It has been claimed that former Dancing On Ice contestant Candice was reportedly "too scared to speak" to her first professional partner Hamish Gaman.
According to Mail Online, Caprice Bourret, 48, felt like mistakes weren't allowed as ex-pro partner Hamish enforced a "three strikes and you're out" rule on the ice.
An Insider close to the model reportedly told the publication that she was denied extra support when practising lifts on the ice.
The source allegedly told the publication: "Caprice could barely walk for three days after this incident but she felt too intimidated to complain. She never missed a training day and was never late. She was so eager to learn as much as possible to compete at her best in the live shows.
"She felt intimidated by Hamish and her self confidence diminished as a result. Caprice is a hard worker who was so eager to learn everything and to advance quickly, but after a couple of weeks training with Hamish she became quiet and withdrawn.
Daily Star Online have approached representatives for ITV and Caprice, who have denied the claims made.
An ITV spokesperson 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 before, during and after the series is on air."
Hamish spoke out about allegations made against him in a post on Instagram.
Taking to Instagram, Hamish admitted he's "not ok" but thanked his family and ITV for supporting him past the altercation.
He wrote: "Hi everyone. Thank you so much for your kind messages. I’ve been overwhelmed by your love and support—it’s brought me to tears at times.
Honestly, I’m not okay, but I’d like to thank Amelia, my pro-family and ITV for doing all that they can to support me.
"I’m comforted knowing the truth always comes out in the end, and I hope we can focus on the skating again now," he concluded.
Dancing On Ice continues Sunday at 6pm on ITV
