Dancing On Ice announced Caprice Bourret and partner Hamish Gaman had “parted ways” at the beginning of tonight’s show. Another couple had to depart as the skate-off saw Kevin Kilbane go up against Lucrezia Millarini, with the latter, unfortunately, losing out. However, many fans disagreed with the judges’ decision to save Kevin and his partner Brianne Delcourt.
Last weekend saw Trisha Goddard become the first contestant to be eliminated after being in the skate-off against ITV news presenter Lucrezia Millarini.
Tonight, the remaining celebrities were back to skate again alongside their partners but it was the turn of Lucrezia and partner Brendyn Hatfield to be sent home.
The star was in her second skate-off alongside ex-footballer Kevin Kilbane, with the majority of judges choosing to save the latter.
However, fans were in disagreement with the judges this evening as many took to Twitter to express their feelings about the result.

She quickly praised her partner Brendyn, saying: “This guy is amazing.”
Viewers also commented on the fact host Phillip Schofield appeared to cut off Lucrezia midway through speaking after her elimination.
It seemed as though the hosts were rushed for time at the end of the show.
One viewer commented: “They couldn’t get Lucrezia off that ice quick enough #DancingOnIce.”
Another echoed: “Phil needs to brush up on his skills of saying sorry we have run out of time. #DancingOnIce.”
It came after fans were left confused after Holly revealed Caprice Bourret and partner Hamish Gaman had “parted ways” at the beginning of tonight’s show.
In a statement to Express.co.uk, ITV – in a similar fashion to Holly’s announcement on air – said: “Unfortunately, Caprice and Hamish have parted ways.
“As you saw in our opening number Hamish remains very much part of our professional team and we hope to have Caprice back on the ice next week.”
Next week will see the remaining contestants return – who will find themselves in the bottom two?
