Dancing On Ice’s Graham Bell ‘threw screaming tantrum backstage’ after exit

Dancing on Ice star Graham Bell reportedly screamed and swore after being eliminated from the show.

The former Olympic skier, 55, was eliminated from the ITV skating competition alongside his professional skating partner Karina Manta on Sunday.

The pair had been in the skate-off against WAG Rebekah Vardy and her professional skating partner Andy Buchanan.

After being eliminated by the judges, Graham said: “I felt that we had a lot more to give.”

However, it is now reported that he had much more to say about being eliminated and is apparently involved him blaming Katrina for the result.

A source told The Sun: “It’s the worst sportsmanship in the history of the show. Everyone was stunned.

“Graham was screaming their routine was ‘f ***i ng s**t’ at Karina.

“He did it in front of everyone. No one could believe it.

“He said the judges felt it was too simple and basic, and it was her fault.”

The source described the moment as Graham showing his “true colours”.

It hadn’t been the easiest of rides for Graham on the show, as he lost his original professional skating partner Yebin Mok was injured in rehearsals and had to leave the competition.

Speaking earlier today about her exit from the show on Lorraine, Graham told the presenter: “That was my worst fear, that I’d injure my pro.

“I trained with Yebin for two months, and we had a really close working relationship, I was on the phone to her all the time, and i just wanted to stay on the show so she could come back and I could skate with her.

“The fact that Yebin couldn’t come back and I couldn’t skate with her was just heartbreaking.”
