Chanelle McCoy led the way in the style stakes on Ladies' Day at the Cheltenham Festival yesterday.

The businesswoman (42), who is married to former Northern Ireland champion jockey Tony McCoy, opted for hot fuchsia tailoring as she mingled with fellow racegoers including the Queen's granddaughter, Zara Tindall.

Zara (37), who turned out in a striking purple number complete with matching hat, was also joined by her husband, Mike, her mother, the Princess Royal, and her aunt, the Duchess of Cornwall, for the second day of the racing festival.

Other celebrities watching the action included Belfast-born broadcaster Eamonn Holmes, former footballer Martin Keown, TV cook Mary Berry, model Vogue Williams and former tennis world number one Andy Murray, who attended with his wife Kim Sears.

Following a precautionary track inspection earlier in the day, racing went ahead after concerns over high winds caused by Storm Gareth.
