Due to the coronavirus pandemic, much like Strictly Come Dancing, Dancing on Ice is asking the celebrities and their skating partners to form ‘mini bubbles’ to keep the show on track and avoid infection.
In October, Graham Bell explained that each bubble would consist of a celebrity, a pro skater and a coach. Each bubble would also have its own ice rink to keep them all separated.
