DANCING On Ice seems to be forcing a split between Emmerdale's Joe Plant and his girlfriend Nicole Hadlow.
The Sun can exclusively reveal Joe, 18, has been rowing with his girlfriend over the amount of hours of training he's putting in with his DOI partner, Vanessa Bauer.
A source told The Sun "Joe and Nicole have had a series of rows in recent weeks".
"Training for Dancing On Ice has put a strain on their relationship because of how hard Joe is having to work," the source said.
"He's been spending hours on the ice with Vanessa and the trainers and it has been tough on them.
"Nicole deleted all the recent snaps of them on Instagram recently and has been leaning on her family and friends."
The teen actor is hoping the upcoming Christmas break will help bring the pair back together.
"Joe is mad for Nicole and obviously wants to make this work but it has been tough," the source explained.
"They're more distant than ever because of the hours but with Christmas coming up friends hope they can spend some time together and get back to where they were before."
Joe's representative had "no comment" when approached about the young couple's relationship.
The new of their rows comes after Joe practiced with Vanessa outside in Blackpool after skating rinks were shut to stop the spread of coronavirus.
The soap star and German figure skater returned to training after Joe suffered a knee injury on last week and was forced to skip his last sessions on the ice before Thursday's national lockdown.
The Emmerdale star, who is best known for playing Jacob Gallagher in the ITV soap, used resistance bands to strengthen his hamstrings and glutes whilst Vanessa whizzed around him on her white rollerblades.
Vanessa joined Dancing On Ice in 2018, and won her first series with singer Jake Quickenden, 32.
She’s been runner-up twice since, with Diversity’s Perri Kiely, 24, and Love Island’s Wes Nelson, 22
In January 2019, Vanessa experienced the wrath of Wes' girlfriend at the time, Megan Barton Hanson.
