Despite giving an impressive performance every week, Beth Tweddle is still struggling to top the leaderboard in Dancing on Ice.

In week seven of the skating competition, the Bunbury star donned a huge beehive for the first performance of the night -a jaunty routine to You Can’t Stop the Beat from Hairspray .

The 28-year-old certainly impressed, with big lifts, perfect timing and fast-paced moves, but it wasn’t enough to get an enthusiastic thumbs up from the judges.

As Jason Gardiner put it, ‘this piece really required a lot more commitment to exuberance and fun’.

Despite her fantastic moves, Beth ended up with a 34 out of 40 because the ‘performance element’ let her down.

But the Olympic champion refuses to get disheartened.

“Each week I take the comments from the judges and take them away to the training rink and work harder,” Beth told The Chronicle .

“I will keep trying to improve each week.”

But whatever happens, Beth has been having the time of her life on the show.”

“I have had such a variety of performances,” she said.

“I was really proud of the Scottish routine as at the beginning of that week I had no idea how I was going to turn the routine around and I was also really pleased with the Girls Just Wanna Have Fun routine as I had to really show a performance side and the judges acknowledged that I did.

“It was also great fun to perform.”

Beth has this week announced that she will be one of the celebrities taking part in the final Dancing on Ice tour which begins touring the country at the end of March.
