Dancing On Ice: Elen Rivas Pulls On John Terry’s Chelsea As McLachlan Pushes Off
ELEN Rivas will not be dropped on her head, have a finger sliced off or shatter her pelvis. At least she will not on prime-time telly. The current tabloid companion of Mr Peter Andre has been voted off Dancing On Ice. Also not though to the next round – or the competition proper as the current conceit goes – is the man who once played Kylie Minogue’s big brother on Neighbour’s, Craig McLachlan.
In defeat, Craig offered the kind of brutal self-assessment that’s often missing from less starry sports:
“Now that I’ve come this far I would love the opportunity to push myself further.”
Rather than have his pro dancer partner Maria Filippov do the pushing.
Elen conjured the kind of self-appraisal and take on the situation we’ve come to expert from our sporting elite, notably since Chelsea FC rose to the fore:
“If I go out now I’ll be totally devastated – I think I’ll cry.”
Close your eyes and we might be listening to John Terry. If Rivas took anything from her time with Frank Lampard it is surely the patter of the professional athlete. As she adds:
“I think it went very well. But I’m gutted though.”
Also through are Hollyoaks star Jennifer Metcalfe, Dave Vitty, Sam Attwater, Dominic Cork, Johnson Beharry, Kerry Katona, Laura Hamilton, Chloe Madeley, Jeff Brazier, Steve Arnold, Vanilla Ice and Denise Welch.
