9th March 2022

DANCING on Ice fans have claimed that one professional skater has an "incredibly unfair" advantage over the others after being paired with the "best dancer".

Viewers of the ITV show think that Vanessa Bauer has been given the best celebrity.

The German pro, 25, has been performing alongside former Strictly star Brendan Cole since the show started in January.

New Zealand ballroom dancer Brendan joined Strictly when the show launched in 2004, and left 15 years later.

Over the years he's appeared in BBC's earlier show Come Dancing and also placed third for Latin American at the UK Closed Champions in 2003.

So many fans think that Brendan's dance background has given Vanessa an advantage.

One fumed on Twitter: "Why does Vanessa the professional skater always get the professional dancer in the group 🤨 she always has that advantage lol."

Another said: "Bored seeing Vanessa at the top of the leader board. The show is fixed to always give her good partners. So unfair."

Vanessa joined the show in 2017 and was partnered with X Factor star Jake Quickenden.

They managed to win the 10th series.

Then in 2018 she was partnered with Love Island's Wes Nelson – and managed to place second.

The following year she danced with Diversity dancer Perri Kiely and ended up as runner-up.

The theme was Torvill and Dean, with the pair skating to Puttin' on the Ritz, Diversity star Ashley told them: "So effortless. Sometimes I wish I had a 11. That's how good it was.

"One of my favourite routines we've ever had on the show."

But viewers at home weren't quite as impressed as Ashley.

One wrote: "It’s ridiculous how high they score Kimberley when she skates on her own for a max of 3 seconds per performance when everyone else does so much more lone skating."

And another said: "I love watching Kimberly but she skates on her own for a few seconds in each routine so those 10's are not fair #dancingonice."
