It was recently revealed Alex and Carlotta’s four-year marriage had ‘collapsed’, following his pairing with Maura on the ITV contest last year, where Alex allegedly became ‘besotted’ with the Irish beauty.

A source told the publication: ‘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.’

The insider went on to say that the couple’s friends are of the belief their ‘marriage is over’ due to Alex’s closeness with Maura, adding that the ‘trust’ the pair is ‘shattered’. 

They added that at the start of the furore it was believed to have been ‘just a flirtation’ between Maura and Alex, but with the two now in ‘constant contact’, their closeness is now ‘obvious’ for everyone to see.

The source went on to say that Carlotta was initially ‘hell bent’ on keeping up the ‘pretence’ of her marriage, but has now come to terms with the situation and is reassessing what to do next. 

MailOnline have contacted representatives of Maura, while representatives of Alex and Carlotta declined to comment.

Last month it was reported that Carlotta had jetted to the home of parents Nancy and Peter in Port Edward, British Columbia to escape the furore surrounding her relationship. 

A source told The Sun: ‘Carlotta feels utterly humiliated that Alex has fallen for Maura and seems to have abandoned their marriage.

‘She tried to put a brave face on things during the final but she needed to get away from them both. She is now spending time with her family.’

They added: ‘The fact Alex has since been seen having coffee with Maura and leaving her home speaks volumes.’

In March, Maura’s professional skating partner Alex was seen leaving her house.

In pictures obtained by The Sun, the skater was wearing a hooded parka jacket as he drove away from her flat in a BMW last Saturday.

The publications reports the pair had spent ‘several hours’ together before he made his exit.

The reports came after it was claimed Maura split from her Love Island boyfriend Curtis Pritchard earlier this year after rows over her friendship with the skater.

Responding to speculation linking Maura and Alex, Curtis recently revealed that Maura forbid him from coming to watch her skate with Alex and that he’s sure nothing ‘more’ happened between the pair.

Curtis, 24, said to The Sun: ‘I have no proof that anything more has happened between them. I don’t like to think about it.

‘I don’t want to look back over the past few months for warning signs. But it’s not nice to read about her relationship with Alex and to see pictures of them together.

‘I went to her first three shows, but after that she asked me not to come. She said she had terrible nerves and it was easier without me there. 

‘I just accepted that. I wasn’t concerned about there being anything romantic between her and Alex.

‘But as the weeks went on our relationship deteriorated, and then at the beginning of March, we agreed to go our separate ways.

‘It hurt. I wasn’t ready for everyone to know we had split up – I wanted some time. It was a shock to see that she had announced it on social media hours later.’
