Dancing On Ice 2013 pro Sylvain Longchambon has hit out at rumours claiming he's dating his celebrity partner Samia Ghadie.

Speaking at the National Television Awards at the O2 last night, Sylvain insisted he was very much singing.

And he admitted he was ignoring most of the press speculation around his personal life, claiming: “I’m just focusing on the work, focusing on the skating and what’s in the papers.

"I’m not paying attention.”

Sylvain made it clear, declaring: I’m single.”

There's been claims that the Frenchman dumped his girlfriend, his former Dancing On Ice celeb contestant Jennifer Metcalfe, before hooking up with Samia.

But Samia has also insisted she's single, and it's just a coincidence that the pair both split with their previous partners after getting close in training.

However, Sylvain confessed that both he and Samia do have chemistry together on the ice.

“I think it helps," he explained at the NTAs yesterday. “It’s always a little plus when you get on very well with your partner. I think it’s better for the routine and for the audience as well.”

Meanwhile, Sylvain reckoned that Matt Lapinskas was the one to beat, saying: "He's is really good but it could be anyone because every week we have surprises.

“I think there are a few very good skaters so we’ll see.”
