Strictly Come Dancing star says they will remain dance partners

Vincent Simone admits he will always have feelings for his ex Flavia Cacace.

The professional dancers split during the last series of Strictly Come Dancing.

And Flavia, 28, then began seeing her celebrity dance partner, former EastEnders actor Matt Di Angelo, 21.

‘I will always love her and be there for her,’ he says. ‘I’ll be her best friend forever.’

And Vincent, 29, who has a new girlfriend, insists he and Flavia will carry on dancing together.

‘For so long Flavia and I were undecided about whether we should carry on dancing,’ he tells Weekend magazine.

‘I think, in our hearts, that we both wanted to, but she was crying so much, and so was I.

‘Then we both realised, at the same time, that we had too much together to throw it away.

‘Now our dancing is even better because we have so many emotions between us.’

Flavia, who dated Vincent for 11 years, has since split with Matt.
