'WHAT'S THE POINT?' Dancing On Ice fans left furious after judges refuse to give out scores in the final

Ice skating fanatics took to social media in frustration as they looked to the judges for guidance

DANCING on Ice fans were fuming after a problematic change to the final's scoring process.

While the final vote is entirely down to the public, fans were expecting to see the judges dish out scores for guidance.

Viewers flocked to social media to express frustration as the judging panel - consisting of Ashley Banjo, Jason Gardiner, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean - only gave constructive comments and refused to dish out score numbers.

One angry fan tweeted: "Why aren't the judges scoring tonight on #DancingOnIce. It would actually be nice to see if they have improved on their previous scores."

Another put: "No scores from the judges? What is the point?"

A third Dancing on Ice fanatic said: "Why aren't they doing scores? So annoying! #DancingOnIce

It comes after professional dancer Matt Evers had earlier revealed that the judges would still be scoring, but that it just wouldn't count towards the final result.

He explained: "Now the twist is you get to choose who wins. So you've got to vote for your favourites tonight.

"Those judges scores are just for guidance this evening so who cares what Jason says."

Last week's semi-final saw fan favourite Jake Quickenden score a perfect 40 mark from the judges.

He came close to missing the final after suffering a painful thumb injury.

Fans were worried the setback would hamper his chances but the singer confirmed he would still skate with 21-year-old partner Vanessa Bauer.

Writing on Twitter on Tuesday, he said: "So I hurt my thumb today had to go for xray and MRI scan but I will [100 per cent] be skating on Sunday, I have not come this far to let a sore thumb stop me! Thanks for the nice messages."
