Brianne Delcourt, 39, is one of Dancing on Ice’s longest serving professionals, having first joined the show in 2010. Since then, she has won the title once with former EastEnders actor Sam Attwater, 34, and recently found love on the programme by getting engaged to her 2020 partner, Kevin, 43. With the pair having moved to Canada earlier this year and looking towards the future, the skater has now decided to hang up her skates and step down from her duties on the ITV reality contest.
Speaking with HELLO! Magazine, Brianne said: “It has been a back-and-forth question mark in my mind for some time now.
“I’m 39 – 40 in February – and I’ve been on the road for so long and as a working mum – a single mum. I really had to work hard for everything on my own.”
Of the conversation she had with producers, the professional explained: “It was quite emotional and they knew I had to do what was right for me.
“They’ve been super supportive of my decision.”
