After Lady Leshurr and Myleene Klass took to the ice to try and keep their place in the ITV skating contest, it was left up to the judges as to which star would remain on Dancing on Ice. However, following the skate-off, it was Myleene and pro partner Lukasz who were sent packing in emotional scenes.
But it’s fair to say the decision to send Myleene hasn’t sat well with a number of ITV viewers.
Several Dancing on Ice fans were left fuming that Myleene and Lady Leshurr were the two who faced the skate-off in the first place.
Taking to Twitter following the Dancing on Ice exit, one vented: “Ludicrous. Neither of them should even have been in the skate-off. Beyond ridiculous that Myleene is out. #DancingOnIce.”
A second echoed: “Travesty that Myleene was in the bottom though. Last week it should have been Jason [Donovan], this week it should have been Billie [Shepherd] #DancingOnIce.”
A third added to the debate: “Myleene was not the worst tonight and didn’t deserve to be in the skate-off!! And now we’re deprived of Lucasz too #DOI.”
While a fourth added: “I don’t think anyone would have guessed Myleene would be out first. #DancingOnIce.”
Despite her early exit, Myleene remained gracious in defeat as she thanked Lukasz for their time together on the show.
And while her exit may have seemed premature to some, the leaderboard had hinted at a possible farewell after she failed to impress the judges earlier in the show.
Myleene’s departure was a result of all four judges unanimously voting to send Lady Leshurr through to the next round.
But speaking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield following the decision, Myleene remained in high spirits.
After receiving a standing ovation, Myleene said: “Can I just say, I couldn’t have done this obviously without Lukasz, without my family, without my friends.
“I mean, I’d never skated before and now I’ve got a skill I learnt in lockdown, who’d have thought it?” she added.
Myleene went onto mention how she’ll be hitting the ice rink once they open beyond lockdown with “a coffee” ready for her partner.
And signing off her farewell, the Dancing on Ice star continued: “To everybody, to all the skaters to everyone, to the whole team,
“It’s not been an easy production to put together in lockdown so – I feel really chuffed. It’s probably the most relaxed I’ve been in the whole competition.”
But which celebrity will be following in Myleene’s footsteps next week?
Dancing on Ice continues Sunday on ITV.
