Covid: Dancing On Ice stars ‘livid as Vanessa Bauer lives with her boyfriend’

Dancing On Ice kicked off with a bang on Sunday night as six of the twelve hopeful celebrity contestants showcased their talents on the rink.

But stars of the ITV skating competition are said to be livid as Vanessa Bauer has continued living with her boyfriend Rory McCall as the latest series is underway.

Some pro skaters have reportedly accused the show’s bosses of endangering their Covid-19 bubble by letting the dancer, 24, stay with her personal trainer beau.

It is claimed that other Dancing On Ice stars have been ordered to separate from their families to stop the spread of coronavirus amid strict safety rules.

A source told The Sun: ‘Many of us are livid, we have given up our families for months, and she’s carrying on as normal because everyone bangs on about how sexy she is.

‘It feels like one rule for some and another for the rest of us.’

While another insider added: ‘We are being ultra-cautious about everything because we all want the series to be safe, but if Vanessa is living with her boyfriend that’s an obvious issue.’

But a production source told the publication that the show’s rules only require couples who are both contracted to the series to be separates for the series. 

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Vanessa and Dancing On Ice for comment.

ITV reassured fans earlier this month that the show would be back as planned despite the third national lockdown, however with new precautions including perspex dividers between the judges and no audience.

The news came amid claims the celebs and their professional skating partners were concerned about coronavirus hitting the show and it being cancelled. 

For the series, the judging panel are sitting far apart, keeping in line with social distancing measures, and perspex panels are being placed between them.

And for the first time in its history, the studio at Bovingdon Airfield in Hertfordshire does not have an audience, a move mirroring that of Strictly Come Dancing.

The skating celebrities are also watching each other perform from socially-distanced tables to keep everyone safe from COVID-19.

Vanessa and her celebrity partner Joe-Warren Plant had an interesting start to the competition after Emmerdale actor, 18, fell on the ice during Sunday’s launch show.

Although decking it, Joe managed to get back up with a smile on his face and continue the routine alongside professional partner.

However this did hit him in the scores, with Ashley declaring he takes ‘an entire point off’ if there’s a fall in the routine.

Chris added: ‘You gave a performance, even though there was a fall, there’s intricacy in the footwork and you looked comfortable on the ice.’

Before the show kicked off, Joe recently weighed in on claims he has a romantic connection with Vanessa, admitting they do have ‘chemistry’.

Joe told MailOnline him and Vanessa ‘get on so well’ and he’s keen to impress the competitive dancer by reaching the Dancing On Ice final.

He said: ‘With Dancing On Ice, it is about telling a story, to be engaged with the audience and the judges. So, you have to have a certain level of chemistry between you and your partner.

‘Everybody has seen that we’re getting on so well and automatically assumed that something is going on but there isn’t and we’re just dedicated to the show and trying to do as best as we possibly can.

Connection: Before the show kicked off, Joe recently weighed in on claims he has a romantic connection with his pro partner Vanessa Bauer, admitting they do have ‘chemistry’ 

‘Vanessa has always been in the finals and she’s very driven and competitive so we work well on that together, I’m competitive as well, we’re just going to do our absolute best.’

It was claimed that Joe’s girlfriend Nicole Hadlow dumped him after they rowed over the amount of hours he dedicated to rehearsals of the ITV show with Vanessa.

But his ex-girlfriend has since hinted that they may have rekindled their romance after sharing a cryptic Instagram post about ‘forgiveness’ earlier this month.

Joe admitted he’s still not over his breakup, though being part of the series has given him the chance to focus his mind on the competition, instead of his love life.  

He explained: ‘Dancing On Ice has come at a good time for me both physically and mentally but relationships are hard to deal with it and it has helped take my mind off it slightly, having to focus and train all day, every day.

Break up: It was claimed that Joe’s girlfriend Nicole Hadlow dumped him after they rowed over the amount of hours he dedicated to rehearsals of the ITV show with Vanessa 

‘Even when you’re not training and you’re at home you have to take the recovery aspect into terms, so it has helped take my mind off it but things are still tough to be fair.’ 

Since joining the show in 2017, Vanessa has been linked to three of her four dance partners, including Jake Quickenden, 32, and Love Island’s Wes Nelson, 22, who she also reached the final of the competition with. 

But Vanessa previously told The Sun that she found it ‘irritating’ that people only seemed to be focused on the ‘romance’ and not her hard work as a dancer on the show.

Vanessa insisted that she is a ‘professional’ and never enquires about the romantic lives of her celebrity dance partners.  

She told The Sun: ‘As far as I’m concerned when my partners have split from their girlfriends I doubt it’s got anything to do with me.’

Last week, Joe’s ex-girlfriend Nicole seems to have hinted that they may have rekindled their romance after sharing a cryptic Instagram post on Thursday.

Nicole took to her Instagram stories to share a mysterious message about ‘learning to forgive’ and ‘loving with all your heart’ with her 17,000 followers. 

The post also hinted at not staying ‘mad for too long’, sparking rumours that she has reunited with the soap opera star. 

She penned: ‘We don’t know what tomorrow will bring. So don’t stay mad for too long. Learn to forgive and love with all your heart. Don’t worry about the people who don’t like you. Enjoy the ones who love you.’ 

MailOnline contacted Joe’s representatives for comment at the time.

Talking about working with Mel, 45, for the first time after he was recommended to her by Rio Ferdinand, she said: ‘To be honest, well, that’s sort of when I came to meeting Mel and probably he saved me in many ways.

‘I was a skinny, anxious wreck, traumatised because of lots of reasons around the divorce.’

Reflecting on the difficult period, Kirsty added: ‘It’s much more complex than people know. There are things you keep private. And I think that Mel got to know me and what I’d been through and was amazing for me.’

The presenter also revealed how she stays motivated and balances her personal training sessions around her two sons.

‘Traumatised’: Talking about her divorce to Dancing On Ice star Graham Bell on Decathlon’s The Power Of Ten podcast, Kirsty admitted that she was ‘traumatised’ after the ‘complex’ split  

She said: ‘Actually, what I do is I schedule my week, so I plan it all. So, I really try and make sure that I’ve got this sort of timetable of training around my work and the kids’ activities and stuff.

‘And that makes me feel better because I know I look at that and go, yeah, you’re already committing, aren’t you I think.’

Kirsty added that she gets ‘guilt’ and feels ‘out of control’ when she can’t fit in her busy exercise schedule.

She said: ‘Well, I think it’s like anyone and anyone’s life. If you’ve got really busy times and you’re up to your eye for whatever reason, or you’ve got stuff going on emotionally or your kids, there’s something, I think it’s that commitment, isn’t it?

‘And not letting that go because I do keep it all going. And I schedule my sessions.’

‘Saving her’: Kirsty credited her ‘amazing’ personal trainer and retired professional rugby player, Mel Deane – pictured right, for ‘saving’ her during the difficult time – he was recommended to her by Rio Ferdinand (pictured left)  

Kirsty added: ‘I’m very committed, If I feel like when one week is busier, I get this guilt thing… I know there’s nothing you can do because we can’t all have it all our own way all the time, but I hate that feeling.

‘It makes me feel out of control. That’s the hardest thing about being committed.’

The star spoke about the trauma of their ‘devastating’ break-up, admitting that it left her ‘grieving and mourning.’

Speaking to The Sun, the star outlined the heartbreaking effect that her divorce had on her, revealing that it left her ‘devastated’ and struggling to eat.

Kirsty, who was married to Paul between 2010 and 2015, told the publication: ‘The divorce was a very difficult period. I found it devastating.

Sad: The model told the Outspoken Beauty podcast over the summer that amid the divorce, she was left ‘saddened’ for her two sons Oscar and Jude, whom she shares with Paul 

‘I was grieving and mourning. I think I had post traumatic stress disorder. I was skinny, not eating and wanting to black it all out. It was painful.’

The glamorous couple met in 1999 shortly after Paul had won his first cap for England and Kirsty was made the new face of Sky Sports News.

They married in 2010 in a £50,000 ceremony in Spain but their relationship started to wobble the following year after Paul’s retirement from rugby due to injury.

He went into a depression and did not know what to do with himself, a situation worsened by the fact he had failed to come to terms with his father’s death in 2004.
