Back on the ice and working hard

Caprice Bourret has broken her silence on her new Dancing On Ice partner.

After enduring a torrid week, which saw her break up with pro skater partner Hamish Gaman, the 48-year-old mum-of-two has not only revealed the name of her new dance partner but also said she’s ‘excited’ to begin working with him.

ITV announced that she would be returning to the show after failing to appear on last week’s instalment.

Caprice responded to a Tweet from a fan, who said: “I look forward to seeing you back.

“Was a bit weird last week with that announcement, who’s your new partner are you allowed to tell?”

“Oscar Peters,” she replied, “he is amazing.”

In last week’s show, host Holly Willoughby shocked fans when she read out a statement, saying that Caprice and Hamish had ‘parted ways’.

“Unfortunately Caprice and Hamish have parted ways and will not be skating this week,” she revealed.

“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.”
