Dancing On Ice won’t air this evening after ITV announced the show is taking a break.

The broadcaster said it felt ‘prudent’ to give the cast and production team a much-needed rest following illness and injury.

ITV confirmed the show will return next Sunday, on February 28.

In a statement, the TV network said: “Each week our production team and cast have delivered a fantastic show during incredibly challenging times.

“The welfare of all of those involved is important to us and we felt it prudent to take a week’s break at this juncture.

“Continuing to make the best TV for our viewers is of paramount importance to us and we look forward to resuming the competition next week, with the show back live on Sunday February 28.”

The live show tonight has instead been replaced by special Dancing On Ice: The Greatest Show On Ice, which will be shown on ITV at 6pm.

The one-off programme will celebrate the most memorable moments in the show’s history, ITV said.

The move comes after Neighbours icon Jason Donovan missed last Sunday night’s show due to back pain.

He was advised to rest by medical experts.

Denise and pro partner Matt have had to leave the show

Joe-Warren Plant and his professional skating partner Vanessa Bauer also had to pull out after testing positive for coronavirus, as did comedian Rufus Hound.

Reality TV star Billie Shepherd also left the show early after injuring herself in a fall, while actress and singer Denise Van Outen withdrew after she partially dislocated her shoulder during training.

Last week, Amy Tinkler became the latest celebrity to be axed from the show.

The Olympic gymnast, 21, and her professional skating partner Joe Johnson lost out to rapper Lady Leshurr in the skate-off.

Celebrities remaining on the show include radio DJ Sonny Jay, former athlete Colin Jackson and media personality Rebekah Vardy.
