Dancing On Ice 2020’s first live show saw two of the contestants fall on the ice.
Magician Ben Hanlin almost ended up on the ice during Sunday night’s live show, while former chat-show host Trisha Goddard also took a tumble.
Ben Hanlin, 33, was one of the first to take to the ice during Sunday night’s first live show of 2020 Dancing On Ice.
Teamed with professional skater, Carlotta Edwards, the pair skated to Evanescence’s Bring Me To Life as they added a little magic to their performance.
Having skated well, Ben shocked ITV viewers as he fell during the last moment of the routine.
After Carlotta travelled through his legs, Ben went to pose on the ice, but slipped, leaving Carlotta cringing nearby.
In the end, Ben managed to get his footing and didn’t end up on the ice.
Even with the slip, Ben still managed to get a good score, and jokingly added to the judges that the slip shouldn’t count as it was technically after the music finished.
Following Ben’s performance, Trisha, 62, also took an unfortunate tumble at the start of the routine, landing on her hands and knees on the ice.
However, the chat-show legend got up and continued her skate, with the judges applauding her effort to recover.
At the end of the performance, Trisha told hosts Holly and Phil, that she was “angry” at herself for the fall.
However, fans have backed both Trisha and Ben despite their slips.
