Caprice signed up to take part in the TV show which, similar to Strictly Come Dancing, has broken couples apart. Amid concerns his wife may get close to her skating partner, Caprice’s husband Ty Comfort admitted he was unsure about her signing up for the show.
The former model will be skating alongside Hamish Gaman in this year’s edition of the show.
Speaking to OK! Magazine, 48-year-old Caprice revealed her husband’s worries about the ‘curse’ the show can have on relationships.
She said: “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.”

Several celebrities have in the past become romantically involved with their skating partners.
Samia and Sylvain Longchambon fell in love when paired together, despite him dating Hollyoaks actress Jennifer Metcalfe at the time.
Matt Lapinskas was in a relationship with his Eastenders co-star Shona McGarty before he fell for skating partner Brianne Delcourt.
Similar instances have occurred on Strictly Come Dancing with the likes of Seann Walsh, Louise Redknapp and Stacey Dooley being affected by the ‘curse’.
However, Caprice says she has reassured her millionaire financier husband that he has no cause for concern whatsoever.
Caprice said: “It feels great being married. I love introducing Ty now as my husband, instead of ‘my hot boyfriend’.
“It’s funny because when I was younger, I would always say I didn’t need a piece of paper to validate my relationship.
“But as I got older, I became less opposed to it.
“It was never top of our priority list, and Ty was even less bothered than me, but I knew I was going to spend the rest of my life with him, so we just thought we’d formalise it. Ty is just perfect for me.”
