Kimberley Walsh's boyfriend is reportedly jealous of Strictly Come Dancing's Pasha Kovalev getting to spend so much time with his girl!

Kimberley has been dating her former popstar boyfriend Justin Scott for nine years, but it seems he's feeling a bit insecure when compared to Kimberley's dancing partner Pasha.

Girls Aloud star Kimberley was partnered with the Russian dancer on Saturday night, and the pair kicked off training earlier this week.

But a supposed insider tells the latest issue of Reveal magazine: "Justin hates the idea of another man with his hands all over Kimberley every day.

"He's suddenly come over all protective wand wants to be there at rehearsals 'to make sure she's OK'. It's only natural that he's a bit jealous."

Strictly judge Darcey Bussell previously predicted passion on the dancefloor between Kimberley and Pasha.

Speaking about how the celebrities had been paired with the dancers, new judge Darcey said: “Well I mean now they’ve been matched up, I don’t think there’ll be any personalities that will be clashing. At all.”

Chatting to host Tess Daly on the premiere show, Darcey added: “One of those dance couples I can’t wait to see on the floor is Kimberly and Pasha. I think he’ll be giving her a lot of passion on that dancefloor. Exciting!”

Meanwhile the source claimed that Strictly could put pressure on Kimberley's relationship.

"There's a real feeling that the Strictly experience could make or break their relationship," the insider says. "Kimberley's in her 30s now and she's not messing about anymore.

"This is a massive opportunity for her and it could drive a wedge between her and Justin if he does not play his cards right."
