Wimbledon goes on, which means the celeb arrivals do too, with the likes of Sir Cliff RichardLorraine Kelly, and Stephen Fry among those who scrubbed nicely for today’s matches.

For day eight of the tournament at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, the stars donned their happy rags in what was Sir Cliff’s first appearance after his surprising appearance in court last week.

The singer let fans ‘crawl’ after he had a rendition of his track Summer Holiday out of the stands, with some viewers saying the event had an ‘early turn’.

‘I always wanted to go to Wimbledon, but really scared it would be if Cliff Richard did acapella again. Not worth the risk, ‘tweeted one person following the performance, which was part of Wimbledon’s 100th anniversary celebration.

But, it seems Sir Cliff refuses to let the haters rain down on his parade as he arrives Monday with a radiant smile on his face, ready to watch the action.

The 81-year-old spent his years in a super-cool snakeskin jacket, which he paired with a striped gray shirt and black pants.

He also wore a red rose on his lapel, waving happily at cameras as he walked to his seat.

Also present was ITV presenter Lorraine, who looked radiant in a blue and white summer dress.

The Scottish TV icon during the day was all smiles in her floating coat, which had a playful lemon print around it.

With her was actor Stephen, who was his usual adorable self in a tan three-piece suit, paired with a blue shirt and fun tie.

Last but not least, we had Max Harwood, star of the hit musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie. He looked super refined in a pinstriped shirt and bow tie, with a cream sweater vest over the top.

On the eighth day of the tennis tournament, Nick Kyrgios returns to the court after his win over Stefanos Tsitsipa on Saturday.
