The good news comes after Hamish's alleged fallout with Caprice Bourret on the ITV show, which saw him only skate one routine on the current series.

Hamish has admitted that he decided to pop the question "sooner" than the couple had "anticipated" after his partner supported him through a difficult few months, seemingly referring to his feud with Caprice.

He told the publication: "I've known for a long time that I want to spend the rest of my life with Amelia, but what I've been through made me keen to make that commitment to her sooner than we'd anticipated.

"For the past few months I've been in a dark place which I couldn't have got through without her."

The loved-up pair plan to get married in December.

"I've been overwhelmed by your love and support - it's brought me to tears at times. Honestly, I'm not okay, but I'd like to thank Amelia, my pro family and ITV for doing all they can to support me.
