She’s come a long way from her shaky start in the first few weeks of this year’s series of the X Factor (where she eventually placed second) to become one of the contestants on 2019’s Dancing On Ice, alongside, Jayne Torvill Christopher Dean and Ashley Banjo, but Saara Aalto might just become the UK’s favourite ice skater.

Thirty-one-year-old Saara, revealed her engagement to her partner, Meri Sopanen through an interview with OK Magazine and apparently her girlfriend waited for a quiet moment when they were together at home.

They moved to London together in 2017, but they have not yet got married.
