The gymnast and his Sheffield-born skating partner have remained firm favourites to win the show from the beginning of the programme.

Last week, they performed a Mission Impossible-inspired routine for Movie Week, with Nile successfully completing a 2ft high jump during the routine.

The skating duo received a score of 35 points for their routine, which led to disappointment from fans who claimed that the pair were “undermarked” by judges for their routine.

Nile recently joined the celebrity line-up for BBC Three’s new reality series Go Hard or Go Home, which aired for the first time on 19 February.

The show sees an elite team of celebrities and sportspeople help change the lives of eight contestants whilst pushing them to their limits.
