Dancing on Ice fans 'surprised' as Maura Higgins eliminated in 'unfair result'

Dancing on Ice aired another exit on Sunday night, as Love Island 's Maura Higgins was sent home in a surprise

Dancing on Ice aired the latest elimination on Sunday night, as week seven drew to a close - but not everyone was happy with the result. Maura Higgins and Libby Clegg were in the bottom two, facing each other in the dreaded skate-off. They and their professional skating partners Alexander Demetriou and Mark Hanretty joined them as both couples performed one more time. It was then down to the judges to decide which couple to send through to the next show, next weekend. As both final performances came to an end, they gathered with hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield. It's then that judges Ashley Banjo, John Barrowman, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean had their say. As they revealed their decisions one by one, it was confirmed that Maura had two votes and Libby had one - with the result laying with Christopher. But with him being Head Judge, his vote was the overruling decision and changed the result enitrely. It meant Love Island star Maura was going home, with Libby back for another week. Some fans deemed this rule "unfair", despite it having been in place for the past two series, with many "surprised" by the exit. Maura broke down in tears as she learned she was out of the competition, barely able to speak to hosts Holly and Phillip. She confessed she "really wanted to stay", as her skating partner praised her. A tearful Maura then headed back onto the ice to say her farewells to her co-stars. Viewers took to Twitter over the exit, with one fan saying: "Fuming at that decision on #DancingOnIce Maura was WAY better in the dance off ?!?!! Torvill and Dean can do one." Another said: "Maura deserved to go through beautiful skate she was robbed." A third added: "Seems very unfair tonight's result. Maura should definitely have gone through." Dancing on Ice continues next Sunday at 6pm on ITV. Read more: Irish Daily Mirror
