Ex-EastEnders star Matt Di Angelo has reportedly split from his Strictly Come Dancing partner Flavia Cacace.

Matt began dating the 28-year-old dancer after they were partnered on the BBC1 talent show last autumn. The pair quickly grew closer as they rehearsed for the show, in which Matt came second.

But Matt, 21, has apparently been spotted out with former Liberty X singer Michelle Heaton, 27, at London’s Mahiki nightclub after her recent split from husband Andy Scott Lee, according to reports in The Sun.

A source told the newspaper: “It’s a huge shock to everyone and they are both devastated it’s over.

“Because they met on the set of Strictly, their relationship got very intense very quickly.

“They were spending every day together and living in each other’s pockets. They became incredibly close.”

Matt and Flavia continued dancing together on the Strictly Come Dancing tour in January and February this year – but now Flavia is back dancing with professional dancer Vincent Simone, 29, who she previously dated for 11 years.

The insider added: “Everything was OK while they were dancing together but after Flavia started working with Vincent again things got a bit awkward.”
