Dancing On Ice’s Hamish Gaman has praised fiancé Amelia Humfress as his ‘absolute rock’ after falling into a ‘dark place’ after the Caprice Bourret drama.
Hamish admitted that he was ‘not OK’ with what happened between him and Caprice last month, with their frosty relationship eventually resulting in both removing themselves from the competition for the sake of their mental health.
But from the difficult time came unrelenting support from his girlfriend Amelia – and Hamish now admits that it gave him the kick he needed to get down on one knee and propose to him.
Speaking to Hello! Magazine alongside his fiancé, 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,’ he said. ‘Recent events have made me realise just how much I love her.
‘Planning our wedding together has brought light to the darkness.’
The pro ice skater had a mysterious falling out with his celeb partner Caprice during this year’s series of Dancing On Ice, causing them to split as a competing couple.
Hamish was replaced by Oscar Peter for one week of the series, before Caprice quit completely.
Taking time out himself after admitting the drama had taken its toll, Hamish is now focusing on the positive and has started planning his wedding.
They’ve now set the date for December for their happy day, after four years of dating after meeting each other on Tinder.
‘Without Amelia I don’t know what I would have done,’ he said. ‘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,’ he added.
The full interview is in Hello! magazine, out now.
Dancing On Ice finale airs Sunday from 6pm on ITV.
