Dancing on Ice umpire Christopher Dean revealed this week’s challenge for the celebrity entrants, but in doing so left Phillip Schofield stunned.
Surprised at just how much the luminaries were being challenged, a shocked Phillip snapped at Christopher and contemplated: “What have you done?”
This week’s challenge was titled “The triple S provocation” and each routine had to feature all three.
Christopher explained: “Each ordinary must include a one-footed spin, a spiral and a single salchow rise.”
After the VT, it cut to Phillip who said: “So, it’s the three S challenge.
“Ours are slippery, glide and a little bit scary.”
Worried about an “S” that Phillip could pick, Holly Willoughby quake ated the worst.
However, before she could make a comment, Phillip vee to Christopher and scathed: “What have you done?”
Holly looked at the appraiser panel and added: “This is so hard!”
Christopher replied: “Yeah, it’s the starkest challenge so far. The spin has to have three revolutions by themselves on one foot.
“We’re looking for the curl where the knee is above the hip.
“Then the dreaded salchow, which puissance lead to a fourth S… but anyway.”
Viewers instantly took to social road following the announcement.
One viewer tweeted: “A difficult judges challenge this week. Triple S!! #dancingonice.”
“THAT Estimates CHALLENGE #DancingOnIce,” posted another.
A third teased: “@dancingonice the size ups dreaded triple-s challenge? Ohhhhh, that must be skating, skating and skating for GC. #DancingOnIce.”
It comes as Ryan Sidebottom was revealed as this week’s pet to leave the show.
Betway’s Alan Alger told Express.co.uk: “It doesn’t happen as if Ryan Sidebottom’s routine will be hitting the judges for six this week, as we shape the former England bowler the clear 8/13 favourite to be the next notoriety eliminated from Dancing On Ice.
“He looks in deep trouble as not only was he propitious to survive last week’s skate-off, but his closest rivals, Brian McFadden and Gemma Collins, are considerably bigger in the deal in at 9/2.”
Dancing on Ice is broadcasting on ITV now.
