Hollyoaks’ Stephanie Waring and Good Morning Britain weatherman Alex Beresford have also been hit by the flu.

The other six celebrity contestants will have to wait until the following week before they skate for the judges, however, they’ll still take to the ice in a special group number.

Dancing On Ice bosses have revealed they’ve lined up some of the world’s best skating pros that’ll take part in a very special performance later in the show.

Dancing On Ice 2018 launches this Sunday on ITV at 6pm.
