Dancing On Ice 2013: Matt Lapinskas chooses Luke Campbell & Gareth Thomas for team challenge!
Following last night’s Dancing on Ice live show on ITV1, the celebrities were asked to stay behind to find out about this weekend’s ‘Team Challenge’.
Torvill and Dean informed Matt Lapinskas and Beth Tweddle that since they had topped the leaderboard (with judges scores added to public votes) during ‘Love Week’ they would captain the teams and subsequently get to choose which of their fellow celebs they wanted to skate with.
Former Eastenders star Matt chose Luke Campbell and Gareth Thomas, while Beth Tweddle chose Samia Ghadie and Keith Chegwin.
The two trios will practice together all week and be working on their new routines, as set by the coaches and it’s all to play for as after the judges choose a winning team, each member will have their individual scores doubled on the individual leader board.
Matt’s team will be skating to MC Hammer’s – You Can’t Touch This, while Beth’s team will be skating to Gangnam style.
Tweddle sounds pretty excited about the twist and tweeted this afternoon saying:
“Thank you so much for everyone’s lovely messages! Excited to find out this weeks routine @TheDanWhiston”
Matt promised fans that he would be back to his normal sparkly self on Sunday and tweeted:
“So I’m waiting for my music for this weeks @dancingonice routine! What are we thinking! I think upbeat! Lets get Matt back on that ice!!!”
