The Dancing On Ice 2014 celebs have reportedly been left battling gypsies in the lead up to tonight's latest live show.

According to reports, the four remaining celebs have been locked up in their hotel rooms this week after travellers set up camp outside their luxury lodge... at the Holiday Inn in Elstree, North London.

The Daily Star on Sunday newspaper claims that ITV worried about the all star contestants "getting caught up in trouble" and being "targeted" by the group.

A supposed source told the tabloid this morning: “It’s all turned a bit ugly since a group of travellers decided they would park their caravans in a car park in Elstree Business Centre.

“Obviously, we do not want any of the contestants getting distracted, so they have been told to stay in the hotel if trouble flares. The gypsies are out to cause chaos and it’s clear they will not move without a fight."

The insider added: “If any insults or abuse are thrown at the contestants they have been told to ignore it.

“It’s pretty bad timing and an unwanted distraction.”

Hertfordshire Police are aware of the situation having already dealt with fly tipping on the site and are now in the legal process of moving the travellers on.

A spokesman for the constabulary said in a statement: “We are currently working with the landowners who are in the process of arranging an eviction notice, which will then be served on the travellers."

Dancing On Ice 2014 airs tonight from 6:15PM on ITV.
