Holly Willoughby has Covid and will miss Dancing On Ice semi-final

Holly Willoughby will not host Sunday’s Dancing on Ice semi-final after testing positive for Covid-19, ITV has announced.

In a statement a spokesman for ITV said that the semi-final will be hosted by Willoughby’s co-host Phillip Schofield alone.

“Unfortunately Holly Willoughby is unable to host tonight’s show after testing positive for Covid-19,” the spokesperson said.

“We look forward to Holly returning for the Dancing on Ice live final.”

Last month, Stephen Mulhern replaced Phillip Schofield on the show when the This Morning presenter tested positive for coronvirus.

Sunday’s semi-finals will see the celebrity contestants skate twice and also include a double elimination.

Last weekend Paralympian Stef Reid became the seventh celebrity to be voted off, meaning five celebrities remain – Kimberly Wyatt, Connor Ball, Regan Gascoigne, Brendan Cole and Kye Whyte.
