Fans of Dancing On Ice sometimes feel that some contestants are given an unfair advantage over others, whether because of their dance background or the fact that they have good entertainment value.

Dancing On Ice is the dangerous, high-octane entertainment we all need to fill our first rainy weekends.
But rarely does the show go without a hitch.
Most recently, the ITV competition has faced a number of woes due to the coronavirus pandemic, with stars and pundits forced to isolate and miss shows while they recover or even pull out of shows. .
And besides, there are fixation claims that seem to pervade the show every year.
Here we take a look at some of the repair requests that have hit this series and in recent years, and the reasons behind them…
It seems almost every year fans feel that a particular contestant has an unfair advantage over others.
This year, according to viewers, former professional actor Brendan Cole of the serious professional team Come Dancing has the upper hand.
But Brendan has denied he has an advantage thanks to his choreography training.
“I think everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses,” he said.
“And you can’t compare an apple with a pear. Yes, I find it very easy to practice choreography because that’s what I’ve been doing for years, while other people might have a hard time.
“There is definitely a competition in a competition for those with dance experience, of which there are a few.”
In 2019, some fans suggested that the vote was fixed to keep Gemma Collins in the contest because of her popularity and entertainment value.
When people assumed she was better at skateboarding than her, some fans were horrified to see Gemma alive, especially the week she fell face down on the ice.
One viewer said at the time: “Gemma is making a bloody joke about this show. She’s purposefully told all about herself. A real and kind figure skater. hard work will go home tonight. #Dancingonice”
Another tweeted: “Fair play for going on but your skating Particular is way behind the others & you fell but you made it through!!!! #DancingOnIce”
A third added: “You can’t seriously #dancingonice Gemma Collins is mocking this show”
But of course, it’s the viewer’s vote that determines who gets to skate.
Some fans of the show even think that the show is fixed for certain professionals.
Many argue that Vanessa Bauer is always well matched by her partner to ensure she has as much time to participate in the competition as possible.
This year, she teamed up with Brendan Cole, and previously teamed up with winners Jake Quickenden, runners-up Perri Kiely and Wes Nelson and Joe-Warren Plant, who took the lead before he was forced to withdraw after positive Covid test.
One person tweeted: “Do they really want Vanessa to be a rogue. Level of bias. #DancingOnIce.”
Another commented: “Vanessa holds the power of producers to always be paired with the most popular male singer #dancingonice #doi.”
The third asked: “How does vanessa always get decent partners? #Dancingonice.”
Back in 2018, fans were annoyed with the judges, who they claimed decided who would make it to the finals.
The accusation came after former X Factor star Jake Quickenden received 9.5 points from the judges despite the error.

Jayne Torvill, Christopher Dean and Ashley Banjo said they would have scored him 10 if he hadn’t made a mistake, prompting fans to speculate that they had already decided in advance how many points they would give him.
And Chris only exacerbated the rumors by telling Jake he was “definitely” going to be in the finale.
People claimed on Twitter that the events proved the show was a fix, but of course the judges didn’t discuss the scores they were going to give and secretly entered their scores into the computer after each performance. .
