Jennifer Metcalfe has been left "devastated" after splitting from Sylvain Longchambon.
The 'Hollyoaks' actress was told by her former 'Dancing on Ice' partner that their two-year romance was over on Friday (28.12.12) amid claims he has "developed feelings" for his new skating partner, 'Coronation Street' actress Samia Ghadie.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Jennifer is absolutely gutted. She just did not see this coming. She is in bits. She feels she has been kicked in the teeth and is devastated.
"The pain is very real at the moment but Jennifer is gorgeous, talented and a lovely person so it is his loss in the end -- not hers.
"But it's going to be tough to see Samia and Sylvain skating together."
Samia - who split from her boyfriend Will Thorp earlier this month - and Sylvain have been training for the new series of the celebrity reality contest for just a few months, making Jennifer more shocked over the demise of her relationship.
The source said: "They have been training together since October so it is pretty quick for people to start having strong feelings for each other."
However, friends of Sylvain and Samia insisted they are not in a relationship - but admitted they "wouldn't be surprised" if anything romantic happened between them.
A pal told The Sun newspaper: "Samia is adamant she has done nothing wrong, but she admits she's close to Sylvain and that he has been a rock to her since her relationship broke down with Will.
"They clearly have chemistry and they are both single. If they want to get together, then why not? No one can say what will happen in the future, but they aren't an item yet."
