DANCING On Ice’s Vanessa Bauer has been seen heading to the studio after her and Joe-Warren Plant’s comeback is ruled out.
The professional skater, 24, was all smiles as she left her Blackpool apartment and got into a taxi to travel to London.
Vanessa and her skating partner, Emmerdale’s Joe-Warren Plant, were hoping to make a comeback to the ice rink but ITV bosses have since made a U-turn and told them it’s out of the question.
However, the brunette beauty let her fans know that she was still heading to the Dancing on Ice studio on her Instagram Stories.
Wearing a pink bra and high waist skirt, the German figure skater beamed for the photo styling her hair in soft curls and matching her make-up to her outfit.
She told her followers: “En route to @dancingonice”
The star was earlier seen lugging a huge monogrammed suitcase down the steps to a waiting taxi.
Wrapped up in white puffer coat, pink leggings and white sliders, Vanessa looked excited to be heading back to the studio after quarantining.
HOAR exclusively revealed that Vanessa is demanding answers from Dancing On Ice bosses after they U-turned on the decision to allow her to return to the show with Joe-Warren Plant.
The pair had been told they would be allowed to return after testing positive for coronavirus – following bosses being forced to rest the show for a week.
But Vanesa was told in an early morning call on Friday she wouldn’t be allowed back after all, leaving her feeling ‘angry and upset’.
Pals said she felt betrayed by ITV bosses and feared she and Joe had been ‘set up’ by some of her co-stars who were said to have complained about their possible comeback.
A friend said: “Vanessa was absolutely devastated when she was told she wasn’t going back to Dancing On Ice. She was close to tears when she was explaining it.
“She was training with Joe at a rink on Friday morning to be ready for their return when they got the call.
“After the initial shock wore off Vanessa couldn’t hide her upset.
She said she was confused as she was so sure they were going back.
“Vanessa wants a meeting to discuss what happened as it all feels a bit rushed. She said she felt she was being stitched up with Joe.
“She’s heard talk of favouritism and has been privy to hearsay about the other contestants moaning about it.
“It feels a bit like they’ve been stabbed in the back.”
Vanessa and former Emmerdale star Joe had been early favourites in the competition.
In a statement they said they were gutted after having to announce their departure a fortnight ago following positive coronavirus tests.
However after Dancing On Ice was taken off air for a week, insiders said assurances were made to them about returning because the other skaters on the show would have also missed a week in the competition.
