Dancing on Ice’s Kye Whyte is rumored to be keeping an eye on professional skater Morgan Swales.
The 22-year-old Olympic BMX star has been branded a “crusher” and doesn’t seem to mind that Morgan has a boyfriend.
Morgan, also 22, from Sheffield is dating ice hockey player Cole Shudra.
The couple have been together for six years.
A source told The Sun: “Kye is funny behind the scenes and loves to flirt with all the women.
“But the poor guy has his eye on a girl he can’t have.
“Morgan is gorgeous so you can’t blame him for trying. But when she posted a Instagram texting Cole on Valentine’s Day, it’s clear that she doesn’t care about Kye’s efforts.
British competitive figure skater who has been skating since the age of 9 and has competed in national and international tournaments.
Reminiscing about getting into skating for the first time, she said: “I first started skating when I was 9 years old and this came from seeing Dancing on the ice on television.
“I just wanted to hang out. So I pestered my mom so I could start studying.”
She also starred in Netflix Zero Chill series.

Kye, who grew up in Peckham, spoke out recently about how he has lost many friends to gangs in London.
He credited his passionate cycling father for keeping him on track and away from crime.
“I had friends who got caught up in gang life, 100%, and I still have friends in that life now.
“I have friends who have gone that route and are not here with us now or in prison. I just know that’s a path I’m not going to take.”
His father founded and coached at Peckham BMX Club – where Kye loves the sport.
Kye said: “When I was young, he was very strict. “First of all, he is my coach. Second, my dad played every sport under the sun. So if it wasn’t a bike, he would take me into another sport. “
He’s not the only one in his family who loves sports, his two older sisters do gymnastics and one sister also rides BMX.

But for Kye, his passion doesn’t come without pain. When he was 13 years old, he was in a coma for 5 days after an accident.
He said he was in a ward with five other people, adding that “the kind of ward you’re dying in”.
But the daredevil didn’t let that knock his confidence and says he still rides the bike that may have killed him to this day.
