Why is Holly Willoughby not on Dancing on Ice?
It has been announced that Holly Willoughby tested positive for Covid-19 and had to go into isolation.
A spokesperson for Dancing on Ice said, “Unfortunately, Holly Willoughby is unable to host tonight’s show after testing Positive for Covid-19.
“We look forward to Holly returning for the Dancing on Ice Live Final.”
Philip Schofield had to previously miss the show after he too tested positive on January 31.
How is Holly Willoughby doing?
Willoughbly didn’t post anything on her social media about the positive test.
However, Phillip Schofield posted a get well soon message saying, “Gutted that my mate won’t be with me on @dancingonice tonight.
“Get well soon darlin.”
The producers are expecting Willoughby to be back in two weeks for the final.
Before leaving isolation, she needs to confirm that she has two negative tests.
Some are not even testing positive after five days, so hopefully Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield will be reunited soon for the much anticipated Dancing on Ice Final.
Who will replace Holly Willoughby on Dancing on Ice?
Schofield will be presenting the show on his for the first-time ever.
Schofield will be solo hosting the semi-final which will see Regan Gascoigne, Kye Whyte, Connor Ball, Kimberley Wyatt and Brendan Cole battle it out on ice to reach the final.
Previously, Stephen Mulhern stepped in to replace the presenter when Schofield too caught Covid-19.
Mulhern is not able to do the same though this time as he is recovering from an operation.
