Suffering from gastroenteritis throughout the week, the Paralympian has been advised by doctors to rest from the ITV contest. However, Clegg will return to the competition next week.
Confirming the news on Twitter, Dancing on Ice wished the skater a speedy recovery.
Wishing you all the best Libby – we’ll miss you tonight, but rest up and we hope to see you back next week! ???? pic.twitter.com/1Mt4Dz2nTg

Clegg isn’t the only Dancing on Ice contestant to contract a bug, with Maura Higgins struggling with illness earlier this week.
Posting a picture snuggled up in bed on Instagram, the Love Island star wrote: “My training was cancelled today as my temperature was too high! Praying I’m good for Sunday but might need a miracle.”
Fortunately, Higgins later recovered and is expected to appear in tonight’s show.
The contestant recently split from her professional dance partner Hamish Gaman, Bourret later pairing up with Oscar Peters.
Gaman remains a dancer on the show, participating in the professional group routines. However, he later said on Twitter he was “not okay” following the separation.
