Caprice Bourret has left this year’s series of Dancing On Ice, an ITV spokesperson has confirmed.
The businesswoman and model recently split from her professional dance partner Hamish Gaman, a first for the long-running series, for reasons that have not been disclosed.
After taking a week out from competing while a replacement was found, she returned to the live show last Sunday with skater Oscar Peters and the duo placed eighth on the leaderboard with a score of 25 points.
But she has now left the show for good.
An ITV spokesperson told RadioTimes.com: “Caprice will not be taking any further part in the series.”
A source had previously told The Daily Star that Caprice was intending to quit the show as criticism from its fans has taken a toll on her.
Bourret is the second celebrity to leave this year’s Dancing On Ice outside of the usual vote-off process, following Michael Barrymore’s early departure in December due to injury.
Former partner Gaman remains a dancer on the show, participating in the professional group routines, but recently said on Twitter that he was “not okay” following the split.
