Loved-up couple plan to settle down together in the UK

Strictly Come Dancing winner Kara Tointon has asked dance partner and boyfriend Artem Chigvintsev to move in with her.

The ex-EastEnders star, 27, will share her London flat with the Russian hunk after next month’s show tour is finished.

Artem and I are enjoying ourselves doing things like going out for dinner and resting – if you know what I mean…after the tour we are looking to move in together,’ Kara reveals.

‘It’s really exciting. He wants to stay on in the UK.’

The loved-up couple recently took a trip to the US and Artem, 28, lavished the actress with gifts.

‘He took me to Beverly Hills shops like Richard Gere did for Julia Roberts in the Pretty Woman film,’ Kara tells The People. ‘I loved it.’
