Dancing on Ice fans angry over ‘annoying’ fake audience and endless ad breaks

Dancing on Ice viewers slammed the show on Sunday night for its frequent advert breaks and the fake audience used amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Due to the global Covid-19 outbreak, ITV have had to substitute its usual live audiences on its shows for canned laughter and fake audiences – and fans are not happy.

Viewers also bashed the channel for how many advert breaks occurred throughout the viewing of the first episode of this season.

It saw the new celebs be introduced and dance with their professional partners in front of a live audience for the very first time on national TV.

Viewers rushed to Twitter to moan about the fake audience being used instead of real people.

One tweeted: "Fake audience noise is too annoying! Turn it down next week."

A second voiced: "Dancing on Ice please – turn down the canned audience noise, so annoying."

"Why so much constant screaming on Dancing on Ice? Not even an audience so just turn it down a notch! Disjointed show tonight – just felt odd," said another.

Fans also had a good old moan about the advert breaks.

One said: "Why is there an advert after every skate though?"

"ITV is there any need for an advert break every 10 minutes – one dance, break, one dance, break," tweeted another.

Meanwhile, a third viewer said: "No wonder the show is two hours long with all the advert breaks!"

During the show, fans also questioned why dance partners Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean have been socially-distanced while sitting down at the judging panel.

Viewers rushed to Twitter to share their confusion after a video clip was shown of the pair dancing together right at the beginning of the show.

The clip showed them touching each other as they held one another while dancing.

The camera then panned to the dancing duo who were sat in the audience smiling and cheering while being socially-distanced and sat what seemed to be two metres away from one another.
