DENISE Van Outen has been paired up with Matt Evers for the new series of Dancing On Ice.
The news will be disappointing to Rebekah Vardy who wanted to be paired with gay pro skater Matt — to avoid being the victim of any love-cheat rumours.
US star Matt, 44, and Steps singer Ian “H” Watkins were the ITV show’s first same-sex partnership this year.
But now year Matt will be coaching Towie voiceover Denise, 46.
The pair set the tone for their fabulous new partnership as Matt surprised her on stage during a performance at Proud Embankment last night.
Denise showed off her curves in a black sequinned bustier with a red buckled waistcoat as Matt emerged in a matching red and black suit.
"We can hug! We've been tested," Denise said as he joined her on stage.
Matt then got down on one knee and said: "Denise will you be my ice skating partner for Dancing On Ice 2020?"
"Yes I will!" a delighted Denise said.
The news will be a blow to mum-of-five Becky, happily wed to Leicester City striker Jamie, who believed Matt could help her focus on rehearsals ahead of the new series early next year.
A source said: “Becky loves Matt.
"He’s one of the most famous skaters on the show and he’s gay, which means she can spend all her time training and on routines without being linked to him romantically.
“She’s really happy in her relationship with Jamie and doesn’t want anything to rock the boat.
"She thinks they’d have a winning partnership and could go all the way.”
The ITV series is set to start early next year.
However, an ITV source insisted: “There is no truth to this at all. No such conversations took place. Show producers decide the skating partnership.’
