Rebecca Adlington and Mark Foster recently found themselves at the centre of romance reports thanks to their onscreen chemistry in Rio – but they didn't let those rumours bother them as they arrived arm-in-arm at the GQ Awards on Monday. The BBC Olympic presenters looked closer than ever as they stepped out for the star-studded event in London's Tate Modern.

Rebecca then notably shared a photograph taken on the night of her and Mark on her Instagram page, which she captioned with a love heart emoji. "Me and @markfosterswim at the @britishgq awards.💗," she wrote.

Mum-of-one Rebecca looked sensational in a plunging white shirt, which she teamed with black wide-legged trousers and strappy heels. With a big smile she posed with her arm around the waist of her handsome companion, who looked dapper in a smart black tuxedo with a bow tie.

Last month, Rebecca, 27, caused a frenzy amongst viewers when she appeared to grab Mark's leg in the middle of their Olympics swimming coverage. But Mark, 46, later insisted that the incident had been entirely innocent.

"It's funny the attention we've been getting at the BBC with people remarking on Becky touching my leg," he said. "But the reality is that Becky does that simply to get my attention either when she has something to say or else she wants me to butt in."

Rebecca shocked fans earlier this year when she announced the end of her 18-month marriage to fellow swimmer Harry Needs, the father of her 15-month-old daughter Summer. But despite their split, the former couple remain "very much the best of friends".

"It's not like we're talking, because we are – we talk all the time," Rebecca told the Irish Mirror in April. "We are both just working hard on trying to be good parents, and our total focus is on our daughter.

"We are both so sporty so we take her swimming, and I would be very surprised if Summer doesn't grow up to be very sporty and active."
