And Ben Foden and wife Jackie Belanoff-Smith decided to take some time to themselves following his early exit from the skating programme as they enjoyed a countryside getaway to Soho Farmhouse in Chipping Norton.

Health and wellness entrepreneur Jackie took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a plethora of snaps from the couple’s cosy weekend away, which saw them try their hand at clay pigeon shooting.

The duo cosied up together in one image, donning warmed padded coats as they posed beneath a foliage walkway.

While videos saw them showing off their shooting skills while taking aim at the flying target.

Proud wife Jackie also shared snaps and clips of her partner as he chilled out following several weeks of gruelling training for the ITV show.

It comes after Jackie slammed Dancing On Ice and claimed that the ‘pointless’ programme is an ‘unfair popularity competition’, adding that the worst skater managed to remain in the process.

The US native revealed she was looking forward to jetting out of England, so that she could ‘get back to the real world’ in her scathing attack.

She had previously encouraged viewers not to vote for the rugby professional, joking she was ‘convinced’ he would cheat on her with S Club 7’s Rachel Stevens.

In her post, she began: ‘What’s the point of saying it’s a skate competition when it’s really just a popularity competition?

‘Why divide the skaters into two weeks, groups of your choosing, and why not judge all their scores together after the two weeks?

‘What’s the point of getting a bunch of people together and then not judging them together afterwards?

‘And what’s the point of having a judging panel when it’s all down to a public vote.

‘That’s not a skate competition, it’s a popularity competition. What’s the point of anyone doing this really practicing and trying to learn if you’re just going to be judged on your popularity?

‘It’s a bit unfair, and we’re a bit sad, the worst skater wasn’t the first to go, I don’t really see the point.’

‘Yes, it’s how the show makes money but maybe leave the public vote for the save me skate offs or something?

First out! It comes after Jackie slammed Dancing On Ice and claimed that the 'pointless' programme is an 'unfair popularity competition', adding that the worst skater managed to remain in the process

‘Otherwise it’s just kind of pointless to even try.’

Ben was the first celebrity to be booted from the ITV favourite on Sunday after losing out in the skate off to Ria Hebden. 

And the rugby player’s wife Jackie looked seething after he was axed from the competition, as the couple drove away from Bovingdon ice rink.

Meanwhile, furious viewers branded his elimination a ‘fix,’ claiming that Ria was only saved over Ben because she works for ITV show Lorraine as an entertainment reporter.
