Dancing On Ice fans were left scratching their heads when Holly Willoughby wore what appeared to be a wedding dress on the show.

The stylish star’s weekly wardrobe choices have been a talking point for fans of the ITV programme.

And Sunday night was no exception when she stepped out on to the rink in a frothy, floor-length white dress.

The gown, picked for the celebrity ice-skating show’s fairytale week, featured a strapless bodice and a ruffled skirt.

Willoughby, 37, teamed the Halfpenny London dress with pearl earrings.

Fans were confused by the bridal choice, with many asking on social media: “Why is Holly wearing a wedding dress?”

One person wrote on Twitter: “Nice of Holly to jib out of her wedding to host #dancingonice #whatswiththedress?”

“Just tuned in to #DancingOnIce why is holly wearing a wedding dress? Am I missing the point,” wondered another.

One person joked: “Holly willoughby may I borrow that dress for my wedding day?? Will have to lose 1872722 stone but it’s not gonna be any time soon so. X plenty of time for that. X.”

This weekend’s episode saw Max Evans perform with a different professional skater – Brandee Malto – after his partner Ale Izquierdo was taken ill.

Izquierdo wrote on Twitter that she was suffering with the flu.

She said: “Sad to announce that unfortunately I won’t be able to take part of the competition this Sunday due to being diagnosed with the flu.

“Wishing the best to my partner this Sunday. He will be skating with my really good friend Brandee! Im sure they will do really good! @maxevans13.”

The other contestants still in the running are Brooke Vincent, Jake Quickenden and Kem Cetinay and Alex Beresford.

The show has returned after a four-year hiatus with Phillip Schofield and Willoughby back as hosts.
