Dancing on Ice presenter Holly Willoughby has been forced to pull out of tonight's show (March 13) after contracting Covid-19.

The news was confirmed on the show's official Twitter page with no mention of a replacement for the usual host just yet.

It read: "Unfortunately, Holly Willoughby is unable to host tonight's show after testing positive for Covid-19.

"Tonight's #DancingOnIce Semi-Final will be hosted by Phillip Schofield and we look forward to Holly returning for our Live Final @hollywills @Schofe."

Holly isn't the only presenter to have needed to take time out this series after catching the nasty virus, with her so-star Phillip Schofield also needing to isolate just weeks ago.

While Phil was busy fighting fit, his role was backfilled by television personality and Saturday Night Takeaway star Stephen Mulhern – who proved to be popular with fans of the show.

Taking to Instagram at the time, Phillip told his followers: "Sharing two positive lateral flow tests, Phil wrote: "Did two tests to be absolutely sure.

"Sorry Dancing On Ice. Have an amazing show Stephen Mulhern it's so much fun."
