But quicker to catch attention was Nile’s choice of outfit, which appeared to be his girlfriend’s pyjamas.

It followed two photos of unusual shaped pancakes that left the pair laughing.

Hermione has been in attendance at Dancing on Ice every week to support her boyfriend as he continues to impress judges and fans.

Alongside Hermione, Nile’s family, including parents Sally and Neil and sister Joanna have also been in regular attendance.

Joanna, 24, has been sharing behind the scenes videos of her brother competing in the figure skating competition with the family happy to be back supporting Nile at sporting events.

Nile and his professional skating partner Olivia Smart have been earning high scores since their first appearance on the show with impressive routines.

Last week, the pair were the third highest scoring couple on the programme with 35 points, just behind The Vivienne and Carley Stenson who both scored 36.

Despite the high score on Sunday night (February 19) fans were quick to complain the show was ‘fixed’ and that Nile and Olivia were undermarked.

The couple performed a Mission Impossible themed skate during the show’s movie week, with Nile succeeding in the judges challenge of performing a 2ft high jump.

Nile and Olivia have solidified their position as firm favourites to win the show, with odds of 11/8 of winning the show.

Despite this, a technical glitch during the live figure skating show meant that the marks didn’t appear on the screen when they should have.
