DANCING On Ice fans have come out in force to defend Lemar after his elimination – after previously claiming the show was fixed in his favour.
The singer was knocked out of the competition tonight after landing in the skate-off for a FOURTH time – facing off against Donna Air.
After performing their routines, the judges voted unanimously to save Donna, saying that the pair worked better as a team after a bizarre ending of Lemar's routine appeared to see his professional partner Melody La Moal fall on the ice.
However, in dramatic U-turn to previous weeks, viewers have slammed the judges for saving Donna over Lemar, and claim she was "carried through" her skate-off routine by partner Mark Hanretty.
One viewer wrote: "Fuming Lemar is out to Donna that gets carried round and does no single skating!! Judges clearly got their favourites."
"Lemar out on #DancingOnIce, mockery. That other woman spent the whole time being held in the air," added another.
While another agreed and said: "Lemar was cheated out of that dance off! Donna gets carried around that ice & does nothing! #DancingOnIce"
"Absolutely livid that @Lemar has been sent home over @donnaair who was dragged across the ice and did no skating what so ever… #FIX" cried another.
Lemar was a late entrant into the competition but has repeatedly fallen into the bottom two – only missing one skate off during the five weeks the show was on air.
During this week's Love Week, which saw Jake Quickenden again get to the top spot, Donna was criticised by the judges for not letting go of partner Mark during the routine.
Donna and Mark got funky with a hippy performance of Love Shack by The B-52s.
Matching their highest score so far, Donna pleaded with the viewers to vote for them.
However, all the judges complained that Donna was still relying on Mark to guide her around the ice, and encouraged her to stand alone in the future.
Judge Ashley Banjo told them: "I need you to start skating on your own more. When you do that you'll get bigger marks."
Next week is set to get even more tricky for the remaining contestants as Phillip Schofield announced there would be a double elimination.
