The 65-year-old looked as suave as ever in his black bomber with a military-style logo – similar to the one worn by the movie character Maverick in the ’80s movie.

The outing comes after his wife Judy admitted he proposed to her while they were both married and it was just three weeks after their very first date.
The former TV presenter already had twins Tom and Jack, then six, when she met Richard while they were both working for Granada Television – an ITV franchise.
Unhappy in her marriage to journalist David Henshaw, the Good Morning Britain presenter had already seen her on TV and developed a crush.
‘I thought he was a bit flashy’: Judy Finnigan, 73, has revealed her husband Richard, whom she proposed when they were both married … and it was just three weeks into their very first date (pictured in 2019).
She told Kate Thornton’s White Wine Question Time podcast: “I had absolutely no doubt that my boys who were six years old are twins – two six year old boys was my absolute priority and they had to be.
“And as Richard and I got closer and realized that we… They talked about marriage after about three weeks, didn’t they, I remember. “It was clear that things were very, very serious.”
Judy even admitted that she thought Richard’s suit was “a bit flashy” at the time, but since he otherwise “looked nice,” she decided to let their relationship develop.
She revealed her colleagues were convinced the couple was just engaged in an “affair” and were amazed when they each divorced their other halves.
