Ben Foden’s wife left fuming as husband is first to be axed from Dancing On Ice

Ben Foden’s wife Jackie Belanoff-Smith looked particularly annoyed after her husband was booted off last night’s episode of ITV's Dancing On Ice.

The couple were pictured leaving the Dancing On Ice studios together last night, driving away from the show after the unfortunate result.

Jackie looked displeased as they made their way home from Bovingdon ice rink, shooting daggers at the paparazzi that were waiting to catch a glimpse of the pair.

Despite her sour mood, 36 year old Ben seemed to be in good spirits as he drove their car.

Her husband Ben was up against TV presenter Ria Hebden in the bottom two and had to perform to the judging panel, in an attempt to be saved and make it through to next week’s show.

Ben and his partner Robin Johnstone danced to Eric Clapton’s song Wonderful Tonight, while Ria and her partner Łukasz Różycki danced to Me! By Taylor Swift.

Oti Mabuse, Jayne Torvill, Ashley Banjo and Christopher Dean all voted to save Ria, leaving Ben the first celebrity to be booted off this year’s series.

During his final moments on the show, Foden explained that he had enjoyed his time in the competition.

He told Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: “I really have. As I have said before, this woman is so incredible, and it's the people that make this experience.”

After praising his partner Robin, he continued: "I thought there would be someone who couldn't skate, but turns out it was me."

Much like his wife, many viewers were annoyed at his shock departure. Fans took to Twitter to share their views on last night’s episode and many thought that his exit was planned.

One fan wrote: "Cannot believe Ben was voted off. I thought he was a lot better in the skating performances than Lorraine’s friend. Of course, that didn’t play a part in the voting"

Another observant fan noticed: "Ria can’t skate without holding her partner. Quite literally clinging to her partner whilst Ben is lifting his partner. Such a fix."
