Is Brianne married?
There's been a lot of speculation surrounding Brianne's love life.
She has previously been linked to Coronation Street actor Danny Young as well as EastEnders star Sam Attwater, both of whom she met through Dancing on Ice.
The Canadian skater also dated soap star Matt Lapinskas after they were partnered up on the show in 2013, but the couple split following accusations he cheated on her with two other women.
In 2016, Brianne told her Instagram fans she was pregnant and engaged to a mystery man, but has since split with her fiancé.
The ice dancer went on to give birth to a little girl named Gracie Isabella on 5th November, 2016, but has remained tight-lipped about the identity of the father.
