Controversial DOI moments – Holly Willoughby cleavage, score fury and tense rows

Former Love Island winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu faced over 100 Ofcom complaints after her debut Dancing on Ice performance.

The star took to the ice in a bejewelled leotard that showed off most of her bum, and despite wearing a nude coloured bodysuit underneath, viewers thought it was far "too racy" for the family show.

Even though viewers were shocked that Dancing on Ice would even consider airing the footage, it isn't the first time the show has aired moments that rubbed fans up the wrong way.

The Daily Star have had a look through the archive and found some of the most controversial and complained-about moments before Ekin-Su's ranchy skate this season.

Rita Ora's performance after breaking lockdown rules

Back in 2021, The Masked Singer judge Rita Ora found herself in hot water with the public after she took to the Dancing on Ice stage to perform her hit single, Bang Bang.

It wasn't her outfit or vocals that upset viewers, but the fact that Rita had the cheek to show up at all after facing backlash for breaking the strict lockdown rules put in place during the height of the Covid pandemic.

Before her performance, the 32-year-old had been papped during an "illegal lockdown party" she threw for her 30th birthday.

Consequently she was faced with a £10,000 fine and has said she wishes it "had never happened".

Gemma Collins vs Jason Gardiner

TOWIE star and self-professed diva, Gemma Collins wasn't too keen on comments made by judge Jason Gardiner after her performance on the ice when competed in the show back in 2019.

Jason, who was known for his harsh critiques, didn't hold back, stating that she was “all over the place."

Gemma hit back, accusing Jason of selling stories to the press and added that if that hadn't happened, she wouldn't have been "so upset this week."

Jason denied the claim and said that he'd sought legal advice over the damage to his reputation. He is no longer a judge on the show.

Viewers were 50/50 over the debate, with Gemma's outburst garnering 50 complaints, while Jason's behaviour brought in 33.

Holly Willoughby's pink gown

Fans were less than pleased with co-presenter Holly Willoughby's sheer pink gown, which some thought was "too sexy" for the family show.

Holly hosted the show alongside co-host Phillip Schofield in a plunging pink dress which, despite hitting the floor in length, showed off too much cleavage for the pre-watershed viewing.

It isn't the first time the 38-year-old's outfit choices have pulled negative reviews from Dancing on Ice viewers, when she wore another bright pink with a sweetheart neckline, one person tweeted: "The producer should have told Willoughby to change that dress. It is not suitable for a family tv show at 6:30pm on a Sunday!"

Over-generous scoring

During the final in 2020, where Libby Clegg, Perri Kiely and Joe Swash were the remaining contestants battling it out for the trophy, viewers couldn't help but notice lazy and generous scoring from the judging panel.

The three celebs all earned top marks, with neither topping the leaderboard as they all had equal points. Host Phillip Schofield made a joke about the perfect tens all round for the contestants but fans vowed to boycott the public vote should it continue.

Joe went on to win the series with his professional skate partner, Alexandra Schauman.
