Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman put on an animated display dancing around at Royal Ascot

Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman put on a very animated display as they watched the races at Royal Ascot. 

Showing no signs of reigning it in, the couple looked in great spirits as they watched the races from the stands at Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire, on Wednesday.

The music mogul, 61, appeared to come into some money on day two of the races, throwing his fist in the air for a victory dance before turning round to give a friend a high five.

Despite briefly losing her composure, Lauren exuded elegance in a hot pink pencil dress that she teamed with a black fascinator. 

Keeping her accessories simple so as not to overpower the look, Lauren added some glitz with a delicate diamond bracelet and matching stud earrings. 

Meanwhile, Simon looked as dapper as ever in a three-piece suit and tails for the second day of festivities.

The couple were not joined by Sinitta on the outing, who accompanied the couple to the races on Monday.   

While Simon had a pair of binoculars in hand, it seemed he was distracted from the races by Sinitta, 52, as she animatedly talked to Lauren.

Sinitta and Simon have remained close friends for more than 30 years. The former couple first met in 1983 and dated on and off for 20 years after meeting in the Eighties,

Meanwhile, Charlotte Hawkins was seen putting on a stylish display as she also arrived for day two of Royal Ascot.

The broadcaster, 46, looked demure in a silver satin shirt dress with pretty floral embellishments, which she teamed with a salmon pink fascinator. 

Charlotte's silver frock boasted elbow-length sleeves and a flattering A-line midi skirt.

The collar of her dress featured brightly coloured flowers, which also covered the front of her waist belt.  

The presenter had her blonde tresses tucked into a stylish up-do beneath her eye-catching fascinator.

Royal Ascot is part of a list of pilot events taking place, allowing 12,000 revellers to attend, before the possible lifting of all measures to curtail the Covid-19 pandemic in July.  

Earlier this month, The Telegraph reported the Queen, 95, - an avid horse racing fan - would not attend this year's Ascot because of ongoing restrictions.   

Ascot had been planning for an attendance of 4,000 a day. The new figure will allow all those who rolled over 2020 bookings to be accommodated with a 'material but not significant' number of tickets left over, according to a track spokesperson.

The number of spectators will be well below the usual attendance of over 300,000 over the five days but the increased number was welcomed by Frankie Dettori, whose 73 royal meeting victories have only been bettered by Lester Piggott (116).    

Dettori, who was leading rider at the royal meeting for the seventh time last year, said: 'There's nothing better than Royal Ascot with people. I know it's not 60,000 (a day) but it's better than what we thought. 

'Last year I was leading rider at Royal Ascot and won three Group Ones, including the Gold Cup. To have nobody there to see any of that, it was like someone had cut my arm off.

'Those are the biggest races we've got here and I won them in front of empty grandstands. It goes without saying it wasn't the same.' 

Finishing touches: Adding a dash of glitz to her look, Charlotte slipped into a pair of jewel-embellished stilettos

Visitors to the Royal and Queen Anne enclosures have to abide by a strict dress code, which does not allow bare midriffs or strapless dresses, but for guests in the Windsor and other enclosures the rules are more relaxed. 

With the clue in the name, Royal Ascot is hugely popular with the monarchy and Her Majesty is usually a regular at the event. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, she had attended every year since ascending the throne. 

Last year, dedicated Royal Ascot showed off their finest frocks and fascinators while celebrating the fourth day of the racing meet at home.
