Dancing On Ice judge Oti Mabuse left Phillip Schofield very confused after giving Ben Foden a slightly higher score than she meant.


Oti was back on the panel alongside Jayne Torvill, Christopher Dean and Ashley Banjo to judge six new celebrity contestants.

Up first was Ben Foden, who performed a high-energy routine to Ricky Martin’s hit Livin La Vida Loca with partner

But when it was time to give her verdict, Oti’s screen showed a score of six point five.

She had to clarify what she meant to host Phillip, after he quizzed: ‘Oti can you clarify your score? You said six, but you got six point fix [written down].’

The judge replied: ‘I wanted to put six,’ with Phillip reassuring her this would be correct.

Fans luckily saw the funny side of the blunder, after Oti said she got ‘excited’ after his performance.

One fan commented on Twitter: ‘Oti pressing the wrong score I love her #dancingonice.’

‘Not Oti messing her score up #DancingOnIce,’ added a viewer.

Another said: ‘Oti getting her score wrong and just brushing it off like a queen #DancingOnIce.’

Dancing On Ice continues next weekend at 6.30pm on ITV.
