It was also reported that she had “thrown a camera crew” off the rink when they were trying to film her rehearsals with her professional skating partner Matt Evers.
Well Collins has now addressed the rumours in her Instagram story, and admits that the coverage has made her want to quit the show.
“I’ve been really been really devastated by all the hurtful press reports this week that haven’t been true,” she said. “I’ve got the shakes where I’ve been so upset.
“But yeah, please don’t believe what’s being put out there. Do I want to quit after all the press reports? Yes, but I’m not going to. I’m not giving up, I’m not quitting. I am here with the team.
“It has got me down this week but I really hope you’re going to love Sundays routine and yeah. I just want to be me.”
Addressing rumours that she’d asked the camera crew to leave, she then turned to the crew who was filming with her that day.
“Did I tell you at any point to get your cameras of the ice?” she said, to which the cameraman replied, “No. We’re always here, always rolling, always ready to go.”
“Do you honestly think I would tell a mainstream ITV show or anyone to get a camera off?” Collins continued. “I know people say I’m a diva but it’s kind of fun, it’s a bit of a laugh, it’s not actually true.
“The reason I haven’t been on social [media] before is because me and Matt have been so upset, I’ve been shell-shocked. We didn’t know what to do. We’ve been heartbroken.”
Speaking to RadioTimes.com, he explained, “She’s known as a walker, and I’d like her to be known as a skater. She says she’s committed and we love having her as part of the show. Hopefully she’ll do really well.”
