Dancing on Ice has eliminated its eighth celebrity contestant.

Flying Week – otherwise known as the season's semi-finals – saw each celebrity contestant perform two routines; one with their pro partners performing a rigged flight above the rink and one 'solo skate', with Amber Davies leaving the competition just before the final.

The former Love Island star performed a routine to 'Wildest Dreams' by Taylor Swift and scored the first perfect '40.0' of the series – but after landing in the skate off against radio DJ Adele Roberts and Mark Hanretty, who had skated to 'Rise Like a Phoenix' by Conchita Wurst, the judges (including a returning Ashley Banjo), cast their verdicts.

Ashley, Oti Mabuse and Christopher Dean all voted to save Adele, meaning head judge Jayne Torvill's vote was irrelevant – but she confirmed she would have done the same, eliminating Amber.

"I just feel like younger me would not believe that I've had this experience. It has been life changing in so many ways. The team as a whole is amazing," Amber said after her elimination, before shouting out the various facets of the DoI production team, and adding: "Thank you so much."

For the episode's 'solo skate', the five remaining celebrities had to perform a group routine, with each celeb getting their moment in the spotlight.

The winning celeb – Olympic long jumper Greg Rutherford – received an extra five points on top of his score for his partnered skate, with each descending celebrity receiving one less point, until the fifth-place skater got an extra one point.

After a routine featuring 'Highway to Hell' by AC/DC, Amber placed fifth, Adele Roberts fourth, Coronation Street's Ryan Thomas third, and Made in Chelsea's Miles Nazaire second.

For their partner skates, Greg and Vanessa James skated to 'A Sky Full of Stars' by Coldplay, and Miles skated to 'Feeling Good' by Michael Bublé with Vanessa Bauer.

Ryan and Amani Fancy's routine saw the pair perform to 'Ain't That a Kick in the Head?' by Robbie Williams.

Next week's final stars Adele, Ryan, Greg and Miles competing for the crown.

Dancing on Ice airs on Sunday nights on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
