VANESSA BAUER has addressed claims she had a fling with Dancing on Ice partner Wes Nelson.
It was claimed Wes Nelson hooked up with Dancing on Ice partner Vanessa Bauer during the early stages of the competition.
However, Vanessa has denied the rumours online.
The 22-year-old took to her Instagram page to say that the speculation about her and the Love Island hunk was a lie.
ITV also said: “This is completely untrue. Wes and Vanessa have nothing more than a professional relationship.
“Wes and Vanessa were instantly attracted to each other”
It was claimed by The Sun that Wes and Vanessa had a fling.
However, he then decided he was better off as friends with her.
An insider told the publication: “They had a thing at the start of the competition.
“Wes and Vanessa were instantly attracted to each other, you only had to be in the same room as them for a minute to see sparks were flying.”
The source continued telling The Sun: “But it wasn’t long before Wes decided he would rather stay single. He is the man of the moment and fast becoming a household name.
“Girls are queuing up to knock on his door. The last thing he needs is a serious relationship. Vanessa has come to accept it.”
The insider said things have been “awkward” between the pair, but that they are concentrating on the competition and hoping to win the show.
There is no suggestion that the incident occurred before Wes split with ex Megan Barton Hanson, which happened after the first live Dancing on Ice show.
Megan, 25, hit out at Vanessa on Instagram before that, saying she was distrustful of the stunning brunette. However, she later apologised.
Daily Star Online has contacted a representative for Wes.
The claims come as an insider also told Daily Star Sunday that Wes, 20, has been messaging fellow Love Island star Amber Davies.
It’s claimed Megan thought her and Wes were going to get back together as he celebrated her birthday with her.
The pair also slept together, according to reports.
But just days later, Megan was said to have been told that Wes was “sending rude messages” to 9-5 The Musical star Amber.
A friend of Megan’s told Daily Star Sunday: “Megan’s not bitter about this but she said, ‘I’m sick of Wes looking like the golden boy’ when basically he’s acted like a selfish f***boy.
