Dancing on Ice star Vanessa Bauer has now been linked to a hunky personal trainer amid previous swirling rumours that she had grown closer to her skate partner Joe Warren-Plant.
The professional dancer, 24, has seen many of her partners face relationship splits as they take to the ice – but has denied forming any romances with the celeb skaters.
She was previously partnered with Wes Nelson, with his girlfriend at the time Megan Barton Hanson admitting she found it tough watching them together, despite the pair insisting there was nothing romantic between them.
And this year she is being linked to a hunky skate partner after facing rumours that she had grown close with the Emmerdale star, according to The Sun.
The publication claims Vanessa has grown close to her skate partner Joe-Warren Plant following his split from his girlfriend.
But Vanessa is now dating hunky personal trainer Rory McCall and is said to have spent Christmas with him as they were snapped together in London.
Joe-Warren, 18, has recently moved out of the home he shared with his 24-year-old girlfriend Nicole Hadlow of three years to return to living with his mum.
A source claimed to The Sun that Nicole was not keen on Joe spending so much time training with Vanessa.
They 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."

The source continued: "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.
"It all just seems very awkward."
A source said at the time to the Sun: "Nicole felt sidelined and he's done little to put her mind at ease."
Vanessa joined the series in 2018 and has been surrounded by claims of love triangles.
Just weeks before she was due to start dancing with Wes Nelson, who was dating Megan at the time, Vanessa and her boyfriend Louis Nathaniel split.
Megan then dumped Wes following rumours that he had grown close to Vanessa.
Then in 2018 Vanessa reportedly grew close to her dance partner Jake Quickenden, who called off his engagement to Danielle Fogarty, but insists it had nothing to do with the brunette skater.
Daily Star has contacted reps for Vanessa and Joe for comment.
