Dancing on ice has returned to screens tonight (Jan 17th) for its 13th season.
To the delight of fans, the ITV series – hosted by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby – is finally back with a cast of 12 new celebrities and their skating partners battling to become this year’s winners.
The professional ice dancer Vanessa Bauer is a familiar face.
This year Bauer is working with Emmerdale Actor Joe-Warren Plant, but fans of the series will recognize the talented skater from previous seasons.
Bauer is not only a professional ice skater, but also an acrobat and dancer.
The 24-year-old grew up in Berlin and spent much of her early career on the luxury cruise ship HMS Harmony of the Seas.
Bauer moved to London and initially joined the cast of Dancing on ice in January 2018. The skater was paired with former X factor Star Jake Quickenden and the duo won the series.
After her success, Bauer returned to the trade fair as a professional partner in 2019 Love islandWes Nelson. The pair made it to the season finale but were eventually defeated by reality TV star James Jordan and skater Alexandra Schauman.
Bauer took second place again last year when she worked with diversity star Perri Kiely. The duo went head to head EastEnders Actor Joe Swash and professional skater Alex Murphy in an exciting season finale.
Dancing on ice will be broadcast on Sunday evening at 7:00 p.m. on ITV.
