Dancing On Ice is facing a 'fix' scandal after the controversial skate battle raised some eyebrows on fuming fans' faces.

Viewers were quick to hit out at the popular TV dance show, as many branded it as "scripted" and "staged" after Perri Kiely's performance tonight.

Tonight's dances saw all celebrities take part in a skate battle which saw them all take to the ice at the same time.

They would then be awarded extra points depending on how they had been placed by each of the judges.

However the leaderboard didn't end up changing too much afterwards as Lisa and Tom came fifth, Joe and Alex fourth, Libby and Mark third, Ben and Carlotta second and Perri and Vanessa first.

Fans were left fuming after Perri's performance

Fans were left furious claiming that it was predictable that Perri would win, and took to Twitter to voice their stern opinions.

One viewer wrote: "The Worst Performance By Perri All Series...Its A Massive Fix."

Another penned: "Would have liked to have seen Perri in the bottom but that won’t go along with the script of him winning..."

A third raged: "FIX FIX FIX FIX FIX... @perrikiely did nothing special in that...he never does lifts. Those points were decided before they even skated. It's a disgrace!! #dancingonice"

he show has been branded a 'fix' by viewers

An tonight's show descended into chaos after Christopher Dean was forced to intervene in an on-air spat between John Barrowman and a number of his co-stars.

Libby Clegg and her professional partner Mark Hanretty had skated to I Wanna Be Like You from the Jungle Book for tonight's Movie Week.

The pair scored nines across the board after a risky neck spin and difficult slide - that is, apart from John Barrowman, who gave them an 8.5.

John was rather critical as he explained his reason behind the score: "I didn't like the bits on the floor, for me it didn't add anything special to it, but I thought the neck spin was awesome.

"It's the semi-finals next week and we're looking for spectacular."

Some viewers believe that the show is fixed for Perri to win

However Ashley Banjo interrupted as he said: "If that isn't spectacular I don't know what is.

"It's easy to stand up and carry on but they didn't, they did something different.

"I'm in awe of you Libby."

Professional skater Mark agreed and hit back at John, who irritably snapped: "Don't mix my words!"

A frustrated Chris was up next to critique, however, and turned to John to ask: "Are you finished?!"

After Libby and Mark left the ice, the judges still continued to bicker as host Phillip Schofield wryly remarked: "It's all kicked off, it's all kicked off!"

*Dancing On Ice returns next Saturday at 6pm on ITV
