Former Sky Sports presenter Simon Thomas stepped out with a glamorous Derrina Jebb at Cheltenham Racecourse for Gold Cup Day on Friday.
Simon, 45, and his girlfriend put on a glamorous display on the final day of the horse racing festival, despite the wet and windy weather.
Derrina, 27, looked pretty in a black coat with a fur collar, which was tied in at the waist.
She wore brown knee-high suede boots and a matching hat, while she also carried a brown handbag.
Simon, meanwhile, looked dapper in a grey double-breasted coat and navy blue trousers paired with brown shoes.
The former Blue Peter presenter has revealed that he’s in a new relationship, 16 months after the tragic death of his wife Gemma in November 2017.

Simon said that his new partner had been an “incredible support” to himself and his son Ethan after Gemma, 40, tragically passed away just three days after she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia.
In December 2017 it was reported by The Sun that the woman Simon is dating is Derrina, whom he met through his church, with the publication obtaining pictures of the pair grabbing coffee together.
Derrina is a church minister’s daughter and currently works in the legal industry.
At the time, it was reported that the couple are taking things “very slowly”, but Derrina has even an “incredible support” to Simon.
A source told The Sun: “The relationship came as a shock because it was not something Simon was looking for at all. But as soon as he met Derrina the pair had a connection.
“She is a Christian and the daughter of a well-respected minister.
“Their connection has gone from strength-to-strength and Derrina really has been a huge support for him through this awful time.”
