Schofield: Ice show fuels romance
Phillip Schofield says it will do Samia Ghadie no harm if she gets close to pro-skater Sylvain Longchambon - and could even help her win.
Corrie star Samia has insisted she's still single following rumours about her friendship with her Dancing On Ice partner.
But host Phillip told The Sun: "If they are close, or very close, or extremely close, then it won't do them any harm at all.
"If she and her partner are getting on, then it does tend to help. Samia could win."
He said of the show: "It is a hotbed of romance. There is a possibility of a romance between all of them. I don't know what it is with ice, sequins and fake tan but they are rampant."
Phillip also insisted that show bosses were not worried Pamela Anderson's early exit from the series, despite reports that her flop appearance could have cost ITV as much as £1,000 a second.
The former Baywatch beauty was the first celebrity to be axed, following a stumble and a wardrobe malfunction.
But Phillip said: "My boss is not panicking that Pamela has gone. They are sad, as we loved having her there."
He also said returning judges Jason Gardiner and Karen Barber are still feuding, telling the newspaper: "There is an icy divide and they have not made up at all. They genuinely do not like each other."
