Sylvain Longchambon: I've done nothing wrong
Sylvain Longchambon says he has done "nothing wrong" in the wake of his split from Jennifer Metcalfe, despite reports he is dating his 'Dancing on Ice' co-star Samia Ghadie
Sylvain Longchambon insists has done "nothing wrong" following his split from Jennifer Metcalfe.
The professional skater has reportedly started dating his 'Dancing on Ice' partner Samia Ghadie following his break-up from the 'Hollyoaks' beauty - who said their split "felt like a death" - and insists he is concentrating on the ITV show rather than any relationships.
He said: "The press we've had was all from Jennifer's point of view. I've done nothing wrong. I've been honest from A to C."
Sylvain admits he is "quite protective" of the 'Coronation Street' star and found reports of the couple's relationship "quite upsetting" in the lead up to the start of 'Dancing on Ice' earlier this month.
He added: "A few days before the show started we were trying not to look at the newspapers every day. It was upsetting.
"She's really small, I'm quite protective of her. Samia works really hard."
On Wednesday night (23.01.13), Samia and Sylvain were spotted leaving the National Television Awards at London's The O2 together following the after party, where they were spotted flirting with each other.
A guest told The Sun newspaper: "Whenever I saw Samia, she was whispering in Sylvain's ear or giggling.
"It seemed as if she wanted the world to know.
"At the after party they were exchanging the kind of furtive glances friends do when they've taken it further but they're not sure how their pals will react.
"For most of the night Sylvain followed Samia around as she basked in the glory of Corrie's win.
"She looked like the cat that had got the cream."
