DANCING on Ice’s Holly Willoughby screamed and ran off set after being scared by a dinosaur on tonight’s show.
The 40-year-old presenter got the shock of her life on the ITV skating show when an animatronic Raptor appeared behind her as she spoke to the camera rink-side.

Holly screamed and cowered to the side as the Raptor growled and snapped at her.
It then went over to her co-host Phillip Schofield who petted it on the nose, with Holly asking why the Raptor was friendly to him but more vicious to her.
On cue, it turned and came for her again, causing her to squeal again as she tried to finish her link.
The Raptor kept snapping at her, leading to her shouting “Back off!” before running off past the camera after she finished what she had to say as Phil laughed.
The Raptor was on the ice for Lady Leshurr’s Jurassic Park themed routine for Movie Week.
As the rapper received her scores, the Raptor returned and gave judge Ashley Banjo just as much of a shock as Holly.
After Ashley cried out in shock, Holly – who was across the ice – said: “I’m just so happy that happened to you as well as me.”
Viewers took to Twitter to comment on Holly’s scared reaction to the fake dinosaur.
