Alexandra Schauman first joined DOI in 2010 and is married to fellow Dancing on Ice pro Lukasz Rozycki. Here's everything you need to know about Joe Swash's dancing partner.
The ice skating star, who was born in Finland, first appeared on the hit show back in 2010 when she was paired with Dr Hilary Jones.
So who is Alexandra Schauman? What was her career before DOI and who is her pro skater husband?
Alexandra Schauman is a Finnish figure skater.
The ice skating star was born in Porvoo, Finland, on 17th June 1980.
Her most notable accolade was scoring 7th place in the junior ladies' singles event at the 1996 Finnish Championships.
In 2008, Alex got her first TV break performing in the Swedish version of Dancing on Ice and was named runner-up with her football partner Jesper Blomqvist.
Following her success on the Scandinavian equivalent of the show, the Finnish beauty joined the British cast and appeared on series 5 in 2010.
After signing up to the UK cast in 2010, Alexandra was paired with Dr. Hilary Jones but the duo were eliminated in week six of the competition.
The Finnish star continued to skate for the next two seasons, teaming up with cricketer Dominic Cork and children's TV presenter Sam Nixon.
After taking a year off from the contest, she returned in 2014 and paired up with Eastenders actor Todd Carty for a special All Stars edition.
Then, in 2019, she returned once more – this time alongside Strictly star and professional dancer James Jordan.
The duo enjoyed huge success and went on to win series 11.
Alexandra is married to fellow Dancing on Ice skating professional Lukasz Rozycki.
The competitive duo, who have been together for almost 20 years, regularly share sweet photos of themselves via her social media page.
