Dancing on ice

Hmmmmm well I record this programme and whizz through the bits I get bored with. Now I am not going to mention anyone's weight (I can hardly criticise).

What I am going to have a moan about is the public vote for Gemma Collins.

The woman doesn't skate and makes no attempt to try to do so. She is either static or being held onto by her partner.

In spite of her dire performance the public keep voting her through thereby depriving better amateur skaters from progressing.

I'll probably give up watching if she gets through again this coming weekend.

I too wonder why??
She doesn't skate . She didn't the compulsory moves so why did she get through when two better skaters had to do a skate off
Sympathy vote maybe that will hopefully run its time and she will go

She is such a diva with no talent IMHO

I think it was Joy who said on FB that she is being deliberately kept in to make sure she earns the money. I don't know how true this is or if she really does have a following. As it happened so far the dancers that have gone out are not likely to have improved much more but now all the dancers have a chance of improvement so she should not be kept in. Allegedly she left I'm a celebrity early or some other programme and got fully paid and, I think it is insinuated that she does it for the money so they are making her earn it.

Anybody know any more about this?

I can't bear watching her.

Ann if she was being kept in that would infer the voting was fixed surely?

Answers on a postcard please :-D

I think Joy meant being kept in by voters who don't like her to punish her. :-S

Love the programme, just wish she would get voted off it.

Himself dons headphones when I play the programme as he wishes to protect his eardrums from my shouting at the TV.

They can't hear me I have no idea why I do it lol

She did stand up to Jason so maybe won some votes there but she needs to go

She really can't skate and just doesn't seem to cut it

Why she is still in seems to be an ??

Maybe the public just wants to keep her on cos she has a big mouth!!
