Dancing On Ice viewers fought after Faye Brookes was “undervalued” by the judges last night (February 28th).
The 33-year-old Coronation Street star made her debut with new skating partner Matt Evers on Sunday as the two Pretty Women performed a routine.
But while the judges seemed pleased with Faye’s performance, fans believed the actress was being robbed.
Dancing On Ice: How Did Faye Brookes Far?
Faye hit the ice and ran to Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison, the theme song from the hit movie Julia Roberts and Richard Gere.
When she attempted the judges’ challenge, the star wobbled slightly but still managed to continue the routine.

Despite the accident, she received a total of 34.5 out of 40 points.
John Barrowman followed her routine, commenting, “I think this partnership will work.
“We see a completely different personality. Keep going. The scores get higher. “
Additionally, Christopher Dean said, “You are fresh and confident.”
What did the viewers of Dancing On Ice say?
The audience found the judges too harsh, despite praising their efforts.
One said on Twitter: “No! I’m sorry Faye deserved more. They always seem to mark them low. She’s an amazing skater and that’s after a week with a new partner! “
Another wrote: “Nothing annoys me more than when @Faye_Brookes doesn’t get the recognition and points she deserves !!”
A third added: “Even though it wobbled in the end, Faye’s spin was way better than anyone else’s. She deserves more. “
I’m sorry, but I’m so sick and tired of the judges who obviously rate certain people every year
In addition, a fourth said, “I’m sorry, but I’m so sick of it that the judges apparently appraise certain people every year. This year’s victim is Faye. What a joke that Colin and Rebecca got higher than them, it’s so obvious they are planning their scores before the show, it’s so fake #dancingonice. “
A fifth complained, “You are sooooo under Faye that it’s awful.”
No! I’m sorry Faye deserved more. They always seem to mark them low. She is an amazing skater and doing that after 1 week with a new partner !! #DOI

Does anyone else think Faye is always marked below or just me? #DancingOnIce

Meanwhile, others claimed that Faye was “miles ahead” of her co-stars.
One wrote: “Faye didn’t have her strongest dance tonight, but she’s still miles ahead of the rest and her scores have been ridiculous. I’ve never seen them marked fairly before. “
In addition, a second agreed: “What does Faye actually have to do to do @AshleyBanjo, @JohnBarrowman and @torvillanddean? I honestly don’t get it.
“Faye’s skate was way better than any of the other contestants, all of whom got a 9.5!”
Faye Brookes ‘Spark Favoritism Row’
Meanwhile, the former Corrie star was reportedly accused of favoritism by her competitors.
According to The sun, Faye and Matt worked with Dan Whitson, Creative Director of ITV.
As a result, her co-stars believe she was given an “unfair advantage”.

A source said: “Faye and Matt had never worked together before, so they needed extra time on the ice, but others in the competition believe she was given an unfair advantage.
“By working with Dan, Faye and Matt were able to choreograph even more adventurous and daring routines. To some, it feels like she’s getting special treatment from the bosses because she’s the favorite to win. “
