Dancing On Ice’s Joe-Warren Plant reveals epic Movie Week routine he would have done with Vanessa Bauer before axe


DANCING on Ice star Joe-Warren Plant has revealed he and Vanessa Bauer would have done a Back To The Future themed spectacular on Movie Week.

The duo, once favourites to win the ITV show, had already planned their routine for film week before getting axed.

Joe Warren Plant revealed what his epic Movie Week routine would have been

The Emmerdale star was asked by a fan during an Instagram Q&A what film he would have chosen for movie week.

The 18-year-old star revealed that he had picked the 1985 science fiction classic Back to the Future.

Writing alongside a tearful looking snap: “We were supposed to be doing Back to the Future.”

The smash-hit franchise is about schoolkid Marty who travels back in time with his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown’s time machine. The pair have to get Marty’s high-school-aged parents to fall in love in order to return to the present.

However, Joe and Vanessa will not be able to perform their dream routine after they were told that they will not be reinstated after getting the boot after both testing positive for coronavirus. 

The shock decision has left the two stars gutted — after they thought bosses would U-turn and allow them to return despite it going against the show’s own hardened-up rules which stated a positive test meant immediate — and permanent — expulsion.

The move will please both previous contestants who have been forced out of the competition with injuries or coronavirus, and the remaining celebrities who will not have to take on the duo. 

Bosses had not extended the invite to any of the other celebrities who have had to withdraw from the contest due to injury or Covid.

Insiders say Emmerdale actor Joe and Vanessa, 24, were only in the mix to return because they only missed one week due to their Covid diagnoses.

Rufus Hound, 41, who had Covid, Billie Shepherd, 31, and Denise Van Outen, 46, who were both injured, all had at least two weeks off.

Jason Donovan, 52, also quit last month due to a back injury he could not shake off.

Reserves Olympian Amy Tinkler, 21, and comedian Matt Richardson, 29, both had to be called upon, but were then voted off.
