Dancing On Ice 2013 judge Jason Gardiner has suggested that Samia Ghadie's rumoured relationship with her skating partner could cost her the show.
The Corrie actress has been linked to her skating pro Sylvain Longchambon after both of them dumped their partners after they started training together.
But Samia insisted at last week's press launch: “I’m single and I’m just having fun skating.”
She added: “It’s such a dangerous sport anyway that I can’t afford to be focusing on anything other than just being a good ice skater and good mum.”
Jason however admitted that the show was "notorious" for romance, and it leading to some dreadful routines!
He said: "If you go back to Jennifer and Sylvain where it all started, they were an item during the show and they had no chemistry at all.
'This show is notorious for all that, the shenanigans over the years – I can’t keep up."
He explained: “Inevitably when you are training day in, day out, you’re very vulnerable with your pro and that person really props you up.
“I guess if you’re not getting that kind of attention from somebody else at home then it can blur lines.”
Also speaking at yesterday's show launch, Jason added: “I don’t care if Samia shags everybody, it’s how she is on the ice every week.”
