Jason Donovan will NOT compete in this week’s Dancing On Ice

Jason Donovan has pulled out of Sunday’s Dancing On Ice, after four stars dropped out from the series due to sustaining injuries or contracting coronavirus.

An ITV representative confirmed the Australian actor and singer, 52 – who is competing on the show with professional skater Alexandra Schauman – has been advised to rest after suffering from back pain, but has vowed to return next week.

The musician’s break from the programme comes just days after Emmerdale’s Joe-Warren Plant and his partner Vanessa Bauer were forced to withdraw after they both tested positive for COVID-19.
