RUFUS Hound will be absent from Dancing On Ice tonight (Sunday, January 31).
The comedian and presenter had been partnered with professional dancer Robin Johnstone.
Why is Rufus Hound not on Dancing on Ice tonight?
Rufus Hound will be absent from Dancing On Ice on Sunday night as he continues self-isolating after coming into contact with someone who tested positive for Covid-19.
In an update on January 30, the star confirmed: “I’ve had Covid. Isolated when I knew I’d come into contact with it, tested five days later, am coming to the end of having had it, luckily [very] mild case.”
Hound, who prompted hundreds of complaints to broadcasting watchdog Ofcom after he took aim at the Government over its stance on free school meals on last Sunday’s launch episode, joked he is working his way through on-demand quiz shows.
He wrote earlier on Twitter: “My isolation statement: Delighted to say I’ve watched almost every episode of Countdown on All4, Only Connect on iPlayer and should have made significant inroads into Pointless by this time tomorrow.”
When will Rufus Hound return to Dancing on Ice?
A spokeswoman for ITV said last week: “Rufus Hound came into contact with someone outside of the show who tested positive for Covid-19.
“This means, following Government guidelines, he will isolate for ten days.
“We are hoping to welcome him back to the ice soon.”

How did he progress to the next round?
Hound was not due to perform for the judges on Sunday night, after impressing during the launch episode.
The panel put the comedian and his partner, Robin Johnstone, straight through to week three of the competition by giving the pair a golden ticket.
Visibly shocked, Hound said: “I’ve spent most of this year not being emotionally stable because the world stopped making sense and this does not make more sense of it.
“Thank you, I don’t know what is happening.”
