The problem with having a line-up filled with celebs who can actually stand on the ice as opposed to wobble, is that the skate-off is sure to depend on the mood of the public and not the skills on display.
This was immediately highlighted in week one when Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter was sent packing as the audience vowed "no more drama!"
It is a shame the promising competitor was partnered with her best friend's ex as it no doubt ultimately lead to her departure.
Week two was no different as Sam Attwater had to fight for his place in the competition and leave his fate at the mercy of the judges.
Personally I think the DOI viewers were slightly nauseated by the overly cute marriage themed routine by the actor and his real-life fiancée.
Put it away guys, no-one wants to see that.
This week Zarrah Abrahams found herself in the skate-off and while she may have had the relief of knowing her place was safe as she faced off against Todd, she was no doubt wondering what she had done wrong in losing the support of the public.
Maybe everyone is simply too good and unfortunately she did not make a big enough impression in a show filled with lifts, turns and super sparkles.
Do the headbanger Zarrah, the audience loves it!
The recent unpredictable skate-offs are not only a sign of things to come, but they will most definitely prove to be even more shocking, because, let's face it, someone has to go.
Not Ray Quinn though. He looked like he was dancing on air.
Suzanne Shaw has her eye on the prize and Hayley Tamaddon may just surprise us, but who is to say the voting public won't decide to give them an early exit simply because they don't like their costume.
Or maybe they'll give Beth Tweddle the boot because they think she has had enough athletic success in recent years - it could happen.
As the wise and wonderful, non-Dancing On Ice related, Louis Walsh once said - no-one is safe!!
He may have said that more than once...
