Jack Grealish has been spotted with his girlfriend Sasha Attwood for the first time in public in three months – and after a cheating scandal erupted engulfing both him and alleged mistress Emily Atack.
The 26-year-old Manchester City player and his 25-year-old model girlfriend were wrapped up warm as they attended Winter Wonderland in Central London on Wednesday night.
While the couple were seemingly there to put on a united front, the atmosphere certainly looked chilly between the pair as temperatures plummeted towards freezing.
Standing near some railings, there was a noticeable physical distance between Sasha and Jack as they braced themselves for an evening of fun and frivolity.
Jack also looked reasonably stone faced and solemn as he turned to face his childhood sweetheart – who he has been romantically linked to since he was 16.
They were joined by Jack’s parents Kevin and Karen, as well as his two sisters Kiera and Holly – according to eyewitnesses at the festive fairground in London’s Hyde Park.
However, once firmly inside the grounds, Sasha flashed a winning smile while Jack himself was hidden behind a medical mask – as per intensifying Covid restrictions in the UK.
The duo walked side-by-side as they sipped hot drinks at the wintery attraction – while Jack opted to tackle some of the rides without his girlfriend.
Snaps showed the sportsman on one rollercoaster sat beside a member of his party that was dressed in a puffy white coat.
While other snaps showed Jack – wearing white himself – sat behind Sahsa, who attended the fairground wearing head-to-toe black.
While the couple did link their arms while walking among the crowds at one point during their evening.
After their fun at the fair, the couple and their family members headed to the nearby Nusr-Et restaurant – famously owned by the Salt Bae chef Nusret Gökçe.
The evening of indulgence comes weeks after Jack was dramatically linked to 31-year-old comedy actress Emily, sparking accusations of unfaithfulness on the part of the midfielder.
Emily protested ignorance when it comes to the fact that the sportsman has been romantically linked to the same woman for the past 10 years.
Reports suggested the TV star had no idea he was involved with his childhood sweetheart – while other reports suggested he had appeared on a dating app, thereby reasonably leading women to believe he was available for the taking.
Jack has attempted to silence the rumours about his love life and alleged cheating.
Taking aim at headlines last month, the star wrote on Instagram : “Please don’t believe everything you read in the newspapers” alongside a smiling emoji and handshake emoji.
“The 2 biggest lies in newspapers… ‘a source said’ ‘a close pal said’,” Jack added, concluding with a snoozing face and a laughing emoji.
Meanwhile, Emily was forced to deny she had become engaged to Jack as fan speculation went into overdrive when followers on social media claimed to see a ring on her wedding finger.
The unamused TV star hit back swiftly at the speculation, replying to a comment to state: “No, it’s on my right hand.”
