Joe Pasquale has become the sixth celebrity to be voted off 'Dancing on Ice'.

The 51-year-old comedian and TV presenter was unanimously booted off the ITV series by the judges tonight (10.02.13) after going head to head with fellow presenter Keith Chegwin, 56, in a Save Me Skate as they both received the lowest number of votes from the public.

Upon hearing the decision, Joe admitted he was surprised to have progressed so far in the competition.

He told presenter Phillip Schofield: ''It's a shame, but I was here five weeks longer than I should have.''

The former 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here' winner battled shingles throughout his time on the reality series, according to co-host Christine Bleakley.

But he despite his poor health, Joe insisted he had experienced no lows during the competition, saying: ''I haven't had a single low at all.''

He also admitted that he hopes to continue ice-skating, and will miss his professional partner Vicky Ogden.

However he joked: ''I'm going to put my jockstrap on eBay tomorrow.''

Contestants Shayne Ward, Pamela Anderson, Oona King, Anthea Turner and Lauren Goodger were previously eliminated from this year's competition.

'Dancing on Ice' continues next Sunday (February 17) on ITV.
