Hamish Gaman has left the competition after injuring his finger.
Faye Brookes' professional skating partner Hamish Gaman has sadly had to withdraw from Dancing On Ice.
ITV have announced the news in a statement, and have also confirmed that Faye will continue in the competition.
A spokesperson said: "Sadly we can confirm that Hamish Gaman, who has been partnered with Faye Brookes, has had to withdraw from the competition. We thank him for all his hard work and wish him the very best as he takes some time out to allow his injury to fully heal."
Hamish suffered an injury whilst putting on a sock on the ice, which he spoke about during last week's show.
He had a follow-up examination this week, where it was decided by medical experts that he should not continue in the competition.
It is essential for Hamish to take time to allow his injury to heal properly to safeguard against any long-term damage.
Faye Brookes will continue in the competition, and Matt Evers - who was partnered with Denise Van Outen before she left due to injury - will be her new partner.
