Dancing On Ice fans accused the judges of “bias” on the latest episode of ITV series.
Just one performance, viewers could not help but bewildered by the latest series of scores from the judge for contestant Regan Gascoigne.
Regan and his skating partner Karina Manta joined Hairspray for Musical Week, and their performance was as great as ever.
From a series of difficult jumps and lifts, to his moves on the rink, Regan kept everyone on the set and viewers at home equally impressed.
But after he slipped a bit in the regular competition, according to guest judge Arlene Phillips and judge Oti Mabuse, some fans were surprised by his score.
Regan was given a negative 9 by the judges, a total of 45 for him and Karina.
While many agreed he deserved the mark, some in the audience were unimpressed after claiming that they noticed a few slippages at various points in the process.
When combined with a near-fall during the Judge’s Challenge jump, some in the audience questioned whether he should have received nearly full marks for the regular section.
Many admitted they “didn’t understand” how the scoring system worked, with scores high despite errors, as others accused the panel of bias.
One fan tweeted: “Wow 9 has passed the table, imagine the Free Spins tripping will attract someone.”
Another concurred: “He failed again but still got a 9. I don’t understand the scoring in the show!!!”
The third added: “9 ??? That’s a very good jump but not a worthy nine. It seemed a bit too simple for Regan and he stumbled.”
Meanwhile, a fourth viewer said: “Failed twice but still got a 9”, another agreed: “HE WAS SLOWED TWO TIMES AND STILL GET 9 ???? ffs trend partial.”
Earlier this week, bosses were said to be worried that the show will be forced to air this Sunday after Storm Eunice spark chaos.
The hit skating show was filmed at Bovingdon Airport in Hemel Hempstead, which is already windy.
However, the crew is said to fear that history could repeat itself for a ITV shows, and is concerned that the carriages and cabins on site may be damaged.
It comes later I Am A Celebrity was broadcast for three days after the set was severely damaged by Hurricane Arwen last year.
An insider told Daily Star that they have “stretched themselves up”.
A source on the show also told the Mirror: “The show took a number of precautions today as the health and safety of our cast and crew is paramount. but we’re very confident it won’t affect Sunday’s show.”
Even so, the show went well, with the series unhindered by another storm.
Dancing On Ice airs at 6pm every Sunday on ITV.
