Vernon Kay and Tess Daly are ready to move on following the recent reports he had been messaging model Rhian Sugden again. The couple appeared to have put the scandal behind them as they left their friend Jimmy Carr's house party hand-in-hand on Monday night.
The All Star Family Fortunes host led the way in a smart shirt and jeans, while Tess followed closely behind in a black and white mini dress. The pair appeared to be in good spirits as they left the comedian's home and got into a waiting car, suggesting they have got their relationship back on track.

The couple's united front comes two months after it was alleged Vernon had been texting the same glamour model who nearly cost him his marriage in 2010. Vernon, 42, insisted the new texts to Rhian were above board and Tess was aware of their communication. In a statement posted to Facebook, he claimed Rhian had new information about the 2010 scandal he needed to know.
"I was contacted by Rhian out of the blue back in December," he wrote. "Regarding the story in 2010 claiming she had new information she wanted to pass on.
"I recognise how it may look when the messages are pulled out of context but there was never any inappropriate intent to our communication, I was merely trying to find out answers to questions I've had since 2010."

Vernon finished: "Tess is aware of everything that has been discussed with Rhian."
Vernon and Tess have been married since 2003, and are parents to Phoebe, 11, and six-year-old Amber.
Vernon made a public apology to Tess back in 2010 after it was revealed he had been sending in appropriate messages to five women, including Rhian. The source added: "Vernon broke her heart six years ago and now he's back in touch with the same girl. He must be mad."
