Vanessa Putri Bauer is a professional ice skater, acrobat and dancer.

She spent her short career onboard luxury cruise liner, HMS Harmony Of The Seas, before moving to North London and joining the cast of Dancing on Ice in 2018.

Who are Vanessa's former Dancing on Ice partners?

Ice dancer Vanessa skated her way to victory in 2018 during her first ever ITV competition alongside celebrity partner and X Factor singer Jake Quickenden.

A year later, the German performer partnered up with Love Island's Wes Nelson and came second in the eleventh series of the show.

But despite rumours, romance between the TV pair never blossomed.
