Why have Hamish Gaman and Caprice parted ways on Dancing On Ice?

Dancing on Ice's Hamish Gaman didn't appear on the show on January 19, 2020.

Hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield revealed the news at the start of the show.

Holly said: "Unfortunately Caprice and Hamish have parted ways and will not be skating this week.

"As you saw in our opening number, Hamish remains very much part of our professional team and we hope to have Caprice back on the ice next week."

A source told The Sun: “Caprice’s relationship with Hamish was harmonious at the start but as time went on they became more strained.

“She felt he was pushing her too hard in training and Caprice started to struggle. She felt he could have been more patient and they ended up having a big row."

They added: “In the end it became completely unworkable for them to carry on and after speaking with the bosses they called it quits. It was getting toxic so stopping the partnership was best for everyone.”

While another insider revealed to The Sun Online: "Caprice was mean to Hamish during rehearsals - it was often in front of other cast and crew - and he was left very upset by it because he's such a professional and a gentle giant.

"She was also reluctant to put in the hours or effort which led to tensions between them. Hamish found it difficult dealing with her, but he wasn't the only one - Caprice isn't well-liked backstage."

They continued: "It's a shame as Hamish is very popular and all of his other celebrity partners have always loved him because he's so kind and patient."
