There's rumours going around about just how close Caroline Flack has got to her pro partner Pasha Kovalev on the latest series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The pair won the glitterball trophy in last month's final but are now being plagued by reports that their relationship has left Pasha's girlfriend - his previous Strictly celeb partner, Rachel Riley - concerned.

The news follows Caroline's split from her long-term boyfriend mid-way through the Strictly live shows late last year.

Pasha and Rachel meanwhile announced their relationship following 2013's series after Rachel had split from her husband.

A supposed pal of the Countdown star said this week: "While Rachel completely trusts Pasha, it's a difficult thing to watch your partner spending so much time so close to someone else - especially when they are so flirtatious."

They added to new! magazine: "It's tough to watch from the sidelines."

The good news for Rachel is that while Caroline is heading out on the show's tour, Pasha is not.

Instead, new Strictly pro Tristan MacManus will partner with the Xtra Factor host for the live arena shows this Spring.

Caroline said: "I hope that those who have been so lovely and supported me each week will come along to see the show. Dancing for people who took time to vote for me will be an honour.”

In other recent Strictly romance news, it was reported last week that Blue singer Simon Webbe and his pro partner Kristina Rihanoff have got together.

The two singletons have yet to go public with their rumoured relationship however, with sources claiming that they wanted to see how things progressed now that the show is over.
