DANCING On Ice fans were “in tears” this evening as the ITV show returned to our screens – offering some “normality”.
The first batch of celebs will take to the ice with their professional partners in tonight’s launch, with the second half competing next week.

Viewers couldn’t be more delighted to have some much-needed comfort-viewing on their screens amid a difficult third UK lockdown, flocking to Twitter to share their joy at its return.
One wrote: “Dancing on ice is the little bit of normality I needed in my life”.
Another added: “Anyone else crying? #DancingOnIce 10 weeks of happiness”.
A third agreed: “Why am I crying at #DancingOnIce I feel like this is just what we need right now!”
It kicked off with an impressive routine from the professional skaters
The show kicked off with a mesmerising pre-recorded routine from the professional dancers, which was put together when they were in a coronavirus-safe work “cohort”.
Holly and Phil then greeted viewers, who were blown away by Holly’s eye-catching dress.
The blonde beauty looked sensational in the dusty pink get-up, but some were distracted by the plunging neckline – putting her boobs front and centre.
Holly put on a busty display
A far cry from her usual This Morning outfits, the mother-of-three looked incredibly glam in the gown, which had feather and sequin detailing.
She had her glossy blonde hair styled into chic waves, with the star writing on Instagram: “Gosh it feels good to put a sequin on!”
Although the show only returned to telly tonight, it has already had its fair share of drama behind-the-scenes.

Earlier this week, we told how Denise Van Outen was rushed to hospital after dislocating her shoulder in a horror fall during training.
Graham Bell’s partner Yebin Mok was also forced to drop out of the competition for a matter of weeks after a terrifying injury saw her leg tendons get exposed after she was “stabbed” with a skate.
Holly told viewers: “This week Olympic skier Graham Bell and his partner Yebin had a freak accident, which resulted in her having a laceration on her leg.”
Phil continued: “We had a Zoom meeting yesterday with the team and they showed us a picture that we can not show you on TV.
“Holly couldn’t even look at it, she had to look away – and it was a very nasty stab wound from an ice blade.
“You could see the tendons, it’s a very dangerous show.”
The presenters went on to confirm that comic Rufus Hound will be skating this weekend instead of Graham, who will return next week with new partner Karina Manta while Yebin recovers.
With the seriousness of her injury, Holly and Phil said that the professional skater will be “out of the show for quite a few weeks”.
