Caprice Bourret has revealed that the amount of stress she was under during her 2020 appearance on Dancing on Ice saw her lose a huge amount of weight.
The model, 48, left the show in January after clashing with skating pro-partner Hamish Gaman amid rumours differing over who was at fault.
Later, she briefly skated with a new pro partner Oscar Peter but this was only for one show before she announced she had left.
Now, the bombshell has shared that her stint on the show resulted in her losing 16 stone – which she attributes to stress.
Speaking to OK! magazine, the catwalk queen dished: “I actually ended up losing 16lb but I’ve put 6lb back on.
“I’m still down from a size 10 to an 8 though. I’m now doing this great class called Barrecore. It’s the most amazing exercise I’ve ever done. It’s using your own body weight and staying at certain positions for a very long time. I do it every day.”
When quizzed if she thought her shrinking frame was as a result of the stress put on her during her skating stint, she added: “Yes, I think it all was.”
Following her departure from the series, Caprice very publicly slammed ITV over an alleged lack of support.
Caprice told The Sun after she left the show: “There is no duty of care. In America, they have to have it or they get sued.
“It’s just thinking about other people, it’s just common decency, I think, when it comes to these kind of destructive shows.
“We have to have a soul at some point for God’s sakes.”
ITV refuted the claims on the grounds they take duty of care seriously.
A statement read: “We take our duty of care very seriously. We have always been fully committed to ensuring that everyone involved on Dancing On Ice is fully supported.”
Amid bullying allegations, a spokesperson for ITV said: “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.”
