'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant Tina O'Brien has split from her cameraman boyfriend, amid reports she has been ''flirting'' with rugby hunk Gavin Henson backstage
Tina O'Brien has split from her new boyfriend amid reports she is becoming close to Gavin Henson.
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' beauty has reportedly called time on her romance with cameraman Nick Cox - who she met on the set of 'Waterloo Road' earlier this year - and insiders believe this could be to do with her constant "flirting" with the hunky rugby player backstage on the ballroom dance show.
A source explained: "Tina still has affection for Nick but it's over. They weren't dating for that long so it's not getting her down.
"Tina and Gavin been flirting like mad behind the scenes and everyone thinks they'd make a great couple."
Nick was the 27-year-old actress' first serious boyfriend following her split from her former 'Coronation Street' co-star Ryan Thomas - with whom she has a two-year-old daughter Scarlett - last year.
Gavin is also newly single, having separated from his long-term partner Charlotte Church - who he has a three-year-old daughter Ruby, and nine-month-old son Dexter with - earlier this year.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "It's no secret that Gavin is gagging for it - he's a red-blooded male after all. Tina is hot so it's no surprise he's interested."
