Strictly couple Kara Tointon and Artem Chigvintsev 'at breaking point'

Kara Tointon

It looks like it’s all over for Strictly Come Dancing Kara Tointon and Artem Chigvintsev, with the pair now living apart after a series of rows. The couple got together after being partnered up on last year's series, which Kara won, but with Artem this year dancing with sexy pop babe Holly Valance, bitter arguments have driven them apart.

A friend told The sun today: "They've been having a terrible time together and decided they needed some space.

"Artem left their new home and skulked off to Robin's. The stress of the show has been getting to Artem as it's a tough gig with numerous rehearsals that fill up his day.

"They're a very passionate couple so when things flare up, they tend to flare up in a big way. Everyone is worried that the relationship is now doomed."

A spokeswoman for Kara however insisted: "They are very much together."
