Holly Willoughby returns to TV to host Dancing On Ice with Stephen Mulhern next month | Ents & Arts News

Holly Willoughby will be back on television next month when she hosts the new series of Dancing On Ice with Stephen Mulhern, ITV has said.

Mulhern replaces Phillip Schofield, who has presented the ice skating competition alongside Willoughby since 2006.

Schofield left ITV earlier this year after admitting to an “unwise but not illegal” relationship with a younger male colleague on This Morning.

Willoughby, who first worked with Mulhern 20 years ago, has been off air since she left This Morning in October following 14 years on the sofa.

The pair appeared on Saturday morning children’s show Ministry Of Mayhem, later renamed Holly & Stephen’s Saturday Showdown.
