Dancing on Ice star Mark Little is responding to reports that he sent explicit WhatsApp messages to another woman.

A spokesperson for Mark has issued a strong response following The Sun's publication of an interview with a woman who shared messages that she says are proof of carrying on a flirtatious online correspondence.

The purported messages were flirty in nature and former Neighbours actor Little was alleged to have sent an explicit photo.

In response, a spokesperson for Mark said: "The nature of these messages has been completely misconstrued and it is disappointing they are being used in an effort to mischaracterise Mark.”

Digital Spy has reached out to both ITV and Mark Little's personal representatives for additional response to these allegations.

Little is married to his producing partner Cath Farr, and the couple have two children.

These allegations arose mere days before Little and his professional dance partner Brianne Delcourt will face the first skate-off of the series on Dancing on Ice on Sunday night (January 13) on ITV.

The two fell into the danger zone last weekend when they finished at the bottom of the leaderboard after the first six couples had skated. The pair scored just 13.5 points out of a possible 40 from the four judges.

Little and his partner will skate for survival against the lowest-scoring couple from the second group of six celebrity contestants, who will first perform earlier in the night when Dancing on Ice airs on Sunday at 6pm.
