"I’m friends with both of them and I’m skating with Hamish at the moment, Caprice I haven’t spoken to as I think she is still working things out, I just hope that they both get back to their normal selves."

The mum-of-two sensationally quit the ice-skating competition after she split with dancing partner Hamish Gaman.

She went on to refute claims that she bullied the pro ice skater.

Her reps said: "This is absolutely not true. Caprice only ever complimented Hamish on how beautiful and elegant his skating was.

"Caprice received very little support from ITV and had to seek external help of her own accord. She has been seeing a counselling psychologist as well as two doctors on an ongoing basis.

Metro also quoted Caprice's reps, who said: "It’s true that Caprice is no longer participating in Dancing On Ice.

"It’s been a hard few months and she’s had to keep silent for contractual reasons.

"Her mental wellbeing has been affected over the last two months and recent stories leaked to the press are not only salacious but extremely hurtful. Now she’s taking some time to recover and look after herself and her family."

He told The Sun: "I'm loving it and I'll be back next year. The judges are all getting along well."

He also teased this week's show, saying that two 'really good' skaters would end up in the bottom two.
