Luke Campbell vows to find his groove on Dancing On Ice
Luke Campbell's rhythm came under fire tonight but he still romped through to the next round of Dancing On Ice.
Luke, who performed to "When the Going Gets Tough" as part of tonight's School Disco theme, readily admitted he struggles to find the beat but was chuffed to be complimented on his skating skills.
Jason Gardiner, who has been critical of Luke in previous shows, said: "There are a lot of timing issues. It is so funny to watch because you just can not naturally feel rhythm. All your foot work and those sequences with your footwrok- it looked like you were stepping on drawing pins.
Fellow judge Robin Cousins, an Olympic figure skater, has defended Luke in the past but tonight agreed with Jason's critique of the boxer's performance.

He said: "You had more fun, you owned the performance unfortunately there were 35,000 different rythms and none of them were of the music that was playing at the time.
"But Karen and I have no choice but to give you credit for the skating skills that were out there: working on your own, working with a partner two or three jumps, technique is still a bit all over the place but the skating skills were there but you have to try and find some natural rythm. However you do it in the gym when you are sparring get with it now on the ice."
Luke held up his hands to the criticism, saying: "I have no rhythm whatsoever they are totally right but I am trying and hopefully by the end of it I will have a bit of a beat to me."
Phillip Schofield made Luke and his partner Jenna Smith wait right until the last moment to be told they were through to the next round, only announcing they were safe at the very end of the list of the celebrities voted through by the public.
Anthea Turner and Keith Chegwin ended up in the skate off before the judges decided to send Anthea home.
Luke will now skate again next week, when he will hopefully reveal he has learnt his new found rhythm.
