Thursday January 6, 2011

Their on screen chemistry helped them waltz their way to the top of the Strictly Come Dancing leadership board.

And now Kara Tointon and Artem Chigvintsev have finally confirmed they are dating.

27-year-old Kara revealed on This Morning that the pair spent the festive period together and are very happy so far.

The former Eastenders actress said: 'We are an official item now yes! And we went to LA for New Year and that was lovely... I feel very lucky that I've met someone that I'm getting on so well with."

She added: "Christmas was lovely and Artem spent it with my family and it was really nice. They all got on really well thank God!"
