Dancing On Ice’s Joey Essex ‘confirms’ romance with Vanessa Bauer after electrifying routine

Joey Essex appeared to confirm his romance with his Dancing On Ice partner Vanessa Bauer during Sunday's live show.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star, 32, performed an electrifying routine to You’re The One That I Want from Grease alongside professional skater Vanessa, 26, with the pair dressing up as main characters Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson.

Host Holly Willoughby was quick to pick up on Joey and Vanessa's chemistry, and wasted no time asking about their closeness following their performance.

"It's like you're a real life Sandy and Danny out there! Have you got something to tell us, you two?" the 41 year old asked.

Vanessa giggled as Joey responded: "Danny and Sandy are getting on pretty well. If you know what I mean," before winking at Holly.

Joey and Vanessa scored 29 out of 40 on Sunday's show, placing them in the middle of the leaderboard.

The judges praised Joey's performance and also commented on his and Vanessa's closeness, as rumours the pair are dating continue to swirl.

Ashley Banjo commented: “Whatever is going on it’s working. Joey I feel like you are one to watch… Even when you mess something up you make it really charming and entertaining."

Joey has continued to fuel romance rumours over recent weeks, and during a recent appearance on Good Morning Britain he was grille about his relationship with his skating partner, where he appeared to let slip some flirty details.

The former TOWIE star said: "I'm open, I'll answer, the truth is obviously… I'm single, Vanessa is single, you know. We go to the ice every day, it's cold, got to keep each other warm… do you know what I mean? So that's it really… yeah, it's all good."

To which host Susanna Reid pointed out: "Hold on, it sounds like you're not single and she's not single? It sounds like you're both together?"

With a blushing Joey replying: "No comment, can't confirm but we are both single, right now, we're taking it slowly, it's all good."

Susanna, 52, added: "Well congratulations, that's lovely!" with Joey adding: "I am not confirming nothing!"

He also confirmed he has a "soft spot" for the professional ice skater, adding: "Of course I do [have a soft spot], who wouldn't? Vanessa is lovely!"
