Robert Rinder denied he was “throwing shade” at the Dancing On Ice judges on the show on Sunday, but he had to call out some of their comments.
He wasn’t happy with the feedback given to contestant Lady Leshurr after her latest performance.
Judge Rinder backed the rapper over her epic performance, while the star admitted she had made a number of slips or mistakes in the routine during the live show.
That said, viewers still enjoyed the performance and Robert was with them – showing his support for her with a customised t-shirt.
But the judges were divided over the routine, with some arguing it lacked character.
“What Leshurr did was remind us all just as she does in her music, that she can be funny, humorous and poetic and be exactly what we need right now.”
He went on: “That little bundle of explosive joy and happiness, so well done, that’s why I am supporting her.”
Many fans of the show backed this, taking to Twitter to confess they too believed Lady Leshurr deserved higher marks and feedback.
Dancing On Ice airs Sundays at 6pm on ITV.
