On Dancing On Ice, Faye Brookes and Hamish Gaman were in tears as the judges criticised their routine.
What happened with Faye on Dancing On Ice?
Faye and Hamish dressed up as Prince William and Kate Middleton during their wedding day for their routine.
Judges Ashley Banjo, John Barrowman, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean heavily criticised the performance, telling Faye and Hamish they expected so much more from the pair.
Listening to the comments, both skaters had tears in their eyes as they insisted they had tried their best but would try harder.
What did Dancing On Ice fans say?
On Twitter, a number of viewers said they thought the judges’ comments were too harsh.
One said: “Hamish and Faye are both crying, that’s uncalled for #dancingonice.”
A second tweeted: “My heart is breaking for Faye and Hamish, the fact that they’re both crying after that score and criticism is horrible! No matter what happens they will always be my favourites, every week they give it 110 per cent.”
The fact that they’re both crying after that score and criticism is horrible!
A third put: “What the hell did I just witness? What an insult to Hamish and Faye. #DancingOnIce.”
“She’s such a stunning skater and she killed it,” wrote a fourth. “I hate how much pressure they’re putting on her all the time #dancingonice.”
“#DancingOnIce Faye and Hamish crying, ugh, they’re so undermarked every week,” argued a fifth.”
“So harsh,” agreed a sixth, adding: “They are enough to bring anyone’s confidence down. Ashley needs to go back to Diversity.”
Others called the criticism “rude”.

The judges are absolutely awful to Faye and Hamish. It’s not even constructive anymore it’s just downright rude. #DancingOnIce

#DancingOnIce seriously give faye and hamish a break. Bought to tears 2 weeks running with overly harsh criticism, far different from encouraging critique. Wouldnt be surprised if they stopped even trying now! Rude and not needed 😡🤬 @FayeBrookeFansx @HamishGaman

However, some agreed with what the judges had to say.
One said: “Right, we all know, I think Faye is incredible and my GAL but that looked too easy? Hamish, up your game, son #dancingonice.”
Another tweeted: “Not Faye’s best performance, but it was rather safe again. #DancingOnIce.”
Someone else agreed: “I thought so too.”

ED! contacted ITV for comment.
What did the judges say?
Ashley, John, Jayne and Chris awarded Faye and Hamish 7.5, 7.5, 8.5 and 8.5 respectively.
Ashley told them: “I keep asking the same thing, and that’s to excite me… you had a stumble, didn’t you, and the sequence was out of sync… it’s not clicking.”
Chris, meanwhile, said: “I cannot deny your skating quality… [but] you make it look easy, which sometimes, people translate into looking too simple.”
John offered: “I thought you rushed… you are a better skater than this.”
And Jayne commented: “You lost synchronicity with each other towards the end. We know you can do more, give us more, please!”
