Popular TV couple rumoured to replace Holly and Phil on Dancing on Ice

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby presenting Dancing on Ice has been cast into doubt amid the rumoured ‘feud’ between the former This Morning stars.

Phillip has stepped down from This Morning after releasing a statement confirming his exit on May 20. Now, there is doubt in whether he will return for the next series of Dancing on Ice.

Phillip has hosted the ice skating show alongside Holly from 2006 to 2011, who then returned in 2018, and Christine Lampard from 2012 to 2014. The Mirror reports that an ITV spokesperson has confirmed that no decisions about Dancing on Ice have been made.

However, This Morning's Rochelle Humes and her husband, JLS member Marvin have been rumoured as the favourites to replace them. The married couple have presented BBC's The Hit List together and Rochelle is often a stand-in on This Morning.

The couple have also presented on This Morning together in the past. According to, Rochelle is 6/5 to host Dancing on Ice while Marvin is 7/1.

Fans have been speculating and think Phillip might stay on the ice skating show, whilst Holly steps down and remains at This Morning.

Rochelle recently paid tribute to her former This Morning co-star on Twitter while many other ITV stars have remained silent on his departure. She shared a number of pictures of them together on the show.

In her caption, she wrote: "I've proudly been part of the This Morning family for almost 10 years and over the last few, it has been an absolute pleasure learning so much from you. Thanks for all the lessons - you are a fountain of knowledge and laughter."

Meanwhile, an ITV spokesperson has addressed speculation on Phillip's future on Dancing on Ice. "Dancing On Ice isn’t due on ITV until January 2024 and the series is not currently in production," they told

"Further announcements" about the show, including the presenter line-up will be announced in "due course".

In the statement announcing Phillip's exit, ITV confirmed Phillip's relationship with the broadcaster would continue.

Kevin Lygo, ITV’s Managing Director, Media and Entertainment said: “We look forward to continuing our relationship with Phillip starting with The British Soap Awards in June and a brand new peak time series to come.”
