Last week, she didn’t dance as she had parted ways with Hamish Gaman.

In her pre-dance VT, Caprice breezed over the matter of her splitting from her original pro, looking more to the future.

She reflected: “My first live performance was so overwhelming. I missed last week’s show because I’m no longer skating with Hamish. I’m really nervous but I’m really excited.

“I’ve been out of the game for the week and I feel like I’ve taken 10 steps back.”

Caprice and Oscar then performed an energetic cheerleader-style routine to Hey Mickey by Toni Basil, which seemed to go well apart from a tiny stumble on the Judges’ Challenge.

Speaking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield at the end of her performance, Caprice admitted: “It’s been a tough week.”

She failed to impress the judges, landing in the bottom half of the leaderboard with a score of 25.

John Barrowman said she needed to work on her connection with Oscar, while Christopher Dean proposed she worked on her lifts and landing, adding how the pro needs to be aware of using all of the ice.

Last week, Holly made an announcement saying how Caprice wouldn’t be skating on account of her partner drama.

Holly confirmed  Caprice would still be remaining part of the series and would “hopefully” return next week, although she wouldn’t be performing.
