DANCING on Ice fans have pleaded for bosses to bring back Stephen Mulhern after host Phillip Schofield returned to the ITV show.

The In For A Penny host, 44, joined Holly Willoughby on the ITV show last Sunday after the 59-year-old This Morning star tested positive for Covid.

However, some viewers were disappointed that the Catchphrase presenter had been replaced and have pleaded for him to return.

One wrote: “Oh no. Phil’s back, hope yo see Stephen back soon. #DancingonIce”

Another posted: “Christ, Schofield is back, can we have Mulhern back, it’s already feeling like a funeral. #DancingonIce”

“Feels like rubbish just want Mulhern back #DancingonIce,” a third tweeted.

A fourth commented: “Miss Stephen Mulhern already tbh. #DancingonIce”

Another added: “What a shame we don’t have @stephenmulhern hosting again. #DOI”

But not all fans were unhappy with viewers thrilled to see the familiar face back on their screens.

Stephen and Holly, 40, reunited on screen for the first time in 16 years last week.

They have presented a number of children’s TV shows over the years, and were last seen presenting on Ministry of Mayhem in 2006.

Viewers of Dancing On Ice loved their onscreen partnership and are desperate to have Stephen as a permanent host.

One wrote: “Would love to see you back on @DancingonIce @StephenMulhern.”

Another posted: “Really don’t think anyone cares whether Scof is impressed by @StephenMulhern. Many of us were impressed by Stephen Mulhern’s presenting skills. I think he should take over for the rest of the series of #DOI. Well done Stephen for stepping in with Holly.”

A third commented: “Got to admit, Holly Willoughby did look a lot more comfortable, happier and bubblier this weekend with #StephenMulhern and a lot less ‘on edge’ like she does when she’s with Schofield.”

Before gracing our screens last week, the In For A Penny presenter said: “I’m very much looking forward to being back hosting alongside my good friend Holly this weekend. It’s big shoes to fill and I’m wishing Phillip a speedy recovery. 

“‘I’m a big fan of Dancing on Ice and for one night only I’m thrilled to be rink side watching the action unfold. It’s going to be unbelievable!”

Phillip confirmed that he would miss Dancing On Ice last week- and wished Stephen good luck.

The This Morning star tested himself twice in the hope he would return a negative result and be cleared to go back to work in the studio.

“@StephenMulhern please take over from Phillip Schofield on #DOI. Much loved Stephen, he was far better,” another shared.

Someone else tweeted: “Please could we have Stephen Mulhern presenting #DOI more often?”

Sharing a picture of his latest lateral flow tests, he wrote on Instagram: “Sorry Dancing On Ice. Have an amazing show Stephen Mulhern it’s so much fun x.”

Despite his positive tests, Phillip reassured fans earlier in the week he’s feeling “100 per cent well”.

On Monday the This Morning host revealed he tested negative for the coronavirus.

He returned to the daytime sofa on Wednesday after coronavirus forced him to isolate for a week.
