With just weeks to go until Dancing on Ice begins, Love Island’s Wes Nelson has put on an incredible display of confidence that shows why he is such a hot favourite to win.
The video posted on the 20-year-old’s Instagram story reveals that Wes is a long way past trying to stay upright on the ice and confirms why his professional ice skating partner Vanessa Bauer has said that he will go a long way into the competition.
Spinning Vanessa around, she lifts her legs off the floor as Wes gathers momentum while keeping it all under control.
There will be some inner pleasure from the pro skater as she was getting worried that Wes was not focusing enough on training.

The Love Island star had been spending time on the beach in Mauritius, with girlfriend Megan Barton Hanson and there was concern that he would get too far behind with his training, that it could affect his ability to win the ITV show.
Those fears will be allayed following the posting of this video and the 1.6 million followers of Wes will not fail to be impressed by his mastery of the ice.
As to show that his spinning of Vanessa was not a fluke, Wes then breaks off to go into a controlled spin himself.

This showing off of his skill seems to justify the bookies making him the clear favourite to win the show.
Ladbrokes have him miles ahead of his nearest rival, former Strictly dancer James Jordan and Pussycat Doll, Melody Thornton and it would be a brave person to bet against Wes.
Not so convincing in training, according to bookies, is former Towie star Gemma Collins, who is the rank outsider to grab a shock win.
