Hunky Blue singer Duncan, 39, was dressed up for the occasion in a black silk shirt and contrasting white trousers and trainers.

The Hollyoaks star flaunted his tanned chest by leaving a couple of buttons undone and rolled up his sleeves to showcase his tattooed arms.

His handsome partner happily joined him for pictures, dressed in a smart white shirt and chinos, setting of his casual look with a pair of dark sunglasses.

Duncan, who has a 12-year-old daughter Tianie-Fin, recently appeared on Loose Women to share that coming out as gay was the "best thing he ever did" after years of "living a lie."

The Hollyoaks actor, who's character Ryan Knight has also been on a journey with his sexual orientation, said he wanted to have acceptance after carrying a burden on his shoulders for years.

He also received a video message from co-star Adam Rickitt, who he shared a steam snog with on screen recently.

Duncan described how he felt worried about coming out because of possible negative reactions from his friends, family and the fans.

He said: "To be honest it was something I didn’t feel comfortable sharing with the world but I thought doing a story was the right thing to do. After years of hiding the secret inside me I wanted to be who I am and I wanted acceptance.

"I carried this burden on my shoulders for years, I was worried about what the fans would think, family and friends, and I was living a lie really."

The Blue singer added: "Hollyoaks are very pro LGBT and do lots of storylines like this. It’s a great show to be a part of as they do tackle these things."
