Professional couple make the admission to Piers Morgan

Dancing On Ice’s Christopher Dean and Jayne Torvill have been at the centre of speculation that they’d been romantically involved for years.

Now they’ve finally confirmed on Piers Morgan‘s Life Stories what we all expected – they had a brief fling once.

‘BREAKING NEWS “Yes, we dabbled…” @torvillanddean finally admit to a romantic past together, albeit a very short one,’ Piers Tweeted last night.

Torvill and Dean won gold for their Bolero at the 1984 Winter Olympics, and joined Dancing On Ice in 2006.

Jayne, 55, is happily married to Phil Christensen and Chris, 54, is dating Karen Barber, a judge on the show.
