Actress confesses her Strictly romance is over

It’s all over for Kara Tointon and Artem Chigvintsev!

The couple were partnered together on Strictly Come Dancing three years ago and are just another couple to fall victim to the supposed “strictly curse”.

Speculation that the couple were on the rocks had been reported throughout the year, but it has just only now been confirmed by the actress herself. 

Other stars whose relationships have ended after appearing on the TV show include Rachel Riley and Susanna Reid as well as many others!

Kara also explained to The Telegraph that she and Artem have been over for a while now, but it wasn’t something she wished to announce: “We are not together. We’re fine, but we aren’t a couple any more. The reason I haven’t spoken about it is because I hate reading about myself in that way.”

The former EastEnders star has just wrapped up scenes for the new season of Mr Selfridge

Here's a reminder of the great chemistry Kara and Artem brought to our screens back in 2010 (how has it been that long?!)
