Dancing On Ice 2013: Matt Lapinskas' ex girlfriend says Brianne Delcort not to blame for break up

Matt Lapinskas (Dancing On Ice 2013)

The ex-girlfriend of Dancing On Ice 2013 star Matt Lapinskas has insisted the pair didn't split over Brianne Delcourt.

It was reported yesterday that Matt was ditched by girlfriend Shona McGarty over his closeness to pro partner Brianne on the show.

It followed similar splits between Beth Tweddle and Samia Ghadie, with some sources claiming that the show is a curse for loved up couples.

A supposed pal told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: “It was Shona’s decision to end it, they’ve been arguing for weeks.

“She’s been feeling fed-up for a while and decided enough was enough. It wasn’t working and they were not making each other happy. It’s all amicable."

However while Shona admitted that the pair have gone their separate ways, she said it was nothing to do with Brianne.

The soap star tweeted yesterday: "The headlines are NOT true!! As if I’d let @BrianneTV do that!! X mwah! Much love!! 😉 ."

She added: "Thanx 4 support guys! Yes its true Matt and I have split but it has NOTHING 2 do with Brianne. Clear head and new beginnings! Mwah xx"

Meanwhile, Brianne spent yesterday gushing over Matt, not exactly helping stop the rumours.

She tweeted: "Matt and I have become best friends…end of!!!!

“He’s been my little angel throughout some tough times!”

Next weekend’s final live show will see the remaining three skaters – Matt, Luke Campbell and Beth Tweddle – compete for the win!
