For the past three weeks, Lemar has found himself in the Dancing on Ice skate off.
And for the past three weeks, he’s had to perform exactly the same ‘save me’ skate routine – a performance to Grenade by Bruno Mars. But that’s about to change.

- Corrie’s Antony Cotton fractures multiple ribs in painful Dancing on Ice accident

RadioTimes.com understands that the rules have been amended so that should Lemar land in the bottom two for the fourth week on the trot, he will perform a different routine to a different piece of music. However, it will most likely be a skate that we have already seen him perform over the three weeks of DOI.
A source said: “Each couple prepares a save me skate. If they are in the skate off multiple times they can decide to change this to a previous routine.”
Which is probably just as well, as viewers were getting a little, um, irritated by the repetitive performance…

Seriously?! Lemar getting saved is ridiculous. He’s done the same routine 3 weeks on the run for the skate off. It’s not fair that he’s got away with it. Totally should have saved Perri and Hamish @dancingonice

Originally the idea for Dancing on Ice was that all of the celebrities would have one song and dance which they would perform if they found themselves in the bottom two. However, it seems as though no one banked on a single celebrity landing in (and surviving) three skate-offs in a row.
Dancing on Ice airs 6pm on Sunday 4th February on ITV.
