Dancing on Ice star Ricky Hatton has shared a series of selfies with Claire Sweeney amid rumours they are dating.

The former boxer and Coronation Street star both appeared on Dancing on Ice this year, though speculation has grown in recent weeks that they two have developed a romantic spark, with reports claiming they have been on dates.

While nothing has been officially confirmed, Ricky has fuelled speculation further after posting a birthday tribute to Claire today (April 17) with two selfies.

"Happy birthday Claire," he captioned the post. "Have the best day gorgeous. Lots of love. Ricky. xxx @claire.sweeney."

The rumours come after Claire recently admitted that she was putting dating on hold and is waiting for the right person.

"I'm not dating at the moment, no," she told The Mirror's Invite Only podcast. "I mean, I'm so fulfilled and it's so exciting what I'm doing.

"I get all the love I want off my son (nine-year-old Jaxon), all the attention I want at work, and I'm financially secure. So at the moment, I'm not searching. I've always been very self-sufficient. I'm not someone who needs to have a boyfriend."

The recent series of Dancing on Ice saw Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas and dance partner Amani Fancy walk away as winners.

Beforehand, Olympian Greg Rutherford was forced to withdraw from the final after sustaining an injury, the star later confirming he gave himself "a C-section" after sliding on the ice. He has since shared a picture of his surgery scar.

Dancing on Ice is streaming on ITVX.
