Dancing On Ice winner Sam Attwater says Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan were great

Dancing On Ice winner Sam Attwater has only been dating new girlfriend Chloe Madeley for a matter of weeks, but he’s already had a grilling from her famous parents.

Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan met the former EastEnders actor for the first time at their home recently.

‘Her parents were great,’ says Sam, 24.

But he’s unsure whether they approved of him, adding: ‘I don’t know, you’d have to ask them.’

Chloe, 23, split from ex-boyfriend Glenn Crickmar shortly before she stepped out with Sam earlier this month.

The pair grew close while taking part on DOI and have been spending all their time together while on the show’s official tour.

Richard and Judy were keen to meet Sam,’ a source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘They take an avid interest in Chloe‘s life and they wanted to get to know the new man in her life.

‘They invited him to their home for coffee. Sam was nervous but they made him feel at ease, chatting on their sofas.

‘It was like he was a guest on their chat show, the way they grilled him.’
