Kara’s heart gets a lift from dash­ing new doc­tor beau

Daily Mail - - Life -

WHEN Mr Sel­fridge star Kara Toin­ton won Strictly Come Danc­ing in 2010, it wasn’t just the BBC’s glit­ter­ball tro­phy she took home.

The ac­coun­tant’s daugh­ter cap­tured the heart of her dance part­ner, Artem Chigv­int­sev (be­low), and waltzed into a three-year ro­mance.

Kara, 33, was ‘heart­bro­ken’ when their re­la­tion­ship ended, but, I can re­veal, she has found love again, with a dash­ing blond physi­cian called Dr Mar­ius Jensen.

Kara in­tro­duced me to him at Robin­son’s VIP suite at Wim­ble­don on Satur­day. ‘He’s not an ac­tor, he’s a chi­ro­prac­tor,’ she said, adding mys­te­ri­ously: ‘That’s sort of how we met . . .’

Dr Jensen, also 33, was born in Nor­way, but runs his own prac­tice in West Lon­don’s Not­ting Hill, where he treats fa­mous ath­letes, mu­si­cians and ac­tors. He re­cently de­vised the ‘Jensen Method’, which de­liv­ers be­spoke ex­er­cise regimes and di­ets.

He can be seen in­cor­po­rat­ing Kara into his regime on so­cial me­dia, where he is pic­tured balanc­ing the 5ft 4in ac­tress on his shoul­ders while she man­ages to hold on to her mo­bile. Es­sex-born Kara has been in­tro­duc­ing Dr Jensen to her close friends and suc­cess­fully nav­i­gated a po­ten­tially awk­ward en­counter at Wim­ble­don when she bumped into her ex, EastEn­ders ac­tor Joe Swash. Kara, whose ca­reer be­gan on the soap opera, po­litely kissed Swash on the cheek be­fore in­tro­duc­ing him to her new lover, with whom he shook hands. The ac­tress hinted in 2015 that BBC pro­duc­ers con­trived her re­la­tion­ship with Rus­sian hoofer Artem, 35, by plac­ing the two un­at­tached stars to­gether. ‘I was de­ter­mined we wouldn’t get to­gether,’ said Kara. ‘Then you’re spend­ing so much time with this per­son and he was so won­der­ful . . . so yes, it was in­evitable.’

Any­one for ten­nis? Kara with chi­ro­prac­tor Mar­ius at Wim­ble­don
