amanda steps out with Katherine's ex-fiance

HOW long can they keep denying it.

Despite insisting they are just friends, presenter Amanda Byram has been caught getting sweaty with Welsh TV star Gethin Jones.

The pair stepped out in the LA sunshine for an afternoon work-out.

And the Dubliner appeared to have no problem cosying up to him in public.

A fan of working out, Amanda displayed her impressive figure in a lime green sports bra which she teamed with a pair of cropped work-out pants and aviator sunglasses.



The 40-year-old went make-up free and wore her long brown locks tied back in a pony.

The rumoured couple were snapped on the Stairs in Santa Monica, a popular work-out spot with locals and celebrities. They also paused for some weight training and resistance exercises as well as climbing up the steep steps.

At one point, the 35-year-old placed his hands on Amanda's waist as she lifted some dumbbells. The Castleknock presenter, who divides her time between London and LA has been in sunny Los Angeles for the last two weeks.

Jones, who was once engaged to singer Katherine Jenkins, went for a laid-back look in a pair of Wales shorts, which he teamed with a backwards baseball cap and blue trainers.



Over the past few weeks, Total Wipeout host Amanda has posted a series of snaps on social media taken with the Welsh Daybreak host. She also tweeted over Christmas: 'THANK YOU Gethin Jones for secretly making my casa Christmassy for my return.'

However last week, the former Swan host said they "are just good friends".

A spokesperson for the presenter said they would not be making any comment on her personal life.

She split from fiance Craig McMullen in 2011 and has been living life to the full ever since.

Good friends with MTV starlet and Bray native Laura Whitmore, the pair have enjoyed nights out on the UK social scene and get-togethers in Australia.

Last year, Amanda said she was happy on her own and in no rush to settle down, despite the pressure from others.
