Dancing On Ice: Holly Willoughby fans all say same thing about her dress

The This Morning star had fans giggling on social media

Dancing On Ice viewers all made the same comparison about Holly Willoughby and her dress last night.

The This Morning star returned to screens for the ITV competition amid her time off from the daytime show.

Holly showed off her evening look ahead of the show on Instagram.  The TV star posed in a glittery purple gown, designed by Irena Soprano for Sol Angelann.

“Tonight on @dancingonice 5 new celebrities take to the ice… see you on @ ITV at 6:30… back with my @schofe … #hwstyle dress by @sol_angelann jewellery by @stephenwebsterjewellery shoes by @stuartweitzman,” she wrote.

However, sadly for Holly, her daring ensemble turned out to be a fashion faux pas.

“Holly looks like a statue in that dress, looks so uncomfortable! #DancingOnIce,” said one viewer.

A second tweeted: “#Dancingonice poor Holly!! That dress must be sooo uncomfortable, like a mummy in a neck brace.”

“Holly looks very uncomfortable in that dress and I’m sure Phil thinks his Bond #dancingonice,” said a third. 

Meanwhile, other viewers compared Holly unfavourably to a Cadbury’s sweet on Instagram.

“Wow that purple Cadbury purple,” joked one follower.

A second fan replied: “The big purple one, Quality Street.”
