DANCING On Ice star Joey Essex and partner Vanessa Bauer enjoyed a cuddle as they took a break from training for the ITV show final.
The pair have been filling their social media pages with romantic snaps through the series – but have, as yet, failed to address their relationship status.
Yet the duo were certainly looking close in their latest sweet snap, which saw them snug on a sofa.
They nuzzled their heads close to each other as ex TOWIE star Joey, wearing a grey hoodie, let out a cheer.
Vanessa couldn’t be missed in a bright orange jumper with a grey cuff.
She punched the air as she eagerly anticipated the upcoming Dancing On Ice 2023 final.
Last Sunday, all four judges chose to save Joey, who soared into the final alongside Nile and The Vivienne.
The ITV episode was an emotional one, as each dancer paid tribute to a cause close to their hearts.
Joey’s skate saw him remember his late mother as he broke down before his stunning semi-final skate.
Meanwhile, sparking relationship rumours, Joey and Vanessa shocked fans by sharing a kiss on live TV after their dance routine.
They were performing in Dancing On Ice’s movie week to High School Musical’s Breaking Free dressed as lead characters Troy and Gabrielle.
Joey got carried away and went in for a full-on smooch with professional skater Vanessa as the routine came to a close.
The kiss clearly shocked Vanessa, who laughed before joining Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby for the judges scores.
When Phillip brought it up, Joey declared the moment as Vanessa’s “first kiss on TV ever”, with Vanessa remaining silent.
Joey and Vanessa have been fanning rumours of a relationship off the ice ever since they were first partnered together.
Becoming inseparable, both have been seen on a string of “dates” in between working on their routines.
However, neither have publicly confirmed it as of yet.
