Connor Ball and Kye Whyte were warmed up from Dancing On Ice tonight after an intense skating spree in the competition’s semi-final.
The pair have left the show tonight, as four judges – Ashley Banjo, Oti Mabuse, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean – chose to save Kimberly Wyatt.
Meanwhile, Regan Gascoigne and Brendan Cole slipped straight into the final of the ITV celebrity contest.
However, when the votes were announced, ITV fans took to Twitter to protest the decision, calling it a “corrective measure”.
One person wrote: “How accurate are these votes, that’s for sure a fix”
Another tweeted: “This show is a fix, #TeamConnor has been trending weekly but Brendan keeps pushing through? Who’s voting for Brendan?????”
A third wrote: “How the hell do you rate this… well they already know who’s passed Phil!”
In tonight’s semi-final, the remaining celebs perform two skates in hopes of making it to the next leg of the competition.
Olympic BMX silver medalist Kye Whyte battled former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, former professional dancer Brendan Cole, The Vamps guitarist Connor Ball and trained dancer Regan Gascoigne in the semi-finals of the ITV show .
This comes as the show went into disarray on Sunday after co-host Holly Willoughby tested positive for Covid-19.
Phillip Schofield helmed the skating competition alone as the ITV show entered the semi-finals.
While Holly cannot host tonight with Phillip, Dancing on Ice has confirmed that she will be back for the live finale in two weeks.
A spokesperson for Dancing on Ice said: “Unfortunately, Holly Willoughby is unable to host tonight after testing positive for Covid-19. We look forward to Holly’s return in the Live Finals on Ice. ”
Co-host Phillip shared a snap of the two together on his Instagram before the show, and wrote: “Amazing my mate won’t be with me on Dancing on Ice tonight. Get well soon.”
This is the second time the Dancing on Ice series has plunged into chaos after testing positive for coronavirus, after Phillip was forced to miss a previous ITV skating performance.
The 59-year-old has also missed several This Morning shows, with host Stephen Mulhern replacing him on Dancing on Ice.
The Saturday Night Takeaway regular, who is currently recovering from a mysterious illness, said Phillip’s were “big shoes to fill” as he walked the side of the rink along Holly.
“I can’t wait to be back hosting with my good friend Holly this weekend. Those are big shoes to fill and I wish Phillip a speedy recovery,” he shared in a statement after The Mirror exclusively revealed he will be Phil’s replacement.
