And in fact it's absolutely fair because he was allowed to stay in the competition at the point where he would have not competed one week and had a bye the other. Joe is now in the same position.


Rufus missed two weeks on the trot and was already replaced by Matt Richardson unlike Joe. It's clear that they wanted Joe back and the week's break affords them the opportunity.

A much better put together clip show so far than the Strictly ones were. And didn't realise it was Cheggers who knocked out Pamela Anderson.

For a moment there I thought 'I didn't know there was a fight between Cheggers and Pamela Anderson…'!

Really enjoying this for a clip show. Shows how well done the early series were, not only provided lots of the iconic moments but the set, panel, format, etc. is so much slicker in comparison.

Absolutely. It used to feel like a show - now it feels like a few individual performances thrown together between some links and ads.

The new set has always felt smaller and two things I noticed tonight which I think add to that feeling is firstly how dark it is compared to the predominantly white sets of the earlier run, and secondly how it seems to lack any height - which I think is due to the super long video wall making it look far shorter than it actually is.

I still think Robin Cousins, Jason Gardiner, Nicky Slater, Karen Barber and another judge eg Emma Bunton, were a far superior judging team than what we have now. The old studio looked far superior in every way, in terms of size and appearance - additionally, showing the crowd which added to the atmosphere, rather than a gimmicky video wall. Plus, there were far more overhead shots or shots from the side & above which look a lot better than the floor set trundle cams and the cameraman on skates as of the present day.

I hope that ITV have reflected over the last week and even more from creating the clip show, that Dancing on Ice of old was so much better than it is now.

The set, graphics, titles, music, judges and atmosphere was so much better.

Jason Donovan has withdrawn due to his back injury.

So with Joe-Warren Plant back in the competition but Jason withdrawing, we are back in the same position we were last week. I would assume that if one more couple is forced to withdraw, another week will have to be chopped off

I think they should cut another week just to be on the safe side.

Agreed, show one of those film premieres they have.

Apparently they made three ‘Greatest Show on Ice’ specials, so they could show another of those if they cut the series short by a week.
