Dancing On Ice skate rivals 'jealous of Jennifer's favouritism'

Exclusive by Clemmie Moodie 12/01/2012

It's just a week into the series – and the blades are already out at ITV’s Dancing On Ice.

Former Brookside actress Jennifer Ellison is at the centre of an extraordinary row, with fellow stars and crew members believing she is getting preferential treatment.

The schedule was altered ahead of Sunday’s first show, giving Jennifer and her partner Dan Whiston an extra week’s rehearsal.

After pro skater Dan suffered a hamstring injury, Hollyoaks star Jorgie Porter was forced to step in – giving her and partner Matt Evers just 48 hours’ preparation.

However, Sugababe Heidi Range was not allowed to switch schedules and perform in the second week, despite her original skating pro pulling out.

Instead, the Liverpudlian found herself in the bottom two, narrowly avoiding elimination.

An insider said: “Jennifer has a big following. Bosses believe she will be a major draw and seem determined to do all they can to keep her in.”

The source claimed that when Dan tweaked his hamstring during a practise session on Thursday producers were “terrified” it would hamper their performance on Sunday.

He added: “As a result they insisted Jennifer be given a bonus rest week and Jorgie kindly offered to swap weeks. But when Heidi’s partner Sylvain pulled out through injury, she requested an extra week to bond with her new pro skater Andrei – and was denied permission.

“Jennifer is very much ITV’s golden girl and it’s not sitting well with everyone else.”

Last night an ITV source said: “All the contestants appreciate the delay to Jen’s performance was unavoidable because of an injury to her partner and there is no ill feeling.”
