“The age difference doesn’t come into it,” Jake Carter on his relationship with Karen Byrne


Jake Carter has opened up about his relationship with his Dancing with the Stars partner Karen Byrne.

Speculation has arisen about their relationship since it was announced that Karen split with her long-term partner.

She and Wojtek Potazkin were together for four years and had a dance school together.

However, the couple split a few months ago.

Jake has now spoken about their relationship, claiming that the pair are taking it slowly.

“While we have been out on a few dates together over the past few weeks, we’re not rushing into a full-on relationship,” he told the Sunday World.

“We’re both young and it’s a long life. It’s nothing too serious at the moment. We both get on really well and enjoy each other’s company, but we only get time together occasionally as we both lead busy lives.” he said.

Jake turned 20 this month, and although Karen is five years his senior, the singer insists the age gap is no issue.

“The age difference doesn’t come into it,” he said.

“At the end of the day we are both young people living our lives and we enjoy each other’s company. That’s the main thing.”

Karen’s ex-boyfriend released a statement this week revealing that he is no longer working under their joint business venture.

“With a very heavy heart – after beautiful 5 years full of love, loyalty, hard work and honesty I am left with no choice and I will no longer work under the umbrella of ‘Karen & Wojtek School of Dance’.” he said on social media.

“I want to thank all the teachers, dance parents and especially all the dancers that I will always love eternally for their trust in my knowledge, experience and love to the art and sport of dancing.

“I’m still fully available to all of you individually, my own School will open shortly.”
