Matt Lapinskas' 'Dancing on Ice' skating partner admits it was "uncomfortable" when she first met his girlfriend Shona McGarty.
Professional skater Brianne Delcourt can understand why the 'EastEnders' actress was unhappy watching her boyfriend prepare for the ITV skating show with her, but she says there are no problems now.
Brianne said: "It must be hard - this is a profession I've done my whole working life so touching my body in certain places is just a job for me, but she has to sit there and watch her boyfriend of two years do that.
"Early doors maybe it was a bit uncomfortable, but we all get along. She's a nervous wreck, she almost can't bear to watch him."
Despite the early meeting, Matt insists Shona is not "the jealous type" and she has been very supportive of his stint on the show.
He added to OK! magazine: "She's not the jealous type. She's been amazing, she wants to come to every show, and she's always texting me wishing me good luck."
