According to the Mail Online, a fan asked the star: “Craziest thing you were asked to do on DOI?”

Hamish then went on to claim: “I was asked by a senior member of the creative team to kiss Faye during one of our routines.

“When I said we’d both be uncomfortable doing that and I was concerned about the attention and the wellbeing of our partners, it was suggested that they could make it look like we kissed instead using camera angles.”

“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).”

His exit marked the second time the skating pro had been forced to withdraw from the show.
