Dancing On Ice 2013: Matt Lapinskas says girlfriend Shona McGarty isn’t jealous of Brianne Declourt!
Matt Lapinskas has insisted that girlfriend totally trusts him and isn’t worried about him striking up a relationship on Dancing On Ice.
The Eastenders star is in a relationship with his former co star Shona McGarty who plays Whitney Dean. They met on his first day on the set of the BBC soap and started dating two months later. Lapinskas described it as “love at first sight”.
Matt is currently spending a lot of time in training with his professional partner Brianne Delcourt and many women would be jealous of the intimate training sessions. The fact that Brianne is so hot couldn’t help and neither could the knowledge that two celebrities have already started dating their partners this year.
However, Matt insists that his girlfriend completely trusts him and denied reports that she has been arguing with him because of her trust issues.
Lapinskas explained: “I think it was just something that was said. Shona has never been a jealous person, it’s just one of those things but they’ve met now and they get on really well”
However, he claimed that despite their definitely platonic relationship, he and the skating pro do have a great chemistry on the ice. Matt continued:
“Brianne and I have great chemistry and she’s met my family.”
“She’s like my older sister.
“Although I’m not allowed to say, because she’ll tell me off, so she’s my younger sister! It’s more that kind of relationship.”
Sister or not, Delcourt and Lapinskas have gotten themselves into some pretty embarrassing situations and it seems it’s hard to know where to place your hands when doing some of those difficult lifts.
Matt admitted that he has been left with a red face more than once.
‘I was doing a sit lift, where you hand goes in the middle of her bum, and I was a bit too low and Brianne was like, “Yeah you’re on my cha-cha.” I said, “Sorry mate” and she said, “Move your hand to the right,'” he told The Sun.
‘When I hold her sometimes she’s like, “You’re on my bits!” It is quite embarrassing but obviously Brianne is used to it.”
Do you think Shona has a reason to be jealous? Should she be worried? Especially considering the fact that Brianne has dated two previous Dancing On Ice contestants….Leave your comments below…
