Dancing on Ice star Donna Air has confirmed her new relationship after splitting from James Middleton after a five year relationship.
The 38-year-old was seen looking smitten with property developer Ben Carrington just days after confirming her breakup from Kate Middleton’s brother.
The pair linked arms as they stepped out in London on Saturday, laughing and giggling as they walked hand-in-hand through the capital.
In pictures obtained by Mail Online, Donna looked smitten with her new beau after confirming her split this weekend.
Donna – who appears on this year’s series of Dancing On Ice – told the Mail On Sunday that it was a amicable decision and the pair still remain on good terms.
She said: “James and I are no longer an item.

“We parted ways in December but remain the very best of friends and always will be.”
Despite them splitting in December, the former couple have seemingly put on a united front with James being pictured cheering on the former Byker Grove actress from the Dancing On Ice audience just last month.
A friend told the newspaper: “Donna has been a rock to James as he has worked on his start-up business over the years and has taken him back each time he has had a wobble about their future. Now she is ready to move on.”
The pair met at a private members club in February 2013 before going public with their relationship in the summer.
They enjoyed a four-year romance before calling things off, only to get back together a few months later.
James has openly spoken about marriage and children with the pretty blonde, and only last year spoke of his love for her.
