OTI Mabuse made a blunder while scoring Ben Foden's debut Dancing on Ice performance.
The judge scored the former rugby star six marks, but the screen below her seat showed a higher score of six and a half.
Once all the judges on the panel had delivered their scores for Ben and dance partner Robin Johnstone's routine, host Phillip Schofield questioned Oti Mabuse over the discrepancy between the score she called out and the one that was displayed.
Oti revealed she got too "excited" over Ben's performance, leading her to accidentally press six twice while inputting her score.
Phillip then explained how the pair's total score would be altered to reflect Oti's intended score.
But 36-year-old Ben joked it was too late, suggesting he should get the higher mark from Oti.
Dancing on Ice viewers flocked to social media to comment on the scoring blunder.
One viewer tweeted: "Oti getting her score wrong and just brushing it off like a queen!"
