Vernon Kay cut a stylish figure in a smart grey suit jacket at at LUXE fashion event in London on Thursday.
The TV star, 49, posed with friend Ken Parker at the event to celebrate pre-loved luxury fashion and opted for a smart casual look set off by a light grey dinner jacket.
The Family Fortunes host also wore a jet black shirt which he had left open at the top and swept his long dark locks away from his face.
The outing for the former model comes just hours after it emerged that figures for his BBC Radio 2 show had fallen by more than one million.
Vernon took over from radio legend Ken Bruce earlier this year, but on Thursday it was reported that the show was pulling in 6.9m listeners, according to data released today by Rajar, considerably less than the 8.2 million who tuned in to hear the old host.

The figures follow a backlash among listeners after older stars including Bruce, Steve Wright and Paul O’Grady were shipped out for younger DJs like Scott Mills, Rylan Clark and Michelle Visage.
Ken admitted feeling like he had been ‘taken for granted’ when he left his Radio 2 show earlier this year. And his former BBC bosses will no doubt be kicking themselves after his new station – Greatest Hits – gained 800,000 weekly listeners since June.
The commercial network, which also counts ex-Radio 2 veteran Simon Mayo as a presenter, has seen impressive growth of 76.9 per cent year on year, the biggest across all stations.
Bruce said: ‘I’m delighted to hear that Greatest Hits Radio has welcomed more and more listeners.
‘Much like myself, it’s great to know more people are enjoying the very best music from the 70s, 80s and 90s as well as my fellow broadcasters such as Simon Mayo and Jackie Brambles.’
Meanwhile, Radio 2 has struggled to entice back the million listeners lost following Ken’s departure.
Upon taking the job over the summer, Vernon insisted that he just wanted to ‘be himself’ on the radio and that numbers were ‘not that important’ to the station.

Our survey says: Vernon Kay’s mid-morning show pulled in 6.9m listeners, according to data released by Rajar.
He told The Sunday Times: ‘ It would be foolish to replicate Ken — Ken is Ken. My parents said, ‘Just be yourself.’ I did Radio 1 and I never worried about the numbers because they didn’t worry the boss.
‘I did commercial network Radio X and did worry because numbers did worry the boss. Numbers are not as important to me as people assume.
‘I like my job. I say hello to nearly seven million people. It’s bonkers. People say Radio 2 this and Radio 2 that, but the station gets 13.5 million listeners a week.
