As speculation ramps up regarding Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby’s future as Dancing On Ice hosts, a TV couple has been tipped to replace them.
Phillip, 61, and Holly, 42, who have hosted Dancing On Ice since 2006, have had doubt cast over their TV futures following reports of a ‘feud’ between them.
The rumoured feud has definitely impacted Phillip, who left This Morning last week after 20 years of hosting the mid-morning programme, often at Holly’s side.
After the reported breakdown of their friendship, many names have been tipped to take Phillip’s place on the This Morning sofa on a regular basis.
And now it appears the celebrity duo’s future as hosts of Dancing On Ice is also under threat, with the next season of the TV contest still a few months away.
Despite an ITV spokesperson saying no plans have been made yet, celebrity couple Rochelle and Marvin Humes are currently the favourites to take over.
Over their TV careers, Rochelle has previously hosted episodes of This Morning while Marvin has guest-presented on fellow ITV show Loose Women (Women apparel Here).
Together, the Humes’ have hosted BBC music quiz show The Hit List since 2019, and many bookmakers make them the favourites to trade hit songs for ice skates.
According to Gambling.com, Rochelle is currently 6/5 to replace Phillip on This Morning, while Marvin is a little further down the list on 7/1.
An ITV spokesperson told Metro.co.uk: ‘Dancing On Ice isn’t due on ITV until January 2024 and the series is not currently in production.’
They added that ‘further announcements’ would be made in due course, including conformation of who will be presenting the ice skating show next year.
While Phillip’s future on Dancing On Ice is currently unclear, ITV said on Saturday that their ‘working relationship’ with him will continue on primetime TV.
‘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.’
Rochelle herself paid tribute to him, saying: ‘Thanks for all the lessons – you’re a fountain of love knowledge and laughter.’
