Dancing On Ice 2013: Samia Ghadie loves "brilliant" Sylvain Longchambon

Samia Ghadie (Dancing On Ice 2013)

Despite their rows, Samia Ghadie has been gushing about her pro Dancing On Ice 2013 skating partner Sylvain Longchambon.

The pair are rumoured to be dating, although Samia has insisted recently that she's still very much single.

Speaking about the French skater this week, Samia gushed: "he's is brilliant. He’s so patient and thoughtful, I’m lucky. It is weird going from Charlie (Condou’s) arms in Corrie to Sylvain’s."

In an interview with the Sunday People magazine, the Coronation Street actress explained: "I feel safer in Sylvain’s – I don’t think Charlie would mind me saying that."

And perhaps tellingly, Samia admitted: "I can see how you’d end up in a relationship with your partner. You get to know each other intensely and there’s a lot of trust.

"There’s a lot of physical contact in training too, but Sylvain’s not grabbing me in any places that are… too intimate. There are couples doing lifts like that and we’ve had a few giggles about it. I’m not mentioning any names, you’ll have to watch the show to see who I’m talking about..."

Meanwhile Samia revealed she's been asking the wardrobe department to cover up some of the more revealing outfits!

She said: "I’ve asked them to put extra padding in the bras of all my costumes. I’m not trying to be the show’s sex symbol. Pamela Anderson might have the edge on me in that department. That’s why I’ve asked for the extra padding. But I’m mainly thinking about staying upright."
