Jennifer Metcalfe will watch her 'Dancing on Ice' ex skate with his rumoured new lover on Sunday night's (06.01.13) launch show.
The 'Hollyoaks' actress was left devastated when her boyfriend of two years Sylvain Longchambon ended their relationship by phone after he had "developed feelings" for 'Coronation Street' actress Samia Ghadie.
But Jennifer - who competed with Sylvain in the 2011 series - has tickets for the ITV1 show and friends say she is set to turn up despite their break-up.
A friend told The Sun newspaper: "Jen was always planning to go along as she has tickets as Sylvain's partner and wanted to cheer him along and give him support.
"Now that's changed she texted him and said she might come anyway. Can you imagine how uncomfortable Samia would feel if she kept seeing Jen in the audience?"
Samia - who plays Maria Connor in the ITV1 soap - also dumped her boyfriend, Will Thorp, after falling for Sylvain but she has faced abuse from the show's fans so has been hiding out at her mum's.
A source said: "She is fearful of the abuse and the reaction she will face when the show starts this Sunday. She wanted to hide out with her mum."
