Holly Willoughby is facing the "toughest decision" of her career ahead of 'Dancing on Ice's return.

The 42-year-old TV star remains undecided about returning to the ITV show, following the departure of former co-host Phillip Schofield - but Holly also wants to remain "loyal" to ITV.

A source told the Daily Mail newspaper: "She absolutely loves ITV, she is loyal to them and they have been extremely loyal to her, but she's just not sure if she can do it.

"Holly doesn't want to let anyone down. It is literally the toughest decision for her.

"I mean, what do you do? It starts in a few weeks, she knows that. It's a huge quandary."

Holly quit as the co-host of 'This Morning' earlier this year, after a man was charged with soliciting to commit murder over an alleged kidnap plot.

However, Holly remains very aware that 'Dancing on Ice' has been a huge part of her TV career.

An ITV source shared: "Holly is one of those who hasn't forgotten where she came from, and who has helped her along the way.

"'Dancing on Ice' was her first big chance. Millions tuned in to watch her."

Holly announced her departure from 'This Morning' in October.

The TV star confirmed her exit from the show via a statement posted on social media.

She wrote on Instagram: "I have let ITV know today that after 14 years, I will not be returning to 'This Morning'.

"To everyone who has ever worked on the show over the years, thank you so so much. This is such a difficult goodbye, you are incredible and I forever will be proud of what we've done together. Thank you to everyone at ITV for being supportive. To every guest who has sat on our sofa, thank you. (sic)"
