Hamish Gaman has withdrawn from competing on Dancing On Ice after injuring his finger.

TV spokesperson told OK! Online: "Sadly we can confirm that Hamish Gaman, who has been partnered with Faye Brookes, has had to withdraw from the competition.

"We thank him for all his hard work and wish him the very best as he takes some time out to allow his injury to fully heal."

Earlier today Hamish admitted he tore a tendon in his hand after putting on a sock.

The star had made last minute changes to his routine in the hopes that he could go ahead with his performance, despite the advice against it by doctors.

However, he later confessed he may need surgery after the accident, which lead to him leaving the show altogether today.

Hamish and Vanessa are the series' record breaking sixth couple to bow out of the competition.

Denise Van Outen, Rufus Hound, Billie Faiers and Joe-Warren Plant have all been forced to withdraw from the show due to injuries and positive coronavirus test results since the series started five weeks ago.

Hamish told Heat radio: "Unfortunately I'm in a situation where I may have to withdraw if I need surgery. I would be heartbroken, Faye has worked so hard.

"Faye wasn't fully aware but I snapped a tendon in my hand and I was advised before the show that I'm putting my finger at risk for the rest of my life here.

"It's one of those scenarios where there was a lot of people dropping out of the show and I love this show so much and I didn't want to let the team down.

"They strapped up my hand so I could get through the show. We had to make a lot of changes to the routine last minute, we re-choreographed the whole second-half.

"Faye did incredible to learn the routine last minute. We had to change all of our lifts because of my hand, as I couldn't do certain movements."

Dancing On Ice will not air a live episode this weekend, instead putting on a 'best of' show to help the celebrities and their professional partners recover.

A spokesperson told OK! online: "ITV have taken the decision to pause Dancing on Ice this week and there will be no live show on Sunday 21st February.
