Holly Willoughby was the epitome of glamor as she posed in her dress ahead of Dancing On Ice on Sunday.

The TV host, 43, took to Instagram to share a photo of herself backstage wearing an off-the-shoulder stretch crepe dress with 3D flower details by Marchesa.

Series presenter Holly posed with her hair on her hip, with the garment perfectly accentuating her curvy figure.

The dress featured a low-cut neckline with flower details on each shoulder.

Referencing the headbanger, the move in which a skater is grabbed by the ankle and spun by their partner, Holly captioned her post: ‘Tonight at @dancingonice we’re going to the musicals… and it’s back…! The headbanger!

Holly also shared a photo of herself posing with actress Marisha Wallace, who is best known for her work in musical theatre, and is currently playing Miss Adeleide in Guys & Dolls at London’s Bridge Theatre.

Marisha, 38, who was getting ready to perform on Dancing On Ice while posing with Holly, wore a dazzling white Eliza Jane Howell jumpsuit embellished with sequins that sparkled under the bright studio lights while on Holly’s arm.

It comes after Holly visited Port Lympne Wildlife Park on Saturday and enjoyed a glass of champagne while toasting her 43rd birthday in style.

The star was treated to a posh £1,650-a-night stay at the luxurious Lion Lodge by her husband Dan Baldwin to celebrate her birthday.

They spent the day at the 600-acre compound with their three children, Harry, Belle and Chester.

During her stay, Holly toured the resort in a 4×4 car with her family to see the tigers, giraffes and cheetahs on site before enjoying a relaxing overnight stay in one of the resort’s elegant lion lodges.

A spectator told him Sun: ‘Holly seemed to be having fun on her birthday and couldn’t stop smiling.

‘He stayed at one of two lodges in Port Lympne that allows visitors to stay with the lions. It’s an amazing experience and it’s very luxurious.

“They had to spend the day driving around the safari park before settling in and enjoying the night before together in a lodge as a family.”

They also mentioned that it has been a “tough few months” for Holly and that it was “special” for her to be able to enjoy the day with her family.

Meanwhile, Greg Rutherford’s position on Sunday’s live Dancing On Ice show was at stake this weekend after suffering an injury.

The former track and field athlete, 37, who is partnered with professional Vanessa James, 36, has already skipped the dress rehearsal, with future performances in doubt.

An ITV source told MailOnline: “Greg missed the dress rehearsal due to injury, so at this stage it is uncertain whether he will attend the live show tonight.”

It comes after Greg scored his highest score yet during last week’s show, making a salsa to Ricky Martin’s La Bomba.

The duo were full of confidence in the routine which judge Oti Mabuse described as “sexy and sensual” and praised the duo’s chemistry.

Greg advanced to this week with a score of 30.5, while Claire Sweeney became the latest star to leave the series after landing the dreaded skate off with Lou Sanders.

Greg’s injury comes just after he recently opened up about his guilt over teammate Vanessa getting hurt on the ice, saying he felt “absolutely horrible.”

The pair were practicing before their second live performance for Movies Week, when Greg accidentally dropped Vanessa in a move that went wrong.

Talking with him Express On Sunday, Greg explained, “We practiced one of the flows we were doing and I basically threw Vanessa completely wrong and really hurt her.”

“I felt terrible, absolutely horrible. That actually hit me pretty hard, but it hit her harder when she hit the ice.

‘It was one of those things where you have to remind yourself from time to time that you have to be as respectful as possible of the ice and the movement you are making.

“This sport is very dangerous, so you have to be focused, there is a big responsibility.”

He added that he constantly focuses on making sure Vanessa is safe when practicing dangerous lifts, out of fear that she could hurt herself.

This comes after Greg scored his highest score yet during last week's show, making a salsa to Ricky Martin's La Bomba (pictured).

He explained: “I’m probably the tallest person on the show by four or five inches and I have a very long wingspan.

“When I lift Vanessa above my head, she is very, very high and if something were to go wrong, she never touches wood, but she is too far away for her to fall.

“I’m always very aware of that, I want to protect her as much as possible.”

Dancing On Ice continues on Sunday 11 February at 6.20pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
