Rowland Rivron became the first celebrity to be eliminated from Comic Relief Does Fame Academy
The TV host found himself in the bottom three alongside presenter Angellica Bell and comedienne Miranda Hart after failing to impress the public with a performance of Stand By Your Man
Angellica was given a reprieve in the judges' vote, leaving Rowland and Miranda's fates in the hands of their fellow contestants. The students decided to give Miranda another chance; which meant that Rowland was the show's first casualty.
All thirteen contestants had sung live to the nation in an attempt to win a place in the brand new Fame Academy next week.
"It is a shame I didn't get into the Academy as it was clear that at the age of 32 a singing career is just round the corner," Rowland joked. "I hope to God all my fellow contestants improve."
The next episode airs on Wednesday night.
