Dancing on Ice viewers all have the same thought as Bez stumbles through first performance

DANCING On Ice viewers' fell head over heels with Bez from Happy Mondays as he took to the ice for the first time.

Bez and professional partner Angela Egan skated their way into the second week of Dancing On Ice 2022 after a charming performance complete with dancing watermelons.

The 57-year-old percussionist, dancer, DJ and media personality became the first celeb to be fitted with a helmet to protect his head while skating.

Bez won over viewers with his simple, but charming routine that saw him descend onto the ice atop a pair of giant maracas.

The musician became famous as the Happy Mondays dancer and percussionist where he danced on stage with the maracas.

Wearing the custom watermelon helmet, Bez shimmied and twisted his way around the ice with a big smile on his face.

His simple routine earned him the lowest scores of the night, a total of 12.5 but Bez was happy with the result.

"I thought it would have been much lower than that," he admitted to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

Bez also revealed he was wearing padding all over his body, including a back brace after taking multiple tumbles in training.

"I've been doing some spectacular falls, crashing into the ice. But I wear a helmet so nothing too serious. I've actually got a little bit better this week. I only fell over once yesterday, so I am improving," he explained.

His Happy Mondays' bandmate Shaun Ryder was in the audience to cheer on his mate and gave his thoughts on Bez's performance.

"What, on this show? Not in a million years! I've seen him on ice at the bottom of his garden on his pond. I think he could win this," he said from the live studio audience.

Even though his routine was the least technical, fans watching at home loved his enthusiasm and called for Bez to win this year's series.

"Bez is finally giving me another Todd Carty moment and I’m here for him to get through week after week," wrote one fan on Twitter.

Another added: "#Bez is my winner, absolute tonic."

And a third commented: "Bez for Prime Minister. Padded up with a melon helmet and Shaun Ryder shouting CALL THE COPS from the audience is the best thing I’ve ever seen."

Bez and Angela were the first couple named safe in this week's show, with Coronation Street's Sally Dynevor landing in the bottom and will face the skate-off next week.
