Dancing On Ice star Colin Grafton issues update to concerned fans after being left ‘homeless’ amid series

'Please help'

| Updated:

Dancing On Ice 2024 star Colin Grafton has issued a plea online as he asked for help after being told to leave his Airbnb.

The ice skater appeared on the latest series of the ITV show, partnered with Claire Sweeney. Sadly, the pair were booted from the competition and became the third couple to be voted out of the series.

But on Tuesday (February 27) he took to social media to ask for help – as he had been forced to leave his rental over a “safety concern”.

Taking to his X, formerly known as Twitter, account, Dancing On Ice star Colin wrote: “Hello @Airbnb_uk. I sincerely need your help. I have been asked to vacate my current airbnb rental on a ‘safety concern’, but am not getting any help on what to do next.”

He added: “I am currently in the midst of #DancingOnIce and now have nowhere to stay. Please help.”

Responding to his post, the Airbnb support account, said: “Hi Colin, we would like to take a closer look. Please DM us your email address associated with your Airbnb account together with the details of your concern. We’ll be here to support you further.”

Taking to Twitter last night, Colin updated fans, revealing that he’s no longer “homeless”.

Update: No longer “homeless”. Thank you @Airbnb_uk for sorting me out in the end,” he wrote as he shared a video of where he was staying.

“Very nice indeed. Pleased they sorted you out. Enjoy and keep it as neat n tidy or else,” one fan tweeted in reply.

“So pleased they sorted everything out for you. Looks nice,” another said. “Glad to hear everything is all sorted for you,” a third wrote.

Colin on Dancing On Ice

The dancer was back on the skates for this year’s series. But just hours before the first live show in January, he was dealt a devastating blow.

Colin’s father suffered a stroke. This left his son wanting to “get on a flight right away” to be at his side. Sadly for Colin, his father, Roy, lives in Boston, US, meaning he couldn’t be at his side.

“At first, Colin wanted to get on a flight right away and be there for his family. But he knew his dad would want him to do the show, and Claire [Sweeney] has [been] incredibly supportive to him – she has been his rock,” a source told The Sun.
