The Dancing On Ice studio is "haunted", according to show host Phillip Schofield who couldn't help teasing Holly Willoughby about the spooktacular news.

The show's first home was Elstree Studios, where it lived from 2006 - 2014. It had a brief, one-year dalliance with Shepperton Studios and relocated to RAF Bovingdon Airfield, near Hemel Hempstead, in Hertfordshire in 2018.

And it's claimed that some of the Dancing on Ice cast and crew have started to feel "weird" things about the most recent filming location, saying the previously derelict space was "terrifying."

Discussing the eeriness of the building on ITV's This Morning, Philip told Holly, "I've saved this moment to tell you that Bovingdon Airfield where we film Dancing On Ice, it's haunted. Did you know that place is haunted?"

Holly replied, "Why are you telling me this? Has anyone ever seen anything?"

Coronation Street legend Sally Dynevor MBE was the first confirmed celeb for Dancing On Ice 2022. Speaking on Lorraine Kelly, the Corrie star said, "This is a massive challenge, Lorraine. It really, really is. I'm not getting any younger, I've just got to take every opportunity I get so that when I'm old I can say you know what? I gave it a go."

Phillip told her, "It's haunted by the airmen who have died. Their bodies have been brought back from war. Some of the crew have seen ghosts."

Ashley Banjo, then a judge on the show said, "I've seen a few mists. I'm not going to lie. I go from the changing room to the stage. No wondering around."

Passers-by have also reported seeing the "mist", with some dog walkers even revealing walking past the building with their pets makes their canine companions howl.

A source told The Daily Star, "The mist has been seen by several people. They say it suddenly appears and is so thick you can't see through it.

"One person is rumoured to have seen it late at night on the runway. Some friends of his were waiting in a car six metres away and they said it followed him. It was engulfing him."

Reminds us never to never get tickets to see the show live...
