DANCING on Ice viewers were surprised to see Happy Mondays star Bez in the audience tonight, just days after announcing he had tested positive for coronavirus.
Bez previously claimed he would watch this weekend’s live broadcast from home.
The 57-year-old made his debut on the ice last weekend but less than 24 hours later was forced into self-isolation.
Viewers were surprised to see him cheer on his co-stars from the side of the rink and then give a brief interview to show host Phillip Schofield.
One viewer tweeted, “Shouldn’t Bez be self-isolating? »
Another confused social media user said: ‘Oh wait a minute bez is here lol…’

A third viewer asked, “How come Bez is sitting in the studio? »
Bez was seated next to his dance partner Angela Egaown, who also had to self-isolate last week.
He told Phillip: “I was one of the lucky ones who had no symptoms. »
While the isolation period remains at 10 days, someone can end it sooner if they receive a negative lateral flow test after five days of self-isolation.
Bez did not expect to leave solitary confinement so soon.
He told The Star: “I had a positive test. I’m gutted because I’m going to miss practice but I can’t wait to skate on the show again for week three and I’m going to settle at home and cheer on my mates who are skating this weekend. »
