Have the judges been 'too kind'?

It seems the fans have also been unhappy that the judges have been 'over-marking'. Twitter users spoke out about the judges being too generous with their marks. One even said that a return of 'Mr Nasty' Jason Gardiner would have been welcome.

The favourite to win?

Audiences have highlighted that Regan Gascoigne has seemed to be a firm judges' favourite during the season. There are no doubts about his skating ability, but many have been outraged the dancer received such high marks despite his slips. He almost fell over three times in one of his performances. He has made it to the final, however and many are looking forward to the final skate-off between either him, Brendan Cole, Kye Whyte, Kimberly Wyatt or Connor Ball.

Brendan Cole

From Strictly to DOI, Brendan has started the show with a mixed review from the fans. Many have said his training and background as a professional dancer on Strictly means he is at an unfair advantage. But when asked if he had ever taken to the ice before, he replied ‘I’ve had one go.’

Ria Hebden

Entertainment editor for Lorraine and presenter for This Morning’s Sofa Tour is gutted to be in the bottom two after the first skate. Does the curse of last year’s Dancing on Ice worry the presenter? Although she has described the experience as ‘scary’, she also said “You’ve got to say yes to things that excite you.” The public were on the edge of their seats, until week 3 when she got the boot.

Liberty Poole

Liberty Poole, famous for walking on the seventh season of ITV’s Love Island, seems up for the challenge. She is only 21 years old and took ice-skating up as a hobby, although she isn’t as nimble as previously thought and took a bad tumble in rehearsals, slamming onto her back. Her fall in week 5 saw her out of the competition.

His extreme sport background certainly put him in good stead. White said, “I think the thing I’m really confident about is I don’t really mind if I fall, I’m quite fearless.”
