Declan Donnelly arrives at Wimbledon hand in hand with pregnant wife Ali Astall

Wimbledon week two kicked off on Monday with a celeb-packed crowd watching the final 16 compete at SW19.  

With Grand Slam champion Serena Williams back on court along with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal the start of week two has been dubbed 'Manic Monday'.

And the stars were out in force to take in the action, with Britain's Got Talent host Declan Donnelly making the most of his time off TV for an afternoon of sport with his pregnant wife Ali Astall.

Ali looked gorgeous in a floral dress which hugged her growing bump as the couple walked through the gates of SW19 hand in hand.

The blonde carried a wicker bag with one hand and held on tight to her husband's with the other. The TV favourite was dapper in a blue blazer with gold button detail.  

Also in attendance on Monday was Dec's ex girlfriend, sports presenter Georgie Thompson, who was enjoying the day with her Olympian husband Sir Ben Ainslie.

Donnelly called time on their two-year relationship in 2011, with Georgie speaking out on the 'tough' breakup shortly after. 'At the moment, the party line is that we’re really good friends and really support each other.

'But it’s been tough, it’s really tough. It’s a really hard thing to live out a painful break-up when you’re in the public eye. It hurts but we have to be grown-up.' Friends added at the time that Dec was reluctant to settle down , claiming: 'Dec didn’t feel ready for marriage and babies.'

The two both got their happy ending though as Georgie married British sailor Sir Ben in 2014, with their daughter Bellatrix born on 16 July 2016.
