Dancing on Ice fans fume as Graham Bell is eliminated after unanimous decision

Dancing on Ice bid farewell to another celebrity on Sunday evening as Graham Bell became the latest contestant to depart the 2021 series.

This week saw the celebrities tackle Musical Week as they performed to hit shows such as Grease, Hamilton and The Bodyguard.

Sadly the judges John Barrowman, Ashley Banjo, Christopher Dean and Jayne Torvill decided to send skating olympian Graham and his professional partner Karina Manta home.

Graham, 55, looked gutted as he realised he would be leaving the competition after going up against WAG Rebekah Vardy in the skate off.

After performing for a second time, Graham told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that he had a tear in his eye as he loved the Biffy Clyro song that they had skated to.

Viewers watching at home were not happy to see Graham go and took to Twitter to vent about the judges' decision.

One person posted: "graham was better than rebekah in literally every way but whatever #DancingOnIce."

A second added: "Disappointed with the judges tonight. Rebecca may have attempted to perform a technically more advanced routine but she made multiple mistakes – how does that mean Graham should go home when he performed his routine so well?? #dancingonice."

And a third person simply wrote: "Graham was robbed. #DancingOnIce."

Another fan of the show fumed: "Graham looked visibly frustrated and no wonder, I swear Rebekah nearly slipped at one point, how the 4 judges could look at her routine and think she was better than Graham is beyond me. #DancingOnIce."

Graham told Holly and Phil that he would continue skating in his own time – so, clearly taking part in the show had an impact on him.

This week's episode of Dancing on Ice was missing two contestants in the form of Rufus Hound and Billie Shepherd.

Former Towie star Billie was absent due to her granny's death and Rufus is currently self-isolating after contracting coronavirus.

Denise van Outen was forced to quit the competition after sustaining a nasty injury during training, but she was replaced by former gymnast Amy Tinkler.
