Dancing On Ice will not air this weekend as show takes week off to allow the cast and crew ‘to rest up’… after four stars dropped out and Jason Donovan injured his back

Dancing On Ice will not air this weekend. 

The ITV skating show has taken a week off to allow the cast and crew to ‘recharge and rest up.’ 

Oh no! Dancing On Ice will reportedly not air this weekend

An ITV spokesperson said: ‘ITV have taken the decision to pause Dancing on Ice this week and there will be no live show on Sunday 21st February.

‘Each week our production team and cast have delivered a fantastic show during incredibly challenging times.

‘The welfare of all of those involved is important to us and we felt it prudent to take a week’s break at this juncture.

‘Continuing to make the best TV for our viewers is of paramount importance to us and we look forward to resuming the competition next week, with the show back live on Sunday 28th February.’ 

In place of Dancing On Ice this weekend a special entitled Dancing On Ice: The Greatest Show On Ice will be shown on ITV at 6pm on Sunday. This one-off show will celebrate the most memorable moments in the show’s history.

Dancing On Ice will be back, live on Sunday 28th February. 

A source told The Sun: ‘Everyone’s just been working really hard to put on a brilliant series.

‘The production team has been amazing working around new protocols and working around the pandemic which is ever-evolving with new variants and such.

‘This break will just allow the cast and crew the time to take a breath. Everyone gives it their all and just wants the show to be amazing for viewers at home so a week to recharge and rest up before coming back will be great.’
