Strictly Come Dancing star Kara likes Artem's Russian accent

Kara Tointon loves working with Strictly Come Dancing partner Artem Chigvintsev – because he’s super-sexy.

The former EastEnders star says the Russian-born professional blows her away with his moves on the ballroom floor.

‘On the first show, he did this glide over to me and it left me a bit flustered,’ explains Kara, 27.

‘He’s gorgeous in every way and his accent is pretty nice. I couldn’t really have asked for more.’ 

Kara admits that she’s developed feelings for Artem, 28.

‘We’ve only known each other for a month, so it’s early days yet, but we are getting on very well,’ she tells Look.

‘It’s quite a tease to end up with him, isn’t it? But we are having a nice time, that’s all I’ll say.’

Kara split from actor Joe Swash 4 months ago after 2 years of dating.
