Virtually every year on “Strictly Come Dancing”, there is always at least one romance that blossoms. Last year, it was Ali Bastian and Brian Fortuna (who have now allegedly split) but this year the surprise potential new couple is Tina O’Brien and Gavin Henson!
According to insiders at “Strictly Come Dancing”, Tina O’Brien and Gavin Henson have become quite attached to one another and have been spotted flirting backstage at the show.
A source said, “They’ve been flirting like mad behind the scenes and everyone thinks they’d make a great couple. It’s no secret that Gavin is gagging for it – he’s a red-blooded male after all. Tina is hot so it’s no surprise he’s interested.”
Gavin Henson – although a talented rugby star – may best be known for his long term relationship with Charlotte Church. The two split up earlier this year but have two children together. Tina O’Brien was also formerly in a high profile relationship for six years with Coronation Street co-star Ryan Thomas. They had a daughter together but split a year later.
The idea of Tina O’Brien and Gavin Henson getting together is an interesting one because it has looked an awful lot like Henson has quite the thing for his dance partner Katya Virshilas. He even mentioned on the show that he might find it easier to dance with Katya if she were interested in him. Katya Virshilas however, has reportedly banned Gavin from dating while he is on the show. The claim from the show’s source that Gavin Henson is “gagging for it” might not be the most flattering thing that has ever been said about him, and surely won’t endear Tina O’Brien to him but – not everything in the papers is necessarily the truth.
“Strictly Come Dancing” is still only a few weeks into its run, so there is plenty more time for the truth about this story to come to light.
