Richard was seen waving with both hands alongside Mindy, 57, and Carol, 62.

The former Countdown star posted about her delight at meeting the pair describing them as "my old muckers".

Carol, who was in one of the many VIP areas, also rubbed shoulders with comedian Jack Whitehall and former athlete Brendan Foster.
