Dancing On Ice hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield have confirmed the show will be back as planned next Sunday, but their line-up confirmation confused some viewers.

The show did not air live this week, with no contestants taking part and the show taking a break.

With so many celebrities and skaters having to quit or take time out due to injuries or isolating amid the coronavirus pandemic, ITV decided to take a week off.

Now, Holly and Phil have echoed ITV’s reveal that the show will be back on air on Sunday February 28.

With a week to go, the duo revealed this was the case and that the show was going to be better than ever.

Confirming it was Movies Week, Phillip and Holly voiced a teaser trailer to reveal what was in store.

As some of the contestants were shown rehearsing, Holly said: “We’re back as the competition continues.”

She and Phil then announced the returning stars on the line-up, amid reports that one star could make a comeback just weeks after quitting.

Emmerdale’s Joe-Warren Plant and pro partner Vanessa Bauer were forced to pull out from the hit ITV show after testing positive for coronavirus.

Amid recent reports they could be back next week though, fans are now wondering if Holly and Phil have denied this.

The line-up included Lady Leshurr, Sonny Jay, Rebekah Vardy, Jason Donovan, Colin Jackson and Faye Brookes.

But Joe-Warren was nowhere to be seen, with many predicting this meant he would not be back after all.

One fan tweeted: “Hmmmm so Joe Warren wasn’t mentioned at the end of the show… Does that mean he isn’t coming back after all?”

Another said: “Sorry but surly Vanessa and Joe should be allowed back next week they only missed on week and out off isolation now.”

A third agreed: “joe and vanessa should be allowed back next week!!! come on.”

Dancing On Ice returns Sunday at 6pm on ITV.
