Holly Willoughby praised for Oscars-worthy glittering Dancing On Ice gown

She might not have been walking the Oscars red carpet, but Holly Willoughby brought a hefty dose of Hollywood glamour to Sunday night's Dancing On Ice live final.

The This Morning presenter stunned in a floorlength Sophie Couture gown worthy of any LA awards show, glittering with silver sequins on top of multiple layers of flowing platinum chiffon, which gently brushed the floor.

Fans couldn't get enough of the sparkling strapless gown, comparing it variously to an Oscars trophy and a human Barbie.

One tweeted: "Has Holly Willoughby dressed up as the trophy tonight for the final?" While another wrote on Instagram: "Wow you look gorgeous! I had a limited edition Barbie doll with a dress just like this when I was a kid."

A third added: "She's glittering like an Oscars trophy!"

Holly wore her shoulder-length blonde hair in gentle waves, and accessorised with Mappin And Webb jewellery.

She wrote on Instagram: "Its the @dancingonice final!!!! Let do this!!!! Soooo excited."

And there was plenty to be excited for – as Joey Essex, The Vivienne and Nile Wilson all competed to win Dancing On Ice following last week's dramatic double elimination.

The final five celebrities skated twice during last Sunday’s episode before a dreaded skate-off saw the judges unanimously vote to save reality star Essex, sending home Corrie's Mollie Gallagher and Siva Kaneswaran.

They had done well to get so far after starting the season on a crowded rink, with the 11 competitors also including footballer John Fashanu, Love Island’s Ekin-Su and former EastEnder Patsy Palmer.

Nile Wilson and his skating partner Olivia Smart have kicked off the Dancing On Ice final in dramatic fashion as they secured a perfect 40 with their pirate-inspired routine.

Olympian Wilson showed off his gymnastic abilities as he performed a handstand on parallel bars suspended in the air as well as the infamously difficult headbanger, the first time a male celebrity has attempted the move.
