A Dancing on Ice star has been frozen out after asking a member of the cast on a date – and getting rejected.

This has now caused a rather frosty atmosphere backstage on the ITV show.

A source said: “It’s been very awkward when everyone comes together and these two have to see one another.”

TV chiefs thought romance might finally be in the air for the latest series.

One of the familiar faces on the show had their eye on someone.

We know the identities of the pair but are keeping mum to spare their blushes.

The smitten star thought they would follow their heart and decided to ask the person they fancied out to dinner.

But sadly it didn’t go the way they had planned.

They got rejected straight away.

It did not take long for the gossip to reach the other members of the ice cast and the judges.

An insider said: “It happened very early on in the run. This person had the hots for a co star but when they invited them on a date they got a resounding – No!

“It’s a shame. Both were single so there was nothing untoward in asking. The show needs good news like a romance as it’s been hit with Covid scares and injuries.

“And it’s caused a bit of a awkward atmosphere when everyone comes together on a Sunday for the live show.”

The news will disappoint show co-host Holly Willoughby as she loves it when the stars of their show fall in love.

She said: “‘I really want there to be a romance on Dancing On Ice this series. I always want that to happen. Wouldn’t that be great?”

Arlene Phillips is set to join the ice panel on Sunday for Musical Weeks.

The former Strictly Come Dancing judge will join Oti Mabuse, Ashley Banjo, Christopher Dean and Jayne Torvill on the show.

Dancing on Ice airs Sundays on ITV and ITV Hub
