Jeff Brazier has denied suggestions he is dating fellow Dancing On Ice contestant Kerry Katona.
The TV presenter rubbished reports that the pair had grown close while training for the current series of the ITV1 show.
Asked by a fan whether there was any truth to the claims, he wrote on Twitter: “What do you think! Don’t get me wrong gang she’s a lovely girl on her way back to her best but I’m as romantically entwined to her as I was with [former Dancing On Ice contestant] Angela Rippon!”
He added: “To be with someone in the public eye again would complicate the kids privacy … and it’s not something I’m ever going to mess with”.
The 31-year-old father-of-two, who partners Canadian Isabelle Gauthier on the ITV1 show, added later: “Just to keep balance KK is a wonderful charismatic girl who I totally support in making a fresh start. Doubt the claim even came from her!”
Kerry later weighed in: “Just so you know it didn’t come from me or my manager either” to which Jeff responded: “I know love, I’ll be linked to [judge] Jason Gardiner next week!”
