First gone: It comes after the broadcaster shocked viewers when she became the first contestant axed from the celebrity skating competition (Pictured with partner Lukasz Rozycki)
It comes after the broadcaster shocked viewers in January when she became the first contestant axed from the celebrity skating competition.
Myleene and partner Lukasz Rozycki were sent home after losing a skate-off to Lady Leshurr and Brendyn Hatfield.
After her elimination, the star told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: ‘I couldn’t have done it without Lukasz and my family. I’ve never skated before so this is a skill I’ve learned in lockdown.
‘When the rinks are back open, I will be there. To all the team here, it’s not been an easy production in lockdown so I feel really chuffed. I’m really happy.’
