After being axed from Daybreak earlier this year, things started to look up for Christine Bleakley in 2012, as she landed herself a presenting role on Dancing on Ice.
However, her debut on Sunday night's show was not well received by fans, who have labelled the 32-year-old as "bland and rigid".
Christine joined co-host Philip Schofield, replacing former presenter Holly Willoughby, who left the show this year to present BBC One's new talent show, The Voice.
But fans of Dancing on Ice are now calling for Holly's return, after deeming Christine not relaxed and natural enough for the show.
One viewer expressed their opinion on Twitter, posting:
"After watching Dancing on Ice last night Christine Bleakley has the warmth of a cold tap when it comes to presenting."
Although some Twitter fans did praise her first appearance on the skating reality show and it is thought that the negative reactions came from Holly's fans.
A statement from ITV said that the company had had very positive feedback about the new look show, including the new presenter.
The other new additions to the judging panel, Pineapple Dance studio star, Louie Spence and Katrina Witt, were reportedly both very well received by the audience.
