Kate Wright and Rio Ferdinand made the most of the sunny weather as they headed out for a romantic picnic on Saturday.
The Only Way Is Essex star and the former football pro looked more in love than ever as they stopped in a park to have a bite to eat, following Rio’s return from Moscow, Russia where he was filming for the FIFA World Cup.
In the sweet snap, which Kate shared with her 885,000 Instagram followers, Rio laid back on a huge yellow blanket, as Kate rested her head on his thigh.
The blonde beauty placed one hand lovingly on Rio’s leg as she beamed up at the camera.
Both Rio and Kate sported gym gear for their outing, as Kate opted for a pair of tight black lycra shorts and a black crop top which she teamed with a pair of chic grey trainers and statement round sunglasses.
Staying cool in the hot weather, the former TOWIE star swept her tresses into a tight bun, keeping it in place with a stylish black hairband.
