Fans of the show have been eagerly awaiting the start of the new series since the line-up was revealed last year.

Dancing On Ice bosses have made a number of big changes to the new series, including two new dancers and a revamp to the studio – after it was plagued with sound issues.

Host Phillip Schofield gave fans a sneak peek behind-the-scenes on his usual show, This Morning.

Speaking to hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, the 56-year-old said: “Happy New Year! It’s only right and proper that my first bit of TV I do after Christmas and New Year should be with you guys in This Morning.”

Panning round to give a full view of the studio and ice rink, the presenter told the hosts that they had a “brand new rink”.

He said: “It’s more substantial than it was last year, you may remember, we had a rattling problem with the howling winds, so we’ve rebuilt the studio.

“The studio audience has a capacity of 530 so it’s bigger than it was last year.”

Bookies have already picked their favourites to win the show with ex-Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton, 34, coming out on top.

Kanye West called out on Twitter for being on his phone during Broadway performance

TwitterFacebook

Being on your phone during a stage production is considered pretty rude, especially if it’s opening night, and even if you’re Kanye West.

The artist was called out on Twitter by one of the stars of Cher-inspired musical The Cher Show, Jarrod Spector, for spending time on his phone during Monday’s opening night performance.

West was attending the show with his wife, Kim Kardashian West, a couple that weren’t ever going to blend in with the crowd — or the cast.

“If you look up from your cell phone you’ll see we’re doing a show up here,” tweeted Spector, who plays Sonny Bono, while the performance was underway. Read more…

Jussara Lee Taking Her Message of Sustainability to a Multisensory Performance in New York

SECONDHAND NEWS: Committed to sustainability as an individual, designer and business owner, Jussara Lee used that ideology as a rookie costume designer for “Inside the Wild Heart.”
Based on the writings of one of Brazil’s most famous writers, Clarice Lispector, the immersive theatrical experience was conceived by Andressa Furletti and Debora Balardini and directed by Linda Wise. The show bows Thursday in New York. Lee was initially approached by the Brazilian theater company Group.BR about helping to fund the production. She offered to pitch in with the cast’s attire instead.
Lee described Lispector’s work as “amazing,” but the project’s upcycling is what really sold her. Working with a low budget meant “that it was all about secondhand and vintage shopping. I was very interested in that and told them, ‘We’ll make adjustments. We’ll make things fit. That’s what we do best,’” said Lee, adding that she liked the idea of reusing “things that had already been extracted and polluted. There is so much clean-up to do and so much stuff in this world.””
In addition, the project forced her to switch up her usual routine and do some thrifting at Beacon’s Closet in Brooklyn and “all the other underlings.” It was also an

DIVA MOMENT: Alessandra Facchinetti has designed the costumes for Giuseppe Verdi’s Don Carlo opera, which will take place on Oct. 27 at the St. Gallen Theater in Switzerland.
Facchinetti is the former creative director of Tod’s women’s collections, a role she left in 2016 after joining the luxury brand three years earlier. Before that, Facchinetti, a former Gucci and Valentino head designer, had worked with Pinko to launch the Uniqueness brand in 2011.
Facchinetti designed approximately 90 costumes for the main roles, created in the atelier of the St. Gallen Theater. These are uniforms, tailcoats and capes designed for men and sumptuous dresses for women. The designer emphasized the selection of dark colors, ranging from plum to petrol green.

Conducting the orchestra is the Lithuanian Modestas Pitrenas, and the opera is directed by Nicola Berloffa.
Thanking Berloffa for the opportunity and his guidance, Facchinetti said she admired “his contemporary, but at the same time respectful, vision of the opera. We had a wonderful, professional exchange.”
The designer, whose father is musician Roby Facchinetti and whose brother is DJ and singer Francesco Facchinetti, expressed her passion for music, cinema and theater, and said that she always believed she would have liked to try her hand
