What did the fans say?

Another said: “I wouldn’t blame him if he left for good.”

I wouldn’t blame him if he left for good.

A third commented on the forum: “I don’t see Hamish being back either.

“Strictly is a real plum gig for dancers but I’m not really sure if DOI is quite as good of a career option for skaters.

“Having two years in a row where things started looking promising and went to pot would probably make anyone at least reconsider their future on the show,” they added.

How did Hamish announce his departure?

After announcing his exit from this year’s series, Hamish took to Instagram to share his thoughts with fans.

“I’m heartbroken that I’ll no longer be skating with @faye_brookes on @dancingonice,” he began.

“I’m so grateful that I don’t need any surgery on my finger, but if I stay in the show I could have an accident and make my injury much worse (it is series 13).”
