‘They’re both super flirty’: Joey Essex ‘gets closer to Dancing On Ice skating partner Vanessa Bauer’…days after he was spotted kissing Maura Higgins

Joey Essex reportedly got closer to his Dancing On Ice pro skating partner Vanessa Bauer during rehearsals.

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Joey, 32, and figure skater Vanessa, 26, are said to have flirted throughout their collaboration.

Reality star Joey is now said to be planning to invite Vanessa to his £3million Essex mansion, although she was spotted kissing the former Love Island star , Maura Higgins, last week.

Flirting fun: Joey Essex, 32, reportedly got close to his Dancing On Ice pro skating partner Vanessa Bauer, 26, during rehearsals

“At the moment they’ve managed to keep everything professional, but you can tell they’re both super flirty.”

“They’ll be spending a lot of time together over the next few months due to rehearsals, so it’s easy to see how the romance could blossom.

The two were seen growing closer as they caught up in the Red Bar at London’s Grosvenor House, where the ceremony was taking place.

An excited Maura could be seen smiling with her eyes closed as she tilted her head close to Joey’s, while Joey was also seen moving closer to the beauty.

The pair were also seen sharing an intimate hug, with the Irish stunner resting her head on Joey’s shoulder.

Maura and Joey seemed very relaxed in each other’s company as they chatted together in the lobby.

And it appeared the two couldn’t stay away from each other as they shared a taxi before setting off with other friends.

Keep Olympic News Free

Support insidethegames.biz for just £10

For nearly 15 years now, insidethegames.biz has been at the forefront of fearless reporting on what’s happening in the Olympic Movement. As the first website not to be placed behind a paywall, we have made information about the International Olympic Committee, the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Commonwealth Games and other major events more accessible to everyone than ever before.

insidethegames.biz has earned a worldwide reputation for excellent reporting and breadth of coverage. For many of our readers in over 200 countries and territories around the world, the website is an essential part of their daily lives. The ping of our free daily email alert, sent every morning at 6.30am UK time, 365 days a year, landing in their inbox, is as much a part of their day as their first cup of coffee.

Even during the worst times of the COVID-19 pandemic, insidethegames.biz has maintained its high level of daily reporting on all news around the world. We were the first publication in the world to report on the threat facing the Olympic Movement from the coronavirus and have since provided unprecedented coverage of the pandemic.

As the world begins to emerge from the COVID crisis, insidethegames.biz would like to invite you to help us on our journey by funding our independent journalism. Your vital support would enable us to continue to report so comprehensively on the Olympic Movement and the events that shape it. This would mean that we can keep our website open to everyone.

Every contribution, large or small, will help maintain and improve our global coverage in the coming year. Our small, dedicated team has been extremely busy over the past year covering the revamped Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo, an unprecedented logistical challenge that has stretched our limited resources to the limit.

The rest of 2022 will be no less busy or less challenging. We had the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Beijing, where we sent a team of four journalists, and the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, the World Summer University and the Asian Games in China, the World Games in Alabama and several world championships are coming up. Plus, of course, there’s the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Unlike many others, insidethegames.biz is available to everyone, regardless of what they can afford to pay.

Japan’s defending world champion Shoma Uno rallied in the free program to snatch the Skate Canada men’s crown from compatriot Kao Miura by 7.86 points on Saturday.

Uno, the 24-year-old Japanese star who holds three Olympic medals, landed five quadruple jumps, though not all of top quality, for a total of 273.15 points.

It was enough to win the gold medal at the second stage of the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating, where Japanese skaters also took the podium in the women’s and pairs events.

Miura, the 17-year-old Japanese national junior champion, finished second in the free skate to finish second, just as he did at Skate America last week when 17-year-old American Ilia Malinin passed him in the free skate .

Miura took silver with 265.29 and Italian Matteo Rizzo third.

Japan’s Rinka Watanabe, sixth after the short program, won the free skate to claim the women’s title after the top three in the short program struggled.

Watanabe, a 20-year-old making her Grand Prix debut, landed a triple axel and won with 197.59 points overall to 191.26 for runner-up Starr Andrews of the United States and 190.15 for the south -Korean Young You, who finished fourth in both routines. .

Watanabe was entered due to a stress fracture in his right tibia which forced Olympian Wakaba Higuchi to withdraw from the Grand Prix campaign.

Canadians Madeline Schizas and Gabrielle Daleman, who finished first and second in the short program, both fell in the final order. Schizas finished seventh overall and Daleman 10th.

World duet silver medalists Riku Miura and Ryuichi Kihara earned a 25.54 point win over Americans Emily Chan and Spencer Howe.

They led after the short program and won the free skate to build a total score of 212.02 – the best in the world this season.

Canadians Piper Gilles and Paul Poirer won their third straight Skate Canada ice dance title with 215.70 points after winning both the free dance and the rhythm dance. Britons Lilah Fear and Lewis Gibson finished second in both routines and overall.

A pop-up full-size outdoor rink is coming to Park City Center from November 18 through February 26.

The rink open to the public will be located outside the space that once housed Bon Ton and will be transformed into an indoor holiday market in the Lancaster City Mall at 142 Park City Center.

Operated by Pennsylvania-based Flight On Ice, the 60-by-100-foot rink will be open Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.; Thursday, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday, 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; with extended vacation hours and weather permitting.

Single general admission tickets to skate are $12, with $10 skate rental plus taxes and fees, from December 16 to January 2 for peak holiday times and $10 and $8 for all other sessions .

Reservations, which are encouraged, are available on flightonice.com. Discounts are available for the purchase of packages and family passes. Group reservations and private events are also available.

Weekly events at the rink will include: free movie nights on Wednesdays with bottomless bags of popcorn; “Thank You Thursdays” for Lancaster County residents with a special “Buy One, Get Half a Skate Off” special, and “Dine, Shop and Skate Under the Stars” on Fridays with a discount on packs of two. Saturday Night Socials for students from local schools will transform the rink into a colorful light-up party with themed music and entertainment and ‘Sunday Family Fundays’ will be offering a special four-ticket package at a reduced price, including offers, free activities and themes.

Flight on Ice is teaming up with Park City owner Brookfield Properties and Discover Lancaster to showcase the rink.

“When we were approached by Flight On Ice with the opportunity to bring ice skating back to Lancaster County, it was a no-brainer,” said Ed Harris, president and CEO of Discover Lancaster, the county tourism promotion agency. “As part of a modest sponsorship, we will have on-site branding presence, inclusion in Flight On Ice email newsletters and opportunities to develop contests for people to win free tickets. We will also be supporting the event through our Discover Lancaster social media channels and on DiscoverLancaster.com to help spread the word.

“The many experiences on offer are very engaging and will make wonderful memories for family and friends,” he said.

Park City did indoor ice skating for a few years in the 1970s.

In October 1971, indoor skating made its debut in Park City, with a large rink taking up space on the ground floor of the new mall.

At the time of the mall’s opening, the mall’s four main departments were themed around the four seasons. A plexiglass panel in the floor of the “Winter” mall allowed shoppers to watch the skaters below.

An indoor rink meant skating could be offered year-round, and summer figure skating camps in Park City were popular in the early 1970s.

The Park City Rink was short-lived, however, and it was closed and removed in early 1974.

Winter activities in central Wyoming are truly top-notch. Skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, snowmobiling and skating are all opportunities for you and your family to get out and enjoy the elements.

Last week, many of us were heartbroken by the news that the David Street station would not have outdoor ice skates, due to supply chain issues. Even though the industrial cooler needed to keep the ice frozen was checked in time, the company announced the bad news that it would not be possible to get one in time for the 2022-2023 season.

If ice skating is the winter activity you really enjoy, there are options.

Casper Ice Arena offers hours of public skating at times throughout the day.

The new Glenrock Town Square plans to offer skating this year for the first time. The city plans to have the Xtraice rink it ordered in Spain ready to depart for Winter Fest on December 3.

Unlike the David Street Station rink which needs an industrial cooler to store the ice, the Glenrock rink will be a synthetic ice rink.

If you are wondering how it will work, Xtraice says on their website

Xtraice’s ice rink flooring to the better level of sliding never reached. Our secret is a protector and a lubricant specially designed in the Xtraice laboratories. The lubricant is housed in the structure of our ice slabs during their manufacture and gradually rises to the surface throughout the life of the product. This means that the surface always maintains the optimum level of glide.

You will be able to use any type of skate to enjoy the synthetic ice rink, the ice rink will not require additional water or electricity to keep the ice frozen, and the synthetic ice is softer and will cause less injury from falls .

According to Mandy Jones, Community Development Manager of Glenrock’s Town Square:

Our rink was ordered from Spain and is currently in the port of Charleston blocked by customs. We hope it will continue on its way as soon as possible.

That being said, once the Xtraice rink arrives in Glenrock, it will only take about a day to install. Again, it’s synthetic ice, so you don’t have to wait for the water to freeze to make ice.

Check out this video from the Xtraice website showing how easy it will be to set up and how cool it is to be able to skate on it anytime.

This is what central Wyoming looked like after a major snowstorm in October

Over the course of two days in early October 2021, central Wyoming received 8 to 16 inches of heavy, wet snow. Here are some of the photos you shared with us.
