Dancing On Ice's Joe Warren-Plant says 'chemistry' with pro Vanessa Bauer led to split from girlfriend Nicole

DANCING On Ice's Joe Warren-Plant said "chemistry" with professional Vanessa Bauer led to his split from his girlfriend Nicole Hadlow.

The Emmerdale actor, 18, split from his girlfriend in December after reports he got close with the pro skater, 24.

Joe has admitted there was "chemistry" with his partner, which lead to people assuming there was something going on.

"With Dancing On Ice, it is about telling a story, to be engaged with the audience and the judges. So you have to have a certain level of chemistry between you and your partner," he told the Mail Online.

"Everybody has seen that we're getting on so well and automatically assumed that something is going on but there isn't and we're just dedicated to the show and trying to do as best as we possibly can.

"Vanessa has always been in the finals and she's very driven and competitive so we work well on that together.

"I'm competitive as well, we're just going to do our absolute best."

The Sun revealed the pair had separated after Nicole felt Joe wanted the show more than her.

The Jacob Gallagher actor told us that the show is good for him as he's using it to take his mind off the break up.

"Dancing on Ice has come at a good time for me physically and mentally," said Joe, ahead of the launch this Sunday.

"Relationships are hard to kind of deal with. It has helped to take my mind off of it slightly, having to focus and train all day every day.

"Even when you're not training and you're at home you've got to take the recovery aspect into terms.

"It's helped taking my mind off it, but things are still tough to be fair.

"I'm just focusing on getting the show started and then getting into the swing of things."

Joe had dated 24-year-old Nicole for three years.

He's since moved into his mum’s home in Blackpool after his tough training schedule with Vanessa put pressure on his relationship.
