Holly Willoughby reveals her Dancing on Ice 2021 winner

"I just think she's going to fall in love with it!"

This weekend, Dancing on Ice returns for a brand new series as Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby return to present the show and the expert Ice Panel of Torvill and Dean, John Barrowman and Ashley Banjo will all resume their roles as judges.

Taking part this year, and hoping to follow in the footsteps of last year's champion Joe Swash, are Olympians Colin Jackson CBE and Graham Bell, soap stars Faye Brookes and Joe-Warren Plant, entertainers Denise Van Outen and Jason Donovan, rapper Lady Leshurr, musician and presenter Myleene Klass, TV personalities Billie Shepherd and Rebekah Vardy, actor and comedian Rufus Hound and Capital Radio DJ Sonny Jay.

During a recent press conference for the new series, Torvill and Dean and hosts Phillip and Holly were asked who they think will win - and whilst Christopher Dean said he'd rather write his prediction down, Holly Willoughby was quick to give her prediction.

"I'm going to go Myleene." she said, adding "I think she's got musicality because obviously she's the musician. She's a performer anyway and I just think she's going to fall in love with it. That's my little insider tip. Based on nothing by the way! But that's my insider tip."

Despite not wishing to reveal who he thinks may win, Phillip seemed to agree with his co-host saying "I'm liking the sound of that!"

When reminded of this year's new voting twist - the Golden Ticket - where for the first two weeks only, one couple each week can receive a pass through to Musicals Week on 31st January - Holly joked with Christopher Dean asking him to "pick Myleene" to "prove her right".

Earlier on in the week, in a press pack issued by ITV, Holly singled Myleene out, as someone she thought would be "very good".

Going on to explain why, Holly said "I think she will firstly look really beautiful on the ice because she’s gorgeous and she’s very musical so she’ll understand where the beat is and the timing. I think when it comes to learning a routine that musicality really helps."

"I think she’s one of those people who’s really dedicated to what she does so I think she’ll give it everything and she’ll be brilliant."

Myleene and her partner Lukasz Różyckiz will be performing for the first time on the 24th January as just six couples will perform on the first two shows, with one couple sadly eliminated each week and waving goodbye to the competition.

Dancing on Ice returns Sunday at 6pm on ITV
