Holly Willoughby dazzles in plunging gown at Dancing on Ice photocall before show return

Holly Willoughby dazzled in a red, off-the-shoulder dress ahead of Dancing On Ice returning to our screens this weekend.

In the photographs from the ITV show's photocall, Holly posed with her hand on her hip in a stunning floor-length gown paired with silver strappy heels.

To complete the look, the mum-of-three wore her hair down in her signature blonde bob, with a pair of silver dangling earrings.

Another snap saw the blonde beauty, 40, pose next to her co-host and long-time friend, Phillip Schofield, 60.

Phil looked smart in a black top, black trousers and a camel-coloured double breasted blazer.

As well as Phil and Holly returning to host the well-loved skating competition, ice skating champions Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will be back, alongside fellow judge Ashley Banjo.

John Barrowman will not be back, however, and has since been replaced by Strictly Come Dancing’s Oti Mabuse.

Addressing John’s exit,Phil said on This Morning: “I adore John and obviously we will miss that larger than life personality but in every panel you want to make sure each area is well and truly serviced.”

“Oti will definitely be the one to pick them up on their dancing and their dancing skills and that’s really important,” he added.

Speaking about the other judges on the panel and the series this year, Phil explained: “So, you’ve got Ashley [Banjo] with the overall showbiz nature and difficulty with the moves, obviously Jayne [Torvill] and Christopher [Dean] who have ice skating sewn up, and then you’ve got Oti who knows exactly what’s required.”

He continued: “We really like her as well, she has been on This Morning a lot so we know she will be a great part of the team.”

Oti was announced to be replacing John last year, and is now expected topotentially not make a return to Strictly.

Discussing the exciting gig, Oti said last month: “As a professional dancer I have always had so much respect for the skating professionals on Dancing On Ice.

“It is an exceptional skill that is also so beautiful to watch. I’m feeling really enthusiastic about joining the panel alongside the legendary Torvill and Dean and Ashley Banjo.”

"I can’t wait to see the celebrities thrive as they learn how to ice-skate and to champion the professional skaters as they create incredible choreography,” she added.
