Dancing on Ice fans were sent into meltdown after spotting Coronation Street legend David Neilson in the audience.

He revealed that he's fully backing Mollie after she managed to score an impressive 33 out of 40 for her routine.

Mollie and her partner Sylvian Longchambon had to perform with a trolley as part of props week.

However, viewers watching at home were more distracted by seeing David on their television screens.

Taking to Twitter one fan penned: "Great to see a supportive Roy."

Another added: "Our Roy is in the audience. OMG!"

A third person said: "OMG David Neilson in the audience. #Corrie #DancingOnIce."

While a fourth persona agreed: "Roy Cropper for #DancingOnIce 2024. Make it happen."

Before Mollie opened the show, Jayne Torvill announced that she's injured and will be having surgery.

The stunning skating professional, 65, looked gorgeous in a deep emerald green glittery frock, which was paired with a matching sling.

Chatting to host Phillip Schofield, Jayne revealed that she needed an operation but could still press the buttons – with her right hand – to deliver her scores while judging.

She also revealed that the surgery came after a horror skating injury, which led to a damaged tendon in her arm.

Speaking on the show, she said: "Talking of things going wrong on the ice, I ruptured my bicep tendon so I need to have surgery."

Adding: "I'll be fine and I'll be back on the ice soon."

Taking to Twitter, fans were quick to throw their support behind the beloved skating star.
