Vanessa Bauer showed fans she’s fighting fit for Dancing On Ice this Sunday by flashing her impressive abs during weekend rehearsals.
However, she didn’t manage to get through the video without making what appeared to be a sly dig at her partner Wes Nelson’s ex-girlfriend Megan Barton-Hanson.
The Love Island star’s professional partner showed off her washboard stomach in a tiny sports bra in a clip she posted on Instagram.
She captioned the video: "Finally find some time to hit the gym again."
Vanessa, 22, added an empowering message which appeared to contain a sly dig at Megan, who called her out in a public feud before the split.
The pro skater said: "“Shout out to women who put in major work.
"Who are up early as hell for school/work.
"Women who study, grind, who know sacrifice and discipline. Who persevere and prioritise self worth & love.
