Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu to skate as nun in next Dancing On Ice show after Ofcom complaints

Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu's next Dancing On Ice costume has been revealed after she generated over 100 Ofcom complaints for her first performance on the hit ITV show.

During her first skate of the 2023 series, the Love Island winner, 28, wore a nude sparkly leotard for her Britney Spears' Toxic routine, where she also flipped her hair and crawled along the ice.

However, Ekin-Su's costume this Sunday is worlds away from her first look as the actress will dress up as a nun.

The reality star will be portraying The Sound of Music's iconic Maria Von Trapp for Dancing On Ice's Musicals Week, where she will dance to Do-Re-Mi.

The news was revealed in an Instagram shared by the official Dancing On Ice account, captioned: "Curtain up! This week is Musicals Week and here are the musicals that have inspired our skaters performances.

"Act 1 starts Sunday at the slightly earlier time of 6:25pm on ITV and ITVX #DancingOnIce."

To which Ekin-Su and her pro partner Brendyn Hatfield revealed they would be performing to Do-Re-Mi from The Sound of Music with the star saying: "Super excited because I love The Sound of Music."

While she added to The Sun : "Whoever you see in the performance, whether I’m playing Britney Spears or Maria from The Sound of Music, I will be that person.

"With Britney, I was having fun with it, I couldn’t have performed it better in my opinion – I don’t regret it at all. I played her and now it’s over.

"This time I’ll be playing a character from The Sound of Music and I’ll be how she is supposed to be – it’s a character. People forget I’m an actress. If I was asked to play Henry VIII on ice then I’d do it."

It comes as Dancing On Ice is reportedly set to scrap the ITV show's iconic skate-off in an unexpected series first.

According to new reports, for the first time in the skating show's history, the celebrities will have "no safety net" after their performance.

Instead, it is believed that the stars, which include the likes of Ekin-Su and Joey Essex, will be scored by the judges and those marks combined with the public’s votes – sadly, the lowest ranked couple will leave.

A show source told The Sun : "You might think there being no dreaded skate off would be a good thing, but actually it means the celebs have no safety net – there’ll be no saving of favourites, or forgiving a misstep.

"The celeb will be judged entirely on how they skate and how the audience reacts to that skate. The stakes are higher than ever."

OK! has contacted ITV for comment.

It comes as the latest episode featured the dreaded skate-off, where John Fashanu became the first star to leave the 2023 series after facing Ekin-Su on the ice.

Dancing On Ice returns Sunday night at 6:25pm on ITV and ITVX.
