Didi Conn has taken a break from her Dancing On Ice training to attend the premiere of Cirque du Soleil’s Totem.

The Grease star was joined on the red carpet by EastEnders actor Danny Dyer and his wife Joanna Mas, as well as Dame Kelly Holmes, Kelly Brook and new Question Time host Fiona Bruce.

Brook opted for a plunging black double-breasted dress and was accompanied by boyfriend Jeremy Parisi, who wrapped up against the cold in a black turtleneck and grey jacket.

Grease actress Conn, 67, was among the first stars to take to the ice on Sunday in the first episode of the new series of the skating show. She was joined at the premiere by her skating partner Lukas Rozycki.

She won over the audience as she recreated her role of Frenchy from the 1978 film, even wearing her original Pink Ladies jacket. But her skating failed to charm judge Jason Gardiner, who said she was “static and a little bit disjointed in places”.

Conn bundled up in a dark coat paired with a bright pink scarf for the red carpet event at the Royal Albert Hall, where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were guests of honour.

They were also joined by Strictly Come Dancing stars Neil and Katya Jones, singer Katherine Jenkins, and former Great British Bake Off star Candice Brown.

The professional dancers both looked chic in dark suits while Jenkins also opted for a trouser suit and plunging black top.
