Dancing On Ice has been thrown into chaos in recent days after three celebrities were forced to pull out of this weekend’s live show.  

Although two of the three celebrities are likely to return after a week off the ice, show bosses are said to be ‘preparing for every possible outcome.’

It’s thought that two of the three absentee stars will return: Rufus Hound, 41, is self-isolating after coming into contact with coronavirus, while Billie Faiers, 31, is taking the week off to grieve the loss of her grandmother Wendy.

Denise Van Outen, 46, however, who was skating with pro Matt Evers, 44, has permanently pulled out of the show after dislocating her shoulder. 

She has been replaced by gymnast Amy Tinkler, 21, who will skate with pro Joe Johnson this Sunday 

It’s also been claimed that producers are ready to call on stand-in Matt Richardson, 29, if anyone else should permanently drop out.

A source told The Sun: ‘The trio of absences have caused major headaches. Bosses have to fill two hours in prime time. 

‘They thought the biggest hurdle would be getting the programme on air, but they couldn’t have foreseen coronavirus causing a contestant to drop out at the same time that two other stars left due to an injury and a bereavement. 

‘With such a run of bad luck, they’re preparing for every possible outcome. They’re taking nothing for granted.’ 

MailOnline has contacted Dancing On Ice for comment.

Denise explained after last weekend that that doctors discovered she had three bone fractures in her shoulder which meant she’d be unable to perform any lifts or solo skating.  

A spokesperson for Dancing on Ice said: ‘We adore Denise and Matt and we’re so very sad to see them leave the competition so soon. 

‘They are both much loved members of the Dancing On Ice family and we’d like to thank them for their hard work, from the moment they began training through to the joyful performances they brought to the show. 

‘We wish Denise all the very best as she now takes some time to make a full recovery.’
