Dancing On Ice Samia And Sylvain: We're In Love
But skating duo insist they didn’t cheat on their partners…
Coronation Street actress Samia revealed that she had received considerable backlash over the split, with some of Jen’s friends contacting her on Twitter.
She said: “A few of Jen’s friends targeted me on Twitter and sent the most vile tweets you can ever imagine.
“I knew I hadn’t done anything wrong. People thought we had been having an affair behind her back that I had stolen her man, and it absolutely wasn’t true.
“I would never set out to steal anybody’s man. I would never go out with somebody if they had a girlfriend.”
And although single, Samia revealed that she hadn’t been looking for love since the break-up of her marriage to Will Thorpe.
She explained: “I was happy thinking I was going to be on my own with [my daughter] Freya. I had split up with Will a good few weeks before Sylvain split up with Jen.”
Now that the pair have told the world about their relationship, they are busy planning a future together.
“There is no way that I would have let Freya meet Sylvain if I wasn’t sure he was the one I want to be with or that we have a future together,” she said.
