DANCING on Ice bosses have banned spray tans from this year’s show due to COVID-19.

Producers on the skating show are trying to limit the number of people on set at Bovingdon airfield, Hertfordshire, where the series is filmed to make sure it is coronavirus secure.
A show source said: “Unfortunately the tanning experts have got the cut due to the reduction in numbers of those on set.
“Every celebrity, and indeed pro skater, will be sent a big old supply so they can put it on at home.
“But given they’re not exactly experts – especially some of the blokes – the make-up team on the show will fill any missed gaps.”
The show begins this Sunday, with Holly Willoughby, 39, and Phillip Schofield, 58, returning to host.

The competition is adhering to strict Covid-19 guidelines to ensure the safety of the cast and crew, including using pre-recorded dances and glass screens to separate the judging panel.
Earlier this week The Sun revealed how bosses on the ITV show had been forced to tighten up restrictions after five members of the crew were forced into isolation over Covid-19 concerns.
