DANCING On Ice pro Hamish Gaman has pulled out of tonight’s show as he tells fans he’s “struggling” after his bitter fall out with Caprice Bourret.
The 36-year-old skater has called his time on the current series of the ITV show as the “worst of my life” in an emotional statement on Instagram.

He wrote: “I’m sad to say that I’ve pulled out of appearing on Dancing On Ice tonight.
“The past three-and-a-half months have been the worst of my life, and I’m struggling. It might look like things have been calming down, but they aren’t.
“Numerous defamatory articles have been stopped from running in the press over the past few weeks. These untrue stories are continually being fed to the press by a ‘source’.
“I’ve been told by various people where these articles and source quotes are coming from, and it’s clear that they’re trying to destroy my reputation.
“It’s become relentless and I feel extremely vulnerable. I’m asking them to stop.”
The Sun Online previously reported how Hamish was regularly upset by Caprice’s behaviour in their sessions together and felt like he was constantly walking on eggshells.
The ice champ has now told how he was called an “exemplary pro” when the footage of his practice sessions with Caprice was analysed.

He continued: “I desperately want to move on from all of this and focus on the skating. I’ve done absolutely nothing wrong, and was told by the team who reviewed all the rehearsal footage that I was an ‘exemplary pro’.
“I can only hope that this will all be over soon. I’m so sorry to not be on the ice tonight, but I couldn’t face it. Thank you for your support and kind messages.”
