Holly Willoughby has tipped her friend Myleene Klass to win Dancing On Ice when it returns on ITV.
The 39-year-old host of the skating show, alongside Phillip Schofield, has spoken out ahead of the launch show on Sunday and has said to win the trophy then you will have to beat Myleene.
After a troubled build-up to the start of the new series, in which coronavirus restrictions have paid havoc with the celebrities training schedules with their professional skate partners, the time to impress is almost here.
Holly has cited that Myleene, 42, being a musical performer will give her an edge, especially as she’s become a dab hand on the ice.
Holly concluded: “It’s January, it’s been rubbish, it’s been horrible. We need a bit of escapism.”
Singer Jason Donovan, 52, is the bookies’ favourite, closely ahead of former Coronation Street star, Faye Brookes, 33.
The judging panel will once again be headed by skating legends Jayne Torvill, 63, and Christopher Dean, 62, with Ashley Banjo, 32, and John Barrowman, 53, also on hand to give critique.
With strict coronavirus guidelines in place, there will be glass screens separating the judges and prerecorded dances will also be used.
