In 2021 Holly’s DOI wardrobe shocked viewers and led to over 300 Ofcom complaints. Her nude plunging gown from the launch episode kicked off the furore. 

The £6,240 couture dress by Dany Atrache from his Fall/Winter 2020-2021 collection, sparked criticism for some viewers, with one tweeting at the time: ‘Why does Holly wear that type of dress on a family show?’

Another said: ‘Why doesn’t Holly dress appropriately for being at an ice rink? What a totally inappropriate outfit!’ 

New judge Oti Mabuse matched Holly in the glamour stakes at Wednesday’s photocall, wowing in a sparkling mini.

This year’s celeb contestants will make their debut on the ice on the live launch show this Sunday, with ITV hoping there will be less injuries than last year’s chaotic series.  

The 2021 series saw stars Denise Van Outen, Billie Faiers and Jason Donovan all forced to withdraw following injury.

In 2021 contestants were forced to form a ‘bubble’ with their partners due to Covid restrictions and it was filmed without a live audience.

Both reserve contestants had to be used for the first time in the show’s history as three celebrities were forced to withdraw and two tested positive for the virus.

Denise, 47, sustained an injury in the second week after she suffered three bone fractures and a partially dislocated shoulder.

Billie, 31, became the second to withdraw from the competition as she sustained a head injury during training, while Australian actor Jason, 53, was also forced to leave due to a back injury, in week 6 of the show.

He said: ‘Last year practice got pushed – squeezed – whereas this year the celebrities have gone through the process of getting introduced to the ice longer.

‘They have a period with a coach, then they have a period with their partners, and so I think they’re pretty well established into what they’re doing now. So from an injury point of view I believe that they’re ready to go.’

The 2021 show was full of difficulties and was forced off the air at one point, causing Phil, 59, and Holly to turn to sipping on G&Ts in the final ad break of the series.

Holly recently revealed: ‘Last year because of Covid we weren’t allowed a wrap party so I snuck in two of my kids’ water bottles with their names on.’

She went on: ‘Nobody could see what was inside, and I filled them up with gin and tonics, one for Phil and one for me, and in the last ad break before the end, I was like, “we can bring out the gin now.”‘   

‘We both sat there and had a gin and tonic. We don’t do this on every ad break but for the final there was no wrap party and after the last series we all needed it.’ 

The new series of Dancing on Ice starts this Sunday at 6.30pm on ITV.
