Dancing On Ice might normally be one of the more genteel shows on TV, but this year's it's been full of drama - mainly thanks to Love Island's Wes Nelson and Gemma Collins, who was booted off the show last weekend.

After Wes split from his Love Island girlfriend Megan Barton Hanson, he admitted that his rigorous ice skating training had played a part in the split - but asserted that he had loved her, contrary to what she'd been saying in interviews.

However, fans of the pair will know that it wasn't just the training that was a factor in their split - it was also the fact that Megan wasn't happy about Wes being paired with Vanessa Bauer, who recently split from her own boyfriend.

Early on in the 2019 competition, James was criticized for having an unfair advantage over the other contestants because of his extensive dancing experience.

Joe Swash, 2020

Joe Swash and Alex Murphy took home the 2020 trophy, despite Diversity's Peri Kiely being the bookies favourite since the beginning of the competition.However, it wasn't all plain sailing for Joe throughout the competition. Not only did he find himself at the bottom of the leaderboard in week three and have an ear infection, he also had to swap professional dance partners after Alexandra Schauman fell and injured herself during rehearsals, forcing her to drop out of the show.

Although Wes has repeatedly shot down any rumours of a romance between himself and his skating partner, show bosses and indeed the judges on the show seem to be priming the pair for romance.

Now, viewers have taken to Twitter to discuss whether Wes and Vanessa's song choice for tonight's show could be a 'dig' at Megan, as they'll be skating to 'Jealous' by Labrinth.

One person wrote, 'Wes and Vanessa - jealous 😂😂😂 how apt!!' as another added, 'Wes will be skating to “Jealous” this Sunday!! There’s some genius PR going on here 😉.'

Wes Nelson

Speaking on This Morning last week, Wes opened up about the split and the effect that the show had had on the relationship, "It’s more so the fact that it’s so sort of time consuming, and the fact that I’m away from home all the time. It makes it very difficult to plan things ahead.

"In a normal relationship you can plan ahead – you can say, 'we’ll go to this place here, we’ll have a date night this week'. With my schedule, it changes day-by-day, week-by-week. Every couple wants to spend quality time with each other and want something to look forward to.

"When you’re training ten hours a day, and you’re coming home, you want to know that your three hours then, or four hours then, is going to be good quality time."

Dancing On Ice continues tonight on ITV at 6pm.
