Dancing on Ice contestant Gemma Collins broke down in tears on Sunday night's show, saying that her recent fall had dented her confidence.

On the night which saw television presenter Saira Khan and skate partner Mark Hanretty become the latest couple to be eliminated, Collins again made most of the headlines as her emotions got the better of her.

"Since the fall my nerves have gone," she cried.

Collins received a score of 13.5 out of a possible 40.

Judge Ashley Banjo advised her to give her all to her routines.

"You are better off coming out here falling, but putting everything in," he said.

However, there was some consolation when Collins received her highest score to date from judge Jason Gardiner, a four.

Viewers had previously seen Collins and Gardiner have words on the ITV show. 

But on Sunday night Collins even agreed with some of Gardiner's criticism. 

She joked that she and the acerbic judge had "become sort of friends now".

"I wouldn't go that far," replied Gardiner.

Collins later vowed to return "better than ever" with skate partner Matt Evers on next weekend's show.

Dancing on Ice continues on Virgin Media One and ITV on Sunday at 6:00pm.
