Artem Chigvintsev is having second thoughts about his relationship with Kara Tointon

Their on-screen chemistry was Strictly sizzling last year, but now it seems Kara Tointon and Artem Chigvintsev's relationship is under pressure.

First, Kara let rip with a jealous rant at Artem over his close friendship with dance partner Holly Valance.

Then he moved out for a couple of days last week after a row.

Now we can reveal that the dancer is having second thoughts about their relationship because he feels 28-year-old Kara's pressuring him to settle down.

Artem, 29, was overheard opening up about his problems in the show's backstage bar - just hours after Kara got upset over his raunchy routines with Holly, 28.

To make matters even worse, we can reveal that he was confiding in the very woman his girlfriend is insecure about: Holly.

Holly and Artem were engrossed in conversation,' says our insider.

Artem told Holly he feels Kara's pushing for marriage and a family, which he's not ready for.

'He admitted it's all getting a bit too much for him.'
