Caprice Bourret has revealed her husband wasn’t keen on her taking part in Dancing on Ice because he is so worried about the show’s romantic curse.

Just like the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, the ITV contest is known for its contestants getting together with their skating pro partners after spending many intimate hours together in training.

Bourret admitted that her millionaire financier husband Ty Comfort was nervous about the risks involved and told OK! magazine: “When I first told him that I wanted to do this show, he was a little bit dubious about it, I'm not going to lie.

“I mean, there are these hot professional skaters who you are literally spending more time with you than your own spouse, so that was a conversation we had to have. And I understand the worry on Ty’s part because this experience is unbelievably intimate.”

However, Bourret, 48, assured her other half that he had nothing to worry about when it came to her loyalty to their marriage.

She said: “He doesn’t need to worry because my husband is so hot. I said to him, ‘Look in the mirror, are you joking?’”

The former model is skating with Hamish Gaman, who made the Dancing on Ice final last year with his partner Saara Aalto.

Many relationships have been formed and broken on the ice, including Sylvain Longchambon who got together with partner Jennifer Metcalfe and after they split, married another of his celebrity partners, Samia Ghadie.

Last week, skater Brianne Delcourt announced her fourth romance from the show, this time with her celebrity partner for this series Kevin Kilbane.

She has previously had relationships with contestants Danny Young, Sam Attwater and Matt Lapinskas.

Another of the show’s most famous couples is Frankie Poultney and David Seaman, who married after meeting on the programme.
