Sky News’ under fire political editor Beth Rigby has been spotted for the first time since she was hauled off air for breaking coronavirus restrictions.
The journalist, 44, broke cover to grab a coffee with husband Angelo Acanfora in London this morning.
She was seen checking her phone and Mr Acanfora carried a tennis racket as they walked around Clissold Park in Stoke Newington.
Ms Rigby and reporter Inzamam Rashid were taken off air for three months after a meal for presenter Kay Burley’s birthday at the Century Club last Saturday.
Miss Burley was taken off air for six months following an internal investigation by Sky News.
She had visited a restaurant in central London with nine other diners then used a different restaurant’s bathroom after the 11pm curfew.
Miss Burley then continued the party at her Knightsbridge home along with three others.

Ms Rigby and Mr Acanfora wore similar green parkas, chinos and trainers as they walked around the north east London park this morning.
They walked up a flight of steps towards a coffee shop and Ms Rigby lent against a wall outside while her husband headed inside.
A number of pictures showed her typing on her phone, despite a social media blackout since the scandal broke.
