Dancing On Ice is terrifying enough for contestants as they step foot on the ice rink for the first time.
The fear of falling over is bound to be all that is on their’ minds as the nation eagerly looks on.
However, the unsuspecting stars never expect their glitzy ensembles to be the cause of an embarrassing blunder.
From Pamela Anderson’s busty dress to Brooke Vincent’s tangled tassels, here are the wardrobe malfunctions that hit the headlines.

Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent’s first dance on the ice was interrupted last year when her skating partner Matej Silecky appeared to get stuck to her mid-skate.
The pair were dancing to Carly Rae Jepson’s I Really Like You when she went to jump into a lift and it because clear his button had clung onto her tights.
The soap star seemed determined to carry on with the routine while trying to de-tangle herself from Matej – but in the process missed several of their moves.
When it came to the judges’ scores, she was heavily penalised for the mistake.

While Christopher Dean supported her, claiming: "You kept your composure, ripped it off and carried on," Ashley Banjo was less impressed.
He said: "Once it got caught, we shouldn’t have known, it felt like forever. It lasted a bit long for me, and it was a little bit clunky."

Pamela Anderson’s nip-slip
Pamela Anderson may have been used to stripping naked for modelling shoots, but the blonde bombshell certainly wasn’t expecting to reveal as much skin as she did during her skate-off on the show in 2013.
Competing against Keith Chegwin for a place in the second round of the series, Baywatch star Pamela was thrown off track when her busty white dress fell down.
During the skate, Pamela’s breast could be seen as she was flung around by partner Matt Evers, although she was luckily wearing petal plasters on her nipples to conceal them.

As she was voted off, despite a promising first dance, a devastated Pamela blamed the wardrobe malfunction for her departure, and even suggested that show bosses may have set her up on purpose.
She admitted on This Morning: “I’m still in shock. I’m devastated, because I put so much hard work into it.
“Just before I went on I asked the wardrobe department for those petals because I knew I was going to fall out of the dress. It seemed different from when I had worn it earlier."
Before adding: “I’m used to having my boobs out but not in that way. Maybe they had wanted it to happen!”
Brianne Delcourt’s sequin dress
Brianne Delcourt’s sequin dress could have been ‘very, very dangerous’
Professional figure skater Brianne Delcourt’s glitzy dress may not have caused her any embarrassment as its sequins started shedding on the ice – but This Morning’s Dancing On Ice reporter Jordan Banjo revealed it could have spelt disaster for fellow skaters.
Far beyond an embarrassing blunder, the Diversity star revealed that show technicians were forced to comb the ice for any stray sequins during the ad break following the wardrobe mishap, because they could be "really, really dangerous".
"Brianne’s [costume] was shedding glitter all over the place. It was in one of our links last night," Jordan said.
Explaining the damage Brianne’s costume could have done, he added: "If [other contestants] hit a sequin on their blades, they can just drop, they can go over.
"I was watching the rehearsals and Max [Evans] and Ale [Izquierdo] had some really, really dangerous lifts.
"And you could literally just see the sequins coming off of her dress, and if she’s upside down and Max trips, someone is going to get seriously, seriously hurt."

It’s not just the skaters and the contestants that fall victim to wardrobe blunders on Dancing On Ice, as even host Holly Willoughby sometimes can’t avoid an outfit fail.
While at least it posed no danger to her, like some previous wardrobe mis-haps, popular TV presenter experienced a cringe-worthy moment of her own during the launch of the 2019 series, as she sported a red satin dress with an unfortunate stain around the crotch area.
While Holly still managed to look effortlessly glamorous in the one-shoulder number, the stain was highlighted by the glaring flash of the paparazzi cameras.
A beaming Holly appeared to not notice the slight flaw on her otherwise immaculate appearance as she attended the series opener with Phil at London’s Natural History Museum.
