Pregnant Holly Willoughby has missed Sunday night's edition of Dancing on Ice after she was advised to rest by doctors.

Co-host Phillip Schofield revealed on Twitter that Willoughby "is suffering from migraines and has been advised by her doctor to rest".

Coleen Nolan, who works alongside the pair on ITV daytime show This Morning, stepped in to co-present Sunday night's skating contest.

Loose Women regular Nolan, who skated herself in 2009, has also presented the spin-off show Dancing on Ice Friday.

Schofield later tweeted "Get well soon Holly x x" - and just before tonight's show started he added: "Very odd getting ready for the show without @hollywills."

Willoughby, 30, who is married to TV producer Dan Baldwin whom she met on children's show Ministry Of Mayhem, is expecting her second child in May.

She revealed she was expecting a girl on This Morning last month.

The couple's son, Harry, will be two in May.

Willoughby's manager John Knight said she is also likely to miss Wednesday's This Morning show so she can rest.

"Overnight Holly developed quite a migraine and as a precaution decided to have the symptoms checked out by her doctor," he said on Sunday. "She was advised to rest today so is unfortunately unable to host Dancing on Ice this evening."
