Sam Attwater was last night forced to apologise to telly bosses for pretending to date skating partner Brianne Delcourt. TellyMix yesterday reported how the pair were alleged to have faked their romance when pictures emerged for Sam kissing another of the show's professional skaters, Alexandra Schauman - married fellow show skater Lucasz Rozycki!
The revelations forced ITV to cut a segment of last night's show which showed the pair enjoying a pre-valentine’s day date. Today, Sam admitted the pair had starting to see one another, however continued to pretend they were together after they had broken up. He told The Sun: "We were together. We're not now."
Meanwhile, in scenes reminiscent from a soap like Coronation Street, professional skater Lucasz is said to be furious with Sam for kissing his wife. A show source told the newspaper: "He had a face like thunder. He was in a foul mood."
Despite the drama, Sam still delivered a confident performance last night to equal his best score of the series so far with 25.5 points out of 30. Dancing On Ice presenter Phillip Schofield joked: "That routine was nearly as complicated as your love life!"
