Alex and his Dancing On Ice pro colleague, Carlotta Edwards, “would take a break,” close friends worried that it might be permanent.
Alex, 28, has been reported to have been in “constant contact” with his partner Dancing on Ice, Maura Higgins, 29, since they were paired in the ITV skating competition.
Alex is said to have withdrawn his wedding ring in January and now Carlotta, 30, is said to have removed her ring after four years of marriage.
The Sun reported that Carlotta returned to her native Canada before the travel restrictions and confinement caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Alex stayed in the UK but Maura always denied that there was anything romantic between them and that they were just good friends.
She recently exposed rumors of an affair between her and Alex, challenging the stereotype that men and women cannot be good friends.
She tweeted: “2020 and again a man and a woman cannot be friends!
“Me and Alex are friends + joe and I’m friends! YES, I have more male friends than female!

Meanwhile, Curtis Pritchard, 24, a partner with Maura’s Love Island, denounced photos of his ex and Alex together, saying it is difficult to see them together.
Despite this, he revealed that he had “no evidence that anything more had happened between them.”
He told The Sun, “I don’t want to look back over the past few months for warning signs.
“But it’s not nice to read about his relationship with Alex and see them together. “
