More Dancing On Ice chaos as Matt Evers is evacuated from hotel by fire brigade after pairing up with Faye Brookes

DANCING On Ice was plunged into more chaos as Matt Evers was evacuated from a hotel by the fire brigade as he paired up with Faye Brookes.

The pro skater, 44 – who is in Manchester to bubble with his new dance partner Faye Brookes – filmed himself after the evacuation.

Matt reassured fans he'd grabbed his skates in time when outside, but was eventually allowed back into the hotel.

Speaking from his hospital bed, the star said: "Okay, don't know what happened front desk didn't tell me anything. But thank you to Greater Manchester fire services. They were so fast."

He then showed a picture of a fireman and asked fans: "Who is this?"

The skater also shared a pic of himself outside with the fire engine's light's blaring.

He wrote: "Thank you @manchesterfire for a super fast response. Got my skates and my pj’s. That’s it. #salfordquays"

ITV confirmed Matt – who was originally paired with Denise Van Outen – will take over from Hamish Gaman as Faye's partner.

Hamish damaged a tendon in his hand while putting on a sock off ice.

A production source told The Sun Hamish quit the show following a tense meeting with producers over his latest routine with Faye.

Faye has been unhappy with her treatment at the hands of the judging panel, feeling they had been harsh.

It is thought Hamish’s hand injury made a more difficult routine impossible.

The source said: “Faye wants to win at all costs and has been concerned that the judges have been quite critical of her and Hamish.

“So, at the start of the week, as rehearsals for what would have been this Sunday’s show began, they both went in to see show bosses to express their concern over the routine.

“Faye, in particular, felt it would be too simplistic, they’d get low marks and she would be at risk of elimination.

"It can’t have helped that the routine was taking into account Hamish’s injury.

"But, after the meeting, the cogs clearly whirred into action because less than a day later Hamish was gone.”

Hamish is the fifth person forced to leave the show due to injury or illness – leaving some fans to think the show is cursed.
