Dancing On Ice viewers fume as they accuse stars of ‘clinging onto’ to their partners


Dancing on Ice returned for it’s second episode on Sunday, with stars including The Vivienne, and Corrie’s Mollie Gallagher all taking to the rink ahead of footballer John Fashanu being the first voted off the show.

However viewers were left unimpressed with the lack of skating, accusing the celebs of ‘clinging onto’ their partners and joked there was ‘no chance of anyone falling’. 

Even the judges noticed the trend with actress Mollie even being told she was relying too much on pro Sylvain Longchambon.

Taking to Twitter on viewer wrote: ‘No chance of anyone falling tonight coz they ain’t letting go of their partners!!’.  

While another hit out at footballer John’s routine: ‘Wasn’t even skating on his own, was holding her hand throughout. Get him out’. 

With a second writing: ‘He was holding on to partner, whole time 5/4.5 is genuine. sorry’.

Despite only scoring 19 out of 40 another viewer declared John had been ‘overmarked’: ‘Overmarked, he spent most of his routine not moving his feet’.  

While Hollyoaks Carley Stenson, who scored an impressive 32, also faced the rath of viewers with one commenting: ‘ Sorry she held onto him the whole time and gets 8s across the board, fixed’. 

Elsewhere on the show  The Vivienne made history on the ITV show by becoming the first drag queen to perform.

The RuPaul’s Drag Race star and her pro partner Colin Grafton were thrilled as they scored a total of 28.5 out of 40, with Ashley, Oti and Jayne scoring her 7, while Chris gave a 7.5. 

Oti praised The Vivienne’s first performance: ‘If you are going to make history, this is how you make history congratulations!’

Chris appeared impressed and said: ‘A star was born on the ice tonight. Our very own diva on ice but you are our best skating by far.’ 

Unimpressed: Taking to Twitter on viewer wrote: 'No chance of anyone falling tonight coz they ain't letting go of their partners!!'

He then quoted Cher and said: ‘We all invent ourselves but some just have more imagination.’

The Drag Queen looked sensational in a black mesh catsuit with shimmering detail across the front, with Colin wearing a matching top and leather trousers. 

Many viewers took to Twitter to express their frustration to ITV at the amount of voting time that was allocated on the first and second week – noting that they didn’t even get a chance to get to the page before the vote closed.

Despite the glitz and glamour, it was a tough start to the series for fan favourite Love Island’s Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, who landed herself in the bottom two by receiving the least amount of public votes.

The Love Island star recreated a memorable scene from the ITV2 reality show where she crawled on the ground and prompted over 100 Ofcom complaints from viewers who thought the routine was too racy for the family friendly series.

Speaking before the skate-off she said: ‘I’m not going to lie I was really upset thinking what have I done wrong but I’m strong, I need to work hard and prove myself. ‘

After the five celebrities performed during week two, it was time to find out who would be dancing again next week in the bottom two – and was at risk of being sent home.
