Dancing On Ice 2013 duel: Luke Campbell unhappy with Samia Ghadie pairing

Luke Campbell (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Dancing On Ice 2013 contestant Luke Campbell isn't happy at being pitched against Samia Ghadie in tonight's duel show.

Tonight's third live show will see the ten remaining celebs go head to head in pairs, with the judges making one half of each pair immune from the public vote.

But Luke reckons it's unfair that he's been pitched against Samia Ghadie, as he has to do a lot more than the Corrie star.

“It’s tough for me going up against Samia because I’m having to do all the lifts which her partner Sylvain (Longchambon) is so good at," he said. “I don’t know how the judges are going to score it because I am doing more.

“I do think it’s harder than ­going head to head with another guy, ­because then you are both on the same level playing field.”

Dancing On Ice judge Karen Barber admitted it would be harder for the guys who are going head t head with the girls.

She said: “The men going up against the women has been a long-running argument.

“I would probably agree it is harder for the men, especially early on because they have to support and lift their partner.”

However she added: “The pairings have been decided on who was next to each other on the leader board to try and make it as fair as possible.”

Dancing On Ice airs on ITV tonight.
