Dancing On Ice pairing Samia Ghadie and Sylvain Longchambon have REFUSED to admit they are together off the ice.

But last night judge of the ITV1 show Jason Gardiner spilled the beans to Yahoo! omg! on their controversial romance.

The panelist told us that the pair - who raised eyebrows when the Frenchman reportedly ditched ex-girlfriend Jennifer Metcalfe for the Corrie star - are in LOVE. Yes really.

Asked about the drama surrounding the pair of skaters he said: "I think it's just two people that have fallen in love. It's that simple."

And quizzed if they are an item, he said: "I believe they are, yes. Isn't that cool?"

But when we bumped into both Sylvain and Samia on the red carpet, neither of them were feeling as in the mood to chat about the relationship.

Asked how he feels about providing a lot of drama on this year's Dancing On Ice, hottie professional ice dancer Sylvain said: "I haven't, somebody else is." (and gave us a cheeky grin).

And he (even more cheekily) told us that he was on the look-out for a girl. Asked if he's single he said "Yes".

And if he's ready to mingle, well err pretty much the same: "Yeah yeah yeah".

Meanwhile Samia didn't look happy at all to be discussing her private life, when we asked how she felt about that being dragged into the spotlight.

But (in Monica's best breezy voice) she told us: "I'm fine, I'm good thank you."

Meanwhile the pair looked VERY SINGLE INDEED as they left the NTAs together last night.

The pair kept their heads down as they walked away from London's O2 arena together, with Samia on the phone.
