Dancing on Ice contestant Stef Reid sadly didn’t make it to the semi-final as she bowed out of the competition tonight.
Stef and her professional skating partner Andy Buchanan found themselves in the dreaded skate-off against Kye Whyte and his partner Tippy Packard.
And it was Olympic BMX racer Kye who the judging panel chose to save and send through to next week’s semi-final.
Paralympian Stef, 37, took it on the chin and smiled as she hugged Andy and thanked him for her time on the ITV show.
Dancing on Ice fans were divided about the result and took to Twitter to comment.
One person said: “Doesn’t seem fair that Kye can perfect a routine about 6 times and Stef goes on the first time she performs her skate off routine #dancingonice.”
Another joked: “Kai survives his 50th dance off of the season #doi #dancingonice.”
A third person tweeted: “These judges are definitely not watching what I’m watching #DancingOnIce.”
However, other fans of the show were keen to show their support for Kye.
One tweeted: “Feel for Kye. He’s such a good skater…fearless…but just not getting the votes #skateoff #DancingOnIce.”
And another wrote: “Yessssssssssss come on Kye #DancingOnIce.”
Kye will now perform in the semi-final of this year’s series alongside Brendan Cole, Kimberly Wyatt, Connor Ball and Regan Gascoigne.
Host Phillip Schofield also confirmed that there will be a double elimination next Sunday, meaning that only three pairs will skate in the Dancing on Ice final on Sunday 20 March.
