Joanna Gosling sparked romance rumors with Colin Firth, after the couple were pictured on a walk together in west London

The 49-year-old presenter was seen bundled up in a coat, gloves, hat and rubber boots as she took a walk with the Pride and Prejudice star last week

Although Firth’s rep declined to comment, the 60-year-old actor has reportedly been single since separating from his 22-year-old wife Livia Giuggioli last year

Gosling has worked at the BBC since 1999, after stints with Capital Radio Central Television and Sky News

She first worked the night time slot on BBC News 24 before moving to the morning shift, then to the weekend evening slot

Gosling appeared on BBC Breakfast in 2006, before moving to host the BBC News Channel evening shift

As of 2013, she has been visible on the channel between 11am and 2pm Monday through Thursday, and presented the Victoria Derbyshire Show, covering for the regular host

Gosling is also a writer and wrote Simply Wonderwoman – a guide for employed workers with children – in 2011

His second book, Homemade Simple: Stylish, Practical Makes for Living and Giving, was published two years later

Gosling was married to Sir Craig Oliver for 18 years before their divorce in 2014 and has three daughters together – Maya, Iona and Honor

The exes met at the BBC, where Sir Craig worked as a reporter before working at 10 Downing Street

Sir Craig is the former communications director of David Cameron and led the official Remain campaign in the EU referendum

He is now reportedly dating Lucy Thomas, deputy director of the Britain Stronger In campaign, and lives in an apartment near Gosling’s house in west London, where she lives with her daughters

Giuggioli, 51, is the assistant to an Italian producer, turned producer, and the founder of the sustainable development consultancy Eco-Age

She met Bridget Jones’ diary star Firth after his split from actress Meg Tilly – with whom he shares her 30-year-old son Will – and they married in 1997

The couple divide their time between London and Umbria in Italy and have two sons together, Luca, 19, and Matteo, 17

In 2018, it emerged that Giuggioli had a year-long affair with his childhood friend Marco Brancaccia, following his temporary separation from Firth

The relationship became public after Guiggioli accused Brancaccia of harassing her when she reunited with her husband

A statement released at the time read: “A few years ago Colin and Livia privately made the decision to go their separate ways Meanwhile, Livia briefly got involved with former friend M Brancaccia

“The Firths have since reunited Subsequently, Mr. Brancaccia waged a frightening campaign of harassment for several months, much of which is documented “

Journalist Brancaccia denied the allegations, telling The Times: “We were in a romantic relationship, she wanted to leave Colin for me”

However, a year later, Firth and Giuggioli confirmed that they had separated after 22 years of marriage

A statement said: “They maintain a close friendship and remain united in their love for their children”

Firth lives in their family home in Chiswick with their sons, while his ex-wife has reportedly spent much of his time since the split in Italy

However, the exes remain friends, and Giugglioli – who still uses his married name on social media – wished the actor a happy 60th birthday on Instagram in September, sharing a photo of him dressed up as Elton John on the Kingsman shoot

She wrote: “60th and I can’t feel it 😍 happy birthday to the best criminal partner ever (for 25+ years)”
