Dancing On Ice pro Hamish Gaman to RETURN to show after pulling out amid the aftermath of drama with ex-partner Caprice Bourret

Dancing On Ice professional Hamish Gaman will appear on Sunday night’s episode – his first time on the show since quitting last week following his nasty clash with former contestant Caprice Bourret.

Hamish, 36, didn’t appear last week, declaring he was having the worst time of his life, as the aftermath of the feud with Caprice, 48, escalated, before she eventually quit the series.

But Hamish took to social media on Sunday to post: ‘Hi everyone. I’m excited to be returning to @dancingonice tonight. Thank you to everyone who reached out to me when I was really struggling.

‘It just goes to show how powerful a few kind words can be. When I felt like I was under attack, you were there for me, and I’m so grateful for your support and kindness.’

Tagging his pals from last year’s series, he added: ‘To my friends in this photo: @saaraaalto @jamesjordan1978 @alex_lukasz @vanessabauer_skates and @wes.nelson your support and kindness means more to me than you’ll ever know. See everybody on the ice tonight #dancingonice.’

This comes just a week after releasing the following emotional statement: ‘The past three-and-a-half months have been the worst of my life, and I’m struggling. It might look like things have been calming down, but they aren’t.

‘I desperately want to move on from all of this and focus on the skating. I’ve done absolutely nothing wrong, and was told by the team who reviewed all the rehearsal footage that I was an “exemplary pro”.

‘I can only hope that this will all be over soon. I’m so sorry to not be on the ice tonight, but I couldn’t face it. Thank you for your support and kind messages.’

Despite accusations from both sides that Caprice and Hamish were ‘bullying’ each other, fans threw their support behind the male skater.

So sad: The professional skater was due to take part in Sunday's show alongside his fellow pros, but he took to social media on Sunday afternoon to declare that he 'couldn't face it'

Hamish’s return to the show came after his celebrity partner Caprice sensationally quit the show amid claims the pair had a fall-out.

Caprice was reportedly left too scared to speak during Dancing on Ice training after Hamish enforced a ‘three strikes and you’re out rule’ if she didn’t do exactly what he said – making her feel like mistakes weren’t allowed.

The mother-of-two quit the show to ‘recover and look after herself and her family’ – days after she was assigned a new professional partner to perform with. 

Confirming reports, a spokeswoman for Caprice told MailOnline: ‘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.’

'Not okay': Last week, Hamish addressed his fallout with Caprice, tweeting: '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'
