Faye Brookes posts powerful message as her DOI partner drops out of show

Coronation Street babe Faye Brookes has taken to Instagram to break her silence after her skating partner Hamish was forced to pull out of Dancing On Ice 2021.

The actress, 33, logged into social media to share a motivational quote with her army of fans.

Keen to stay as up beat as possible, Faye wrote: "No matter what.

"Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start again. Here we go."

Alongside the message, Faye shared a stunning professionally-taken shot of her rocking a velvet bra and statement green patterned trousers.

Faye is now paired with Matt Evers, who was initially partnered with Denise Van Outen before she also had to drop out due to an injury.

On Tuesday, ITV confirmed Hamish would no longer be able to continue in the competition after snapping a tendon in his finger.

Hamish sustained the injury whilst putting on a sock – joking about the embarrassing fail live on last Sunday's show.

He was initially signed off by the medical team as safe to skate but had to adjust some parts of his and Faye's routine.

Sadly, a follow up examination this week has resulted in medical experts concluding that he is unable to continue.

An ITV spokesperson: "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."

Sources close to the show add that it's "essential for Hamish to have this time to heal properly in the interest of safeguarding against any long-term damage".

The current series of Dancing On Ice has been plagued with problems.

First Denise was forced to pull out of the show, then Rufus Hound and Billie Shepherd were also forced to quit the series.

The number of drop-outs has become so bad that even Phillip Schofield joked to co-host Holly Willoughby that they could soon have to take to the ice as they kicked off Sunday's episode.

Even just hours before last Sunday's show, ITV confirmed that Jason Donovan would not be competing on the episode after suffering back pain.

On Monday, ITV bosses took the tough decision to pull the next episode of the show.

An ITV spokesperson said: "Each week our production team and cast have delivered a fantastic show during incredibly challenging times.

"The welfare of all of those involved is important to us and we felt it prudent to take a week's break at this juncture.

"Continuing to make the best TV for our viewers is of paramount importance to us and we look forward to resuming the competition next week, with the show back live on Sunday 28th February."
