Dancing On Ice fans blast ‘fix’ over Melody Thornton’s ‘unfair’ advantage

It’s only week two, but Dancing On Ice viewers were left fuming as they accused the show of being a "fix" over Melody Thornton’s "unfair advantage.

Tonight, the former Pussycat Dolls star skated with pro skater Alexander Demetriou for the first time.

After performing her routine, she received a high score of 24 from the judges.

However viewers hit out at the fact that she was allowed to be on the show considering her dance experience and friendship with former judge Ashley Roberts.

Viewers flocked to Twitter to hit out.

One tweeted: "What is the point of having a clearly accomplished skater on the show? #melody #dancingonice."
