Dancing on Ice’s biggest scandals from ‘fix’ claims to Ofcom complaints as finals delayed

DANCING On Ice is the winter show that has captivated fans both on and off screens with its drama since it launched on ITV in 2006.

Fearless celebs take to the ice every year to dazzle audiences with their brave endeavors – but sometimes more drama happens off the ice.

Although the show has been praised for its entertainment value, Dancing on Ice has also often been plagued by rumours.

Fans have also questioned whether it’s a popularity contest, with certain celebs staying longer than expected.

Here, The Sun looks at the most memorable scandals ahead of next week’s final.

Professional dancers

Fans have been shouting it’s a “fix” that three of next week’s finalists have professional dance backgrounds.

Viewers were stunned by the talents of Kimberley Wyatt, who is from chart-topping dance band The Pussycat Dolls.

Regan Gascoigne also dances for a living.

Perhaps the star who has dealt with the most “fix claims” is Brendan Cole.

The former Strictly Come Dancing star has dazzled from the start, with several fans claiming he has an unfair advantage.

Brendan hit back at this, saying: “I think everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses.

“And you can’t compare apples to oranges. Yes, I find it easy to pick up choreography because I’ve been doing it for many years while someone else might struggle.

“There’s definitely a competition within a competition for those who have dance experience, of which there is quite a bit.”

Perri Kiely also had a slight advantage in 2020 with his background in dance.

Despite their obvious entertainment credentials, fans thought certain celebs were staying longer than they should.

They asked how Gemma Collins stayed on the show after collapsing on the ice – a moment that nearly destroyed the internet.

Reflecting on the fall in 2018, Gemma said at the time: “I remember thinking, ‘I’m almost at the end, I haven’t fallen yet, that’s a miracle, maybe I’ll stay in for another week.

“I was so excited I was just overdoing my movement, which is not allowed in ice skating, and my toe pick got caught – bang.”

She continued, “I thought I was dead. I literally thought I was dead.”

Happy Monday’s rocker Bez also shared the crowd with multiple listeners just to see his comedy performances this year.

Others rejoiced when it was eventually scrapped.

The ’90s legend became the fifth star to leave the ITV show after losing to Coronation Street’s Sally Dynevor in the skate-off.

Some viewers called it a solution that he’s survived since he could barely stand on the ice.

Others claimed judges Oti Mabuse, Ashley Banjo, Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean decided to save the actress because she worked for the same channel.

But Bez, 57, reckons only one type of celebrity has a boost — and that’s dancers.

He said: “For everyone, we’re all in the same boat. Everyone has to learn to skate and it’s so hard to learn.

“You have to give credit to everyone. Doing it on ice is such a difficult skill.

“Being a dancer will make your skating really graceful and beautiful.

“But they all started in the same boat and they all have the work and I don’t think it’s fair to criticize people for having dance skills.”
