DANCING on Ice’s Vanessa Bauer has been spotted leaving training with Joe-Warren Plant after her secret love triangle was exposed.
Vanessa, 24, and 18-year-old Joe-Warren were seen leaving rehearsals for the ITV ice skating competition and getting into a car together.
The pair were heading off after training at Blackpool's Arena ice rink, ahead of the show's return next week.
The stunning pro skater was recently revealed to be dating a hunky personal trainer – just as it's said she'd also grown close to her soap actor dance partner, prompting the end of his relationship.
German Vanessa, who has been caught up in two Dancing on Ice love splits in the past two years, spent Christmas with fitness fan Rory McCall.
The pair were pictured enjoying time together around London over the festive break.
It is likely to upset Emmerdale star Joe-Warren, who has moved out the home he shared with girlfriend of three years Nicole Hadlow, 24, to return to his mum’s.
Nicole has hinted online that it is due to his growing attachment to Vanessa — prompting fears the ITV show’s “curse” may have struck before the latest series has even started.
There are now fears the love triangle could spark tensions behind the scenes on this year’s competition.
A source said: “Obviously it’s only a few weeks ago that Joe-Warren was splitting up from his girlfriend and everyone was talking about his closeness to Vanessa — and now she’s quietly meeting a new guy.
“Joe has been staying at his mum’s place in Blackpool after moving out but of course he still has training commitments because the show will be starting very soon.
“Vanessa and Joe are playing down suggestions of romance, but his girlfriend was clearly uncomfortable with their relationship and now she’s already dating someone else in secret. It all just seems very awkward.”
Vanessa has been single since she split from cruise ship dancer Louis Nathaniel, 29, last January, just weeks before appearing on the ice with Love Island star Wes Nelson, 22.
Wes’s girlfriend — fellow Love Island star Megan Barton Hanson, 24 — dumped him amid rumours of his closeness to skater Vanessa.
In 2018, singer Jake Quickenden, 32, called off his engagement to fashion entrepreneur Danielle Fogarty, 26, after skating with Vanessa but he insisted she was not to blame.
The series, which is hosted once again by Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, returns to screens on Sunday, January 17.
