ITV confirmed Hamish's departure from the series on Tuesday as they said he would no longer be able to take part after snapping a tendon in his finger.
Hamish sustained the injury whilst putting on a sock – joking about the embarrassing ordeal during an episode of DOI.
He was initially signed off by the medical team as safe to continue skating but had to change some of his and Faye's routine.
However, after a follow-up examination this week, medical experts have concluded Hamish cannot continue.
An ITV spokesperson: "Sadly we can confirm that Hamish Gaman, who has been partnered with Faye Brookes, has had to withdraw from the competition.
"We thank him for all his hard work and wish him the very best as he takes some time out to allow his injury to fully heal."
Dancing On Ice airs Sundays at 6pm on ITV.
