After a four-year hiatus, Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby are set to return as hosts to 'Dancing On Ice', Where it all began for the presenting duo.

The pair is known for their hilarious partnership on ITV's This Morning But first worked together on ITV's Dancing On Ice from 2006 to 2011.

Schofield, 55, said: “Dancing On Ice is what started it all off. It was the first time we worked together.

“We had such fun that when the position became vacant on This Morning, I said, ‘Holly is the only person I want. If I can’t have her I’m not playing’.”

And 36-year-old mum-of-three Holly is just as excited.

She said: “I can’t wait! There have been rumors the show was coming back for a couple of years and I was asked if I would be interested and obviously it was that ‘bite-your-handoff’ kind of thing.

“I have found a new appreciation for this kind of show since having the kids. It is nice my children are now old enough to come and watch.”

Having been off the air for over three years now, the 10th series starts this Sunday with stars including Love Island winner Kem Cetinay, 21, and Corrie beauty Brooke Vincent, 25.
