Dancing on Ice has reportedly ditched the spray tans from the set of the show due to Covid-19 fears.

However, now it seems that those staple spray tans will no longer be taking place due to the reduction in numbers on the set of the show due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Instead it seems the contestants - which include Rebekah Vardy and Denise Van Outen - will be applying their own fake tan at home.

A show source told The Sun: "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."

However, the source adds that the make-up team will fill in any gaps when the celebrities arrive on the set as they aren't experts at applying tanning.

ITV declined to comment on the story when approached by The Mirror.

The news comes after it was announced that Karina Manta will step-in to perform with Graham Bell following the horrific injury of his professional skating partner Yebin Mok.

Yebin suffered a nasty laceration to her shin during rehearsals with her partner and received treatment at Watford Hospital.

In an Instagram post, Yebin thanks NHS staff for nursing her horrible wound.

In the lengthy message she wrote: "Just massive thank you the staff of Watford hospital!Doctors, surgeons, nurses, scrub nurses, operating team, anesthetists, urgent care, recovery care."

She also added: "They were all so kind, so caring and looked after me so well on my overnight on Monday. [prayer hands emojis] They truly are heroes!

"So grateful for the care I received. And my leg is feeling so much better already thanks to them [heart emojis]"

Meanwhile, the judging panel this year will once more consist of skating legends Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, Diversity dance choreographer Ashley Banjo, and actor-singer John Barrowman.

And, of course, Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will be back to present Sunday's show.

Dancing on Ice starts on ITV on Sunday night at 6pm.
