In the meantime, Strictly star Karen returned to the ballroom on Saturday night where she danced the American Smooth with Eddie Kadi. Following the performance, which was criticised by the judges, fans noted that Karen appeared visibly upset.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, many noted their concern for the dancer. "Is Karen ok? Her expression is off — did he accidentally injure her, did she hurt herself, is something wrong with her dress? She looked - immediately after the routine, before the feedback - upset. #Strictly," wrote one. 

"#strictly What was wrong with Karen she didn't look herself at all," penned a second.

Karen and Jordan's reported split has taken fans by surprise, as they recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary in June.

Penning a sweet post to his wife, Jordan wrote: "Happy 1st Anniversary, my lovebug! (Autocorrect did this and it's too good not to keep) Can you believe we've survived a year of your snoring and my incessant farting.

"But hey, we're still standing strong, side by side, ready to tackle another year of laughter, love, and plenty of shenanigans! Cheers to us, you troublemaker! Love you to the moon and back you weapon."
