Jennifer Metcalfe has fallen for her 'Dancing On Ice' partner Sylvain Longchambon.
The 'Hollyoaks' actress - who plays loud-mouthed Mercedes Fisher in the Channel 4 soap - is already said to be planning a secret romantic break with the athletic hunk, after being brought together by the ITV1 show.
Show mentors Torvill and Dean were reportedly left "speechless" as they watched the pair's chemistry sizzle on the ice.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Jennifer and Sylvain's performances set the ice on fire, the chemistry between them is incredible. When Torvill and Dean saw them they were left speechless."
With rehearsals for the show having stopped for the festive break, Jennifer and French-born Sylvain are hoping to secretly meet in Paris tomorrow (22.12.10).
Shortly after the handsome skater had returned to France for the holidays, the brunette beauty sent a message to a friend on twitter saying she was "missing a certain sumone (sic)".
The duo are now being labelled the new "Kara and Artem" in reference to 'EastEnders' actress Kara Tointon and her dance partner Artem Chigvintsev winning 'Strictly Come Dancing' after falling for each other during rehearsals.
'Dancing On Ice' insiders believe Jennifer and Sylvian are likely to be favourites to win when the show when it starts on January 9.
