The 38-year-old star was forced to buy some new blades last night (09.01.18) after the ones she's been breaking in for the past three months for 'Dancing on Ice' were stolen from the boot of her car on Monday (08.01.18) - five days before she makes her debut.

Donna's professional partner Mark Hanretty took to his Twitter account last night and wrote: "Thanks for everyone's help trying to #findDonnasskates She has a brand spanking new pair which she will work hard to break in for Sunday! @dancingonice (sic)"

Donna enlisted the help of the police at the beginning of the week when she found out that someone had broken into her vehicle and taken her skate bag while she was at the gym.

She tweeted: "@metpoliceuk reward for anyone who FINDS my skates . I'm sure the thief would have dumped them somewhere as of no use to anyone but me ! moulded to my feet and impossible to replace for Sunday (sic)"

Scottish ice skater Mark, 32, has also posted a video pleading for the return of Donna's skates and has started the hashtag #findDonnasskates on Twitter to try and find them.

In the video, he says: "Late last night Donna rang me really upset to tell me her car had been broken into while she was at the gym and her skates and skate bag have been taken. We have show day in five days and my partner has no skates, so bit of a disaster. I'm hoping and praying that the power of social media can recover Donna's boots in time for us to train and compete in Sunday's show, please, please, please."

He has also tweeted: "Just seen the CCTV footage of Donna's car being broken in to. Nasty work! Poor Donna upset & worries but we are off to do some skate shopping now! @dancingonice #findDonnasskates #dancingonice (sic)"

Donna will take to the ice for the first time this Sunday (14.01.18).
