Dancing On Ice couple Alexander Demetriou and Carlotta Edwards have been hit by bold claims that their three-year marriage has reportedly collapsed after he was paired with Love Island star Maura Higgins.

It has been claimed that the couple are close to announcing their separation, after Alex allegedly became ‘besotted’ with Maura, 29, during their time skating on the ITV show, leaving Carlotta, 34, ‘furious’.

It comes just days after it was claimed that Maura split from her Love Island boyfriend Curtis Pritchard after rows over her friendship with skater Alexander, 29.

A source told The Sun On Sunday that the cracks reportedly first appeared in Alexander and Carlotta’s marriage in 2019, when he was paired with Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton.

Carlotta was reportedly left jealous of their friendship, and thought she and Alexander had overcome the difficult patch when that series came to an end.

But things are said to have only got worse this year when Alexander was paired with Maura.

It has also been claimed that Alexander confided in Maura about his marital problems, even after the pair were eliminated from the show several weeks ago, with their chemistry catching the eye of several Dancing On Ice co-stars.

Alexander and Carlotta are reportedly trying to put on a united front, but once the currently series is over will allegedly begin announcing their separation.

The source told The Sun: ‘They haven’t been happy together in months, and Alex has been ­confiding in Maura about their personal problems, which hasn’t helped.’ 

They added: ‘Their marriage seems to be broken beyond repair, and friends and family are now expecting them to make that publicly known once Dancing On Ice is over.’ 

Together: Alex and Carlotta met in 2008 while performing on Disney On Ice together, and married in 2016 (pictured performing on Dancing On Ice)

Despite the claims, Alexander and Carlotta both appeared on each other’s social media as recently as last month.  

Maura’s spokesperson has since dismissed any suggestion that Maura’s partnership with Alex contributed to her recent split, telling MailOnline: ‘Maura and Curtis mutually decided to separate due to busy schedules.’ 

A representative for Dancing On Ice declined to comment when approached by MailOnline.

Close: The reports come just days after it was claimed that Maura had split from her boyfriend Curtis, after rows about her friendship with Alexander

The reports come just days after it was claimed that Maura had split from her boyfriend Curtis, after rows about her friendship with Alexander.

It was also reported last month that Carlotta had been left troubled by their ‘close relationship’ and was worried Maura ‘had turned her husband’s head.’

A source told The Sun: ‘Maura spent hours and hours with Alex in rehearsals for weeks and they have got really close.  

‘They have grown very friendly and it’s not gone unnoticed with the rest of the cast and crew — or Carlotta.’ 

Rows: Earlier this week Maura and Curtis were also hit by claims that they had secretly split three months earlier (pictured on Love Island over the summer) 

This report came after Maura was spotted having a catch-up with her Dancing On Ice partner Alexander on Tuesday following her split from Curtis. 

The ‘upset’ reality star was seen grabbing a coffee with the professional skater in Chelmsford, Essex on Tuesday. 

Earlier this week Maura and Curtis were also hit by claims that they had secretly split three months earlier.

The former grid girl allegedly felt pressured to stay in her relationship with the professional dancer, 24, in a bid to boost their profile, despite only announcing their split on Monday – claims that Curtis strongly denies. 

‘Arguments’: It had also been claimed that Alex’s friendly relationship with Maura has caused arguments with his Dancing On Ice skater wife Carlotta Edwards (pictured in December) 

According to a source speaking to The Sun, Maura and Curtis’ relationship turned sour following their row at the National Television Awards in January.

The couple were reportedly told that if they stayed together they could make millions.

The source said: ‘Maura felt pressured to stick with him. They had booked jobs together, parties they had to attend.

‘When they met in Love Island it was genuine. But when the showbiz treadmill started on the outside, it was a sham.’

A representative for Curtis told MailOnline that Curtis had not been unfaithful to Maura and the pair had not faked any aspect of their relationship

On Monday a source confirmed to MailOnline that Maura and Curtis had officially split, just eight months after they met in the Love Island villa.
