Dancing On Ice professional Hamish Gaman has confirmed he’ll be returning to the rink for tonight’s show following his brief hiatus.
The skater had pulled out from the ITV competition last week after stating that the past three months had been ‘the worst of his life’, but fans will be delighted to know he’ll be back this evening.
‘Hi everyone. I’m excited to be returning to @dancingonice tonight,’ Hamish wrote on Twitter, announcing the exciting news.
‘Thank you to everyone who reached out to me when I was really struggling. To my friends in this photo, your support and kindness means more than you’ll ever know.
‘See everybody on #DancingOnIce tonight.’
Hamish pulled out of Dancing On Ice last Sunday just hours before the show was due to air over his mental health.
‘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.
‘Numerous defamatory articles have been stopped from running in the press over the past few weeks. These untrue stories are continually being fed to the press by a “source”. I’ve been told by various people where these articles and source quotes are coming from, and it’s clear that they’re trying to destroy my reputation.
‘It’s become relentless and I feel extremely vulnerable. I’m asking them to stop.’
He added: ‘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 not to be on the ice tonight, but I couldn’t face it. ‘Thank you for your support and kind messages.’
Dancing On Ice returns tonight at 6pm on ITV.
