Joanna Gosling sparked romantic rumors with Colin Firth after the two were pictured walking together in West London

The 49-year-old news presenter was seen bundled up in a coat, gloves, hat and rubber boots last week while walking the Pride and Prejudice star

While Firth’s agent refused to comment, the 60-year-old actor is believed to have been single since splitting up with 22-year-old wife Livia Giuggioli last year

Gosling has been with the BBC since 1999 after working for Capital Radio Central Television and Sky News

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

Gosling performed at the BBC Breakfast in 2006 before hosting the evening shift on the BBC News Channel

Since 2013, she has been on the channel Monday through Thursday between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and has presented the Victoria Derbyshire Show for the usual host

Gosling is also a writer, and in 2011 she wrote Simply Wonderwoman – A Guide for Busy Working Women with Children

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

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

The exes are believed to have met at the BBC, where Sir Craig worked as a journalist before working at 10 Downing Street

Sir Craig is David Cameron’s former communications director and was the head of the official Remain campaign during the EU referendum

He is reportedly now dating Lucy Thomas, Assistant Director of Britain Stronger In, and lives in an apartment near Gosling’s house in West London, where she lives with her daughters

Giuggioli, 51, is assistant to an Italian producer, became a producer and founder of the sustainability consultancy Eco-Age

She met Bridget Jones’ diary star Firth after breaking up with actress Meg Tilly, with whom he shares 30-year-old son Will, and they tied the knot in 1997

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

In 2018, it was revealed that Giuggioli had a year-long affair with her childhood friend, Marco Brancaccia, after temporarily breaking up with Firth

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

In a statement issued at the time, it says: “A few years ago Colin and Livia made the decision privately to separate. During this time, Livia was briefly introduced to her former friend Brancaccia

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

Journalist Brancaccia denied the allegations, telling The Times: “We were romantically involved, she wanted to leave Colin for me”

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

In a statement it says: “They maintain a close friendship and remain united in their love for their children”

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

The exes remain friends, however, and Giugglioli, who still uses her married name on social media, wished the actor a happy 60s on Instagram in September Birthday and shared a picture of him as Elton John on the set of Kingsman

She wrote: “60 and don’t feel it – happy birthday to the best crime partner ever (for 25 years and by count) ’
