Vanessa has backed her partner to go all the way after he has amazed her by picking himself up after his fall during training.
Speaking at Disney’s Encanto premiere at Picturehouse Central in London, the German skater, who looked glam in a colourful mini-skirt, told The Sun: “I’m really enjoying Dancing on Ice this year.
“It’s so fun with Brendan. I was trying to bring him today but he said definitely the next one.
“He has been so focused on training, he has been working so hard.
“He’s determined to do well and go all the way.
“We’re having a great time training.”

Vanessa posted a video on Instagram of the couple’s nasty fall during rehearsals.
Fortunately, there was someone else on hand to lessen the impact and the pair managed to escape mostly unscathed.
Vanessa shared the clip and wrote: “Another one”, suggesting they had suffered a fair few falls.
She added: “This Dancing On Ice thing is not easy!”
Meanwhile Brendan, who was a pro dancer on the BBC One show from 2004 to 2018, thinks that his dancing background could help him win the competition.
Just last month Brendan said he had a “massive advantage” over his rivals with his Strictly dance skills.
The star, who was a pro dancer on the BBC One show from 2004 to 2018, said: “Yes, I have an advantage, I’ll hopefully pick up choreography quite easily.”
“There’ll be certain things I won’t have to think about working on in the week, because hopefully they will be naturally there.
“But I like to think, as I did with Strictly, you start in a certain place and it’s not where you finish, it’s about where you start and your progression.”
He might pick up the choreography quickly but he’s clearly not mastered the lifts yet.Vanessa has been impressed with Brendan’s work ethic and reckons he will go all the way[/caption]
