Dancing on Ice threw a massive curveball on Sunday's live show (January 19), after it was revealed that one celebrity would not be appearing.

Hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield announced at the start of the show that Caprice and professional partner Hamish Gaman had "parted ways".

"Hamish remains very much part of our professional team and we hope to have Caprice back on the ice next week," ITV said afterwards.

However, the full reason behind their split remains a mystery. Caprice will return with a different partner for next week's show, having been given a free pass to the next round.

Caprice and Hamish performed together last week, winning a decent score of 25.5 out of a possible 40 from judges John Barrowman, Ashley Banjo, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.

This is the first time a couple has separated in this manner on the show, or any show that we can think of for that matter.

ITV has said that they "hope" Caprice will return next week. The 48-year-old model previously appeared on reality shows such as Celebrity Big Brother and Celebrity Come Dine With Me.

Hamish finished in third place last year with his partner, singer Saara Aalto. Instead, Hamish did appear in the group skate performance on Sunday.
