Caprice has been keeping a low-profile over the last few months, after bowing out of this year’s series of Dancing On Ice following a ‘tough few months’.
She had started on the series with professional skating partner Hamish Gaman, but was later forced to pull out of the show after the pair became embroiled in a bullying row.
The star was reportedly left too scared to speak during Dancing On Ice training after Hamish enforced a ‘three strikes and you’re out rule’ if she didn’t do exactly what he said – making her feel like mistakes were not allowed.
Caprice was put into an alternative pairing with Oscar Peter but subsequently decided to quit the ITV series altogether to ‘recover and look after herself and her family’.

Hamish later told Hello! magazine that he was moving on from the drama after deciding to propose to fiancée Amelia, who he met on Tinder four years ago.
He said: ‘I’ve known for a long time that I want to spend the rest of my life with Amelia but what I’ve been through made me keen to make that commitment to her sooner than we’d anticipated.
‘For the past few months I’ve been in a dark place which I couldn’t have got through without her. Recent events have made me realise just how much I love her. Planning our wedding together has brought light to the darkness.
Hamish continued: ‘Without Amelia I don’t know what I would have done. When you’re in the public eye, you expect to read and hear gossip about yourself, but I never thought it would affect my mental health as much as it did.
‘I found it hard to sleep and eat, and would wake up with anxiety. Amelia has been my absolute rock.’
Support: Hamish denied Caprice’s bullying claims and said the ordeal took him to a ‘dark place’, but he praised his fiancee Amelia for supporting him through it and the pair are now planning to marry in December
