The Love Island hunk, who recently split with girlfriend Amber Davies, looked happier than ever at the official photo call at the Natural History Museum – with his stunning dance partner Alex Murphy.
The 29 year old Boston born skater will be helping Chris Hughes’ best friend on the ice, with hopes to win the show against other celebrities Candice Brown, Donna Air and Anthony Cotton.
The pair looked comfortable in each other’s company as they stopped and posed for snaps, Kem wrapping a protective arm around the blonde starlet as they prepare for the competition’s huge return in January.
Kem looked in high spirits – despite ending his relationship with brunette stunner Amber after just five months together.
And some of the pair’s friend’s even blames the contest for the demise of their relationship.
Star of the 2016 season Alex Bowen has now had his say on the split – and has said Kem’s appearance on Dancing On Ice might be to blame for the pair’s diminished romance.

“I think their split is shocking because they won the show and everyone thought they were the best couple,” Alex told The Sun. “But you don’t know what you’ve got to handle on the outside.
He added: “The fact Kem got Dancing On Ice – that will be taking up a lot of his time. They get on but they don’t have time for each other.”
His bride-to-be Olivia Buckland added: “I’m sure he’s lovely but it’s such a hard thing to make work when you’re so busy. He’s mega busy, it must be so hard for him – it’s just so difficult really.”
Alex herself is happily in a relationship, often sharing sweet snaps with her partner, Doctor Marcus Stammen, on Instagram.
Kem announced his split with Amber with a statement just weeks ago, shocking a nation of Love Island fans.
“With sadness, we’ve decided to separate,” they said in a statement. “We fell in love in the villa and want to thank all the fans of the show for supporting us.
“Our schedules made it difficult. We’ll remain good friends.”
