Dancing On Ice 2014: Sam Attwater blasts show judges over marks

Sam Attwater (Dancing On Ice 2014)

Sam Attwater has become the latest celeb to hit out at the Dancing On Ice 2014 judges.

The soap star claimed that the panel - Robin Cousins, Karen Barber, Ashley Roberts and Jason Gardiner - have been undermarking him.

It follows Sam's appearance in the skate off FOUR times this series having been repeatedly saved by the panel.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Sam revealed he felt he was being undermarked and DOI coach Christopher Dean thought the same.

According to Sam, Chris approached the coaches last week to question them about the marks after Sam failed to match Ray Quinn's perfect 40 points despite an equally flawless and tough routine.

Sam told the tabloid: “There have been times on the show when scores have been given that have baffled me and I’ve thought, ‘I deserve more’.

"There is not enough recognition of how technical things are. After one skate, Chris told me our routine was the toughest of them all.”

Sam's comments echo those of pal Kyran Bracken who was eliminated from the show last week against Sam in the bottom two skate-off.

Speaking before his exit last Sunday night, Kyran complained: “I get frustrated with the judges’ marks because I’ve done things that have never before been done on the show and got no credit."

The rugby hunk explained: “I did a death drop in week two and got a 7.5 from Jason Gardiner.

“But others are doing stuff done every year and getting brilliant marks. So now I think there is no point trying things that are hard or dangerous.”

Dancing On Ice 2014 continues tonight from 6:15PM on ITV.
