ITV weatherman Alex Beresford could be forced to miss Dancing On Ice 2018's first live show.

The Good Morning Britain weather host is said to be suffering from the flu and has missed rehearsals.

Alex is one of 12 celebs on the new series, which returns on Sunday night after four years off air.

He is due to be skating with pro performer Brianne Delcourt, one of four returning professionals.

But The Sun says his debut skate is in jeopardy after being forced to skip training due to illness.

A source said: “He’s worried he won’t be well enough for Sunday but is hopeful he’ll get better.

"His training was going really well up until the Christmas break so he’s gutted to be out of action.”

Dancing On Ice returns on Sunday night at 6PM on ITV.

Legendary skating duo Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will be reunited with original hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on the show that sees celebrity skaters take to the ice in a bid to dance and dazzle their way to glory.

With a brand new cast of celebrities plucked from the world of TV, music and showbiz, a refreshed line up of skating professionals, a spectacular new set, and more ambitious routines than ever before, the show’s revival will prove unmissable event television.

Torvill and Dean will both sit on a revamped ice panel alongside the formidable Jason Gardiner and choreographer extraordinare Ashley Banjo. ITV Racing’s Matt Chapman will commentate.

Celebs joining Alex on the cast include Great British Bake Off's Candice Brown, Love Island's Kem Cetinay, Corrie star Antony Cotton and X Factor singer Jake Quickenden.

Dancing On Ice 2018 begins on Sunday, January 7 on ITV at 6PM.
