Stephen Mulhern is in talks to replace Phillip Schofield on 'Dancing on Ice'.

The 46-year-old presenter is the current favourite to replace Phillip, 61, on the programme, after he left ITV earlier this year.

Speaking about the possibility of co-hosting the show, Stephen told The Sun newspaper: "I'd be crazy not to do it.

"It’s that thing isn’t it … I still know some of the team obviously, and Holly [Willoughby] is a dream partner to work with.

"I think there's a right time and a right place.

"But, you know, I stood in for Philip on 'Dancing on Ice' before when he had COVID and that was an amazing night.”

Holly has co-hosted 'Dancing On Ice' with Philip since 2006, but she's yet to confirm whether she'll return to the show.

The 42-year-old star recently stepped back from her TV career after a plot to kidnap her was thwarted.

Meanwhile, Stephen is also set to host the 'Deal Or No Deal' reboot.

The presenter recently revealed that he's thrilled to be hosting the show, which was previously fronted by Noel Edmonds.

He said in a statement: "Wow what an opportunity, I’m beyond excited to be hosting the brand-new series. I’ve always been such a huge fan of the show, so much so, I’ve been practising at home with small cereal boxes!

"It looks so simple but it's an incredibly compelling game for both those playing and the viewers watching at home. It’s one of the greatest shows of all time and to be the new host is an honour! I can’t wait to get started."
