Dancing On Ice star Caprice had secret A-list career – but gave it up quickly

Caprice Bourret is back in the headlines now she's appearing in Dancing On Ice.

And her no show on last week's show was all anyone could talk about when hosts Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield revealed she had "parted ways" with pro partner Hamish Gaman.

But by Monday the mum-of-two was back on the ice and hard at work with her training.

And Caprice will now take to the rink with her new partner, Oscar Peter.

Philip Schofield confirmed Hamish would still remain a valued member of the professionals team but would not longer be teaching Caprice.

Model, mum and businesswoman Caprice hasn't let her gruelling training get in the way of her professional life.

She was up at the crack of dawn on Tuesday and on a train to a corporate event in Leeds.

Caprice wrote on Instagram: "Happy Tuesday … early call time 4.30am train to Leeds corporate speech #womeninbiz #mumpreneur #theharderyouworktheluckieryouget now back on the train to ice skating training @dancingonice @itv then #mommyduties #letsdothis."

And while she's known as a woman of many talents, with her own lingerie and bedding range as well as modelling and reality TV credits, many have forgotten about her secret A-list career.

Back in the late 1990s, Caprice tried her hand at being a pop star.

She signed a huge deal with Virgin Records, which at the time was rumoured to be for five albums.

It was a shock, even to Caprice, who admitted she had only ever sang in the shower.

Her new direction was the brainchild of her then boyfriend who told her she should give it a go.

At the time Caprice said "I swear I thought he was on drugs or something" but then took his advice as she thought "what have I got to lose".

However, Caprice released just two singles – Oh Yeah and its follow up Once Around The Sun.

Oh Yeah peaked at number 24, while Once Around The Sun also got to number 24 in the charts two years later.

It seemed it was enough to convince Caprice – and the record label bosses – that the popstar life wasn't for her.
