They have communicated via a television link and have taken social distancing while working during the lockdown.

But Andi Peters and Phillip Schofield were reunited over the weekend as the ITV stars enjoyed lunch together.

And roving match reporter Andi, 50, looked fit when his massive biceps nearly broke his shirt sleeves in photos shared on Instagram by This Morning host Phillip Schofield, 59.

The broadcaster wrote: ‘Finally! A good catch up with @andipeters,’

The couple looked happy to be in each other’s company as they smiled at their restaurant table.

Former Live & Kicking frontman Andi, who presents the match spots for ITV on daytime television, had his huge arms on display, proving he’s clearly a fan of the gym.

He looked smart but casual in a sky blue polo shirt while wearing dark jeans.

Phillip wore a light white sweater that was a similar shade to his hair, and the couple smiled at the camera before eating their meal.

Andi rose to fame with the BBC in 1989 when he co-hosted the children’s show The Broom Cupboard with Phillip and Andy Crane.

He was accompanied by hand puppet Ed the Duck wearing a bright green mohican.

The star spent four years on the program before leaving to host Live & Kicking with Emma Forbes and John Barrowman.

He has also appeared on The O-Zone and Top of the Pops, and has been narrating The Big Reunion on ITV since 2013.

Piers Morgan revealed last year that Andi was quietly raking in the money behind the scenes.

Before leaving Good Morning Britain in March, Piers, 55, left Andi feeling ‘uncomfortable’ last October, when he revealed that the veteran TV personality is secretly ‘filthy rich’.

Andi saw his usual appearance on the popular ITV show to promote the latest competition, where £500,000 is up for grabs for one lucky viewer.

However, amid the ensuing chatter between the presenters, Piers revealed that Andi owns the company promoting the lucrative competitions.

Lifestyle: Andi said, 'You know what?  Me, Susanna, we live a very normal lifestyle.  But Piers, he definitely lives the lifestyle of the rich and famous and you can do the same too.

Presenting the match outside Essex’s Castle Hedingham, standing next to a classic Bentley, Andi fanned the flames as he kicked off the exchange with Piers, who was sitting in the studio alongside co-host Susanna Reid.

He said, ‘You know what? Me, Susanna, we live a very normal lifestyle. But Piers, he definitely lives the lifestyle of the rich and famous and you can do the same too.”

Not one to pick up the playful jab lying down, Piers hit back: “I’m telling you, let’s go back to Peters for a moment. Hey Peters, what’s your net worth?’

Piers continued, “People just think you show up in your little orange jacket and present the promos. No! He owns the company that makes the promos.

“So if you call me rich and famous, you’re filthy rich, aren’t you Peters, are you Peters?”

“That car is one of your ten,” Piers continued, jokingly. ‘That castle is yours! That jacket, four grand. Versace jacket. Just remember that every promo you watch… kerching, kerching.’

Andi tried in vain to laugh off the chatter that had backfired on him, saying of his fortune, “We’re not talking about that,” before adding “this is awkward.”

Apparently happy to silence his colleague in the hilarious exchange, Piers concluded, “There you go. That stops him from talking about my wealth.’
