Holly Willoughby stuns in figure-hugging red gown as Dancing On Ice returns after week-long break due to injuries
Holly Willoughby pulled out all the stops as Dancing On Ice returned to our screens after a week off due to show injuries and contestants being forced to leave.
The This Morning star, 40, looked sensational as she showed off her incredible figure in a fitted backless red gown.
The blonde beauty made sure all eyes were on her as she showed off the floor-length dress, which featured a gorgeous bow at the back.
Holly captioned the snap: “Well we made it! Tonight on @dancingonice we are off to the movies… see you on @itv at 6:15pm… Dress by @sassiholford jewellery by @boodlesjewellery shoes by @sophiawebster.”
It comes after ITV confirmed that the current series of the show would be cut short and the final will be moved forward by one week after seven stars, five of which were celebrities, had no choice but to drop out of the series.
It means the fan-favourite skating competition will run one week shorter than previous seasons, with only five pairs currently left standing. The final will air in just two weeks time.
An ITV spokesperson said in a statement: “ITV have taken the decision to move the final of Dancing on Ice forward by one week.
“The competition’s final will now take place on Sunday 14th March.

“Our production team and cast have delivered a fantastic show during incredibly challenging times.
“Continuing to make the best TV for our viewers is our top priority and we look forward to the rest of the series, on air from this Sunday at 6pm.”
Neighbours actor Jason Donovan is the latest celebrity who pulled out of the show after struggling to recover from injuring his back.
While the 52 year old did not suffer an injury through training, he took the advice of the show’s medical experts to take it easy.
Jason is the fifth star to have been forced out of taking part on the programme alongside Billie Faiers, Rufus Hound, Denise Van Outen and Joe-Warren Plant.
Denise, 46, was the first celebrity to leave the ice after suffering a nasty injury, where she partially dislocated her shoulder in rehearsals.
The Mummy Diaries star Billie, 31, withdrew in early February after a nasty accident during training left her with a concussion.
Comedian Rufus, 41, quit a few days prior to Billie after testing positive for coronavirus.
Emmerdale’s Joe-Warren, 18, also tested positive for coronavirus and left the show alongside his professional skating partner Vanessa Bauer, 24.
Professional skater Hamish Gaman was also forced to quit to show after injuring his finger.
