Dancing On Ice 2013 host Phillip Schofield reckons Samia Ghadie's rumoured relationship with her skating partner Sylvain Longchambon could help her win the show.

Corrie actress Samia is reported to have hooked with her hunky French pro partner Sylvain last month.

She admitted this week: "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..."

DOI host Phil thinks that the pair's relationship could them win.

He said: “If they are close, or very close, or extremely close, then it won’t do them any harm at all.

“If she and her partner are getting on, then it does tend to help. Samia could win.

“If you think about it, it’s such a contact sport. Week after week they are incredibly close together."

Speaking to The Sun today Phil went on: “It is a bit like Strictly as well. There are romances within their crowd, too, as you rely utterly on your pro.
“It is something new for the star, but pros know what they are doing.

“Of course you are going to throw yourself into it and your pro teachers are going to save you and pick you up when you are down.

“It is a hotbed of romance. There is a possibility of a romance between all of them. I don’t know what it is with ice, sequins and fake tan but they are rampant.”
