Dancing On Ice pro Vanessa Bauer has been linked to a hunky personal trainer after the pair were spotted enjoying time together in London over Christmas.
The German skating pro spent Christmas with Rory, according to The Sun, with a source telling the publication: “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.”
Emmerdale actor Joe-Warren Plant is Vanessa’s current Dancing On Ice partner, with the pair set to take to the ice when the programme begins on Sunday 17 January.

And while training for the show, rumours arose about a romance sparking up between Joe and Vanessa, after the 18 year old actor split from his girlfriend of three years Nicole Hadlow, 24.
A source told The Sun: “They’ve been rowing a lot so decided earlier this month it was best Joe move out. It wasn’t what he wanted… but his dedication to the show has put their romance under pressure.”
This isn’t the first time rumours have emerged over Vanessa and one of her celebrity dance partners.
Megan hit out at Vanessa on social media saying: “Love that you decide to announce your break-up with your boyfriend on the night of your first performance with my boyfriend.
“You’ve never reached out to me once or invited me to watch you train, it pained you to introduce yourself to me last night, you didn’t even look me in the eye LOL.”
Vanessa was quick to dismiss the allegations, and said that the rumours were all “lies.”
Another split happened after Vanessa won the show with X Factor star Jake Quickenden and he parted ways with his fiancée of seven months Danielle Fogarty weeks after their win.
Despite the split not being directly linked to Vanessa, Jake admitted that he could understand how the show would lead to romantic split, saying to The Sun: “They (producers) always put you with maybe who you can… maybe you’ll get on, but most people are coupled up and nobody wants to ruin a relationship.
“But you can see why it might happen, you spend a lot of time with people, dancing and stuff.”
Who has Vanessa Bauer dated?
Vanessa was dating cruise ship dancer Louis Nathaniel however they ended their romance after Louis reportedly “couldn’t trust her.”
Louis continued to say that they “didn’t want to end up cheating on each other” so went their separate ways when he moved to Miami in 2019.
Louis told The Sun On Sunday: “When I’m in the same country I trust her, but being in a different country I wasn’t sure how it was going to pan out.
“We didn’t ever want to end up cheating on each other so we thought it was better to end it.”
Rory is the reported to be Vanessa’s new flame, with the pair first firing up the rumour mill back in 2019.
The pair were pictured enjoying trips abroad and glamorous events, but one of their last sightings together came in October 2019, until recent pictures of them emerged this month.
