Dancing On Ice's Rebekah Vardy defended by furious fans after judges under-mark her AGAIN

REBEKAH Vardy's fans have rushed to defend the star as her Dancing On Ice performance was under-marked by the panel again.

The 38-year-old returned to the ice this week with a slick performance based on jukebox musical The Boy From Oz classic When I Get My Name In Lights.

Rebekah donned a blue, diamond-encrusted dress for the number, nailing the judge's challenge move and commanding the ice.

But the judging panel, consisting of professional skaters Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean, dancer Ashley Banjo and actor John Barrowman, were not impressed.

WAG Rebekah, who is married to Leicester City striker Jamie Vardie, was awarded a score of 25 out of 40 for her performance.

Both John, 53, and Ashley, 32, gave the star 6.0, with the actor dubbing her performance "stale".

Fans were outraged by the low scores and immediately took to Twitter to defend her, saying she should be "proud" of the routine.

"I think the judges are wrong," wrote one woman. "Some of the comments was ridiculous and unfair! Should be proud, Rebekah!"

"She really smashed that, the scores should have been much higher than that," agreed another.

"Definitely was worthy or a way higher score," a third chimed in. "Rebekah has improved so much and did great in the judges challenge."

"Why did they mark her so low?" added one man, with a fan replying: "Sixes? The judges are blind."

Last week, Dancing On Ice viewers watched the moment Rebekah slashed her partner's face open with her skates.

The former I'm A Celeb star made her figure skating debut last Sunday alongside her pro partner Andy Buchanan.

Andy was attempting to flip the mum-of-five when the shocking accident happened, leaving him with a large gash on his face.

As he rushed off the ice, Becky, 38, looked very concerned and told the camera, "I can't describe the feeling of having hurt him."

"It's ok, this is what we do, it's dangerous. She's wanting to push it and so am I," Andy said on Sunday's show.

The pair bravely performed despite Andy's gruesome injury and earned average reviews from the judges.

Before her debut, Becky wrote about how "terrified" she felt on her blog , but that "bizarrely it’s not the actual skating that terrifies me".
