Unfortunately, Dancing on Ice competitor Stef Reid did not make it to the semifinals as she retired from the competition tonight.
Stef and her professional skating partner Andy Buchanan found themselves in the dreaded skate-off against Kye Whyte and his partner Tippy Packard.
And it was Olympic BMX racer Kye that the judges decided to save and send to next week’s semifinals.
Paralympian Stef, 37, took it by the chin and smiled as she hugged Andy and thanked him for her time on the ITV show.
Dancing on Ice fans were divided over the outcome and took to Twitter to comment.
One person said, “Doesn’t seem fair that Kye can perfect a routine about 6 times and Stef keeps going when she first performs her skate off routine #dancingonice.”
Another joked, “Kai survives his 50th dance of the season #doi #dancingonice.”
A third person tweeted, “These judges are definitely not watching what I’m watching #DancingOnIce.”
However, other fans of the show were keen to show their support for Kye.
One tweeted: “Feeling with Kye. He’s such a good skater… fearless… but he just doesn’t get the votes #skateoff #DancingOnIce.”
And another wrote: “Yessssssssssss c’mon Kye #DancingOnIce.”
Kye will now appear in the semifinals of this year’s series alongside Brendan Cole, Kimberly Wyatt, Connor Ball and Regan Gascoigne.
Host Phillip Schofield also confirmed that there will be a double elimination next Sunday, meaning only three couples will skate in the Dancing on Ice finals on Sunday March 20th.
