No one believed the denials and now Dancing On Ice coaches Torvill & Dean have confessed they did hook up in the past.
The British skating legends have always denied having any relationship, despite their closeness both on and off the ice.
However in an interview for the new series of Piers Morgan's Life Stories, due to air in the Spring, the pair finally confessed they get did once get together.
Although Chris' girlfriend and fellow DOI star Karen Barber will no doubt be pleased to know that it was a long time ago and didn't last.
Piers wrote on Twitter during filming of the interview this week: "BREAKING NEWS 'Yes, we dabbled...' - @torvillanddean finally admit to a romantic past together, albeit a very short one... #LifeStories."
Torvill and Dean will be back on the ice this Sunday night for the latest Dancing On Ice live show, which will see the remaining skaters go head to head in a team challenge.
