Since Dancing On Ice's Samia Ghadie conveniently split up with her partner Will Thorp while her skating co-star Sylvain Longchambon ended things with Hollyoaks' Jennifer Metcalfe, we reckon each and every one of this year's DOI contestants have at some point come home to their partner, drunk and alone in the kitchen, illuminated by a single candle, going: "SO. DO YOU LOVE THEM?"
And former Eastenders star Matt Lapinskas is no different. As The Mirror reports, he and fellow Albert Square actor Shona McGarty (who plays Whitney) had to have a very serious talk about how he is not supposed to do anything silly like start up an affair with dance partner Brianne Delcourt.

"Shona got jealous so I made them meet each other and they’re getting on well now," Matt said. But then he also admitted to some slips in training that are sure to see him getting another talking to from Shona when she reads them. "I’ve grabbed boob when I’ve been slipping over trying to hold on to something.” That's what they all say, Matt. That's what they all say.
Brianne is no stranger to the concept of Romancing On Ice, though, seeing as she met former partner Danny Young through the show, while recently dumped Jennifer Metcalfe also met her ex while dancing up against him in a barely-there stage outfit. Is tomorrow night just going to be some sort of relentless, Lycra-clad horn-fest? You're going to have to tune in to find out.
