DANCING On Ice's Nile Wilson appears to have 'accidentally revealed' he's been paired with pro skater Vanessa Bauer for the upcoming series.
The gymnast, 26, began following Vanessa, 26, on Instagram over the weekend. The duo are the only celebrity and professional to be pals with each other on the social media platform.
The 2023 line-up recently met for the first time at London's Alexandra Palace before heading off to different training rinks around the country.
Patsy Palmer is the furthest afield having returned to America to practice until show time in the New Year.
Earlier this year Vanessa admitted she was shocked to be partnered with previous partner Brendan Cole – as he was 20 years older and she was used to skating with young men.
Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, Berlin-born Vanessa reveals that fiery former Strictly star Brendan met his match in her.

She said: “The producers really surprised me with the partnership because there is a 20-year age gap.
“I didn’t expect to be with Brendan when obviously there were young guys, like I was partnered with in previous years. I was worried at first that we wouldn’t bond, but because we’re both performers and I’m a mature 25-year-old, I’m comfortable.
“Brendan is like a kid at heart — it shows on the ice as well, as he throws himself at everything I’m showing him and he doesn’t hesitate to jump.
“He falls and gets up and it amazes me how his 45-year-old body can handle so much strain. He says all the time that he has toned up.

“You can see it as well — he has lost a lot of weight.
“I’ve heard these rumours about him being fiery, but I am a feisty person, too — so he met his match.
“I know when I have to take the lead and take over the partnership and he very much respects that.
“We’ve been a perfect partnership. He wants to get his ballroom experience on to the ice, but as the ice-skating pro I have to tell him that the things he wants to do are not possible and he gets upset, but we never fight.”
Vanessa was previously partnered with TV hunks Jake Quickenden, Wes Nelson and Emmerdale’s Joe-Warren Plant, who all suffered break-ups after hitting the rink with her.
