Dancing on Ice 2013: Samia and Sylvain get personal, Pammy’s romance, and Jason and Karen feud

Yes please! It's Emma Daly's mid-week round-up of the latest DoI gossip...


So, last week it was all cuteness between Pamela Anderson and her skating partner Matt Evers, interviewed wearing “I sk8 with him/her” matching t-shirts after falling foul of the judges at the first hurdle. Yet this week the pair are supposedly in a relationship and they’re going to go public when Pamela comes back for the final show of the series.


Matt’s said to be like a “love-sick puppy” and they’re already planning when they can see each other again, reports the Mirror. Now, we may have been pondering a desire amongst the voting masses for a bit of off-rink romance (hence the spotlight on Samia Ghadie and pro-skater Sylvain Longchambon) but, er, it doesn’t really work if you’ve already been voted off. Awkward.

Talking of Samia and Sylvain, the pair were snapped looking cosy after the show on Sunday, sparking more rumours they’re actually boyfriend and girlfriend. Samia re-tweeted the picture her management had taken, which was captioned “Great photo”. Two-time DoI champ Dan Whiston has been speaking to DigitalSpy about the couple’s relationship saying, “Samia’s got a lot of press following her all the time, but she’s dealing with it well. There’s a lot of pressure on her, but she’s not letting it affect her.” Perhaps it would help if one of them actually denied the rumours? Even former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, who joined the ice panel this year, has told the Sun newspaper, “I’m not here to judge her personal life- but I’d never even like a person who was with someone else.” Oh dear. Although, Ashley has posted a nice picture of the pair on Twitter, kindly reminding us not to believe everything we read.

Dan Whiston has also spilled the beans on feuding judges Karen Barber and Jason Gardiner revealing that their eye rolling and I-know-more-about-everything attitudes aren’t just for our viewing pleasure but that they “don’t speak off camera”. It’s probably for the better really otherwise Jason might accidentally tell her she looks like a walrus or something. Plus, Jason appears to have found some what of a kinship with Ashley, whose scores have more bite than Nandos’ extra hot peri-peri sauce.


So with a Baywatch babe and an Essex ‘babes’ gone, who will face the chop next?
