Dancing on Ice pro Vanessa Bauer hit by Strictly-style curse after splitting from boyfriend over concerns at her 'closeness' with Wes NelsonJanuary 13, 2019
The skater, 22, has fallen victim to the Strictly-style curse sweeping the ITV show by separating from circus performer Louis Nathaniel.
He had become concerned about her growing closeness to her skating partner Wes Nelson, 20, who is himself dating his Love Island co-star Megan Barton Hanson, 24.
Vanessa, who won the series last year with Jake Quickenden, 30, had been with Louis for two and a half years.
Their split comes days after fellow pro Alexandra Murphy, 30, who is partnered with signer Brian McFadden on the ITV series, split from medical student Marcus Stammen, 26.
Following Vanessa’s win in March 2018 she praised Louis for his support as well as Jake’s then-fiancée Danielle Fogarty, 27.
Alongside a post of her with Louis on Instagram, she wrote: “Jake and I are so blessed to have the most supportive partners in our lives.
“My boyfriend Louis came to every single show supporting Team Jake and Vanessa!
“Success is very rarely earned completely alone.
“Surround yourself with people that give you the chance to grow and get to where you want to be with so much love.”
He echoed her sentiments with a similar message, writing: “Words can’t describe how proud I am of this one!
“Put in SO much effort every single week and fully deserved to win. Up on cloud 9 right now.”
A spokeswoman for the star has been approached for comment.
