Dancing on Ices Vanessa Bauer dons tiny crop top as she returns to rehearsals

Vanessa Bauer showcased her toned abs in a tiny crop top as she posed alongside Brendan Cole while they announced their return to the ice days before the launch of Dancing on Ice.

The 25-year-old professional skater rocked the glamorous two piece as she took to the ice with her former Strictly pro dancer after more than six weeks out of the rink.

She teamed the tiny white floral crop top with a pair of blush pink sports leggings and a pair of nude ice skates as she proudly beamed next to her celebrity partner.

Her 45-year-old partner opted for a more casual look on the ice as he donned a plain black T-shirt and a tight pair of dark wash denim jeans which he complimented with a pair of black ice skates.

The dynamic duo was filled pride as they beamed to the camera as they prepared their showstopping opening performance for the new series of the ITV competition.

She also attached a sneak preview of the pair’s upcoming routine as they glided along the ice and performed complex solo spins.

Doting dad Brendan also shared the sweet snap of the pair as they enjoyed their first time on the ice in the official ITV studios as they began to put the final touches on their first routine.

He confirmed: “We’re back! @vanessabauer_skates and I had our first session back on the #ice and in the new year today after nearly 6 weeks off! Good news … It felt awesome!!

“#Less than two weeks until we skate our first routine and the competition begins. So excited to be a part of this amazing show.

“Thank you for all of your messages over the past months. I'm inspired and pushing hard alongside the most incredible partner who pushes even harder! #let’s go!”

It comes after the pair were forced to take a break from training after the ballroom dancer suffered a painful groin injury while skating with his partner.

Back in November, the star took to his Instagram account to share the devastating news with his 88,000 followers online.

He told his loyal legion of fans: “An update … A week ago during a lift call the Fly Away my Adductor (groin) muscle went pop mid lift!

“I’m now out of action for a couple of weeks so unfortunately no ice time for me. Sorry @vanessabauer_skates. We'll make up the time, I promise!”

But this wasn’t the only injury the Strictly star suffered on the ice after he was rushed to hospital following a blow to the head during the first few weeks of training.

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Star, he revealed how he got distracted while skating and suffered a terrible fall as a consequence.

He explained: “I was on the ice and I took my mind off what I was doing for a second.

“I turned – and that’s the last thing I remember. I was taken to hospital and ended up with a concussion."
