'I'm in better shape than ever - despite the bruises': Dynasty star Emma Samms is the latest celebrity gymnast to be eliminated from Tumble
She has been left black-and-blue following rehearsals for this weekend's show.
But it was actress Emma Samms' ego which was left bruised after she was the latest celebrity to be booted off BBC 1 gymnastics show Tumble.
After a mediocre underwater-themed performance, the former Dynasty star was left at the bottom of the pile with just a score of 23.5 out of 40 from judges Nadia Comăneci, Louis Smith, Sebastian Stellar and Craig Heap.
Exit: Dynasty actress Emma Samms was the second celebrity to be eliminated from Tumble on Saturday night
She was a certain for The Vault - the finale decider on which of the contestants will go home.
Former Sugababes singer Amelle Berrabah was also up for elimination, scoring just half a point more than Emma with her shaky cowgirl routine on the mat.
While the 30-year-old pop star pulled out a half-turn vault and landed perfectly on the mat, Emma kept things simple by frog leaping over the apparatus.
Head Judge Nadia was keeping a close eye on their performances from the side, and deemed Emma's basic stunt 'not very impressive' - before deciding to keep Amelle in the competition.

After being axed, the actress - who has also starred in The Colbys, Doctors and General Hospital - told presenter Alex Jones: 'It's been absolutely fantastic. I'm in better shape than I've ever been, despite the bruises!'
She is the second celebrity to be eliminated, following Loose Women host Andrea McLean's departure last week.
Emma had shown off her war wounds just days before the third episode of the series on Saturday night, and explained that she was shocked BBC bosses had allowed such a dangerous show to go to air.
She explained: ‘It is quite dangerous, I’m actually shocked the BBC are allowed to do this, when we did the aerial hoop, I was six metres in the air, upside down, hands free, no safety line, no safety net, yes, there are big pads at the bottom, but I’m shocked.
Leap of faith: The beauty showed off her skills as she performed a simple, yet confident, frog leap over The Vault

Safe: Head Judge Nadia Comăneci decided Amelle's vault was the best and allowed her to perform another day
Tangled: The 30-year-old had previously failed to impress the panel with her mistake-heavy rhythmic performance
‘I don’t know how they were allowed to do it, I’m glad they were, but I’m surprised, especially in this day and age when you imagine everyone is [concerned with] health and safety.’
The episode proved that the extreme stunts were taking their toll on the remaining contestants.
Former Steps star Ian 'H' Watkins suffered whiplash while trying to pull off an impressive double flip on the trampoline, and had to change his performance at the last minute.
The disappointed star said: 'I've hurt my neck really badly - we are doing the show in three days so that's really set us back.

His Beach Boys-style performance, however, pleased the judging panel and he was awarded 29.5 out of 40.
His fellow competitors, boxer Carl Froch, reality star Lucy Mecklenburgh, and former Blue Peter presenter Peter Duncan, were all on an equal par, garnering the same score for their turns on the trampolines.

Former Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding also battled severe nerves during her practise run and broke down in tears as she struggled to master her routine.
The night's most impressive performances came from BAFTA-winning CBBC actor Bobby Lockwood and ex-EastEnders castmember John Partridge.
Bobby started off rehearsals badly, having to be pulled aside by his coach after an angry outburst during a practice session for his basketball-themed rhythmic ball routine.
However, the 21-year-old wowed the judges with his slick moves to 5ive's Everybody Get Up, and scored 32 out of 40 - the highest score of the night and of the season so far.
