Dancing On Ice boss hints Katie Price could appear teasing ‘watch this space’ – after Caprice quits – The Sun
DANCING On Ice boss hints Katie Price could appear on the show teasing 'watch this space' – after Caprice Bourret quit.
The show's associate creative director Dan Whiston admits the controversial reality star would be "outspoken and fun" on the show.
"I've always said Katie Price would be a good signing," he told new! magazine.
"She'd be quite outspoken and fun."
When asked if the show has reached out to Katie, he added: "Not yet, but watch this space.
"Every year we're looking for the next challenge."
Caprice left the ITV show under a cloud of controversy this weekend, having accused her skating partner Hamish Gaman of bullying her.
The Sun Online revealed yesterday that the 48-year-old model failed to turn up to rehearsals after Hamish broke his silence on their split.
Despite almost crying with happiness when she was matched with him, their relationship spectacularly crumbled and Caprice became the first celebrity in the show's history to dump her professional skating partner.
And Caprice didn't answer calls from bosses as she went missing a day after Hamish said he "wasn't OK".
The 36-year-old skater said he was "overwhelmed" by support from viewers, but added: "Honestly, I'm not okay, but I'd like to thank [girlfriend] Amelia, my pro family and ITV for doing all they can to support me."
Hamish added: "I'm comforted knowing the truth always comes out in the end, and I hope we can focus on the skating now."
Caprice and Hamish made their debut on the second episode of the series, landing second place on the leader-board with 25.5 points out of 40 after dancing a routine to Lewis Capaldi's Some You Loved.
But just seven days later they pulled out of the live show after "parting ways".
Show insiders branded her a "diva and lazy" and claimed she and Hamish "grew to hate each other" after clashes backstage.
But the real reason behind the shock split has never been revealed.
Caprice was later paired up with Oscar Peter and returned to perform just days later, while Hamish remained on the show to perform in group routines.Caprice revealed a series of nasty looking bruises on her body yesterday, telling fans they were "war wounds".
She added: "Oscar and I have been working hard. Hope to impress the judges this week."
Last week the model was spotted with a mystery black eye, which insiders claimed were not caused during rehearsals for the show.
A spokesman for Dancing on Ice declined to comment on Caprice's departure.
