DOI’s Alexander Demetriou ‘spotted at Maura Higgins’ home’ amid romance rumours

Married Dancing On Ice star Alexander Demetriou has been spotted leaving Maura Higgins’s home amid speculation a romance between the pair could be heating up.

The 29-year-old professional skate dancer was paired with former Love Island star Maura for the 2020 series of the hit ITV reality snow sport contest.

And in recent weeks, rumours have been rife that Alex and 29-year-old Marua are close during their time on the show – with Maura announcing the end of her romance with 24-year-old Curtis Pritchard ahead of the live final last weekend, and Alex’s marriage said to have collapsed last week.

The Sun on Sunday has claimed photos showing Alexander driving away from a property on Saturday were taken outside Maura’s home – with the skate pro seen hiding beneath a fluffy parka jacket.

Alexander is married to Canadian skate star – and fellow Dancing On Ice professional – Carlotta Edwards.

Sources claim the snaps of Alex leaving Maura’s house will leave the 29-year-old devastated.

“This will devastate Carlotta. As much as her relationship with Alex has deteriorated, they are still married,” a source told the publication.

“She was hanging on to a hope they might be able to fix the unfixable. But it seems very clear there won’t be a way back,” they added.

While an eyewitness insinuated that Alex looked like he didn’t want to be seen as he was spied leaving Maura’s home.

“He had his head down and hood pulled up. Why would you do that just to go to your car?” the source asked.

Maura announced earlier this month that her seven month romance with Love Island and The Greatest Dancer star Curtis had ended.

“Curtis and I have made the decision to separate,” she wrote on Instagram as she broke the news almost two weeks ago.

“We enjoyed a great experience from our time in the villa and want to thank everyone for supporting our relationship,” she continued.

“There is no easy way to get through a breakup and no bad feeling on either side. We tried to make it work but it wasn't to be and I wish Curtis nothing but the best for the future,” she wrote – finishing her post with a broken heart emoji

While Alex and Carlotta’s marriage is said to have come to an end last week in the hours leading up to the 2020 live final of Dancing On Ice.

“Alex’s marriage to Carlotta is all but over, after 11 years together. They are trying to put on a united front for now, but the writing is on the wall,” a source close to the couple told The Sun on Sunday last weekend.

“They haven’t been happy together in months, and Alex has been ­confiding in Maura about their personal problems, which hasn’t helped,” the source went on.

“He is besotted with her, and feels she is a much better fit for him than Carlotta, who is livid she is being pushed to one side,” the source claimed.
