Strictly Come Dancing 2010: Kara Tointon says Artem Chigvintsev is ‘rather fanciable!’

by Lisa McGarry

Kara Tointon is worried her relationship with Artem Chigvintsev will fizzle out once ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ ends.

The former ‘EastEnders’ actress has formed a close friendship with the Russian dancer and although she has refused to confirm whether they are dating, Kara is concerned what will happen when the show ends.

She said: “You’re flung into a room every day with a beautiful guy and we’re having such a great time. I’m loving every minute, but it’s an odd situation to be in. It’s not really the environment to start . but I’m not opposed to starting any of that.

“He is rather fanciable, yeah! We might not have anything in common. I guess when all of this is over we shall see but we’re getting on really well and I’m having the time of my life.”

This Saturday (13.11.10), Kara and Artem – who topped the leaderboard on last week’s show – will perform an Argentine Tango, and she is determined it won’t be their last dance.

She added to ITV1’s ‘This Morning’: “We are doing the Argentine Tango and it’s passionate. I’m in the bubble and I don’t want it to end.”
