Dancing on Ice star has moved on from Gerard

Dancing On Ice star Zoe Salmon has a new boyfriend, it can be revealed. According to sources, the former Blue Peter star is now dating London-based Capital FM radio star Greg Burns.

Greg, the Drivetime host with the leading London station, met Zoe at the Capital Rocks event in December last year when they were introduced by the blonde beauty's dance partner Matt Evers.

Although the pair have yet to be pictured together, she was spotted cosying up to Greg recently at the aftershow party for the Dancing On Ice Live Tour in Sheffield.

Earlier this year Zoe confirmed that she was dating Belfast-born Hollyoaks star Gerard McCarthy.

She said: “There are a lot of celebs who are famous for being with another celeb.

“We're both independent and I want to be known for my career.

“We're two separate people who have two separate careers and our jobs are very different.”

But when Gerard was pictured with dancer Jeanette Taylor at the recent Fate Awards in Belfast, he exclusively told Sunday Life: “It's no secret that Zoe and I are not together anymore and as I didn't talk about our relationship when we were together, I'm not about to start now.

“I suppose it's just one of those things, but there's plenty more salmon in the sea.”

Meanwhile Zoe's agent confirmed recently that the couple had split and she was single.

However, Zoe told OK! magazine: “I am dating, but it's very early days. I'm really happy, but because it's still so new and because he's also in the industry, I don't want to go into too much detail.”

She also revealed just what she was looking for in a boyfriend.

“I am a real romantic. I've been lucky because I've had quite a lot of romantic moments in my life,” she said.

“I don't run around saying I'm romantic. I just end up dating guys who are romantic.

“I once said I wished you could eat Cadbury's Creme Eggs all year round. The guy I was dating gave me 365 — one for every day of the year. I ate them in two weeks!

“My boyfriends have always been people I've been friends with and then it has just developed. It's nice because you're already happy and comfortable, and then you become boyfriend and girlfriend.”
