And now former East Enders star Kara Tointon, 27, has hinted that she will start dating her Russian dance partner Artem Chigvintsev – but only when this year's series finishes.Artem, 28, has been spotted entering Kara's flat at night after a day's training for the show, but the actress insists their relationship has, so far at least, remained professional. 'We have arguments and I have walked out when he has shouted at me.Kara, who left East Enders last year, split from Joe Swash, who had played her brother in the soap, after constant rows, say friends.They reportedly had a blazing bust-up backstage before appearing in Snow White at Bristol Hippodrome last year.’ With Holly, 28, about to move into a flash penthouse with multimillionaire boyfriend Nick Candy, we can’t see her falling for Artem.So let’s hope Kara‘s pressure doesn’t lead to him telling her to Foxtrot Oscar.

Asked if he fancied Kara, Artem replied swiftly: 'Who wouldn't?
