With her good looks and knowledge of sports, Georgie Thompson is a pin-up for many male admirers.

So after splitting with ex Declan Donnelly over a year ago, its a surprise she's been single so long.

But the Sky Sports F1 presenter, 34, may be off the market again after she brought Richard Blake as her 'date' to the Goodwood Festival Of Speed over the weekend.

Georgie, who presented Sky Sports News until late last year, joined a host of racing stars from past and present, as well as celebrity car enthusiasts at the Goodwood Festival Of Speed in West Sussex.

Wearing a polka dot black and white
dress and chic cream coat, Georgie looked she was enjoying chatting
racing at the sunny event.

The blonde TV star attended the Cartier Style et Luxe private party on the lawn of historic Goodwood House on the last of the four-day festival, which celebrated cars from across the decades.

Also in attendance were actors Rupert Penry-Jones and James Purefoy and interior designer Nicky Haslam.

The diminutive presenter and Donnelly split in April 2011 after two years of dating.

However, the pair remain good friends and co-own a racehorse together with his presenting partner Anthony McPartlin.

Georgie recently admitted she was, understandably, 'bored' of talking about her relationship with Declan.

She
told the Mail On Sunday's Live magazine: 'I split up with Dec a year
ago, and it’s a boring subject for me, but we’re still friends.

'I
couldn’t say I don’t have time for love and romance now, because that
would be a lie – it just has to be the right person. I’m very busy at
the moment, but if I met the right person then I’d juggle it all.'

Also
at Goodwood over the weekend was Sir Stirling Moss, Lewis Hamilton,
Prince Michael of Kent, Jenson Button, Chris Evans, Rupert Grint, Ronan
Keating and Hugh Bonneville.
