DANCING On Ice skaters are convinced Megan Barton Hanson failed to turn up for the live show because the couple had a blazing row over Vanessa Bauer.
Viewers were left puzzled last night when Megan didn’t show up to support her boyfriend days after she furiously hit out at his professional skating partner for “refusing to look her in the eye”.

The couple are the subject of backstage rumours that they had a furious row over Vanessa and that was the reason Megan failed to show for last night’s live show, something sources close to Wes and Megan have denied, insisting there was no row.
A backstage source exclusively told The Sun Online: “It’s the talk of backstage – everyone is gossiping about Wes and Megan.
“The rumour backstage is that they had a blazing row on Sunday about how close he is to Vanessa and that’s why she didn’t turn up.
“Wes has no idea that all the skaters and backstage staff are talking about him, but it’s the big gossip on set.

“Because of Megan’s comments about Vanessa, she’s not popular backstage and so any rumours about her and Wes tend to get around quite quickly.”
Last night Wes revealed Megan had an illness that meant she couldn’t attend the live shows.
Wes, who got the highest scores of the evening, revealed why Megan wasn’t there to watch him as he shared an old picture of them hugging.
He told fans: “Shattered now. Can’t wait to get back to Megan. She’s been so unwell today, make sure you send her a kind message.”
Instead Wes’ Love Island pals Adam Collard and Sam Bird were there to support him.

Megan had told fans she was suffering from a kidney infection, but managed to make it out for a date night with Wes yesterday after downing cranberry juice.
It was a drama-filled week for Wes after Megan slammed Vanessa for not introducing herself at last week’s show.
Megan also accused the pro of a calculated split from her boyfriend, and said she was hurt she had never been invited down to watch the pair train for the show.
But Vanessa seemed unconcerned as she continued to share pictures looking cosy with Wes as they prepared to skate.
