Dancing On Ice's first pairing revealed as Brendan Cole will be skating with series 10 winner Vanessa Bauer

DANCING On Ice's first pairing has been revealed with former Strictly star Brendan Cole matched with series 10 winner Vanessa Bauer.

Pro dancer Brendan, 47, has been tipped for skating glory thanks to his smooth moves, and Vanessa is certainly delighted to be partnered with him.

Announcing her celeb on Instagram, Vanessa said: "We’re both incredibly excited about this new partnership and can’t wait to go above and beyond to hopefully deliver some magic on the ice of you! 📺🥰✨.

"Let’s do this partner!!!"

Fans were delighted with the pairing and are backing them to go all the way.

One wrote: "Amazing news, good luck to both of you ❤️ can't wait to see you back again ❤️ Vanessa and Brendan for the win 🙌❤️."

Another said: "Looks like a winning combination to me."

A third posted: "this is going to be amazing."

The pressure is on Brendan to perform given each of Vanessa's previous four partners have been impressive on the ice.

She finished runner-up with Perri Kiely and Wes Nelson, respectively, while she went one better and won with Jake Quickenden in 2018.

This year wasn't as successful though as her time with Emmerdale's Joe Warren-Plant was cut short after they tested positive for coronavirus.

Former Strictly man, James Jordan, has also set the bar high for Brendan by winning when he competed in 2019.

Meanwhile the competitive Kiwi has already become embroiled in a beef with fellow celeb Ben Foden.

He allegedly snubbed the group WhatsApp group after Ben asked the celebs to share their numbers.
