CRICKET star Dominic Cork has been bowled out of reality TV show Dancing on Ice.

The Hampshire and England ace managed to score only 11 out of a possible 30 points awarded by judges in last night’s ITV1 programme.

But in a dramatic twist – the first of its kind – Dominic was given the cold shoulder by other fellow contestants.

Called the “Ice Pick”, Dominic went head to head with television presenter Jeff Brazier in the dance off, but it was then up to the other contestants to skate to the person they wanted to save.

It started off well with Dominic, known as “Corky”, and Jeff getting one vote each. But in the end he only received three and Jeff went through with six.

This week Dominic had been dressed in a Union Jack outfit, complete with painted fingernails.

Cricketing pal Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff had been one of many in the crowd cheering on Dominic.

His routine failed to impress the judges, with outspoken judge Jason Gardiner telling him: ‘The thing I like best about your performance is when it’s over.’

Speaking after being given the boot, Dominic, 39, praised his dance partner Alexandra Schauman.

He said: ‘This girl should get all the applause, not me. I’ve loved every minute.’
