Rebecca Adlington And Mark Foster Step Out At The GQ Awards

The Olympics presenters definitely aren't bothered by *those* romance rumours...

Since the Olympics came to an end last month, we’ve been suffering from some serious Rio withdrawal symptoms.

We miss the sport, we miss seeing Team GB zoom up the medals table… and we also miss those ‘flirting’ presenters.

Rebecca Adlington and Mark Foster looked close at the Olympics

Yep. Unless you were hiding under a rock for the entirety of the Games, you’ll know that the rumour mill went into overdrive over suggestions of a romance between the pair.

Eagle-eyed viewers found themselves more than a teeny bit excited when Becky, 27, appeared to stroke 46-year-old Mark’s thigh under the table while live on air.

However, Mark denied that this meant they were a thing, claiming that ‘thigh-gate’ was simply: ‘Becky [trying to get] my attention either when she has something to say or else she wants me to butt in.’

Hype around the duo seemed to calm down a bit after they returned to the UK. However, they did something pretty surprising last night, leading the speculation to start all over again. Ooh.

Rebecca Adlington and Mark Foster worked co-ordinated outfits at the GQ Awards

What was this? They rocked up to the GQ Men Of The Year Awards together! Adorably, they cuddled up to each other on the London red carpet – and were even sporting matching outfits.

Becky looked gorgeous in monochrome wide-legged jumpsuit, which she’d paired with a cream belt and metallic strappy heels.

When it came to her beauty look, she’d opted for straight tresses, pink lips and a classic smoky eye.

Meanwhile, Mark was dapper in a smart tux.

Becky clearly enjoyed catching up with her old pal, captioning an Instagram photo: ‘Me and @markfosterswim at the @britishgq awards. ?.’

Whatever’s going on here, we’re just glad to see they’ve stayed close.
