James Jordan has taken a swipe at Caprice following her split from DOI partner Hamish.
James Jordan has waded in to the drama surrounding Caprice and Hamish Gaman, taking to Twitter to defend his former Dancing On Ice co-star.
It was announced just over a week ago that Caprice and Hamish wouldn't be returning to the ice together, and it was later claimed that this was due to Caprice claiming that she was being 'bullied' by her former skating partner, something that ITV have refuted.
Taking to Twitter, James defended his former DOI co-star, saying: "I spent 5 months working around Hamish from DOI last year and he's a wonderful hard working guy who is lovely. Take from that what you will."
As you all know I never put my opinions on twitter and always shy away from controversy 🙊— James Jordan (@The_JamesJordan) January 26, 2020
However, I’d just like to say I spent 5 months working around Hamish from DOI last year and he’s a wonderful hard working guy who is lovely
Take from that what you will x#DancingOnIce
His words come after ITV was forced to hit back on claims that Caprice had split from Hamish because of his 'bullying' behaviour.
A source previously told The Sun of the alleged fallout: “Caprice’s relationship with Hamish was harmonious at the start but as time went on they became more strained.
“She felt he was pushing her too hard in training and Caprice started to struggle.
“She felt he could have been more patient and they ended up having a big row.”
The insider continued that the partnership “became completely unworkable”, before adding: “It was getting toxic so stopping the partnership was best for everyone."
ITV were recently forced to hit back at claims that Hamish 'bullied' Caprice, saying that they found 'no evidence' of these claims.
They told the Mail Online: "We take allegations of bullying very seriously but found no evidence on Dancing On Ice and we strongly refute any suggestion to the contrary.
"We're very proud of the team, both on and off screen. They produce a fantastic show and we are committed to ensuring that everyone who works on the programme is fully supported."
