Kara Tointon says she and new boyfriend Artem Chigvintsev are a great fit
‘From early on, he felt like part of the family,’ says ex-EastEnders actress Kara, 27.
‘He just fitted in.
‘It has been my dream to meet someone that my family would love as much as I did.’
Kara and Artem fought their sexual attraction throughout Strictly‘s 12 weeks of live shows, but finally sealed the deal with a kiss on the night they lifted the winners’ trophy.
The pair’s relationship has gone from strength to strength since that night in December and Russian hunk Artem, 28, spent Christmas with the Tointons.
‘To feel part of the family so quick…I’ve never had that experience,’ he tells Hello!
‘They were so nice.’
