, I couldn't get to the page. Why is there no app this year it was much easier. They have lost my votes tonight. #dancingonice,'

Another fan asked, 'Why hasn’t #DancingOnIce got its own app for voting or give us longer to vote as it’s taken me ages just to find where you vote on the website," as a third wrote: "Don't like this new way of voting#DancingOnIce.'

Fans using the app this week struggled to get their votes cast in time if voting for free, with viewers only given 10 minutes to vote for their favourite.

Viewers can also call to vote but charges apply.
