Dancing on Ice commentator QUITS skating show after just one episode

Holly Willoughb Phillip Schofield This Morning

But it wasn't one of the celebs, instead commentator Matt Chapman chose to quit.

TalkRADIO host Sam Matterface has been lined up as Matt's successor - according to The Sun newspaper.

Sam has worked for talkSPORT for several years nowWho is Sam Matterface?

After a period at Sky Sports News, where he met his now ex-wife Natalie Sawyer, Sam headed for radio and is one of talkSPORT's star commentators.

Since 2011 he has been a regular part of ITV Sport's commentary team, covering events such as the Africa Cup of Nations and 2014 World Cup.

His appointment comes after Matt left the show earlier this week.

The 39-year-old replaces racing reporter Matt Chapman, who has left the ITV series after just one episode of the 2018 series - so who is the man who follows in the skate tracks of Tony Gubba and Simon Reed on the mic rinkside?

A Dancing on Ice source told The Sun's freakish column: "Matt decided he couldn't make his diary quite work as he thought".

Matt confirmed he had chose to "leave the rink and return to the turf" after viewers had a mixed-response to his style of commentating on Sunday night, prompting him to tell ITV that 'perhaps it wasn't for him after all'.

Let's hope Dancing On Ice bosses find someone soon, otherwise Iain may just get that call.

Series 10 launched on Sunday, January 7, at 6pm on ITV.

Dancing On Ice continues this Sunday night when the second half of the celebrities will take to the ice, and one couple will be eliminated.
