Pressed about it by Susanna Reid and Ed Balls, the star said he couldn't confirm anything.

But he added: "The truth is, I'm single, Vanessa's single, you know?

"We go to the ice everyday, it's cold, do you know what I mean? We've got to keep each other warm!

"But yeah it's all good."

The presenters started to congratulate him on his new relationship but, smirking, Joey said he wasn't confirming anything.

However, Susanna disagreed, and said it sounded like he and Vanessa were an item.

Joey then confessed: "We are taking it slow, it's all good."

As the hosts said it was lovely news, Joey continued to laugh and insist he wasn't confirming anything.

But Susanna said viewers would easily see that he had a "soft spot" for Vanessa.

"Of course I do," said the reality star.

"Who wouldn't though? Vanessa's lovely."

Fans of Dancing On Ice have been speculating about Joey and Vanessa for days, with several pointing out how close the pair seem.

Others have also pointed to the fact that they appear to have amazing chemistry when they are performing together on the show.
