Sky Sports anchor Simon Thomas, 46, arrived at Cheltenham Racecourse today to enjoy Gold Cup Day at Cheltenham Festival 2019.

The former Blue Peter presenter, whose wife tragically died two years ago, stepped out with his reported new girlfriend Derrina Jebb, 27, on the final day of the horse racing festival.

Back in December, The Sun On Sunday claimed the television personality had found love again with Derrina and the pair were seen together at a service station.

A source told the newspaper: “The relationship came as a shock because it was not something Simon was looking for at all. But as soon as he met Derrina the pair had a connection.”

Simon looked smart for today’s occasion in a grey double-breasted coat and navy blue trousers.

His love interest wore a black coat, which was tied at the waist highlighting her slim figure, teamed with a pair of brown knee-high suede boots and a matching hat.

Widower Simon first revealed he was dating again following the sudden death of his wife on BBC Radio 5 Live at the end of last year.

Gemma Thomas, his wife of 12 years, died in November 2017 shortly after being diagnosed wth acute myeloid leukaemia.

The couple had one son together called Ethan.

Last month, Simon posted a picture on Instagram showing a present he had received from his son and tagged Derrina into the post.

He wrote: “My absolute favourite birthday pressie was this from my boy (with a bit of help from @derrina) A cushion made from two of Gemma’s skirts.”

Toady the new couple braved the British wet weather along with several other famous faces including Carol Vorderman and Victoria Pendleton as well as Richard Hammond and his family.
