Liberty Poole became the latest star to leave Dancing on Ice – but it didn't come without a surprising message backstage.
The former Love Island star was gutted to get the axe from the ITV skating show on Sunday night (February 13) – along with her pro skating partner Joe Johnson.
Liberty had suffered a nightmare night as she stumbled on the ice rink during her rollercoaster routine to Flo Rider's hit song Right Round.
Although she managed to get back up in her feet and bagged 28 points out of 40 from the judges, it wasn't enough to save her at the end of the night.
After being booted from the show, heartbroken Liberty took to Instagram to tell her fans she had been crying over the result.
However, she was baffled by a message in a tissue that harked back to her days as a Nando's waitress.
Chatting to her fans in a series of clips, she said: "Despite what happened tonight, I'm so thankful for everything and to everyone…"
She proceeded to tell them about how she was handed a Nando's tissue to wipe her tears away – which reminded her of her pre-fame days as a Nando's worker.
Liberty worked for the chicken restaurant chain before she entered the Love Island villa in the summer of 2021.

Telling the tissue tale, Liberty said: "Also, how weird is this? You're not gonna get this. So imagine I'm crying because it's been an emotional one. Someone hands me a tissue. Five minutes later I open it."
The message in the napkin read: "Hot mess,"
Holding up the napkin, Liberty said: "Nando's – hot mess. I worked at Nando's for five years and I'm crying, and the tissue says hot mess. Don't you think the universe is weird?"
Captioning the clips, she wrote: "The universe works in mysterious ways."

Liberty was eliminated from DOI after she landed in the bottom two with her fellow contestant Kye Whyte.
However, almost all of the judges – including Jayne Torvill, Ashley Banjo and Christopher Dean – opted to save Kye.
Only Oti Mabuse chose to save Liberty, but it wasn't enough to put her through to next week so Liberty had to leave.
Reacting to her exit, Liberty told viewers: I've enjoyed every second, I'm proud of myself."
