Rebekah opted to wear a pair of white trainers for the outing, as they prepared for the lifts while off the ice rink.

Despite their arduous workout, the WAG opted to keep her brunette locks loose, though she chose not to wear any accessories. 

The tough routine saw Andy pick up Rebekah and twist around in a circle as she kicked in the air gracefully before he set her back down. 

Andy kept things casual for the outing, as he paired a long-sleeved black top with matching trousers and trainers.

Earlier in the week, Andy revealed Rebekah had accidentally cut his face with her ice skate while they rehearsed together.

Showing his injury which had been covered in a plaster he claimed they’d ‘had a little mishap’ as Rebekah apologised profusely to him.

Andy explained: ‘It was a freak accident. She did nothing wrong, technically she did it very well.’ 

It comes after Rebekah won the first round of her and Coleen’s High Court libel battle,  after she was accused of leaking stories about Coleen’s private life to the media.

Coleen accused Rebekah of giving the press ‘false stories’ about her private life last October after carrying out a months-long ‘sting operation’ which saw her dubbed ‘Wagatha Christie’.

The wife of former England star Wayne Rooney claimed fellow footballer’s wife Rebekah – wife of Jamie Vardy – shared fake stories she had posted on her personal Instagram account with The Sun newspaper.

Rebekah denies the accusations and is suing Coleen for damages for libel at the High Court in London

Last month, the court ruled the post ‘clearly identified’ Rebekah as being ‘guilty of the serious and consistent breach of trust’ – but minutes later Coleen hit back with a statement via her spokesman, saying she was ‘keen’ to hear what Vardy has to say in court.

On October 20, Rebekah won the first round of her libel battle against Coleen, when the court ruled the post ‘clearly identified’ Rebekah as being ‘guilty of the serious and consistent breach of trust’.

Minutes later Coleen hit back with a statement via her spokesman, saying she was ‘keen’ to hear what Rebekah has to say in court.

She infamously wrote on Instagram and Twitter: ‘I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It’s ……………. Rebekah Vardy’s account.’ 

Why does last week’s ruling in the case matter? 

Last week’s ruling at the High Court related to the wording in the final sentence of Coleen Rooney’s infamous Instagram post, in which she accused Rebekah Vardy of leaking ‘false stories’ about her private life to the media.

She wrote: ‘I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It’s ……………. Rebekah Vardy’s account.’

Mrs Rooney claimed she simply referred to Mrs Vardy’s Instagram account rather than Mrs Vardy herself.

But the judge said an ordinary reader would not take the word ‘account’ to ‘indicate that Mrs Rooney remains in doubt about who the wrongdoer was’.

Today, the judge made an important ruling that the post ‘clearly identified’ Mrs Vardy as being ‘guilty of the serious and consistent breach of trust’.

He also disagreed with Mrs Rooney’s claim that using multiple ellipses in the final line diluted the meaning. 

This means the court has no doubt as to who the accusation was made against – Mrs Vardy – which will be a consideration if the libel case goes to trial next year.

The ruling at the High Court last week related to the wording in the final sentence of the post, with Coleen claiming she simply referred to Rebekah’s Instagram account rather than the WAG herself.

This means the court has no doubt as to who the accusation was made against – Coleen – which will be a consideration if the libel case goes to trial next year.

Coleen’s spokesman told MailOnline following the ruling: ‘Today’s ruling on the technical legal meaning of the post changes nothing. Coleen’s defence to this misguided action was filed last month. 

‘It sets out clearly the facts of her case, which remain the same irrespective of any decision on the meaning. The key issues of the case remain the three stories from Coleen’s private Instagram account published by The Sun and Rebekah’s relationship with the newspaper, including its ‘Secret Wag’ column.

‘Coleen is pleased the judge has ordered that Rebekah must file her reply to the defence, on oath, by no later than December 8. After three years of stress and anxiety about the leaks from her private social media account, Coleen is keen to see progress made on the real issues, beginning with what Rebekah has to tell the court.’  

Mr Justice Warby ruled that the ‘natural and ordinary’ meaning of Coleen’s posts was that Rebekah had ‘regularly and frequently abused her status as a trusted follower of Coleen’s personal Instagram account by secretly informing The Sun newspaper of her private posts and stories’.
