Now Vanessa has shared a snap of Joey with her mum at the side of the rink.

She’d been in the audience to support her daughter and her love interest who have been dating since last year.

Vanessa captioned the pic: “This picture is just so bad but it’s the only one I got with Joey and my mum.”

The dancer was taken aback when Joey leaned in for a kiss while her mum watched on from the crowd.

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.

They scored 32.5 for their efforts, with Ashley Banjo commenting that the Towie star “continues to surprise him”.

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” inbetween working on their routines.

However, neither have publicly confirmed it as of yet.
