Strictly: Matt steals Flavia from Vincent

Strictly Come Dancing pro Vincent Simone has told of his ‘heartbreak’ after Flavia Cacace admitted falling for her celebrity dance partner Matt Di Angelo.

Rumours were rife that Matt and Flavia were enjoying a close relationship both on and off the dancefloor.

But now Vincent has revealed that those suspicions were confirmed at the Strictly Come Dancing wrap party when Flavia admitted she had fallen for ex-EastEnder Matt.

In an interview with The People, Vincent said: “Matt has stolen the only woman I’ve ever loved. I feel empty and am beside myself. I’ve never felt like this before and all I want is to have her back.

“She’s the love of my life and I thought we’d be together forever and get married but now I don’t know what’s going on.”

Vincent, who danced with actress Stephanie Beacham in the latest series of Strictly, said he confronted Flavia at the show’s wrap party when he saw her ‘cuddling up’ to Matt.

“She cried and told me she’d fallen for him. She should have told me before and the fact that she didn’t upset me more. I was so angry and upset with her, disappointed too,” he said.

Vincent admitted that he hopes to make up with Flavia – but is still hurting too much to know what to do.

He said: “I still want to dance with Flavia. I want to be her everything again – her lover, her dance partner and her friend.

“But realistically, she has broken my heart and ruined our relationship, so as much as I want to get back with her I know it wouldn’t be easy. My emotions are too raw and wounds too fresh to think about anything like that.”
