Mystery: Dancing On Ice’s Caprice Bourret failed to address the reason behind Hamish Gaman being axed as her partner on Sunday’s edition of the skating show

Earlier in the episode Caprice referenced her partner swap and simply said: ‘I missed last week because I’m no longer skating with Hamish.’

Caprice went on to say that her first live performance was ‘overwhelming’ and she was ‘nervous and excited’ for Sunday’s routine with her new partner.

She added: ‘I’ve been out of the game for a week and I feel I’ve taken 10 steps back. I know I have a lot to prove, we’re as ready as we’re going to be.’

Following their performance, Caprice admitted it had been a ‘tough week’ but still avoided mentioning why she is no longer partnered with Hamish.

Caprice and Oscar received a total of 25 for their first performance together, 6 from Ashley, 6.5 from John, 6 from Jayne and 6.5 from Chris.

Chris advised to try and start skating using one foot rather than always being on two feet while on the ice. 

He said: ‘I know it’s been tough because you’ve only been together a short time, but there needs to be more energy and rapor between the two.’

While Jayne offered her support and said: ‘Considering the time you’ve had to put the routine together, well done.’

Caprice and her partner danced to Glamorous by Fergie in the skate off while Radzi and Jess chose The Greatest by Sia for their ‘passionate’ routine. 

The couple did just enough to see them through to next week as they were unanimously saved by the judging panel 

Ashley said: ‘Based on the content of the skate off, it was much harder than I thought it might be, the couple I’m going to save in Caprice and Oscar.’

While John said: ‘Both well done, I’m going to be straight forward, I’m going to save Caprice and Oscar.’

Sealing the deal, Chris said: ‘Both fighting for the position, one was passionate the other was technical, I’m saving Caprice and Oscar.’

Jayne noted that she would also have saved Caprice and Oscar, meaning Radzi was the third celebrity to be voted off.  

The show got off to an awkward start on Sunday after fans claimed that they could hear booing from the audience when Caprice Bourret entered the rink.

One viewer wrote: ‘The crowd booing Caprice… talk about awkward. #DancingOnIce’, while another typed: ‘Caprice being booed is EXACTLY what she deserves. As does her going home tonight’.

‘Omg wait is Caprice getting booed by the audience this week? It’s what she deserves tbh lol’, a third chimed.

Another viewer added: ‘Let’s make this happen. NO VOTING FOR CAPRICE!! The judges will probably save her coz her skating isn’t terrible but if we place her there week after week they will have to get the hint. Might need to put another favorite in the bottom with her to force their hand.’

Caprice appeared to be sporting a swollen left eye as she left a training session alone on Thursday. 

Last week it was revealed Caprice had ‘parted ways’ with her pro partner Hamish and she later confirmed she would now be skating with Oscar.

It is not known how Caprice’s face became swollen, but it has been claimed that it was not caused during ice skating rehearsals, reports The Sun. 

It comes after Caprice changed skating partners after reportedly claiming she was ‘bullied’ by Hamish during training amid their alleged fallout.

The pair were announced to have split at the start of Sunday’s show after allegedly refusing to work together, with Caprice branded a ‘lazy diva’.

A source told the website : ‘Caprice felt she was being pushed far too hard by Hamish in training and said she felt bullied.

‘She struggled to understand Hamish’s complicated instructions and said she felt he was berating her when she couldn’t pick up the moves as easily as some of the other celebs.’

They added: ‘To hear she’s being mocked as a diva because she refused to work with him any longer has been really upsetting for Caprice and she’s not happy.’
