ITV has given Dancing on Ice fans their first look at the new hosts of the show which returns for a new series next weekend.

Former This Morning presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were hosts of Dancing on Ice in 2023. 

The pair have been hosts of the show since its return on ITV back in 2018, after a four year break.

One or both of Willoughby and Schofield has hosted every series of Dancing on Ice since it first started back in 2006.

ITV gives first look at new hosts of Dancing on Ice 2024

There is set to be a slight change to the hosting roles on Dancing on Ice in 2024. 

It was revealed in December that Willoughby would return for another year. 

This will mark her first television role since she stepped down from This Morning after 14 years back in October (2023).

Willoughby is set to be joined on Dancing on Ice in 2024 by a new co-host, Deal or No Deal star Stephen Mulhern who will replace Schofield.

Schofield stepped away from ITV in 2023 after it was revealed he'd had an affair with a younger male colleague on This Morning. 

Mulhern is no stranger to hosting duties on the show having filled in for Schofield, alongside Willoughby, on the ITV skating competition in 2022 after he tested positive for Covid-19.

The new line-up also marks a reunion for Willoughby and Mulhern after they first worked together on Saturday morning children’s show Ministry Of Mayhem 20 years ago.

The show was later titled Holly & Stephen’s Saturday Showdown.

ITV's Head of entertainment commissioning, Katie Rawcliffe, upon revealing the new hosts said: “Holly and Stephen are two of our best loved presenters, so reuniting them 20 years after they first appeared on screen together to host Dancing On Ice marks the start of an exciting year for the show.”

Just days out from the start of the new series of Dancing on Ice, ITV has released the first image of the "dazzling" new hosts - Willoughby and Mulhern - together.

ITV posed the photo on X (formerly Twitter) with the caption: "Our dazzling hosts, @hollywills and @StephenMulhern are ready for an icy winter."

Willoughby is pictured wearing a red dress while Mulhern is in a dark navy suit.
