Fans watching Dancing On Ice were left sobbing as Libby Clegg took to the ice tonight and earned two 1os.
However, some were left angry after she scored two 10s, a higher mark than Ben Hanlin.
The semi-final’s big challenge was a solo skate, which for visually impaired Libby was an extra challenge.
Her partner, Mark Hanretty, was on the edge of the rink to make sure she didn’t skate outside its parameters.
After two consecutive skate-offs, Libby didn’t let it get her down as she came out and gave a confident performance for 45 seconds before Mark joined her to complete the routine.
She earned herself 10s from both Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, and 9.5s from Ashley Banjo and John Barrowman.
She even got a “FAB-U-LOUS” from John!
Fans at home were totally bowled over by her performance, crediting her bravery and her achievement.
Some even said they were in ‘crying’ watching her.
I’m fully crying, Libby you are incredible🥺 #DancingOnIce

However some were not impressed that she scored higher than Ben Hanlin, who had opened the show with an impressive performance and hadn’t received a 10.
Many suggested the judges were patronising her.
I’m sorry but what am I seeing right now ? Libby scoring higher than Ben ? Why is she always overmarked it’s rediculous deffinately not worth a 10 let alone 2 😡😡#dancingonice

I never complained about Libby being overmarked bc she never was
BUT TONIGHT was something else those 10s were not deserved I’m sorry
I can see what they’re doing, pushing her up the leaderboard bc they know she’ll be in the skate off and they want her in the final #DancingOnIce

I’m sorry, nothing against Libby and it is amazing what she does but HOW can Jayne and Chris give her 10 when they gave Ben a 9.5 and Ashley give her a 9.5 when he only gave Ben a 9?? It’s ridiculous!! #DancingOnIce

Libby’s scores are just patronising… she said at the start she didn’t want to be scored based on her disability, yet that’s why she’s getting high scores #dancingonice not saying she’s not good, but not 9.5s and 10s

I respect Libby and how an amazing she is for skating blind but the judges are doing her no favours over marking her! She said she doesn’t want to be treated differently but the judges are with their scoring #dancingonice
