Dancing On Ice 's semi final will air just 12 minutes of skating in the whole two hour show as the four pairs remaining in the competition take to the ice.

Coronation Street star Faye Brookes and her partner Matt Evers, rapper Lady Leshurr and her partner Brendyn Hadfield, former Olympian Colin Jackson and his partner Klabera Komini, and radio presenter Sonny Jay and his partner Angela Egan are the final four pairs in the ITV show.

Rebekah Vardy and her partner Andy Buchanan lost their place in the show last week after a skate off with Lady Leshurr.

The WAG accidentally messed up her routine, whispering to Andy "I screwed up, I screwed up".

In Sunday's semi-final, each pair will perform two 90-second routines before a public vote and a skate off to decide who will make it to the final.

A source told The Sun: "With the reduced numbers, there’s going to be a lot of filling for time."

A spokesperson for the show confirmed to The Mirror that there was the same number of pairs in the semi-final as always.

They said: "Numbers are not reduced for the semi-final this year.

"There are four couples performing in the show on Sunday which is the same amount of competitors that have featured in the semi-final for Dancing On Ice in each of its previous 12 series."

ITV recently announced it was cutting the series short by moving the final forward by a week after seven stars, five of which were the celebrities, were forced to drop out due to various injuries.

An ITV Spokesperson issued a statement that said: "ITV have taken the decision to move the final of Dancing on Ice forward by one week.
