Torvill and Dean apologise to Dancing on Ice fans after performance sparks fury

Dancing on Ice judges Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean were forced to take to social media to apologise to fans after their performance sparked backlash from some disgruntled people.

During the live shows of the previous weekend, the skating duo used a drone during their stunning routine, which was done to the Beatles' hit song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.

This bold move sparked frustration from fans as some said they were suffering from motion sickness due to the constant movement of the equipment.

Taking to social media the following week, Torvill and Dean posted: "Hello everyone. Apologies for those who felt uncomfortable watching the drone number.

"We have always wanted to push boundaries with skating and technology. A new frontier for us.

"But just to reassure everyone our next routine is back to DOI stationary cameras classic T&D."

The pair were quickly inundated with messages of support from viewers after their apology, as one said: "Wonder if there will ever be something that people won’t complain about.

"What will it be next? Water being wet? I thought the skate was great. Also found the drone bowing with you at the end cute."

Another added: "I found that with the drone we couldn't see you two really skating, your faces, your movements etc. For me personally I want to see everything.

"You two are amazing and with you getting on a little, each skate is an honour to watch. We are so blessed every time you skate."

A third agreed: "No need to apologise for pushing boundaries and trying something new.

"I personally preferred the guy with the camera following you on ice. You are the still the best part of Dancing on Ice."

Rugby star Ben Foden became the first star to be dropped from the show after a skate-off against Lorraine presenter Ria Hebden.

Dancing on Ice airs on Sundays at 6pm on ITV.
