Cole as Ice

Model Lily Cole skated into a child this week at the opening of the Somerset House Ice rink.

King's beauty Lily Cole KNOCKED into a CHILD this week, whilst skating in London.

The art historian, who models and jet-sets in her spare time, was taking part in the opening of the Somerset House Ice Rink, at a party thrown by Tiffany & Co.

The catwalk STUNNER, an undergrad at King’s, glided into the young girl, who had fallen and had to make an “abrupt halt”.

True to form as an Ambassador for the Global Angels children’s charity, an International Foundation championing the causes of children around the world, Cole proceeded to help the youngster back to her feet.

The 21 year-old then linked arms with two female companions and slipped off.

The leggy pin-up, and aspiring actress, was charged with the task of the official opening the rink.

Cole was more sure of her footing as she walked to the middle of the rink to do this – with the help of a laid out carpet.

Used to strutting her stuff in towering heels, skating boots were evidently not her style.
