ITV aired All Star Musicals last night and divided viewers as some claimed the judges ‘robbed’ Barney Walsh of a decent score.
During the programme on Sunday (March 21), Barney – whose dad is The Chase host Bradley Walsh – sang Flash, Bang Wallop, a song from the musical Half a Sixpence.
What score did Barney Walsh get in ITV show All Star Musicals?
The judges gave Breaking Dad star Barney an overall score of 26.
In comparison, Judge Robert Rinder, who sang Be Our Guest from Beauty and the Beast, won with a score of 30.
Also competing on the show were presenter Robert Peston, actress Jessica Hynes, Dr Ranj Singh and EastEnders‘ Luisa Bradshaw-White.
On Twitter, some viewers claimed Barney had, unfortunately, received the hardest song to sing. Others said he had been “robbed”.
What did ITV viewers say?
One said: “They gave Barney the hardest song to sing and a ridiculous dance routine, he nailed it and they still marked him down! Hmm… #allstarmusicals.”
A second wrote: “#allstarmusicals @ITV Barney Walsh or Dr Ranj should have won, they had the best performance, they were insane @DrRanj #barneywalsh.”
They gave Barney the hardest song to sing and a ridiculous dance routine.
A third tweeted: “Barney was robbed #allstarmusicals.”
Another agreed: “Wasn’t he just!”

Someone else said: “Barney Walsh should have been scored higher than what the judges scored him. Dear @BradleyWalsh, do tell #BarneyWalsh we are proud of his performance. #AllStarMusicals @JohnBarrowman.”
A sixth put: “Catching up on this… Rinder gets 30… but Barney is streets ahead and scores less? What’s the point? #AllStarMusicals.”
“Barney was undermarked and should have won,” wrote one. They added: “Although Rob was a close second #AllStarMusicals.”

However, some agreed with the final result, tweeting to say Robert Rinder fully deserved the win.
Just seen #AllStarMusicals a brilliant show again very fun, what was needed right now. I thought Judge Rinder was brilliant a deserved winner, Ranj, Louisa and Barney were good too. I sort of thought Barney may have done better with a song with less noise around him as we (c)
