Dancing on Ice fans were livid when James Jordan bagged a major score in his first week on the ice.
The former Strictly Come Dancing pro performed with Alex Murphy, jokingly to the song I Don’t Dance as sung by Michael Buble.
But fans at home were livid when the dancer’s VT suggested he was struggling on the ice, but when he got to the rink in front of millions of viewers, his powers of performance seemed to perk up as he bagged a whopping 30.5 from the judges.
He even melted the stone cold heart of Jason Gardner, who gave an even higher score than his fellow judges with a staggering score of eight, compared to the two he gave to Aussie soapstar Mark Little.
Jason said: "Finally we have hope! James and Alexandra, that was absolutely beautiful.
"It was debonair, suave and ‘sophistiskated’. There is transference from your dance background into your skating once you’ve mastered the skating."
Ashley Banjo added: "I can’t believe I’m watching this on week one. Yes you have certain advantages that you take from week one, but that’s a different story on ice."
Christopher Dean and Jayne Torvil also spoke out in awe of the dancer, but fans were not impressed at all.
One said: "Absolute fix! James Jordan is a pro dancer for ffs all he had to do is learn to skate & he’s got a high score. You know whose won this already!!!! #dancingonice"
Another said: "James Jordan should never have been on this…. he’s already a professional dancer…. #fix #dancingonice"

A third added: "don’t agree with James Jordan being on dancing on ice, especially having a background as a previous dancer on strictly, he’s already going to have technique behind him all he needs to do is learn to move on the ice # DancingOnIce"
