Dino & Pete go skating

Forget Torvill and Dean, they can skate!

These lads have all the gear and no idea.

Well they had skates on their feet and a whole lot of bottle to allow themselves to be filmed gliding along the ice learning to skate at the National Ice Centre in Nottingham.

Self confessed Todd Carty-a-like Dino can be forgiven for being a bit wobbly since he's at least 7 foot tall and could blow down in strong winds, but Bilbo Baggins Pete has no excuse!

So who will stay on their feet - and who will be flat on their backside?

See the video below to find out

Now see boys trying Ice Hockey
Watch as they go head to head
and see their penguin race competition
(that's right, penguin race, could they get any more childish?)

Who will win?
More importantly - who looks better in lycra?

Why not learn to skate like Dino and Pete?
(only a bit better)
