Max Evans' Dancing on Ice partner pulls out due to illness

Max Evans has been dealt a huge blow as his partner Ale Izquierdo has been struck down with flu.

Dancing On Ice continues on Sunday night on ITV at 6pm, with the top five - Max, Alex Beresford, Brooke Vincent, Jake Quickenden and Kem Cetinay - to battle it out for a place in the semi-final. But the sportsman will undoubtedly be anxious the change in partner will affect his performance on the show, after he was teamed up with Antony Cotton's former partner for the show on Sunday night (25Feb18).

Ale's illness comes at a hard time for the pair, as Max will be hoping to bounce back after ending up in last week's skate off.

A Dancing On Ice spokesperson confirmed the news to Express.co.uk and revealed Izquierdo will be replaced by Brandee Malto instead.

Elaborating on her Twitter page, Ale told fans she's suffering from the flu, tweeting: "Sad to announce that unfortunately I won't be able to take part of the competition this Sunday due to being diagnosed with the flu".

The drama comes as Good Morning Britain host Alex Beresford nearly faced a smilier ordeal when his partner Brianne Delcourt was forced to pull out of rehearsals this week after falling ill with a bug.

"Fingers crossed it all goes good for them while I get to recover and hopefully get the chance to skate for my mother!" I'm sure they will do really good!

Meanwhile Max, 34, has admitted in an emotional Instagram message that he's heartbroken that Ale won't be performing with him.

Production has made the decision that I won't be allowed to skate on Sunday so I can properly recover.

The 24-year-old said: "Ale has had a serious case of the flu all week and producers have decided she's not well enough to train or perform. Thank you always for your support x @dancingonice #dancingonice@dancingonicetour @itv @wearestv1".
