Dancing On Ice contestant Elen is fiercely protective of her daughters

It’s two years since Dancing On Ice contestant Elen Rivas split from Frank Lampard, but she’s had a tough time getting over their break-up.

Mum to Frank’s daughters Luna Coco, 5, and Isla, 3, Elen found it difficult when the Chelsea footballer started dating Christine Bleakley, 31.

‘I was heartbroken when we separated,’ Elen, 35, admits.

‘I suppose I thought maybe, just maybe, we’d get back together, so it was hard seeing him with another woman.

‘It’s sharing the little things with their father that I miss. The other day, Isla was counting and her numbers were all over the place. It was so funny I videoed it on my phone.

‘Before we separated, I’d have shown Frank. Now I’ve learnt to treasure those little things on my own.’

Elen is now reported to be seeing Peter Andre but her feeling towards Christine – who’s loved-up with the man she shared her life with for 7 years – are still very strong.

‘I don’t really know her but if she was ever unkind to the girls I’d knock her down,’ she tells the Daily Mail.

‘All I care about is my children’s happiness.’
