Dancing on Ice viewers all have the same complaint about the launch show

DANCING on Ice viewers all made the same complaint tonight as the series returned to ITV.

Fans tuned in to watch six celebrities taking to the ice in week one including Happy Mondays dancer Bez, and Coronation Street star Sally Dynevor.

One person scoffed: "@dancingonice @ITV #dancingonice celebrities who the hell are they. I recognise sally from Corrie. The off button will be pressed. Celebrities 😂😂😂😂😂"

Another sniped: "Love it when they say …. 'is best known for' …. in other words here is someone else almost all of you has no idea who they are!"

And one more moaned: "I don't know who half these Celebs are."

Professional dancer Brendan Cole was the first celebrity to take to the ice, scoring a huge 30.5 with "serial finalist" skating partner Vanessa Bauer.

The 45-year-old was close to tears after he finished the performance to Black Betty by Ram Jam adding: "There was a lot of pressure coming in opening the show, I could feel my heart… I thought you could hear it through my microphone."

Head judge Christopher Dean, who scored him a 7.5, said: "That is the best first dance I have seen by a contestant in 14 series."
