"I'm looking forward to what the future will bring but in the meantime let's all say home and stay safe."

Alexander’s confirmation of his marriage breakdown comes after the 28 year old’s friendship with Love Island star Maura Higgins, 29, after they were partners on the latest series of Dancing on Ice.

Carlotta, 30, who was paired with Ben Hanlin on DOI, is said to be in her native Canada with her family currently and has not yet issued a statement on the split.

It was reported weeks ago that the pair’s four-year marriage had "collapsed".

A source told The Sun: "Carlotta and Alex are taking a break from their marriage and are trying to work out what they want from the future.

"Isolation is giving them a lot of time to think and both are with their families.

"Alex’s friendship with Maura was the first proper crack in their relationship. But now they’re at breaking point."

They insider added: “Their friends think the marriage is over because of how close Alex is with Maura. The trust between them has been shattered."

A spokesman for Maura told MailOnline at the time: "Maura and Alex had a great friendship whilst training for DOI this was always and has always been just professional, she regards him as a close friend and will continue to do so although they have not spoken in a few weeks.

"Maura has been single since splitting with Curtis, and is spending her time focusing on herself and some exciting projects she has lined up in the near future."

Maura insisted she and Alexander were “just friends” after he was spotted leaving her flat in March.

She wrote to her 154,000 Twitter followers: “2020 & yet again a man & woman can not be friends!

“Me & Alex are friends + joe and I are friends! YES I have more male friends than female! GET OVER IT!!!” [sic]
