David, 50, told the Mail Online that he owes everything to the show.

He said: "If it wasn't for the show, I may not have met her."

David met Frankie, 40, during rehearsals for the show's five-week live tour that began in April 2008. At the time, their relationship raised eyebrows as he was married to his second wife Debbie Rogers, with whom he has two children.

But David and Frankie are happier than ever and are to star in the ninth and final series of the skating show together, airing in January 2014.

He says: "It is going to be extra special when this series starts.

"We are engaged now and [...] it is nice to be able to dance together."
