Dancing On Ice couple confirm they're dating

Samia Ghadie has revealed that supporters of Sylvain Longchambon‘s ex Jennifer Metcalfe sent her abuse on Twitter.

The Coronation Street actress recently confirmed that she’s dating French skater Sylvain but was hurt by suggestions they got together whilst he was still seeing Hollyoaks star Jen, 29.

The first story appeared in the press on the day of the first Dancing On Ice show and I was just in pieces,’ says Samia, 30.

It was horrible.

‘[I was] sent the most vile Tweets you can imagine. It’s not nice.

I knew that I hadn’t done anything wrong, I hadn’t tried it on with Sylvain. People thought we had been having an affair behind her back, that I had stolen her man, and it absolutely wasn’t true.

What should Sylvain have done? Should he have stayed with Jennifer even if he wasn’t happy?’

Mum-of-one Samia insists the relationship only began after the negative stories caused her to get closer to Sylvain, 32.
