The Countdown presenter split from husband Jamie Gilbert after just 16 months just after last year’s show. Blonde Rachel is said to have fallen “head over heels” for her old Strictly partner and has been dating the hunk since the summer. The year-old’s month marriage to Jamie Gilbert broke down during the hit BBC show but new lover Pasha has insisted the couple didn’t get together until Rachel was single. TV insiders said the pair had an “emotional tie” when on the show, but romance was never on the cards while Rachel was married. A source said: “Rachel and Pasha have been spending a lot of time together and have been an item since earlier this simmer. They’re very happy. TV star Rachel has moved close to Pasha’s flat in London and the love struck couple were seen going into her flat last week. Rachel’s marraige split was blamed on the Strictly ‘curse’, which has struck a number of times, with stars such as Flavia Cacace ditching fellow dance boyfriend Vincent Simone for Matt Di Angelo in , and boxer Joe Calzaghe splitting from his long-term girlfriend only to date his partner Kristina Rihanoff soon after in Rachel, 27, shocked pals with the news she and millionaire hubby Jamie were breaking up after just 16 months. At the time a family friend said Jamie, 31, was “shocked and stunned” and added: “He has no idea where this has come from.
The Strictly curse – which relationships have been hit by it?
Strictly Come Dancing has sparked romance in many forms over the years. The BBC ballroom competition has seen many former contestants and professionals go on to get hitched, start families and live happily ever after. It’s for these reasons that Strictly relationships are a topic of conversation every year. With the start of the new series just around the corner, take a look through our gallery of the celebrity contestants taking part this year: who’s married, who’s single and who is perhaps looking for love on the show….
Her Coronation Street character, Eva, went through her fair share of relationship drama but it seems actress Catherine Tyldesley is blissfully enjoying family life. Catherine, who left the soap in June , has been married to personal trainer Tom Pitford since
Caroline Flack. Who is she? Made the headlines for dating Harry Styles before presenting the Xtra Factor. Poached by Cowell’s rivals. What will.
As a country pop darling-turned-“Reputation”-slayer, Taylor Swift has certainly become known for writing songs about the ghosts of boyfriends past. So let’s play a familiar game: Which song is about which of Taylor’s ex’s? We plowed through some of Swift’s biggest hits and matched the lyrics to 13 of Swift’s high-profile reported former relationships. It’s all based on clues, speculation and a few rumors, so there’s no guarantee we got ’em all right.
But here are our guesses — look and listen. Before he broke up with her over a second phone call, Joe Jonas and Taylor Swift seemed to be going strong. Her original reactions to the break-up — “Last Kiss” and “Forever and Always” — were a little more scathing, but her latest perspective on the Jonas Brother — “Holy Ground” — is a lot more positive.
She seems to have gotten over Jonas and is looking back at all the things she loved about dating her fellow pop star. Swift’s “You Belong With Me” co-star Lucas Till won her heart on the set of the hit music video, but their relationship was short-lived. There didn’t seem to be much drama, which is perhaps why Till seems to never have had a Swift song written about him. He later spoke out about their brief try at dating, saying that it “didn’t work out” because he “really just liked her as a friend.
Why assume she’s talking about the former teen wolf, who first caught Swift’s eye on the set of their “Valentine’s Day” flick? Well, she referenced his “tan skin” and “sweet smile. What likely began as a sweet summer connection ended on a sour note and, of course, in song or, more likely, several songs.

Just as Strictly Come Dancing returns to our screens, we learn that last year’s contestant Rachel Riley is dating her dance partner. Can you remember who else has fallen under the PM BST 08 Sep Strictly Come Dancing is back!
However, it seems Rachel Riley has now joined their ranks after starting a relationship with the professional dancer she partnered on the BBC show last year. Russian-born Pasha Kovalev, 34, confirmed that he has been seeing the year-old — best-known as the resident maths genius on Channel 4 quiz Countdown — since early summer. He said they started their relationship after Miss Riley split with her husband Jamie Gilbert, whom she met while at Oxford University. They later left separately.
I would like people to focus on the show. Confirmation: Dancer Pasha has revealed that he started dating Rachel after the breakdown of her marriage. Serious chat: The pair looked deep in conversation as they entered Rachel’s home. The pair were spotted together just hours before Pasha was paired up with Caroline Flack on the launch of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing. As luck would have it, the pictures appeared only hours before the opening episode of the latest series of Strictly was broadcast on BBC1 last night.
Mr Kovalev, who this year will partner broadcaster Caroline Flack, and Miss Riley were the source of much speculation when they danced together on Strictly. You could see that they had a soft spot for each other when they were on the show. Dance diva: Rachel, seen here with Pasha, left Strictly Come Dancing after six weeks in the competition but their chemistry was hard to ignore. Their marriage lasted only 16 months before they split — her heavy work schedule was blamed and she said no one else was involved.
