Dancing On Ice 2021 is well underway, with the series having already bid farewell to its first celebrity skater.
The series began a fortnight ago, with the first six couples taking to the ice in the first week and the remaining six showing off their skating skills last Sunday night – with ITV putting a number of strict rules in place amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Despite previous worries that the show would be delayed due to claims crew members had tested positive for the virus, so far the series has progressed as planned – with one of the series’ most popular themed weeks set to air tonight.
So what time does the programme air and who will hitting the ice this evening? We’ve got all the details you need.
What time is Dancing On Ice on tonight?
Dancing On Ice airs tonight at 6pm on ITV.
