Openly Gay Robin Cousins Is Married With Husband & No One Knows - Why?
Openly gay figure-skater Robin Cousins has been married to his husband for quite some time now. But he prefers to keep his personal life out of the spotlight and goes to great extents to hide the identity of his partner. Well, let's find out how much he has let people in on his mystery partner.
Robin Cousins is entirely known as a former British competitive figure skater who appears as the head judge on ITV’s Dancing on Ice. He is also known by many as the 1980 Olympic champion and a three-time World medalist.

It was in 1983 when Robin founded his own ice skating performance company that toured the world with professional ice shows Ice Majesty and Electric Ice.
Robin Cousins Fell In Love With Dancing On Ice At Young Age
Born on 17 August 1957, Robin Cousins was raised alongside two older brothers Martin and Nick. The first time he ever graced his feet on the ice was at the age of nine at Westover Road Ice Rink during a holiday in Bournemouth. He enjoyed the experience and requested lessons for Christmas eighteen months later.
Robin, age 61, trained in ice dancing at the same time as singles as a young skater and his first coach was a dancer named Ms. Pamela Davies. He even left school to focus on figure skating at the age of sixteen.
And it wasn’t long before the skater won his first national title at the ‘novice’ level at the age of twelve in 1969. By the age of fourteen, Robin was already Britain’s junior champion, and he soon made his international debut.
After representing the UK as an amateur figure skater for eight long years, he turned professional in 1980 and went to win the World Professional Men’s Figure Skating Championships, twice. Let’s not forget to mention that Robin was a World Professional singles medalist four times in 1986, 1990, 1991 and 1992.
Turning professional was a step nearer to star in several professional skating shows like Holiday on Ice and Ice Capades. Oh, and he also hit both the longest backflip and the longest axel jump on figure skates in the Guinness Book of World Records in 1983.
And being a skater takes a lot of fortune from the training to the costumes, which is returned from the profession itself. The appeal of the sport brings a massive amount of wealth to the athletes, so there’s no doubt that Robin carries a net worth of millions.
