Although this season of the show has been canceled due to injuries and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, attendees will continue to receive full pay.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “The decision to cut Dancing On Ice doesn’t mean the stars or professionals will miss out on their pay.
“Everyone gets full series pay and no one on the show will be penalized for having a shorter run time.”

Producers working on a program have postponed the finale to March 14 – rather than March 21 – due to a shortage of candidates following injuries and COVID-19 diagnoses.
A source told The Sun Online earlier: “Everyone is absolutely disappointed that this has happened. But ultimately, due to injuries and filming during a pandemic, they have no choice.
“You can’t compromise on the quality of the program. In order to meet the high standards that everyone expects, they decided to downsize the series with a show.
“It means they can give all the skaters and celebrities a decent semi-final and grand finale that they all deserve.”
And a spokesman for Dancing On Ice said, “ITV has decided to push the Dancing on Ice finale forward by a week. The final of the competition will now take place on Sunday, March 14th.
“Our production team and cast put on a fantastic show in incredibly challenging times.
“Keeping producing the best television for our viewers is our number one priority and we look forward to the rest of the series.”
