Maura Higgins’ Dancing On Ice partner removes wedding ring as they reunite
Dancing on Ice pro Alexander Demetriou was spotted without his wedding ring as he reunited with Maura Higgins for the final.
The skater has reportedly split from his wife Carlotta Edwards after four years of marriage amid rumours of jealousy over his partnership with Love Island beauty Maura.
Alexander, 28, and Maura, 29, who were booted out on last week's show, reunited for last night's final, watching Joe Swash skate to victory as he took the 2020 title.
As the contestants chatted to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, Maura was seen standing in front of Alexander, who had a hand on her shoulder.
He is clearly without a ring on his left hand.
It comes amid rumours Maura was kept apart from Carlotta during last night's final to avoid any tensions.
The British skater married 29-year-old Canadian skater Carlotta in 2016, but The Sun on Sunday reported the marriage has ended after Alexander was paired with Love Island star Maura.
A source close to the couple told the paper: "Alex’s marriage to Carlotta is all but over, after 11 years together.
"They are trying to put on a united front for now, but the writing is on the wall.
"They haven’t been happy together in months, and Alex has been confiding in Maura about their personal problems, which hasn’t helped,” the source went on.
"He is besotted with her, and feels she is a much better fit for him than Carlotta, who is livid she is being pushed to one side."
Rumours have also suggested the couple have been strained after Alex was paired with Pussycat Dolls star Melody Thornton in the 2019 competition.
Last week, Maura shocked fans when she revealed her relationship with Love Island co-star Curtis Pritchard had come to an end.
The pair split eight months after leaving the villa.
