Dancing On Ice hit by ‘favouritism’ row as stars given ‘preferential treatment’

Some stars on Dancing On Ice are reportedly not happy that other skaters are enjoying easier routines.

It is claimed that Colin Jackson, Faye Brookes and Jason Donovan have been given "preferential treatment" which suits their backgrounds.

Ex-Coronation Street star Faye, 33, danced to Swan Lake last week – despite previously having had formal ballet lessons.

Athlete Colin, 53, and professional skater Klabera Komini performed a samba after showing off his skills before on Strictly Come Dancing.

Soap legend Jason, meanwhile, was told to do the Tango and performed to Here Comes The Rain Again by Eurythmics.

He also appeared on BBC show Strictly where he danced the tango three times.

That has put noses out of joint and The Sun claims that some of the others stars are reportedly not best pleased.

A show source said: “The trio seem to have a huge advantage going into this week.

“It’s not gone unnoticed by some of the celebrities and their partners and people have been discussing whether they’ve been given favourable treatment.

“Skating is a hard thing to learn, but nailing a performance is made much easier if you’ve had a load of prior training in advance.”

Daily Star has approached a representative for Dancing on Ice for comment.

Meanwhile, Dancing On Ice fans rushed to social media to say Matt Richardson's exit was unfair after he was axed from the show after stepping in for Rufus Hound.

Many said it was totally unfair to not let him have a weeks' grace after being rushed through the door.

One angry viewer tweeted: "So out of order he has done one bl**** week! He shouldn’t be in the first vote off everyone has had weeks on Matt! Fixed so stupid!"

Another fumed: "They should have held the votes off until next week then added them together as giving Matt one show was ridiculous, how was he suppose to compete against Colin who has had about 10 weeks more training?"

Dancing on Ice continues on Sunday night on ITV
