Dancing on Ice is back – and so is Holly’s plunging neck-line

Torvill and Dean's global smash-hit is returning to our TV screens this Sunday evening, which means - get ready fellas - the return of Holly Willoughby's fantastic frocks. Oh, and Phillip Schofield.

The bubbly blonde received widespread national coverage in the papers for her dresses, revealing her natural curves - which weren't to the taste of all viewers. One particular outfit received five complaints after the show.

Holly herself vowed to keep dressing as she liked, saying, "I can't believe the stir it caused. I like to wear feminine clothes and I've had people coming up to me in the street saying how much they liked it. I'm proud of my curves."

Onto this year's show, who's going to be stepping out onto the ice? Let's take a look at the skating stars:
