The skater didn't mean to cause drama by breaking up with Jennifer

Sylvain Longchambon has spoken out about his split from Hollyoaks actress Jennifer Metcalfe for the first time.

The ice skater broke up with Jennifer, 29, on Christmas Day amid rumours that he’d become close to his Dancing On Ice partner Samia Ghadie – but he maintains he did the right thing.

‘I’ve done nothing wrong, I’ve been honest. We’ve only had Jennifer‘s point of view, that’s her point of views,’ says Sylvain, 32.

‘I haven’t been in touch with Jennifer, I’m not thinking about that at the moment, I’m just focusing on my work and the skating.’

Sylvain and Samia, 30, have denied that they’re in a relationship but were spotted leaving the National Television Awards together on Wednesday night.

Coronation Street star Samia met Sylvain‘s parents backstage at DOI last week.

‘My parents came to see the show, they liked it,’ Sylvain tells Metro.

‘They talked briefly, just “hi”, that’s it.’
