Some viewers even compared the pair to Strictly Come Dancing's Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell, who were paired together on the BBC dance programme and only confirmed their romance after the grand finale.
Last night, 20-year-old Wes finished second in the ice skating competition, with ex Strictly pro James Jordan taking home the crown after impressing the judges and viewers at home with his show-stopping Bolero routine.
Some disappointed fans took to social media after the result was announced to claim that James' win was a "fix" given his extensive dance experience, but others were more preoccupied with Wes and Vanessa's sizzling chemistry.
Writing on Twitter, one fan said: "Wes and Vanessa should have won. Hope they become a permanent couple."
Another added: "Wes and Vanessa remind me of Joe and Dianne so much, like if they're not a couple I'll be shocked."
A third said: "I am fully rooting for Wes and Vanessa to become a couple after this series."
One fan begged: "WES AND VANESSA JUST GET TOGETHER FFS HOW CUTEEEEE".
Another tweeted: "Love Wes and Vanessa they would make a great couple."
The comments came after it was revealed that the Love Island hunk DID enjoy a fling with the German pro at the start of the series.
An insider previously told us that Wes later decided they were better off as friends and their brief tryst fizzled out — causing a tension that has left their bid for skating victory close to the edge.
The source revealed: "They had a thing at the start of the competition.
"Wes and Vanessa were instantly attracted to each other, you only had to be in the same room as them for a minute to see sparks were flying.
"But it wasn’t long before Wes decided he would rather stay single. He is the man of the moment and fast becoming a household name.
"Girls are queuing up to knock on his door. The last thing he needs is a serious relationship. Vanessa has come to accept it.
"This has been really awkward but they are both being professional and getting on with it."
Shortly after the series began in January, Wes' Love Island girlfriend Megan Barton-Hanson slammed Vanessa before ending her romance with Wes as she admitted that she was "jealous" of the pair's working relationship.
Wes has always insisted that Vanessa is not his type and nothing has happened between them.
