Dancing on Ice professional skater Alexander Demetriou has confirmed his split from wife Carlotta Edwards after four years of marriage.

He announced the news on his Instagram story just weeks after it was first reported the pair were “taking a break” when Carlotta flew back to her native Canada.

In a statement, Alexander, who was partnered with Love Island’s Maura Higgins during the recent series of the ITV skating show, told his followers, “I’m sorry I have been quiet on social media recently but it’s been a tough time personally for me. Carlotta and I have separated.

“Although it saddens me that we can no longer be together, I feel this is best for the both of us. I’m looking forward to what the future will bring but in the meantime let’s all stay home and stay safe. Alex xx.”

It was first reported that Alexander and Carlotta were taking time apart earlier this month.

A source told The Sun, “Carlotta and Alex are taking a break from their marriage and are trying to work out what they want from the future.

“Isolation is giving them a lot of time to think and both are with their families.

“Alex’s friendship with Maura [Higgins] was the first proper crack in their relationship. But now they’re at breaking point.”
