In 2021, Holly’s DOI wardrobe shocked viewers and sparked more than 300 Ofcom complaints. Her nude plunge dress from the launch episode caused a furore.
Dany Atrache’s £6,240 couture dress from his Fall/Winter 2020-2021 collection sparked criticism from some viewers, with one tweet at a time: ‘Why is Holly wearing that kind of dress at a family show?’
Another said: ‘Why doesn’t Holly dress appropriately to be on an ice rink? What a totally inappropriate outfit!’
The new Dancing On Ice series kicks off Sunday night with six couples heading to the rink for the first week to impress judges Ashley Banjo, Jayne Torvill, Christopher Dean and newcomer Oti Mabuse.
While there are a total of 12 couples hoping to make it to the finals, only six competed at launch night this week, including Happy Mondays’ Bez and Angela Egan, Brendan Cole and Vanessa Bauer, and Sally Dynevor and Matt Evers.

Also Ria Hebden and Łukasz Różycki, Kye Whyte and Tippy Packard and Kimberly Wyatt and Mark Hanretty of Pussycat Dolls showed their skating skills.
It comes after new judge Oti Mabuse revealed she plans to continue Strictly Come Dancing ‘one season at a time’ after speculation she will quit the show after seven series.
The ballroom professional, 31, will make her DOI judging panel debut on Sunday night’s show-stopping return, after John Barrowman was expunged over historic charges of flashing his manhood while filming Doctor Who.
She has also made it clear that Brendan Cole, her former co-star on the BBC One show, will certainly not receive any special treatment as a contestant on the famous ice rink.
