Dancing On Ice: Lisa George breaks down in TEARS after she takes a tumble

Dancing On Ice star Lisa George was left in tears during Sunday's Fairytale Week special, as she suffered an unfortunate fall during her performance.

The Coronation Street star was distraught after she fell during her performance to Björk's It's Oh So Quiet, and had to be consoled by judges Ashley Banjo and John Barrowman.

It came as host Holly Willoughby also confirmed that Caprice Bourret would be taking 'no further part' in Dancing On Ice, after news earlier in the day that she had quit the show.

At the start of the show, hosts Holly and Phil confirmed that Caprice would be taking 'no further part' in Dancing On Ice after days of speculation surrounding her split from pro Hamish. 

Despite news earlier in the day that the model had quit amid her split from professional partner Hamish Gaman, many viewers took to Twitter to share their reaction to the news of Caprice's departure. 

It came as seven couples took to the ice for a sparkling Fairytale Week, following the news that Paralympic star Libby Clegg had also been forced to pull out of this week's show due to illness.

At the beginning of the show, Holly and Phillip Schofield told viewers: 'Unfortunately Caprice will not be taking any further part of the series and unfortunately Libby Clegg won't be skating tonight because she is unwell, but hopes to be back next week.' 

News of Caprice's departure sparked a thunderous reception from viewers, with many sharing their relief that Caprice had left the show, after she narrowly dodged elimination last week.

After Caprice ended up in the skate-off last week, many viewers claimed she should have been sent home by the judging panel over Blue Peter presenter Radzi Chinyanganya and his professional partner Jess Hatfield.

Earlier in the day Caprice confirmed to MailOnline that she quit Dancing On Ice as she hit back at her former skating partner Hamish.

The model's rep told MailOnline on Sunday: 'It's true that Caprice is no longer participating in Dancing On Ice. It's been a hard few months and she's had to keep silent for contractual reasons.

'Her mental wellbeing has been affected over the last two months and recent stories leaked to the press are not only salacious but extremely hurtful. Now she's taking some time to recover and look after herself and her family.'

ITV confirmed to MailOnline: 'Caprice will not be taking any further part in the series.' 

Caprice parted ways with her skating partner two weeks ago, and apparently failed to turn up to rehearsals on Saturday after Hamish broke his silence on the split and claimed 'the truth will out' on Friday on Instagram.

A source close to Caprice said of this: 'She is deeply disgusted by the recent post from Hamish on his Instagram. It is a clear indication that not all is well on the western front. 

'He has been made out to be Mother Theresa and Caprice has been horrifically vilified and slandered unfairly. Hamish said 'the truth will come out' - and Caprice very much looks forward to this.

'She and other members of the show
