Artem Chigvintsev swept Kara Tointon, 28, off her feet when they danced their way to Strictly victory last year.
The couple moved in together this summer but Artem, 29, has been moaning about their relationship to 2011 partner Holly Valance.
Distance was a main factor." We know, this has come out of nowhere but yes, Artem was once a married man, and unlike his dating affairs and relationships with girlfriends, his married life with the wife was a very short-lived one, as he split with her just eight months after getting hitched.
Artem got married to a ballroom dancer by the name Giselle Peacock in 2004.
Planting a passionate kiss on the soap actress' lips, before an audience of millions as they were crowned winners of this year's contest, he confirmed what has been an open secret for weeks – the twinkle-toed pair are crazy for each other.‘Well, not quite the experience I had – let me rephrase that!’ With Holly, 28, about to move into a flash penthouse with multimillionaire boyfriend Nick Candy, we can’t see her falling for Artem.The couple started dating in 2016 as their dating affair got confirmed after being spotted affectionately at Philosophy Hope & Grace Luncheon for Mental Health Month in L. However, almost a year later, news of their split hit the media in May of 2017."Torrey broke up with him about a month or two ago, and Artem is pretty bummed about it.
