Dancing On Ice's Michelle Heaton responds after fans' 'frustration' over her exit

Former Liberty X star Michelle Heaton found herself at the bottom of the vote during the second week of Dancing on Ice, but didn't get the chance to try and save her place in the competition with the dreaded skate-off. Instead for one week only Dancing on Ice changed its format, meaning the celebrity's judges' score and public votes were combined and the celebrity with the lowest total score was sent home.

Michelle has taken to her Instagram to tell her fans that she hears their "frustration" and that she is "heartbroken" to be out of the competition, hinting she feels her exit was unfair. The skate-off will return to Dancing on Ice on Sunday, February 5 and for the rest of the competition.

Posting to Instagram, she said: "What a ride...I didn't want it to end. Heartbroken. Though hear me when I say, I am overwhelmed with the support on this platform & others, I hear the me, I am sad too."
