Strictly Come Dancing: Natalie Gumede's closeness with Artem Chigvintsev making Kara Tointon jealous

Strictly Come Dancing

Another Strictly Come Dancing romance looks to be in trouble, as it's claimed Natalie Gumede's closeness with Artem Chigvintsev making Kara Tointon jealous.

Kara and Artem got together after being partnered on the BBC One series back in 2010, which Kara won.

And while the pair are still living together, the Daily Mirror claims that the couple are "living largely separate lives".

“Things have been a bit rocky between them now for a good few months but they have tried to work through their problems," a source told the newspaper today. “Neither wanted to throw in the towel but Artem’s confided in pals that they actually called time on their romance a few months ago. They simply drifted apart.

“They remain great friends and Artem is still living at Kara’s. And, to the outside word, they are putting on a front, insisting all is well at least until Strictly finishes.”

The tabloid suggests that Kara has become "envious" Artem’s friendship with new pro partner Natalie Gumede.

But Natalie insisted: “I wouldn’t like to comment on that, that’s not for me to say... I’m just here to dance.”

A spokesman for Strictly declined to comment on the reports.
