Furious Dancing On Ice fans convinced one star is 'always undermarked' by judges – do you agree?

DANCING On Ice viewers have rallied behind Connor Ball who they think keeps getting under marked by the judges.

The Vamps star, 25, has fast become a fan favourite not only for his stoicism in the face of ongoing injuries, but also for his skills on the ice.

Against the odds, injury-prone Connor Ball made it to the semi-finals – after he managed to stay on his feet for his entire routine.

Connor and partner Alexandra Schauman surprised fans with a quirky routine to the song Cecilia by Simon and Garfunkel.

They pulled off the fun dance during the show dedicated to figure skating legends and DOI judges, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.

He was told by judges they'd "never seen him like that" and praised him for trying something new.

But Ashley Banjo admitted the star's injury in his legs from the previous week's show may have held him back.

Overall the pair scored 35 with Ashley and Oti Mabuse giving them 8.5 and the skating legends giving 9 each.

Fans watching at home were very unimpressed and argued Connor was deliberately being undermarked.

"People don’t give connor enough credit for the effort he puts into this, he’s the only contestant left who doesn’t have some sort of dance/sporting background, no matter what happens tonight i’m so proud of him for coming this far!!" complained one fan on Twitter.

Another added: "When Regan stumbles its character building. When Connor is brought down by his partner, he is docked a whole point. What am I not seeing? Connor's skate was beautiful tonight + he was undermarked."

And a third wrote: "Connor is always so relentlessly undermarked every single week it's infuriating !"

Connor revealed on Sunday he had to undergo treatment for a nasty cut on his leg – which made host Holly Willoughby want to "throw up".

In the previous week's live show, Connor crashed to the ice with his partner Alexandra Schaumann during their pirate theme dance.

The musician was left with a gory gash after the tumble, with Dancing On Ice fans getting a glimpse into the chaos after he came off the ice.

Medics rushed him backstage with cameras showing him getting 19 stitches in his shin – a Dancing on Ice record.

"I was lying there in my boxers and a pirate wig," Connor said before his performance this week.

Paralympian Stef Reid ended up leaving the competition on Sunday as Phillip Schofield said that not one, but two pairings will be sent packing next week.
