Harry Styles shows off his ripped physique as he enjoys a chilly swim in the River Thames with his girlfriend Taylor Russell

He’s been enjoying some well-deserved downtime over the Christmas break.

And Harry Styles showed off his unlikely new hobby as he took a freezing cold dip in the River Thames with his girlfriend Taylor Russell.

In a snap shared by a fan on Instagram, the singer, 29, showed off his ripped physique as he emerged from the water after the refreshing dip.

Taylor donned a black unitard and a matching woolly hat as she headed down the jetty with her boyfriend. 

Harry and Taylor were first romantically linked after they were spotted enjoying an art gallery date in London in June.

Since then, the pair have been spotted enjoying various outings together as they take their romance to new heights. 

The Watermelon Sugar singer reportedly ‘sees a future’ and is ‘head over heels for Taylor,’ a source revealed to Us Weekly last month before noting that he ‘loves spending as much time with her as he can’.

The insider claimed: ‘Things are very serious, and Harry definitely sees a future with Taylor.’

The insider also said that the One Direction vet accompanied Taylor to an after party  for the final night of her play, The Effect, at the National Theatre.

‘Even though they’re both busy with their careers, they support one another any chance they get,’ the source told the outlet.

Harry recently debuted his new buzz cut after sending fans into meltdown with his surprise new look, as he enjoyed a U2 concert with Taylor.

He sparked a social media frenzy when it was revealed he’d shaved off his iconic curls, leading one to even brand his behaviour ‘unhinged.’

Harry has reportedly been staying in a swanky £2,500-a-night hotel in Central London as building work continues on his £50M mega mansion.

He is said to be living out of a suitcase at the very lavish accommodation with Taylor keeping him company.

Harry splashed out £13M in 2020 for neighbouring 18th Century houses in North London which he knocked into one property before getting to work on transforming them.

A source told The Sun: ‘Harry has understandably kept a wide berth from his pad while the major works are under way, and has checked in to a lavish hotel while in London. His girlfriend Taylor has been staying with him’.

‘They keep a low profile, popping out for coffees and snacks, and cycling around London like tourists.’
