DANCING on Ice stars Maura Higgins, Trisha Goddard and Caprice Bourret stunned in their glitzy outfits as they attended the show's 2020 launch.
Alongside the celebrities, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield put on a united display – despite reports of a feud behind the scenes on This Morning.
Phillip wore a blue suit with a white top buttoned up, while Holly wore a black dress.
However, ignoring the behind-the-scenes drama were the stars coming to celebrate the new season of Dancing On Ice, which begins in January.
Love Island star Maura Higgins appeared, wearing a tasselled white-and-brown mini dress and silver heels.
Meanwhile, former chat show host Trisha Goddard wore a mini dress fitted with sequins.
The couples also filtered in, including Matt Evers and Ian 'H' Watkins from Steps – the first ever same-sex skating couple on the show.
Other stars included Coronation Street's Lisa George, who plays Beth Tinker, and Paralympic star Libby Clegg.
Matt wore a traditional tuxedo with coattails. H wore a suit with a colour split, the top white and the bottom black.
The couples also got a chance to show off their skills ahead of the main show, taking to the ice for a performance.
This weekend, The Sun reported how eight star ITV presenters have labelled the This Morning working environment as "toxic".
Phillip and Holly's most recent argument was over his apparent jealousy when she won a Bafta in May for I’m A Celebrity where she had filled in for Ant McPartlin — but he didn’t want her to celebrate the win on This Morning.
An ITV source revealed: "Phillip was furious. He didn’t want Holly mentioning her triumph when they reunited on This Morning.
"It felt very petty and bitter for someone who is his close friend. But it felt like he was jealous."
Meanwhile, Ruth Langsford – who hosts the Friday show with husband Eamonn Holmes – made a formal complaint to ITV's new head of daytime TV, Emma GOrmley, over his conduct.
It followed an incident in April which saw Phillip rudely interrupt Ruth while she was presenting a preview of Loose Women during an episode of This Morning.
Their close display will be a shock to This Morning fans, after they accused the normally close duo of "trying too hard".
The programme opened with the pair laughing and joking on a Ferris wheel, which struck some viewers as an "awkward" attempt to distract from news of the This Morning feud.
Taking to Twitter to discuss their appearance today, one person remarked: “Omg they’re both trying a bit too hard.”
Another joked: "'F**k how can we distract everyone from the ongoing feud rumors with Phil', ‘I know! Hear me out.. how about we just throw a fair randomly?’ Genius!”
