Melanie Sykes and her toy-boy Jack Cockings went public with their relationship during a day out in London this week. Despite the cloudy weather, the television presenter opted to wear a pair of extremely short workout shorts, with bright pink vest and sports trainers, as she and Jack wandered around Hampstead.
The 41-year-old and her new beau certainly played up for the cameras, laughing and joking, with Sykes at one point grabbing her own bottom with two hands. Melanie asked the photographers not to take any pictures of her sons Roman and Valentino, though seemed happy enough for the paparazzi to snap herself and new boyfriend Jack. The couple reportedly met on the micro-blogging site Twitter, sending each other a number of raunchy public messages. According to the UK's Metro newspaper, Sykes wad ridiculed for writing, "Jack the rabbit I need some bunny love so hop to it!! Xxx boing boing!!! Loooooool xxxxxxx", before adding, "'I've got the raging horn, please take me", and later telling followers she had "the giddiest knickers" of her life.
Sykes was previously married to the Italian actor Daniel Caltagirone, though they split in 2008 after having two children together. The couple's divorce was finalised in June 2009.
