Dancing On Ice stars Samia Ghadie and Sylvain Longchambon have finally admitted that they are in a relationship - but insisted that the French skater was not unfaithful.
Samia, 30, who shot to fame on Coronation Street, told OK! magazine that she had introduced Sylvain, 32, to her young daughter because she is sure that the couple have a future together.
The pair said that Sylvain ended his relationship with Hollyoaks actress Jennifer Metcalfe before they got together, with Samia telling the magazine: "If Sylvain had tried anything on with me when he was with his ex, I wouldn't be with him now. I wouldn't be able to trust him."
She added: "People thought we had been having an affair behind her back, that I had stolen her man, and it absolutely wasn't true."
Sylvain said that he told Jennifer that he was "really enjoying going to work and Samia's company a bit too much" before ending it with her.
The couple, who have been photographed in each other's arms in the magazine, said that they were considering moving in together and that "it is love".
Samia, who has been eliminated from Dancing On Ice, split from her boyfriend, actor Will Thorp, before starring in the ice contest, and divorced husband Matthew Smith, the father of her daughter, in 2011.
