Is Max single?

The hunk got married to American glamour model wife Katy, 29, in 2014 during a romantic ceremony in a barn in Rochester, Minnesota.

Max’s proposal took place in Paris, but Katy didn’t always find married life rosy as she felt she didn’t fit in with Scottish rugby WAGs.

When is Dancing On Ice on TV?

Dancing On Ice 2018 launched on January 7 at 6pm on ITV with a two-hour show, and continues every Sunday.

The show is said to have a “fresh look” as it rebrands after several years away from the screens.

Ice skating legend Jayne Torvill declared the show will need to up its game as reality TV has raised the bar over the past few years.
