Rugby player Gareth Thomas should have been allowed to compete in the climax of Dancing on Ice, boxer Luke Campbell has said.
The former Wales star was forced to quit the contest in last weekend's semi-final after suffering from motion sickness while using the high wires to perform a flying routine.
The public vote was cancelled and Campbell, gymnast Beth Tweddle and actor Matt Lapinskas all went through to this Sunday's final by default.
But Campbell said he believes Thomas should have been allowed a further try.
"They should have put us all in the final, because it's unfair really because of the flight factor," he said. "It's a part of the show obviously, but it wasn't the element of actually skating."
Campbell added: "So I reckon they should have brought four of us into the final and let the voting fire away. You always want to feel like you've really earned that position. From not knowing what went on, yeah you're through, but you still want to feel like, 'Yes, I got it'."
Dancing on Ice finalist Luke Campbell has admitted the show puts pressure on the relationships of contestants.
Beth Tweddle has split from her boyfriend of three years since the series began, and fellow finalist Matt Lapinskas has split from his former EastEnders co-star Shona McGarty.
Campbell, 25, from Hull, has two sons with his childhood sweetheart Lynsey Kraanen, but has been spending most of his time training with professional skater Jenna Smith for the ITV show.
Speaking ahead of Sunday's final, Campbell said: "You spend a lot of time with your [skating] partners, so obviously it will put a strain on your relationship. Everybody's a human being. But it's just a game show at the end of the day and that's just it."
Gymnast Beth Tweddle told ITV's Daybreak how keen she is to try her hand at other sports, including bungee jumping, snow boarding and skiing, now she has won an Olympic bronze medal in the uneven bars.
