Dancing on Ice’s Vanessa Bauer and Joe Warren-Plant arrive for training

She has reportedly slammed claims that she is the reason behind her skating partner’s break-up with his girlfriend Nicole Hadlow.

And Vanessa Bauer looked sombre as she got out of a car and headed to Dancing On Ice training with Joe-Warren Plant in Blackpool on Friday morning.

The figure skater, 24, bundled up from the chilly autumnal weather in a pale pink puffer jacket and fuchsia leggings.

She completed her training attire with a teddy bear jumper and brown walking boots as she arrived for the last day of training before breaking up for Christmas.

Vanessa let her natural beauty shine through with a low-coverage make-up palette and styled her dark tresses in a straight fashion.

While the Emmerdale actor, 18, donned black sports tights and grey shorts, adding some colour to his ensemble with a bright yellow T-shirt and vibrant red trainers.

He kept warm with a black zip-up jacket and slung a bag over his shoulder as the skating duo kept their distance while heading to training.

Their latest outing comes after Joe split with his girlfriend Nicole, 24, amid claims she was growing concerned he was more committed to the show than to her.

But Vanessa, who has been linked to a previous celebrity partner’s break-up, is apparently furious that she is being blamed again. 

A source said: ‘Vanessa is hugely embarrassed by this. She’s insisted she has nothing to do with Joe and Nicole breaking up.

‘Vanessa has been accused of being at the centre of other partners’ splits but she says it is purely coincidence. 

‘She doesn’t want to be seen as a man-eater. She gets on well with Joe.

‘She’s been putting in long hours training and they’ve been spending a lot of time together but it’s nothing more than work, as far as she’s concerned.’

According to The Sun, Joe’s now ex-girlfriend, model Nicole, has told friends she felt he wanted the show more than her. 

An onlooker told the publication: ‘They had two cars waiting but slipped into one and headed back to the hotel.

‘They wore masks but were chatting animatedly and clearly getting on like a house on fire.’

Joe and Vanessa were staying at the De Vere Latimer Estate Hotel in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, ahead of the show’s launch.

The actor had been dating Nicole for the last three years but was recently reported to have moved back to his mother’s home in Blackpool.

An insider said: ‘Nicole felt sidelined and he’s done little to put her mind at ease.’ 

It comes after insiders alleged that lash technician Nicole was not impressed with the time Joe was spending training and deleted snaps of the pair from Instagram.

A source told The Sun: ‘Joe and Nicole have had a series of rows in recent weeks…

‘Nicole deleted all the recent snaps of them on Instagram recently and has been leaning on her family and friends.’

The actor, who is best known for his role as Jacob Gallagher in the ITV soap, and Vanessa have been sharing regular updates from their time on the rink.

Sharing an array of videos and snaps from their fun-filled rehearsals recently, Joe revealed they had been given their first routine, which was possibly to the tune of Justin Bieber’s Yummy.

The hint came from a slew of the videos shared by both of the dancing duo, with the hit track playing in the back while they zipped around.
