Ulrika smiled radiantly in the photo and looked relaxed as she donned green pants and a black T-shirt.

The blonde beauty wore her shoulder-length locks down and seemed to have only the lightest hint of makeup.

While he doesn’t say when the photo was taken, David’s long locks suggest the photo was taken during the height of his football career in the 1990s.

Sharing the image on Instagram Stories, Ulrika wrote cheekily: ‘Back when @davidginolaofficial and I were a couple’

Looking back, the presenter, 53, showed off her old-fashioned look in the photo, believed to be taken in the 90s, before sharing a selfie of her podcast recording on Friday.

David played football in France before moving to Newcastle United in 1995. He then played for Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and Everton before retiring in 2002.

After his playing career ended, David appeared in several short films and appeared on shows such as Channel 4’s Coach Trip in 2006. He now often comments on football matches.

David and Ulrika teamed up on Comic Relief Does Fame Academy in 2003, but David dropped out and was replaced by Doon Mackichan.

The nice throwback comes after Ulrika’s daughter Bo – who has a congenital heart defect – was rushed to hospital.

Former Gladiators presenter Ulrika is now waiting for the latest test results for her sick daughter after being hospitalized overnight, with Ulrika given hourly reports on its progress.

Bo has been in and out of the hospital over the years as a result of her condition – she was born with a defective double inlet left ventricle, a birth defect that affects the valves and chambers of the heart.

As a baby, she had to undergo life-saving heart surgery, but Ulrika did not reveal why Bo had to be hospitalized.

Ulrika told fans about her sleepless night on Tuesday while waiting for the doctors’ message.

She said, “If your plan for a good night’s sleep calls for it, Pete Tong goes. Hourly, daughter updates from the hospital. Finally discharging will be updated later. Thank you for your kind messages. ‘

She later told fans Bo whom she calls ‘oldest ungrateful woman’, who was no longer in the hospital and that ‘nothing has been resolved yet’.

She also shared a picture of Boo saying, ‘Miss you stoopid.’

At the time, MailOnline contacted a spokesperson for Ulrika Jonsson for comment.

Last month Ulrika called Bo a “warrior” when she went for a health check.

The TV host shared a series of snaps on her Instagram stories of Bo lying with the doctor while getting a liver scan.

The former Celebrity Big Brother star posted a photo of the couple sitting in the waiting room together calling Bo her ‘CHD Warrior’.

In another, Bo was seen in the doctor’s office wearing a face mask with Ulrika captioned: ‘Gonna be a loooong day’.

Ulrika and Bo had to spend part of the day apart when the star bit her daughter in the waiting room with a white bandage.

In another photo, Bo rested her head against her mother’s shoulder.

The former Gladiators star captioned the post: ‘Always her shoulder (and everything else) #ungratefuls’.

Ulrika had shared her joy and relief after her oldest daughter received a Covid vaccine in February.

Ulrika wrote: ‘For all with full hearts, functioning hearts, borrowed hearts, broken hearts and biologically defective hearts, this has made my heart sing.

‘Ungrateful [the playful name she gives her children] has been vaccinated with a congenital heart defect. And breathe ….. ‘
