Caprice Bourret, 48, has taken an unexpected swipe at Strictly Come Dancing as she explained why she signed up for Dancing on Ice 2020. The businesswoman gushed about the ITV reality series being “the most glamorous show on TV”, but snubbed the BBC dance competition in the process.
She also claimed Dancing on Ice is much more challenging for celebrity contestants than Strictly is.

“I think it’s more glam than Strictly, and it’s a lot harder too.”(sic)
The model continued: “I thought I would like it, but I actually love it.
