Richard Madeley’s wife Judy shocked the world when she announced she would be taking a step back from showbiz.

Fans have been accustomed to seeing the pair present as a couple after they fronted Channel 4’s Richard and Judy show for over eight years, and ITV’s This Morning for a decade.

Judy briefly returned to the celebrity circuit at the races today, accompanied by Good Morning Britain host Richard, who wore a pale blue shirt and beige suit combo.

Meanwhile, Judy dazzled in a white dress covered by a floral patterned jacket with pink and peach splashes of colour.

In true Ascot style, Judy also boasted a fashionable hat, and white sunglasses to match.

It comes after Richard, 65, previously explained that although his 73-year-old wife has decided to retire from being on-screen alongside him, they are still very much together behind the scenes.

He has jokingly described their situation as being “semi-detached”.


One of the last major showbiz events attended by Judy Finnigan and Richard Madeley together. The pair appeared alongside Holly Willoughby, Phillip Schofield, Ruth Langsford, Eamonn Holmes and Rochelle Hume, after This Morning won a gong at the National Television Awards 2020
