Viewers of Dancing On Ice are fuming after last night's result saw Candice Brown leave the competition - despite being tied with Lemar.

The show, which has returned this year after a four-year hiatus, had its first dance-off last night, with The Great British Bake Off's Candice Brown battle it out with singer Lemar.

Sadly, Candice was sent home - but fans of the show were livid as the judges had all gone to deadlock over who should leave the competition.

Of course, angry viewers took to Twitter to vent their frustrations and confusion over why it was decided that Candice would leave the show despite having a tied vote among the judges.

While the Dancing On Ice team have not yet spoken out about the furor, it could be that Candice and Matt had the lowest amount of votes from viewers too, which is the way it normally works on other shows like Strictly Come Dancing.

But you know, we need to KNOW these things, guys!

Other viewers were just sad that Candice had gone - never mind the controversy surrounding her exit.

The revival of the show proved to be insanely popular for its first episode last Sunday, drawing an audience of 7.5 million - but last night unfortunately saw a drop of over a million people and leaving the show with an audience on 6 million.

We say that - 6 million is still a LOT of people tuning in!
