ITV Dancing on Ice fans furious over Corrie star Mollie Gallagher's score and call for a 'ban'

Dancing on Ice fans were not happy on Sunday evening and called for a ban following the judge's scores for Mollie Gallagher.

The Corrie star skated her heart out on week five of the ITV skating competition dressed as singing sensation Billie Eilish for icons week.

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield presented the show as the contestants paid tribute to some of the biggest names in music.

Former EastEnders star Patsy Palmer portrayed Spice Girls' Geri Horner before becoming the fourth celebrity contestant to leave Dancing On Ice after a skate off with comedian Darren Harriot.

However, fans of the show were not happy when the judges revealed their scores for Corrie's Mollie Gallagher.

The 25-year-old, who plays goth Nina Lucas in the ITV soap, was challenged by Christopher Dean to incorporate the headbanger move into their routine - which she did successfully and was the first celeb of the season to execute such a move.

The move saw Mollie being swung in the air by her ankles with her face inches from the ice by her professional partner Sylvain Longchambon.

Many viewers watched it through their fingers and were super impressed, but were disappointed to see how the judges scored her.

Many took to social media to slam the three 7.5 scores.

One said: "So she literally slays the headbanger, risks her life but 3/4 of the judges think it’s 7.5 worthy. make it make sense dorlin #DancingOnIce."

While one commented: "Uhh mollie should have been getting AT LEAST 8s across the board for that... she skated so well and she did a bloody headbanger!! #DancingOnIce."

The pair were ultimately awarded a score of 30.5, (ITV)

Others called for a ban. @Criticalpete1 tweeted: "Ban the head banger. Only time before someone smashes their head for entertainment. #DancingOnIce."

Another said: "#DancingOnIce I absolutely hate the headbanger. It should be banned. Just too dangerous and not necessary."

While one penned: "@dancingonice I am shocked the headbanger hasn’t been banned yet. I absolutely hate it. It’s an ugly & dangerous move."

Dancing On Ice returns to ITV and ITVX on Sunday.
