Sylvain Longchambon Insists He's Done Nothing Wrong After Dumping Jennifer Metcalfe For Samia Ghadie

Dancing On Ice hunk Sylvain Longchambon has broken his silence over his split from former girlfriend Jennifer Metcalfe, insisting he hasn't done anything wrong.

The skater ditched the gorgeous Hollyoaks star on Christmas Day after reportedly falling for his new skating partner, and Jen's soap rival, Samia Ghadie, who had conveniently split from her long-term squeeze Will Thorp just days previously.

A heartbroken Jen reportedly then kicked love-rat Sylvain out of their Liverpool love nest and he slunk off down South to the home he has been sharing with other dancers near the show's studio in Elstree.

The curvy beauty previously told The Sun that the split was like coping with a bereavement, she said: "It's like a death. I feel gutted. It was the worst Christmas ever. You grieve for all the plans you had in your head. It is a grieving. When you cut someone out of your life like that it's pretty harsh."

But now, Sylvain has decided to speak out and give his version of the story.

He tells The Sun: "The press we've had was all from Jennifer's point of view. I've done nothing wrong. I've been honest from A to C."

Sylvain admits that things got frosty between them after news of her heartache hit the headlines, and adds: "I've not been in touch with Jennifer, I'm just focusing on my work and the skating."

And what about his reported new love interest Samia?

The French skater says, "A few days before the show started we were trying not to look at the newspapers everyday. It was upsetting. She's (Samia) really small, I'm quite protective of her."
