Karen Hauer's ex partner has broken his silence on the couple’s recent split as he claimed Strictly Come Dancing ‘ruined’ their marriage.
Karen, who is the dance show’s longest-serving professional dancer, and her husband Jordan Wyn-Jones reportedly parted ways last month, after they tied the knot last year during a lavish ceremony at Chewton Glen in Hampshire.
Rumours of a split between Karen and her husband Jordan emerged as she was seen attending the Pride of Britain Awards without her wedding ring.
A source then claimed to The Mirror that the couple had been having a “tough time” over the past few months and “decided to split”.
In a new interview since their split, Jordan told The Mail on Sunday that while he will always “admire” Karen's dancing career, it “took her away” from him and their careers weren’t “right for each other”.
He said: “It’s a bit of a love story, a sad story. I’m incredibly sad not to be in Karen’s life, and not on this journey with her but we’re not right for each other in terms of her career.”
“I will always admire her for her career but it took her away from me a lot. She’d be away and I’d be at home on my own.”
Jordan also said that he previously expressed his desire to have children and was confused when he read in a magazine that Karen had said kids were not in her future.
He added: “You do say things like, ‘I want to have kids’. And she’d mentioned to me that she wanted to have kids with me. But in the interview, Karen said ‘kids aren’t in the future’ – which made me sad. I’d always wanted to be a father.”
OK! has contacted Karen's representatives for comment.
Prior to tying the knot with Jordan,Karen had been married twice before, first to former dance partner, Matthew Hauer, whom she split from in 2009.
Karen, who scored the first ten of the series with her partner Eddie Kadi, then tied the knot with fellow Strictly pro Kevin Clifton in 2015. The pair later announced their separation in March 2018. Kevin has since had a baby with his former Strictly partner, Stacey Dooley, whom he met on the show in 2019.
