Jennifer Metcalfe and Sylvain Longchambon cuddle-up off screen

Jennifer Metcalfe appears to have found love with her Dancing On Ice pro skater partner Sylvain Longchambon.

Rumours of a romance started following their kiss on the rink at the end of their first ever dance routine, and now the pair have been spotted grabbing a bite to eat together at McDonald‘s in Bradford.

‘They looked really comfortable with each other,’ says a source.

‘They were having a real laugh together, at one point pulling funny faces through the restaurant window.

‘It was romantic.’

After dinner Jennifer, 27, who plays Mercedes McQueen in Hollyoaks, walked hand in hand with Sylvain, suggesting their kiss on the ice rink wasn’t just for public votes.

‘They gave each other a really long, lingering kiss outside,’ the source tells the Mirror. ‘They weren’t trying to hid the fact they were together.’
