Dancing On Ice viewers said Joe-Warren Plant should have been on skate-off after falling during his performance.
On Sunday night’s show, the 18-year-old Emmerdale actor fell during his routine with professional skating partner Vanessa Bauer.
Joe and Vanessa ran from the Jonas Brothers to Sucker and got 25 out of 40 points.
After his performance, Joe said of the fall, “I couldn’t tell you [what went wrong].
“I literally thought I was doing everything perfectly and then I just landed on the floor and I don’t know what happened.”

Vanessa added, “It was also his first fall of the day. It actually has to fall at least 20 times a day, so … “
Judge Ashley Banjo revealed that he would have given Joe one more point if he hadn’t fallen.
What did Ashley say to Joe-Warren Plant?
He said, “If it’s a trip, that’s one thing, but a fall is a fall. For me, I take a full point off. But let’s get past it because you skate so effortlessly. “
The other judges also praised Joe for his performance.
I literally thought I was doing everything perfectly and then I just landed on the floor.
At the end of the show, the audience voted to save the couples from the first skate-off.

Lady Leshurr had collected 25 points for her first appearance on the ice at the beginning of the program.
