    Fans call it a fix after Strictly’s Brendan Cole gets huge first week score

    Fans took to Twitter to label the show a fix as Strictly professional Brendan won huge first week scores.

    The professional dancer was the first celebrity to take to the ice, scoring a huge 30.5 with “serial finalist” skating partner Vanessa Bauer.

    The 45-year-old was close to tears after he finished the performance to Black Betty by Ram Jam adding: “There was a lot of pressure coming in opening the show, I could feel my heart.

    “I thought you could hear it through my microphone.”

    Head judge Christopher Dean, who scored him a 7.5, said: “That is the best first dance I have seen by a contestant in 14 series.”

    New judge Oti Mabuse, who gave her fellow ex-Strictly dancer an 8, said: “You were explosive, passionate and the two of you had chemistry.”

    Panellist Ashley Banjo added: “If that is where you are starting… I know you are going to be trouble.”

    Who was Sean Rice?

    Sean Rice was a former figure skater famed for his appearances on ITV's Dancing on Ice.

    Born in Ontario, Canada, in 1972, he went on to become a two-time Canadian pairs bronze medallist with partner Jodeyne Higgins, and four-time Canadian fours champion.

    He retired from competitive skating to tour on Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines before joining Dancing on Ice in 2011.

    During his first appearance, he was partnered with TV presenter and journalist Angela Rippon but was knocked out in the early stages.

    The following year he was paired with British Olympic alpine ski racer Chemmy Alcott, who was the 11th contestant to be eliminated.

    The couple enjoyed eight dances on the show, including one to Pilot's Magic, with an average score of 20 out of 30.

    Oti Mabuse breathes new life into the judging panel

    The judging panel has welcomed Oti Mabuse as its latest addition, following ex-judge John Barrowman's departure.

    Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti has already had her fair share of judging experience after her stint on The Greatest Dancer.

    The 31-year-old star has had an incredibly busy few years, appearing as a panellist on The Masked Dancer in 2021, and both choreographing and guest judging on RuPaul's Drag Race UK last year.

    Now, the stunning dancer has been signed up for Dancing on Ice, making her debut on the panel this weekend.

    Fans and critics have been eagerly awaiting the South African star's first appearance, and unsurprisingly, she went down a hit.

    Oti wowed tonight in a bold asymmetric gown and matched her huge glittering platform heels to the bright red dress.

    She coordinated her jewellery, opting for ruby and diamond earrings and a statement necklace, as well as a bold red lip to finish off the look.

    Liberty Poole strips to lace underwear in fake tan demonstration ahead of show

    The Love Island star applied her fake tan in a video ahead of her debut in the skating competition.

    The 22-year-old Brummie won an army of fans when she made it to the final week of Love Island last summer with her ex-boyfriend Jake Cornish.

    She's now built a loyal following and regularly flogs products to her 1.5million Instagram followers.

    And she said she has no problem showing off her sex appeal on ice — though she admitted that show judges Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean have had to give her tips on becoming more flexible.

    She told The Sun: “The Dancing On Ice costumes are revealing but feel modest compared with the bikinis I was in almost 24 hours a day on Love Island.

    “I’ve tried on one so far and I loved it, it was so pretty. I can’t wait for everyone to see it.

    “My first routine is pure independent woman, really sassy vibes, and I’ve loved throwing my personality into it and becoming a sass queen.

    “I think that’s my secret weapon on the show.”
