Holly Willoughby will not be presenting another series of Freeze the Fear with Wim Hof, after the BBC confirmed the show will not be continuing this year.

The reality show was first released in spring 2022 and saw a team of eight celebs pushed to their limits by extreme athlete Wim Hof.

Taking on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, the celebs embarked upon a number of physical and mental challenges under the guidance of Wim, also known as The Iceman.

Although there has been just one series of the show, a spokesperson for the BBC has now confirmed there are currently 'no plans' to release another.

They told Tyla: "As it stands, there are no immediate plans for another series of Freeze The Fear on the BBC."

Holly, 42, presented the show alongside comedian Lee Mack, 55, meanwhile husband Dan Baldwin is the co-founder of the production company behind the series - Hungry Bear Media.

Despite the news, it won't be long until viewers see Holly on their telly once again, with the mum-of-three set to present ITV's Dancing on Ice with Stephen Mulhern later this month.

The pair will reunite to host the show 20 years after they presented Ministry Of Mayhem together back in the early noughties.

Katie Rawcliffe, head of entertainment commissioning at ITV, said: "Holly and Stephen are two of our best loved presenters, so reuniting them 20 years after they first appeared on screen together to host Dancing On Ice marks the start of an exciting year for the show."

Holly's return to telly comes months after she stepped down from This Morning in October.

Holly left the show following an alleged plot to kidnap her, as well as Phillip's departure, which came after he admitted to having an affair with a colleague while still married to his wife.

"I have let ITV know today that after 14 years, I will not be returning to This Morning," Holly said in a statement when she left.

"To everyone who has ever worked on the show over the years, thank you so so much," she continued.

"This is such a difficult goodbye, you are incredible and I forever will be proud of what we've done together."

Holly added: "It's been an honour to just be part of its story and I know this story has many chapters left to go. Sadly, however, I now feel I have to make this decision for me and my family.

"I will miss you all so much. Holly."
