Kara Tointon has moved in with her boyfriend, 'Strictly Come Dancing' hunk Artem Chigvintsev, but the pair do not plan to marry and are ''happy being happy''
'Strictly Come Dancing' champion Kara Tointon has moved in with boyfriend Artem Chigvintsev.
The former 'EastEnders' actress - who met the Russian dancer while competing on the BBC reality show -loves "feeling settled" with Artem but has no plans to rush into marriage.
Kara said: "I dream of getting married one day, but at the moment we're just happy being happy.
"I'm just enjoying having that nice settled feeling. Don't get me wrong, I would love to. But my parents never married and are still together. I would rather have a nice life together than worry about a silly date."
Despite their love for each other, Kara believes they are completely opposite, even down to the possibility of getting a new pet.
She added in an interview with Britain's Hello! magazine: "We are the opposite of each other. Artem is calm and chilled out. He's very organised and everything is very particular. I dream of being neat.
"I've got my dog Winston who is used to being an only child. But Artem wants a cat. My dream was to get him a kitten, put a bow round his neck and give it to him as a present. But Artem wants a savannah cat, which you need a licence for, so it's not so simple."
