Dancing on Ice made one big change during Sunday night's episode (February 11).

Despite several complaints about the size of the rink affecting the quality of the skating seemingly going unnoticed, it looks like the ITV series' producers did pick up on feedback about the sound quality.

Indeed, over recent weeks, presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby have been seen struggling to talk above the cheering of the audience.

So, in a bid to combat this, the duo were spotted holding handheld microphones during Sunday night's show.

Although Schofe has since taken to Twitter to offer up a different explanation...

"The wind was so noisy we thought we'd lose the roof," he said. "Stick mics hid it better than the personal mics we usually use."

While we're uncertain whether the handheld mics will be back, this weekend's show will definitely feature a double elimination.

The news was announced by Holly and Phil during Sunday's episode, where Lemar Obika became the fifth celeb to leave the competition.

With only two girls left in the competition and at the bottom end of the score table, could this week see Dancing on Ice lose the rest of its female celebrities?

Dancing on Ice continues at 6pm on Sunday night (February 18) on ITV.
