Libby Clegg will no longer be performing on tonight’s instalment of Dancing On Ice after coming down with gastroenteritis. The ITV show’s medical staff informed Libby that she wouldn’t be able to skate this evening but are hopeful she will be back on the ice next week. Meanwhile, Maura Higgins was forced to pull out of yesterday’s rehearsals after possibly coming down with the same illness.

The post read: “Unfortunately due to illness and on the advice of the #DancingOnIce medical staff, @libby.clegg will not be able to skate on tonight’s show.
“Wishing you all the best Libby – we’ll miss you tonight, but rest up and we hope to see you back next week!”
