Watch out Samia Ghadie Sylvain also 'fancied' Heidi Range
Now she faces fresh agony, as we’ve discovered Sylvain secretly fell for another skating partner last year – while Jen thought they were happy.
Now can exclusively reveal that Sylvain was the talk of the show behind the scenes last series after gushing over Sugababes‘ Heidi Range, who he partnered for eight weeks before having to pull out through injury.
A source tells Now: ‘Everyone was talking about it – it was very obvious.
‘He always wanted to spend time with Heidi away from the rink and kept texting her.
‘It was clear he fancied her. At the time Heidi was still getting over Dave, so nothing happened.
‘All the same, Jen will be devastated.’
Our revelation comes after it emerged Sylvain phoned Jen from France over Christmas to end their two-year relationship.
He said he’d ‘developed feelings’ for Corrie star Samia, 30, since they’d started training for the show.
It came as a huge shock to Jen – who met Sylvain when he partnered her on DOI in 2011 – and she told him to move out their flat.
She insists she’s still single.
