The ‘pause’ on the reality show comes after a series of injuries and contestants being forced to quit or take time out.
In place of Dancing On Ice this weekend a one-off show called Dancing On Ice: The Greatest Show On Ice will air on ITV at 6pm on Sunday (February 21).
The show will celebrate the most memorable moments in Dancing on Ice’s history.
A spokesperson for ITV said: “ITV have taken the decision to pause Dancing on Ice this week and there will be no live show on Sunday 21st February.
“Each week our production team and cast have delivered a fantastic show during incredibly challenging times.
“The welfare of all of those involved is important to us and we felt it prudent to take a week’s break at this juncture.
“Continuing to make the best TV for our viewers is of paramount importance to us and we look forward to resuming the competition next week, with the show back live on Sunday 28th February.”
The news comes after four stars have dropped out of the show.
While there have only actually been four eliminations a total of eight celebs have left the show in a month, with Myleene Klass, Graham Bell, Matt Richardson and most recently, Amy Tinkler, have all been sent packing from the rink after losing out in the Skate Off.
Jason Donovan also had to sit out last week as he rested a back injury.
TV star Denise Van Outen was one of the first to withdraw from DOI after dislocating her shoulder.
Graham Bell’s partner, Yebin Mok, was forced to pull out of the first two shows after she sustained a nasty injury during training, Karina Manta replaced her instead.
