Dancing On Ice Fans Call For Johnny Weir As Permanent Judge Following Impressive Debut

Following American figure skater Johnny Weir’s impressive debut as a guest judge on ITV‘s ‘Dancing On Ice‘ during Musicals Week, fans are now calling for him to become a permanent fixture on the show.

Replacing Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo for the night, Johnny’s intelligent critiques and constructive feedback immediately won over the audience, prompting viewers to demand his retention in the judging panel.

As Ashley announced his brief hiatus to tour with Diversity last Sunday, Johnny stepped in excellently, showcasing his expertise and knowledge in the world of figure skating.

Viewers clamored on social media for Johnny Weir to stay, with praises such as ‘Can we keep Johnny please’ and ‘He’s SO much better than Ashley.’

Johnny, a former contestant on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ in the US, is set to jet off to London for the next show, heightening anticipation for his future appearances on the ice.

With permanent judges Oti Mabuse, Jayne Torvill, and Christopher Dean set to return for the semi-final, fans are eager to see if ITV will consider making Johnny a permanent addition to the lineup.

During the latest episode, soap star Claire Sweeney bid farewell to the competition after finding herself in the skate-off against Lou Sanders, while embodying a burlesque theme on the ice despite a rib injury.

The show also teased a shocking twist with host Holly Willoughby announcing a forthcoming double eviction, adding further suspense and excitement for the viewers.

As ‘Dancing On Ice’ continues to captivate audiences with its celebrity contestants including Ricky Hatton, Hannah Spearritt, Greg Rutherford, Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards, and more, Johnny Weir’s potential permanent role on the judging panel remains a hot topic among fans.

Other familiar faces gracing the ice include Ricky Norwood, Ryan Thomas, Amber Davies, Miles Nazaire, Adele Roberts, and Roxy Shahidi, adding to the diverse and entertaining lineup seen on this season’s show.
