Ted Lasso star Hannah Waddingham certainly made an entrance when she arrived in style to day three of Wimbledon. 

The Game of Thrones actress attended the annual tennis tournament today (3rd day) and chased the grey skies away with a floral purple dress, matched with a chic white clutch bag and matching sunglasses. 

The official Wimbledon account on X shared a glamorous snap of Hannah at the front entrance of Centre Court, and wrote: “A delight to see you at #Wimbledon again, @hanwaddingham.”

Fans rushed to share their awe of the actress and her sartorial elegance, with one writing: “Looking absolutely stunning!!!”

Another said: “This is how you dress for Wimbledon!!! A-plus!”, while a third commented: “Amazing look. She is a queen!!

Hannah isn’t the only megastar to catch some attention at Centre Court, with Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl turning heads with his incredibly slick outfit choice. 

The suited and booted singer was spotted at the SW19 tennis tournament with his wife Jordyn Blum with whom he shares three daughters.

The former Nirvana star had his long hair tied back and was looking dapper in a navy suit, mustard tie, tan suede loafers and designer shades.

The king of grunge has been in London with the Foo Fighters performing their first of two stadium appearances and was joined backstage by Sir Paul McCartney and U2's Bono as they gathered to "drink the bar dry" until the small hours of the morning.

Grohl's daughter, Violet, joined the band on stage to perform Show Me How, a single from their latest album, But Here We Are.

Plus there was an emotional high when Grohl dedicated Aurora to the family of their late drummer, Taylor Hawkins. "This one's for our brother Taylor," Grohl said.

Speaking of Wimbledon, former tennis pro Sue Barker recently revealed what she misses about presenting at the hallowed sporting event. 

The former tennis star began covering Wimbledon for the BBC in 1993, and stepped back at the conclusion of the 2022 championship. 

Joining the Chris Evans Breakfast Show with webuyanycar following the release of her new book, Wimbledon: A Personal History, she said: “I was dreading it, in a way, because I thought, ‘Am I really going to miss it? What's it going to be like?’ And I miss a lot of it. I miss the people, and I miss the buzz, but I don’t miss the hours.” 

She continued: “I miss the fun of the job and the adrenaline and all of that, but the hours, oh, that was tough!”
