Joey Essex has seemingly been "struck by the Dancing On Ice curse" as he allegedly "moves on from Maura Higgins" after their passionate kiss.

The former TOWIE heartthrob has been getting close to his Dancing On Ice partner Vanessa Bauer, with the pair looking flirty while rehearsing ahead of the 2023 series launch.

Something that comes weeks after the Essex-born star locking lips with Love Island bombshell Maura Higgins while at the Pride of Britain Awards.

Joey, 32, and Vanessa, 26, have been cosying up together "incredibly quickly" while practicing at the ice rink.

A source has revealed to The Sun that the pair have been "super flirty", with the TOWIE star reportedly wanting to show Vanessa his £3million mansion.

The source explained that the pair are keeping their bond strictly professional, adding: "But it’s safe to say they are both super flirty".

"They are going to spend a lot of time together over the next few months due to rehearsals so it’s easy to see how romance could blossom," the source went on.

Daily Star has reached out to Joey's representative for comment.

This comes after things looked promising for Joey and Maura when they smooched up a storm in London at the Pride of Britain Awards before heading home together in a taxi.

Reports say that their friends insisted the duo did not hook up but they were said to be "excitedly planning their first date".

The pair were spotted sharing an intimate kiss while Irish babe Maura stunned in a yellow tulle dress, akin to Beauty and the Beast's Belle in the Disney classic.

Earlier this week Joey announced that he and Vanessa would be teaming up for the skating show that returns in January.

Taking to Instagram with a slew of sweet snaps he penned: "Ice to meet you."

Joey's former TOWIE co-star and pal Diags penned: "Corr don’t you two look Ice together."

Jake Quickenden penned: "Could have called it… Go get that trophy guys."

"And the next relationship to form due to dancing on ice.. Lol," speculated one fan.

While another cheekily said: "Relationship pending… cute couple."
