By Sally Wardle

Sir David Attenborough, American Vogue editor-in-chief Dame Anna Wintour and Bee Gees co-founder Sir Barry Gibb were among a host of stars in the royal box on men's semi-final day at Wimbledon.

Comedian Michael McIntyre, actor Damian Lewis, astronaut Tim Peake, Poldark star Aidan Turner and adventurer Bear Grylls took their seats on Centre Court as the tennis tournament heated up yesterday and spectators enjoyed temperatures of up to 26C.

The final four men - Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, and John Isner and Kevin Anderson - battled it out for a place in tomorrow's singles final after the shock exit of fan-favourite Roger Federer.

Meanwhile, the Duchess of Sussex will cheer on Serena Williams in the women's final against Germany's Angelique Kerber today.

Williams will take centre stage in her bid for an eighth Wimbledon singles title. Meghan will be joined by the Duchess of Cambridge.
