Who is Vanessa Bauer?
Vanessa Putri Bauer is a 24-year-old German dancer, acrobat and ice skater.
She has performed on an ice rink on board one of the biggest luxury cruise ships in the world, HMS Harmony Of The Seas.
As a result, she declares “life is a holiday” – and for her, it literally is.
But maintaining a body that’s strong and agile enough to dance on the ice is no cake walk.
She regularly posts pictures of her workouts on Instagram and has an incredibly muscular figure.
Vanessa insists she doesn’t need supplements to make herself strong, just hard work and healthy food.
In July 2017 Vanessa left her job on the cruise ship and moved to north London.
She has been practising her skating skills at Planet Ice in Hemel Hempstead.
Vanessa was paired with Jake Quickenden for the 2018 series of the show and the duo went on to be crowned the winner娛樂城體驗s.
What was Vanessa’s feud with Megan Barton Hanson and did she date Wes Nelson?
In January 2019, Vanessa experienced the wrath of Wes Nelson’s girlfriend at the time, Megan Barton Hanson.
The Love Island star blasted the pro ice skater for her “tactical break up” before her first show skate with Wes.
Vanessa exclusively told The Sun Online she wanted to put an end to their feud once and for all by meeting Megan face to face.
The Sun on Sunday reported that Wes and Vanessa had a brief fling in the early stages of the competition.
But Wes later decided they were better off as friends and their brief tryst fizzled out.
The couple went on to become runners up to James Jordan and Alexandra Schauman.
She was runner up again in 2020 with partner Perri Kiely.
Why did Vanessa split with her boyfriend?
Vanessa Bauer was in a relationship with poi expert and circus performer Louis Natha娛樂城返水niel for two-and-a-half years.
The skater announced that she and circus performer Louis had gone their separate ways – and it came as a surprise to their pals and everyone on the ITV show.
Sources told The Sun Louis had become concerned about Vanessa’s growing closeness to Wes.
Louis and Vanessa had travelled around the world together and regularly posted gushing Instagram messages about each other.
It looks like they met while both performing on cruise ships.
The Sun exclusively revealed on January 5, 2021, that Vanessa is now dating a hunky personal trainer.
But she is also said to have grown close to her soap actor dance partner Joe-Warren Plant,
