Dancing on Ice ‘FIX’: Viewers in meltdown as Perri Kiely loses final ‘He was faultless’03/08/2020
Joe Swash and Perri Kiely battled it out in tonight’s Dancing On Ice final as they completed three performances each in the hopes of securing the ITV trophy. After each celebrity performed their interpretation of the infamous Bolero, hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield announced Joe and Alex Murphy had taken the top spot following weeks of hard work.
However, some viewers weren’t too pleased with result and felt the bookies’ favourite Perri was a more worthy winner.
Going into tonight’s final, the Diversity dancer was placed to win with odds of 1/3 while Joe was in second place at 5/2.
Paralympian Libby Clegg trailed behind at 25/1 after finding herself in the bottom two in the semi-finals.
In tonight’s show, all three finalists and their professional partners had to perform two dances.

One shared: “Can’t believe I’ve watched all these weeks just to see Perri get robbed Good for ITV tho…they’ll have Joe presenting EVERYTHING from now on #DancingOnIce #Fix.”
