Former Dancing On Ice contestant Caprice Bourret has been banned from the show's final, according to new reports following her decision to quit.
Dancing On Ice is fast drawing to this year's final as Sunday's semi-final set to trim down the number of couples even more.
But sources claimed Caprice Bourret, 48, quit the talent show weeks after missing a show and very publicly slammed ITV over an alleged lack of support.
The hopeful skater clashed with skating pro-partner Hamish Gaman after "parting ways" with 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.
A show insider alleged to The Daily Star ahead of the final that bosses "don't want her there" while Caprice hasn't been a part of the show for weeks.
Amid her hitting out at ITV, a source told the publication: "Producers want the final to be a celebration. There is so much planned for the big night. So the last thing they want is for the focus to be on Caprice.
"They don't want her there. Her exit is not something they want to dwell on. So everyone will be back apart from her."
ITV declined to comment.
The Mirror Online has reached out to Caprice's representatives.
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."
