Tess Daly and Vernon Kay look loved-up during Wimbledon appearance

hellomagazine.com

After a tough start to the year, Tess Daly and Vernon Kay put on a united and very loved-up front this week when they stepped out together to watch the second day of Wimbledon. In March it was reported TV presenter Vernon had been messaging the same glamour model who nearly cost him his marriage in 2012.

But he and wife Tess, 47, were pictured beaming as they walked hand-in-hand at the tennis event, clearly having put the alleged incident firmly in the past. Strictly Come Dancing host Tess looked radiant in a white mini-dress and wore her blonde hair in beachy waves.

Meanwhile Vernon opted for a classic navy suit and topped off his dapper look with a pair of sunglasses.

Shortly after the allegations earlier this year, Vernon, 42, released an official statement in which he insisted his wife of 15 years was well-aware of his messages to model Rhian Sugden.

He said: "I was contacted by Rhian out of the blue back in December regarding the story 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 added: "Tess is well-aware of everything that has been discussed with Rhian."

His father Norman Kay also spoke out at the time, telling The Sun: "As far as I know Vernon and Tess are alright. They're not too concerned. "

Tess and Vernon are parents to daughters Phoebe, 11, and six-year-old Amber.
