Why Caprice quit Dancing On Ice as star leaves ahead of latest live show

Why did Caprice leave Dancing On Ice?

Caprice Bourret has quit Dancing On Ice ahead of Sunday’s latest live show – here’s all you need to know.


The model has withdrawn from the current series after ‘parting ways’ from her dance partner.

Caprice was originally partnered with professional Hamish Gaman on this year’s line up but they missed the second live show in January.

She was back on the rink last Sunday night with new pro partner Oscar Peter but now it’s been confirmed that Caprice has quit the show.

In a statement, Caprice’s spokesperson said: “It’s true that Caprice is no longer participating in Dancing On Ice. It’s been a hard few months and she’s had to keep silent for contractual reasons.

“Her mental wellbeing has been affected over the last two months and recent stories leaked to the press are not only salacious but extremely hurtful.

“Now she’s taking some time to recover and look after herself and her family.”


ITV confirmed: “Caprice will not be taking any further part in the series.”

Earlier this week, Dancing On Ice pro skater Hamish spoke out in a statement on Twitter and Instagram.

Speaking out for the first time this week, Hamish admitted he was “not okay” but said that the “truth always comes out”.

He posted to his social media accounts: “Hi Everyone. Thank you so much for your kind messages. I’ve been overwhelmed by your love and support – it’s brought me to tears at times.

“Honestly, I’m not okay, but I’d like to thank Amelia, my pro family and ITV for doing all that they can to support me.

“I’m comforted knowing the truth always comes out in the end, and I hope we can focus on the skating again now.”

Hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will be back tonight with the latest Dancing On Ice live show.

Dancing On Ice airs at 6PM Sunday night on ITV.


This week will be a fairytale themed special featuring an appearance from the cast of Disney On Ice.

Alongside Caprice’s departure, Libby Clegg will also not be performing this week due to illness.
