Sean Young and Denis Petukhov have become the first pairing to be eliminated from new CTV show Skating with the Stars.

The pair received the lowest combined score from the first two performances, taking a total of 64 out of a possible 120 points.

Following her exit, Young said: “I thank Denis for giving me one of the greatest experiences in my life!” Sean said after receiving the axe. “I’ll take away a very worn in pair of skates and an experience I’ll never be able to have again.”

The competition intensifies as the remaining couples put their best foot forward and compete.

A new big-budget Canadian-Irish-Hungarian television production focussing on sex, corruption and violence at the Vatican is expected to not cause any concern to the Catholic Church.

The Borgias, which will feature veteran actor Jeremy Irons and Canadians Colm Feore and Francois Arnaud, is not expected to rustle the feathers of the Church despite its edgy content.

My hunch would be that, having lived through The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, the Vatican won’t be terribly shocked by a movie on the Borgias,” said John Allen, the Vatican correspondent for CNN.

The show, which films in Hungary, will air on CTV in Canada next spring and on Showtime in the US.

The show’s producer, James Flynn, believes times have changed and the Catholic Church has hardened up to the controversies surrounding it.

“I think people have moved on,” Flynn told Postmedia News.

“I think 15 years ago, yes, in Ireland, there would have been people who would be outraged, because the Catholic Church (before recent exposure of widespread sex abuse in Ireland) was held in such high regard.

“Today I think they’ll probably ignore it.”
