The pair had learnt some basic figure skating skills as they went head to head to see who could skate better.

However, Hermione took a hard fall that caused a big lump and bruises on both of her knees.

Nile shared his girlfriend’s injury on his Instagram stories last night as he asked Hermione: “Are you ever skating again?”

A beaming Hermione told her boyfriend: “yeah” as Nile was shocked by the level of her injuries.
