Dancing On Ice’s Candice Brown has hit back at accusations of her ‘snogging’ her professional skater Matt Evers.
The former Great British Bake Off winner share a kiss on the lips with Evers after they performed a romantic routine to At Last by Etta James on the ITV series.
However, Brown has laughed off suggestions that there was anything more to the moment than a peck on the lips.
She posted a picture on social media of Evers and her partner Liam Macaulay, mocking the accusations that the kiss on the ice amounted to a ‘snog’.
The first episode of the series saw six of the 12 celebrities perform, with Love Island winner Kem Cetinay and reality TV star Jake Quickenden coming joint top of the leaderboard with 20.5 points each for their routines.
However, it was a less successful night for former Great British Bake Off champion Candice Brown, who will take part in the first skate-off of the series next week.
Brown, who won the baking programme in 2016, was the second star to take to the ice with partner Matt Evers.
The TV cook braved a few lifts during the routine, to Etta James’ At Last, although the judges commented that she had been concentrating too hard throughout and that it showed on her face
Gardiner, known for his scathing comments, remarked that Brown’s arms resembled “spatulas”, while Banjo said he can see her potential.
Torvill added: "I'm really impressed that you’re coming out here performing, doing something completely different."
She and Evers will take to the ice against the competitor who receives the lowest score of the night next Sunday.
