Shayne Ward's fiancée is happy he has been paired with Maria Filippov on 'Dancing on Ice' because she is married
Shayne Ward's fiancée is happy he has been paired with a married woman on 'Dancing on Ice'.
The former 'X Factor' winner's girlfriend, Faye McKeever, 27, was initially nervous as to which which female ice skater he would be paired with on the ITV reality show, but her fears were alleviated when she learned his partner, Maria Filippov, is happily married.
She told Now magazine: "I was anxious about who Shayne would be paired with before the show. But I'm so pleased Shayne was partnered with Maria. She has a son and her bloke comes over from Ireland at the weekend.
"I was really happy about that. I trust Shayne. There's been some sexy models he's had in his music videos in the past, but it's nice to know no funny business would happen."
Despite the show still being a huge hit, Faye, Shayne, the rest of the show's cast and stars were all left upset earlier this week when bosses of the ITV skating show announced its live tour will be axed.
Shayne said: "It's a shame about the tour. But it would be great to do something to celebrate the series, even if it's one show."
'Dancing on Ice' returns to ITV on Sunday (27.01.13).
