Dancing On Ice star viewers said Joe-Warren Plant was “underrated” by judges Ashley Banjo and John Barrowman.
The 18-year-old Emmerdale star hit the ice with skater Vanessa Bauer for Musicals Week, where she appeared on a song from Hamilton.
The couple scored an impressive 30 out of 40 – the best marks on the show.
However, some viewers felt that the actor should have received higher grades for his performance.
Ashley, who scored a seven for the pair, said, “You are both so brilliant and I was so excited to see you two with Hamilton.

“Hamilton is creative and innovative and I thought this was a little safe for you as a performance piece.”
Meanwhile, John Ashley agreed and tagged Joe at seven.
He commented, “The characterization was completely wrong. This is not a song where you smile through the whole thing. “
Christopher Dean and Jayne Torvill gave Joe an eight, however.
What did Dancing On Ice viewers say about Joe-Warren Plant?
One said on Twitter, “I don’t know what performance Ashley and John Joe saw was brilliant.”
A second commented, “The more I think about John Barrowman’s comments on Joe, the more annoyed me … the entire line that connects to Burr through Hamilton is less talked about, SMILE MORE #DancingOnIce.”
Also, a third tweeted: “Ashley and John should have given Joe #DancingOnIce 8.”
A fourth added, “Joe was so so good !! Wow!! He deserves to be at the top of the leaderboard !!
The more I think about John Barrowman’s comments on Joe, the more it annoys me
“I’m not sure what Ashley and John are up to, I thought it was great. Such a technical skate has done well. “
Meanwhile, others praised Joe for skating alone.

One person commented, “I liked Joe’s performance and found that he was good at skating and not clinging to his partner like some of the others. #DancingOnIce. ”
Also, a second wrote: “I don’t know how much more Joe could have done not to be on the safe side. I will not have to agree with the judges on this point. “
What did Joe-Warren say?
Joe shared a moment with Vanessa on Instagram as he thanked fans for their support.
He also wrote: “Except for the end product of today’s skate, but at least this time I stayed on my feet! @vanessabauer_skates did a great job with the choreography. I’m sorry I couldn’t play them to the best of my ability, but we’re moving!
“Until the dance week! Thank you to everyone who voted for us! “
Joe added, “It means a lot to me and Vanessa to know that we have so many people out there who have our backs and who put down roots for us!
