Rebecca Adlington decided to pay tribute to her BBC Olympics co-host, Helen Skelton, on her final day - but there was no mention of Mark Foster...
Rebecca Adlington and Mark Foster’s brilliant on-screen flirting during the BBC Olympics swimming coverage might be over, but speculation about a possible romance certainly isn’t.
The talented duo had us in stitches with their superb chemistry over the past few weeks, and also had us seriously intrigued as to whether they were a little more than friends… (We all saw THAT thigh grab, didn’t we?)
Of course, Helen Skelton was always present to make sure things didn’t get too saucy (teehee), and we have to say, with the Olympics swimming coverage now over, we’re desperately missing all three of them.
And it seems Becky is too, as on her latest day of BBC hosting, she decided to pay tribute to her co-presenter in the cutest way.
Sharing a snap of her and Helen in the Olympics stadium, the pro swimmer wrote: ‘This week has simply been amazing to watch and see the British Swimmers doing so well. But I want to say a massive thank you to this very special lady @helenskelton.
‘It was my first time covering the Olympics with the BBC and I have learnt so much from Helen. She is such a joy to work with, knows her stuff, so passionate and simply a lovely person. #Olympics.’
Cute right? Except, WHERE IS MARK?!
Many fans were surprised to see that Becky didn’t choose to thank Mark, whom she clearly gets on brilliant with (and might also fancy, just a little bit). And they made their surprise clear in the comments section.

‘Where is Mark?! ;)’, one fan wrote.
Whilst another made sure to remind everyone that Mark was very much included in the presenting trio.
‘@beckadlington @helenskelton @markfosterswim loved the swimming coverage due to you 3! Great knowledge and chemistry!’, they wrote.
Have Becky and Mark had a lovers’ tiff? Or perhaps she just felt like bigging up the girlmance she enjoyed during the Olympics instead… Who knows. Either way, we’re still totally holding out for a Becky/Mark hook-up.
