Dancing On Ice 2013: Beth Tweddle has split from boyfriend Steve Cryer after their romance “fizzled out”
It’s been reported today that Olympic gymnast and Dancing On Ice star Beth Tweddle is single again having split from her boyfriend of three years, Steve Cryer.
However, a source close Beth – who as we reported yesterday is on the lookout for a new career – revealed that the parting of the ways was a mutual decision for the couple.
The insider told TV Biz, “Beth and Steven made a mutual decision to split…
“They spent a lot of time apart during the Olympics and now skating is taking up all of her time.
This is of course the third break-up behind the scenes of this year’s series, given that Samia Ghadie split from her boyfriend Will Thorp after growing close to her pro-skating partner Sylvain Longchambon, who also broke up with his girlfriend, Hollyoaks star Jennifer Metcalfe.
However, former contestant Anthea Turner has credited the show with being an important factor in the repair of her marriage to Grant Bovey. The pair have of course faced allegations that Grant had an affair.
She recently said, “Dancing On Ice was at the right time for me.
“I think sometimes if you have too much time on your hands, you spend too much time thinking, rethinking, doing creative thinking.
“We’re women, that’s what we do — we pick over things, reconstruct things and morph things that aren’t even there.
“So actually the skating was fabulous because you have to concentrate on it and it did it for me.”
Here’s a reminder of one of Beth’s recent DOI performances…
