Dancing On Ice's Vanessa Bauer has thinly veiled dig at Wes Nelson's ex Megan Barton Hanson

The pro skater, 22, took to Instagram and said she was moved to "tears" from the support she's received since being thrust into the Love Island couple's bitter break-up.

She wrote in a post to fans on Instagram: "Hey beautiful people. I'm so sorry but I can't find the time to respond to all the DMs.

"I read through them and they mean the world to me. I appreciate all the love so much and will over time do my best to respond ! Some of your stories bring tears to my eyes and all your support is crazy and amazing"

She followed her poignant message with a screen grab of a quote from Bruce Lee that said: "You will continue to suffer if you have an emotion reaction to everything is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic.

"If words control you that mean everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass."

Jealous Megan railed at her on Instagram: “Love that you decide to announce your break-up with your boyfriend on the night of your 1st performance with my boyfriend!

“Hope the tactical break-up got you the headlines you wanted babe.”

Rows escalated, Wes went into a hotel and Megan declared online on January 26 that it was all over.

But The Sun on Sunday can reveal Vanessa, 22, had secretly parted from circus performer boyfriend Louis Nathaniel weeks before her own announcement — when she had known Wes for just a few days.

Mum Yayun, 48, said Vanessa split from Louis, her boyfriend of three years, after he took a job on a cruise ship.

It would mean him being away from their home in Hemel Hempstead, Herts, for six months.

She said: “They agreed it was best to separate. But they are still friends. All of these allegations flying round are completely ridiculous.”

German Vanessa’s dad Marco, 59, said: “Vanessa is trying to rise above the situation, ignore the jibes and carry on skating.

"She would never dump a boyfriend to get attention. That’s not the kind of girl she is.

“The truth is she separated from Louis in December. We were sad about it because we liked him a lot.

“Vanessa is not seeing her ice skating partner. Her only focus is on being at her best and trying to win this competition.”

Marco added: “Ice skating is ­Vanessa’s passion and once she sets her mind on something, nothing can stop her.

“Wes obviously has potential and my daughter is enjoying dancing with him. She believes she can go on to win the tournament. That’s it.”

The couple spoke at their home in Berlin — a tiny rented flat in the gritty district of Spandau — where they are surrounded by the glittering prizes Vanessa has won.
