Dancing On Ice star ‘highly doubts’ Joey Essex and Vanessa Bauer romance is real

Dancing On Ice star Wes Nelson has shared his thoughts on Joey Essex and Vanessa Bauer's new 'romance'.

Singer-songwriter Wes starred on the show in 2019 and was partnered up with Vanessa who he claimed is very "professional".

However, Wes also had some similar whispers that circulated about him and his skating partner at the time.

When asked if he's heard about the new skating couple's romance rumours, Wes exclusively said during a Facebook Live chat: "Of course, when is there ever not?

"I feel like they do it on purpose, they know what they're doing.

"It is what it is, there was never anything going on with me and Vanessa like that. Ever.

"Even now, I could say it and be truthful. It was so funny at the time and at one point they even said we kissed on the ice. Do you really think with my missus there that I'd be necking on with her?"

During his Dancing On Ice stint, Wes was still with his Love Island co-star Megan Barton-Hanson, though things came to an abrupt end during his time on the show.

Wes continued: "It is funny and it is a good story but at the same time it's just not true, is it?

"I know on Strictly I've seen some things and even on Dancing On Ice there have been some stories in the past where things like that have happened, but I'm not here to confirm or deny what has happened with them.

"But all I know is Vanessa is big on professionality and being a professional and I highly doubt she is in it."

When asked if the show was to blame for his break up, Wes answered: "Na, it was for completely different reasons.

"It obviously didn't help and caused a couple of arguments here and there, but they were only minor arguments, it was never anything that was going to be relationship ending."

However, despite what Wes said, Joey seemed to fuel the fire himself during a recent episode of Good Morning Britain.

Pressed by GMB hosts Susanna Reid and Ed Balls, the TOWIE star said he couldn't confirm anything but made some cheeky quips.

Joey said: "The truth is, I'm single, Vanessa's single, you know?

"We go to the ice everyday, it's cold, do you know what I mean? We've got to keep each other warm!

"But yeah it's all good."

However, Susanna said it sounded like the pair were an item.

Joey then confessed: "We are taking it slow, it's all good."
