The semi-final of Dancing on Ice 2020 airs tonight on ITV after weeks of hard work and there are just four celebrities left in the competition. However, after Caprice Bourrett quit the skating show just a couple of weeks ago after “parting ways” with her original partner Hamish Gaman, judges Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean have finally broken their silence over what really happened backstage.
Tonight viewers will watch as Libby Clegg, Ben Hanlin, Joe Swash and Perri Kiely battle it out in the hopes of making it to next week's final.
Sadly, last week saw Coronation Street star Lisa George leave the competition after landing herself in the bottom two with Libby Clegg.
However, just a few weeks ago, host Holly Willoughby told viewers that Caprice Bourret wouldn’t be performing and that she and her partner Hamish Gaman had “parted ways”.
Caprice then announced she had found a new partner with who she would be dancing.

This wasn’t the end of the drama, a couple of weeks later Caprice quit the show completely, however, no one really knows why.
Skating stars and Dancing on Ice judges Jayne and Chris have now opened up about what really happened backstage.
Christopher told MirrorOnline: “It was information passed on to us. It just sounded like they weren’t getting on.
“Caprice wanted to stay in the competition and that was the only way they could resolve it. So that’s what the producers decided to do.”
Jayne explained: “Mostly partnerships do have to get on. When you bring it to the ice, there has to be equal respect and trust. And so you have to make that work.
