The REAL reason Ashley Banjo is MISSING from Dancing On Ice for the second consecutive week as Johnny Weir REPLACES Diversity star yet again

Dancing On Ice judge Ashley Banjo has been replaced for a second week in a row during Sunday night’s ITV show. 

American figure skater Johnny Weir has taken the dancer’s seat on the panel alongside Oti Mabuse, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.

It comes as Ashely, 35, took a temporarily step back from the competition as his hit dance troupe, Diversity hit the road for their Supernova tour last week.

Presenter Holly Willoughby announced the star’s departure during last Sunday’s edition of the show.

Ashley is due to rejoin the judges panel in time for the show’s semi-final.

Before hanging up his skates, Johnny competed on season 29 of Dancing with the Stars in the US.

He placed sixth overall during the 2020 competition and was partnered with Britt Stewart.

It comes after Diversity were forced to cancel their Sheffield show last Saturday evening – February 17 – with only a couple of hours notice.

The former Britain’s Got Talent’s stars were due to perform at Sheffield City Hall as part of their 2023 Supernova tour.

However, Ashley has sustained an injury which has left him ‘struggling to walk’ and unable to perform.

Sharing a post on their official Instagram page, Diversity said: ‘IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!

‘Due to an injury sustained during the Matinee show, tonight’s Diversity performance will not take place.

‘Please keep hold of your tickets and await further information over the coming days.’

Ashley later posted a video on Instagram to explain he was left ‘struggling’ to walk after the incident.

He said: ‘We’re all absolutely gutted about tonight’s show in Sheffield… I’m currently struggling to walk let alone dance with the injury, hence why we have had to postpone so close to the show.

‘But we’re doing our best to work it out and get the shows back on track as soon as we can.

‘We’re so sorry to everyone who has already made their way to the venue. I promise you this is not a decision taken lightly. And I know how disappointing it is for a show to be cancelled last minute. If there was any other way, we would’ve have made it work.

He signed off by saying: ‘Sorry once again and I’ll keep you updated soon. Much love.’
