Real life 'Strictly Come Dancing' couple Kara Tointon and Artem Chigvintsev are said to be on the rocks.
According to The Mirror, the couple - who met when Kara was a contestant on the show in 2010 and was partnered with the Russian ballroom dancer - are leading largely separate lives.
The paper also claims that she will not be joining him when he goes to the US in the spring.

A source said: "Things have been a bit rocky between them now for a good few months but they have tried to work through their problems.
"Neither wanted to throw in the towel but Artem’s confided in pals that they actually called time on their romance a few months ago. They simply drifted apart.
"They remain great friends and Artem is still living at Kara’s. And, to the outside world, they are putting on a front, insisting all is well at least until Strictly finishes.”
Earlier this year, Artem's current dance partner, former 'Coronation Street' star Natalie Gumede, declined to comment on whether Kara was jealous of their partnership.

She told Take It Easy magazine: "I wouldn’t like to comment on that, that’s not for me to say... I’m just here to dance."
Kara also told Yahoo! OMG! in October that she hadn't met Natalie: ''I haven't met her yet but I'm wishing her all the luck in the world. She looks pretty damn good I think.''
