Maura Higgins from Dancing On Ice is ‘swallowed up in drama between pro-skating partner Alexander Demetriou and his wife Carlotta because they are said to be too close’
Since she is on Dancing On Ice, Maura Higgins has come closer to her dance partner Alexander Demetriou – and it seems that his wife Carlotta has noticed.
It is reported that Carlotta, 34, who is also a professional in the ITV series, suffers from their close relationship and claims that her husband was beaten by the former Love Island star.
Maura, 29, is still romantically connected to her Love Island darling Cutis Pritchard, 24, but has recently spoken of her proximity to Alex, 28.

According to The sun, a source claimed that Carlotta questions Maura’s motives and has spoken behind the scenes about not trusting her husband.
Carlotta is reportedly concerned that Maura “turned her husband’s head”, that she is “not a girl girl” and “has not bothered” with Carlotta while working on the show.
According to the source, Carlotta complains to other dancers that Alex spends so much time with Maura and that he “only seems to be interested in finding fame.”
Both Alex and Carlotta joined the series as professional dancers last year.

Meanwhile, last month, Maura fell unwell and was almost forced to withdraw from the live show later that week after a high temperature.
Maura shared a selfie with bare faces, dressed in a fluffy bathrobe, and looked depressed as she brought the news to fans on social media.
She admitted that she felt “absolutely awful” while she wrote, “My training was canceled today because my temperature was too high!”
Maura added, “Praying that I am good for Sunday but may need a miracle.”
