The popular Holly Willoughby is moving on from Dancing on Ice. Rumour has it that Willoughby is leaving the popular show to host the British version of The Voice.
Although this is yet to be confirmed, Phillip Schofield’s tweet (@schofe), Willoughby’s Dancing On Ice & This Morning co-host, suggests that Holly does have a new project. Just to keep you in the loop, @hollywills won’t be presenting Dancing on Ice due to new commitments @clbeakley will step into the rink”
While this is a great move for Willoughby, it’s a great loss for Dancing on Ice. The chemistry that she and Schofield have is natural and fun. Christine Bleakley has a tough job ahead of her trying to fill Willoughby glamourous gowns and shoes. Although Willoughby does more than just look fab on screen – she lights up the screen with her talent and personality. She’s a natural and very likeable!
Willoughby took to twitter (@hollywills) to wish Bleakley well and express how she feels about her Dancing On Ice experience “Good luck to Christine Bleakley on this years Dancing on Ice. It’s a truely magical show and you will love it. I’ll miss you all very much!”
It’s been a mixed week for Bleakley. She got the role on Dancing On Ice, but she and co-host Adrian Chiles were also fired from ITV’s breakfast show Daybreak after ratings kept dropping. The positive for Bleakley is that she now has a chance to break free from her partnership with Chiles and carve a new career path for herself.
Christine Bleakley tweeted (@clbleakley) about her new job, “Holly is a legend and she’s a tough act to try and follow so feeling really nervous but incredibly excited Xx”
While Willoughby is a tough act to follow, Bleakley will no doubt win the audience over with her charm and wit, and of course will add to the glamour that comes with Dancing On Ice.
Dancing on Ice hits TV screens in January. No date has been announced for The Voice.
