Are Dancing on Ice’s Wes Nelson and Vanessa Bauer dating?
It has not yet been officially confirmed that the couple are dating.
However The Sun exclusively reported that Vanessa has begged Dancing On Ice bosses to let her move into the same hotel as Wes due to her “relentless pursuit” of him.
A source told The Sun Online: “The skaters stay in a different hotel than the celebrities and Vanessa asked if she could be moved to be closer to Wes.
“It’s annoyed the others as she’s not hiding her feelings for Wes.
“Backstage it’s very clear she fancies the pants off him.”
But the source added: “Wes doesn’t fancy her all, they will never be together.
Holly and Phil further stirred up the rumour mill by describing Wes and Vanessa as a “pair of romantic love birds” following their latest performance on Dancing On Ice.

What has Megan said about Wes and Vanessa?
Tensions were running high when Megan and Wes first took to the ice as Vanessa had recently split from her boyfriend of two years Louis Nathaniel.
Megan raged on Instagram: “Love that you decide to announce your breakup with your boyfriend on the night of your 1st performance with my boyfriend!
“You’ve never reached out to me once or invited me to watch you train, it pained you to introduce yourself to me last night, you didn’t even look me in the eye LOL.”
But she added that if they did get together “it would just be to further their careers.”

When did Megan and Wes split up?
On January 26, 2019 Megan announced her split from Wes with a statement on Instagram.
She used the term “conscious uncoupling” first coined by Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin.
She wrote: “It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate.
“We haven’t really conducted our relationship that privately and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner, love Megan and Wes.”
She added:”In all seriousness, I am so grateful and so blessed to have found Wes.
“I will always love and adore him and I am so lucky to call him my best friend.”
Wes also shared a pic of their hamster Jon Snow with the caption “Megan and Wes’ hamster realising it now comes from a broken home.”
Aside from Wes’ busy work schedule, a source close to Megan also claimed that their sex life had fizzled out which further contributed to the split.
