Dancing on Ice 2020: Viewers ‘switch off’ after noticing audience’s distracting habit

Dancing on Ice was back on ITV and tonight, the other six celebrity contestants took to the ice to perform their first partnered routines. While there was an incredibly moving performance from Libby Clegg MBE, and a final skate from Trisha Goddard, those at home were distracted by something else altogether. 

This evening marked the end of the road for Trisha as she was the first celebrity to be eliminated from the competition. 

She faced Lucrezia Molinari following a public vote, but it was the ITV news anchor showed more improvement to the judges and was unanimously voted through to week three. 

Elsewhere in the show, Paralympian Libby took to the ice and her performance left Christopher Dean unable to speak and in tears. 

Meanwhile, Maura Higgins’ score infuriated viewers after they suggested she was “undermarked”.
