Angela Scanlon and her husband of three years enjoyed a rare public date night at Ascot.

While the former stylist turned tv presenter might be a force to be reckoned with on the small screen and an in-demand guest at VIP bashes, her entrepreneur husband prefers life away from the spotlight.

But the couple stepped out in style on Thursday as they celebrated Ladies Day at Royal Ascot as guests of Longines - and certainly looked the part for the occasion.

Scanlon opted for an oversized magenta suit, accessorising with a straw hat; while Roy opted for more traditional garb in a three piece suit and top hat. Both would have been subject to Ascot's strict dress code which requires women wear formal daywear, which means no hemlines should be shorter than your knee or thin-strapped tops, trouser suits needs to be full length and all one colour; jumpsuits are also permitted, but must also fall to the knee or lower (so no rompers).

"Strapless, off the shoulder, halter neck and spaghetti straps are not permitted, the website reads. "Midriffs must be covered. Fascinators are not permitted; neither are headpieces which do not have a solid base covering a sufficient area of the head."

Men are required to wear a waistcoat, tie, black shoes and a black or grey top hat within the Royal Enclosure, where the Longines area is located.

Earlier this week, the loved-up couple celebrated their third wedding anniversary with a typically self-deprecating snap on Instagram.

"Happy Anniversary" the Meath native captioned the image by photographer David McClelland of her and her beau holding hands. "Still pinching each other (and hanging around derelict glasshouses) three years on," she joked.

The couple were married in a low-key wedding in Wicklow after getting engaged on holiday in India.

Meanwhile, the Irish were out in force at Ascot as presenter Laura Whitmore stepped out in a floral Karen Millen dress and a headpiece by Molly Bunce. Milliners Martha Lynn and Suzanne Ryan were also representing their best designs on the day
