The former TOWIE star is smitten with her footballer beau

They kept their romance relatively low-key to begin with, but now Kate Wright and Rio Ferdinand can’t get enough of showing fans how smitten they are.

They say couples that train together, stay together and on Tuesday Kate proved that she and ex-football legend Rio certainly have a lot of fun together.

On Mother’s Day, Kate revealed she felt ‘overwhelmed with emotion’ as she helped Rio’s children mark the special day without their mum Rebecca Ellison, who tragically passed away from cancer in 2015.

She wrote on Instagram: ‘Happy Mother’s Day to my lovely mum. I love you so much.

‘Although I am lucky to have my mum here with me today I can’t help but feel so overwhelmed and full of emotions that both Rio and the children don’t have their mums with them today.

‘We are living in a house full of grief trying to get through and days like today just feel so tough. Celebrate your mother’s and keep them close.’

… By the looks on their faces I’m in trouble 😂👀🐶 @fiveuk
