Dancing on Ice's Liberty Poole crashes while being lifted mid-routine

Liberty Poole had a less than perfect performance on Dancing on Ice this evening after she crashed onto the ice during her routine.

The 22-year-old Love Island star was skating with her partner Joe Johnson to Flo Rida’s Right Round when she tumbled onto the ice.

Liberty was being lifted by Joe, with the pair spinning on the ice, when the crash happened, reports TheMirror.

The crash took place near the end of the dance, prompting host Philip Schofield to say: “We thought you were home and dry.”

Liberty replied: “What happened? That hasn’t happened before, but sometimes it just happens when it’s never actually happened before.”

After managing to recover quickly and finish the routine, Liberty received a score of 28 out of 40 from the judges.

It is the pair’s highest score in the competition.

Fans of the show took to Twitter to support Liberty after her slip up.

Jodi (@jodielliman) said: “I feel like all I’m doing is moaning about this show. But yes there was a fall, but Liberty’s done SO much better this week, nailed that step sequence! @dancingonice sort it out.”

Craig S (@craggsy2) added: “Liberty & Joe, great stuff. Got up and finished.”

But the support from fans was not enough and Liberty was forced to dance again in the skate-off and was eventually voted off the show.
