Curtis Pritchard’s manager has shut down romance rumours with Holly Carpenter and said: “They are simply friends”.
The pair were partnered together for Dancing with the Stars but never got the chance to perform on the programme together, as Curtis suffered an injury as a result of a nightclub attack at Christmas.
The pro-dancer and former Miss Ireland stayed close throughout his recovery though, as it was reported by The Irish Mirror that the pair enjoyed a Valentine’s date together last week and a source claimed: “Yes, they are dating. It is all very new for them.”
The dancer’s manager has now shut down the rumours, as he told The Irish Sun: “Curtis and Holly are categorically not dating each other.”
“This is just not true. They are simply friends.”
Curtis’ manager went on to say that the 23-year-old cancelled a recent night out with Holly because he didn’t want to add fuel to the romance rumours.
“Curtis cancelled the night out because he is not very happy with this coverage about a romance between himself and Holly and doesn’t want people thinking something which isn’t true. Curtis and Holly are friends but they are not going out.”
