Axed Dancing On Ice contestant Heidi Range has hit out at show judge Katarina Witt, branding her comments "unfair".
Speaking after her exit on Sunday night, Sugababe singer Heidi admitted that she took the remarks from the former Olympic champion personally.
Katarina had accused Heidi of relying on her professional skating partner Andrei Lipanov to lift her across the ice to make up for a lack of skating ability.
“It was a point she made every week and I thought it was unfair because it was never made with any of the other girls," Heidi said yesterday.
She added: “None of the other girls was told: ‘Well, he puts you in your lift.’
"I took it quite personally because she kept saying it every week. I worked really hard on them. It got to me.”
