Alisha and Jermain were seen at the Pride Of Britain awards ceremony just six days earlier, but the sports presenter looks like he has completely moved on.

However, he was also reportedly spotted with Alisha at his £3million mansion on October 20, days after his weekend getaway with Paige.
Jermain started dating Alisha in January, just a few weeks after His marriage failed to wife Donna Tierney, who claims the star cheated on her.

“I love you more than Selfridges, leesh xxxx.”
