Donna Air has had her ice skates stolen ahead of her first performance on "Dancing On Ice".

The 38-year-old star is due to compete on the ITV show this Sunday (14.01.18) with her professional partner Mark Hanretty but was left distraught when she returned to her car after training at the gym on Monday (08.01.18) to discover it had been broken into and her skates and skate bag had been taken.

Donna has taken to Twitter to offer a reward for the return of her skates because they are moulded to her feet and any replacement pair won't be ready in time for her routine this weekend.

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)"
