Dancing On Ice pro Carlotta and husband Alexander announce separation after he is linked to Maura Higgins – The Sun
DANCING On Ice pros Carlotta Edwards and Alexander Demetriou have announced their separation after he was linked to Irish beauty Maura Higgins on the ITV show.
Carlotta's husband Alexander shared a statement on Instagram today that confirmed the news after The Sun revealed the rift in their marriage.
Carlotta and Alex's marriage has now ended after he grew close to Love Island stunner Maura, 29, his partner for the last series.
Writing on Instagram today, he said: "I'm Sorry I have been quiet on social media recently but it's been a tough time for me personally.
"Carlotta and I have finally separated."
The 28-year-old added: "Although it saddens me that we can no longer be together, I feel this is best for both of us. I'm looking forward to what the future will bring but in the meantime let's all say home and stay safe."
The two pro dancers, married for four years, had spent Christmas with Carlotta’s parents Nancy and Peter in Canada a few weeks before he started dancing with Maura on the ITV show.
Carlotta, 30, who had taken off her wedding ring before the announcement, is holed up with a pal in Calgary, Canada, after the breakdown of the relationship.
The rift over Maura came as a shock to Carlotta's family, a source told The Sun.
Alex grew close to the Love Island beaut in the last series of the ITV show.
A source said: “Everything had seemed fine and her family thought they were having a good time.
“Now they think they must have been mistaken.
"No one in her family suspected anything was up between them, so obviously this has all been quite a shock.”
The pair are said to have grown apart over the growing friendship between Alex, 28, and Maura, 29.
A source told The Sun on Sunday: “Carlotta and Alex are having a bit of time out from each other at the moment.
“She is stuck in Calgary due to the coronavirus and has not yet been able to go back home to her family, who live in Port Edward, British Columbia.
The last time she was with them was at Christmas when she went home with Alex.”
The revelations do nothing to dampen speculation that the split is due to Alex’s relationship with Maura in the show — and their marriage is now hanging in the balance.
Our source added: “She’s staying with a friend at the moment, but she’s happy where she is. She wants to keep things private.”
Maura has been in isolation at her home in Essex, where she was pictured this week out jogging in a nearby park.
Alex, meanwhile, has not been seen in public since the show ended.
