Former EastEnder Todd Carty provided a classic TV moment with his catastrophic routine on Dancing on Ice when he accidentally skated off the rink and down an exit tunnel. Host Phillip Schofield called it Dancing on Ice's 'funniest moment ever'. Judge Jason Gardiner said he was worried the actor was going to leave the series 'in a body-bag'. But mentor Christopher Dean made light of Todd's hilarious mistake, claiming it was a choreographed part of his performance, something that makes sense in the light of Todd's choice of song - The Beatles' Help! Todd received a dismal 9.5 points out of 30 from the judges, but was saved by the public vote and will feature on Dancing on Ice next week. Holby City star Jeremy Edwards was the latest star to be voted off the show, while Ray Quinn top-scored with 25 points. CLICK below to watch Todd Carty's routine on Dancing on Ice
