Dancing On Ice stars have reportedly forced bosses to splash out on luxury hotel living arrangements after they refused to stay at a Holiday Inn.

The stars rehearse all day on Sunday, which means they need to stay close by, so bosses put them up in hotel rooms for the night.

The celebrity contestants taking to the ice rink include singer Cheryl Baker, former Great British Bake Off champion Candice Brown, Love Island victor Kem Cetinay and Coronation Street actors Antony Cotton and Brooke Vincent.

The new series has seen Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield return as presenters, while the judging panel consists of former Olympic skating champions Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, choreographer Jason Gardiner and Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo.

After gaining the attention of just a pair of fellow contestants, she swiftly recovered and returned to her feet, but the red-faced Hollyoaks star was fully aware that she'd been caught on camera - and immediately took to Twitter to poke fun at herself.

However, the only touchdown the Eagles had was through running back LeGarrette Blout who had 9 carries for only 19 yards. As the final minutes fell, Eagles fans could not get over the critical final moments as they watched with anticipation.

As Ashley began to speak, Jason instead spoke back to Holly, saying: 'Because it's week one, that's why I'm giving her information!'

Holly's co-host Phil jumped in and told him: "Don't you snap at my girl!"

He said: "I'll always defend Holly, but she'll always defend me". "Don't you snap at her!"

In a statement, ITV said: "We can confirm that Matt Chapman has left the show, and wish him all the very best and look forward to him reporting at ITV Racing at Warwick this weekend".
