Dancing on Ice bosses ‘brace’ themselves as show thrown into chaos due to Storm Eunice


Storm Eunice caused carnage across the UK on Friday, bringing with it winds in excess of 95mph for some coastal regions. People were also urged to stay inside due to the red weather warning issued by The Met Office. However, it has since been reported that the storm has caused chaos for Sunday night’s Dancing on Ice.

It has been claimed ITV bosses fear the show may not go ahead due to the bad weather.

It was also reported that staff are concerned their production cabins on-site may get damaged or even blown away by the storms.

Producers are worried the programme fronted by Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield may be pulled from the TV schedule like I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! was last year.

Storm Arwen caused £1million worth of destruction to production areas when it hit in 2021.

Confirming the news, a Dancing on Ice spokesperson said: “Unfortunately, Vanessa Bauer is unable to skate this weekend after testing positive for COVID-19.

“We look forward to Vanessa returning to the competition soon.

“Brendan Cole will still perform in this Sunday’s show and will be partnered with professional skater Brendyn Hatfield.”

Expressing his disappointment, Brendan continued. “I am absolutely gutted that Vanessa is unable to skate this weekend.”

The dancer added: “I know she would have put together another fantastic routine.

“However, and with Vanessa’s blessing, I’ve been given an amazing opportunity to create something fantastic for Musicals Week with Brendyn.

“He’s an exceptionally talented skater and I have no doubt we will be able to create something really special for the show!

“I can’t thank him enough for stepping in.”

Dancing on Ice returns on Sunday at 6pm on ITV.
