Strictly Come Dancing stars Louis Smith and Dani Harmer are dancing solo after splitting with their other halves.

The Olympic medal-winning gymnast ended his romance with Chantelle Hole, which he said was ‘never serious’, as he revealed a crush on fellow Strictly contestant Kimberley Walsh.

“Chantelle is not my girlfriend. I am single and free to talk to, text and meet other women, like Kimberley Walsh, who is beautiful,” he told The Sun.

Louis, who is paired with dance pro Flavia Cacace, added: “The thing about having a crush on a celebrity like that, if you’ve never met them, you are attracted to them, but when you meet them it changes. Now we’re on the same show, we get on well. We’re like mates.”

Tracy Beaker actress Dani has been focusing on training with partner Vincent Simone since her split with TV assistant director Graeme Livingstone.

“Dani is a tough cookie and she decided it wouldn’t get her down. She must be hurting, but she hasn’t called off training – there has been no crying in the corner and she is very focused on the routines,” a source told the paper.
