Karen Hauer of Strictly Come Dancing is rumoured to be dating again after her marriage ended.
Following her split with Jordan Wyn-Jones, the dancer, who is the longest-serving professional on Strictly, is supposedly romancing an ex-rugby player and personal trainer named Simon Davidson.
Karen, a Venezuelan dancer, divorced her spouse Jordan last year after a year of marriage.
Karen, 41, graced the Pride of Britain Awards red carpet without her wedding band on, sparking speculation that their relationship was on the rocks.
According to sources, she and Jordan were having a ‘difficult time’.
Despite their traumatic separation, which included’stolen’ engagement rings and confessions about not having children, Karen is said to be back in love following a trip to the Lake District with Simon.
Karen did, in fact, take to Instagram over the weekend to share some photos from her romantic holiday, including sharing one of Simon’s shots to her own Story.
The couple took in the breathtaking scenery and even sat by the lake to watch the sunset.
As per The Mirror, the fitness-mad pair were introduced by mutual friends from Strictly, Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez.
They were seen leaving the Strictly final in the same car last month, when they were just pals.
According to insiders, things have now escalated and they are now an item.
‘Karen and Simon have lots in common, so when Gemma and Gorka introduced them, they hit it off immediately,’ an insider said.
They added: ‘Karen was keen to take things slowly and they were friends for a while at first. But gradually things became romantic, and though they have tried to keep their relationship quiet, they are now a proper couple.
‘Karen’s friends and family are thrilled, because 2023 was an incredibly hard year for her and all they want is to see her happy.’
The separation between the Strictly Come Dancing judge and Jordan was ‘amicable’ last year, with Jordan subsequently sitting down for an interview in which he admitted to feeling ‘very sad’ about the whole affair.
He also stated that if they had stayed together and not had children, he would have ‘ended up resenting’ Karen.
‘This is the perfect moment for us to love each other and leave each other.’
Jordan, who married Karen in a romantic wedding at Chewton Glen Country House Hotel in the New Forest, said there were ‘tears on both sides’ when they realised their marriage was gone.
Karen’s most recent love developments, on the other hand, occur after she thought on her 2023 and the ‘poison’ she faced.
Karen, who was matched with Eddie Kadi in the previous series, uploaded a poem about trauma on Instagram on New Year’s Eve.
It read: ‘I thought the trauma had broken me, but really it gave my life direction.

‘The toxicity made me embrace communication and honesty.
‘The manipulation made me realign with my own power.
‘The narcissism showed me that selflessness is needed.
‘The chaos taught me to build boundaries.
‘The hurt showed me that healing and rebirth are possible.’
Karen captioned the post to say she is ‘moving forward’.
