Hannah Spearritt has reportedly opted not to return for the 'Dancing On Ice' final.

The former S Club 7 singer was "heartbroken" after she left the show in week two when she and professional partner Andy Buchanan were automatically eliminated following a one-week-only rule change in which the couple with the lowest number of votes were axed without taking part in the skate-off and she's now not expected to join her fellow 2024 contestants for a final turn on the ice on Sunday's (10.03.24) programme.

A source told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre TV column: "Show bosses would have loved Hannah to be a part of Sunday's final and skate alongside her fellow cast members of 2024 but as yet, they have not received confirmation from Hannah or her reps that she will be taking part in the show."

After she was eliminated following a 'Frozen'-themed skate to 'Let It Go' during the show's movie week, host Holly Willoughby told Hannah: "I'm so sorry, I don't think any of us wanted to let you go at this point."

She replied:"It's sad to see anyone go."

But Hannah admitted she was pleased to have danced as Elsa from 'Frozen' for her final performance because her two daughters were in the audience.

As the camera cut to her family, she said: "It was nice to finish on Elsa.

"I've enjoyed it, everyone has been fantastic and to be partnered with Andy it was a joy, thank you for the journey."

When she signed up for the show, the 'Primeval' star explained she was keen to push herself out of her comfort zone and improve her fitness.

She said: "I’m really excited about learning a new skill.

"It’s so easy to live your comfortable life and that aspect of mixing things up is very appealing.

"Fitness is another reason why I’m doing it! It’s really exciting."
