Dancing On Ice fans divided over Libby Clegg’s solo skate

Some were in tears

| Updated:

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.

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.
