Millionaire musician Tom Fletcher was spotted out and about on Monday – the first time he’s been seen since reports emerged last week that he and his wife Giovanna claimed up to £30,000 from the government’s furlough scheme.
The McFly star, 35, and his author wife, 36, allegedly received the huge sum of cash despite being believed to be worth £8 million, while the UK was in the midst of the Covid lockdown.
Tom was spotted behind the wheel of his flashy blue car, shades on, a drink in his hand as he steered the vehicle along the sunny roads amid England’s 28 degree heat surge.

He appeared to be riding solo, in a white T-shirt with orange trim.
Reports have stated that the furlough claims were made after Giovanna was crowned the winner of last year’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!
According to government documents obtained by The Sun, Giovanna and Tom received the financial support weeks after she won the show.
It is legitimate to claim the money if you’ve put staff on furlough due to the COVID-19 crisis; however some have argued that those with a certain amount of personal wealth should bear the financial burden themselves rather than using taxpayer money.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Giovanna Fletcher for comment.
Since being crowned Queen Of The Castle in December, Giovanna’s career has gone from strength to strength.
Despite being known as an accomplished author, her career in publishing hasn’t always been plain sailing as she recently revealed that she lost 12,000 words of her new book Walking on Sunshine during the creative process.

Love and marriage: She is married to McFly star Tom who she met at the Sylvia Young Theatre School in London when she was 13 before they both found fame
MailOnline can exclusively detail the vlogger’s painful blunder ahead of the release of Jamie Laing and Francis Boulle’s Private Parts podcast episode on Friday.
Horrified Giovanna told the former Made In Chelsea stars: ‘I lost everything of the new book when my laptop died. I lost 12,000 words.’
Fortunately, Giovanna managed to recover her work thanks to a little help from her friends, discovering the document had been saved to her cloud, with the star sharing the happy news to her social media followers at the time.
The mother-of-three’s first novel, Billy and Me, was published in 2013 but her career as a wordsmith was launched thanks to an unpublished satirical project about life with her McFly star beau Tom Fletcher, 35.
However, acting was Giovanna’s first love, having attended the prestigious Sylvia Young Theatre School in London, but she insists she’s now turned her back on a stage career.
When quizzed by Jamie about how she handled rejection, the CBeebies presenter said: ‘I was always aware of how difficult it was, I was taught about rejection. I wouldn’t change anything that happened. Getting in the door is the trickiest part.’
Laugh a minute: Giovanna has turned her back on acting in favour of writing and is able to laugh about losing her work after it was recovered thanks to her friends

And when pressed over whether she’ll stick with writing or try her hand at acting again in the future, she said: ‘Writing, I’m able to create words and characters without the stress of acting.
‘But with writing you’re on your own and, when you’re acting, you’re part of a world that makes you feel alive.’
Giovanna, whose book Walking on Sunshine is set for release in November, met husband Tom in her teens at school.
The couple share three children, their sons Buzz, seven, Buddy, five, and Max, two.
Opening up on married life with the musician, she concluded: ‘Me and Tom have been married for nine years, together for 18.
Larking about: Actress-turned-author Giovanna told Jamie and Francis (pictured) she’s much happier as an author than an actress as she struggled with the rejection after auditions
Happy families: Giovanna and Tom are parents to sons Buzz, seven, Buddy, five, and Max, two
‘We met at 13 at theatre school. [There’s] the whole myth of growing up with someone and it gets too comfortable, but comfort is nice. Seeing each other as parents is a whole new thing.’
Giovanna recently revealed that she and Tom are hoping to revisit both of their honeymoon destinations to mark 10 years of marriage next year.
She told HELLO! magazine: ‘We’d like to do a trip to Jade Mountain in St Lucia just for us and go to Disney World in Florida, which was our second honeymoon destination, with the whole family.
‘Having young kids is relentless and intense so it’d be nice to have something that’s focused on us.’
Giovanna can be heard on Jamie Laing and Francis Boulle’ Private Parts podcast from Friday 4 June.
Reality queen: Giovanna won the lockdown series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here in December last year when it was filmed in a Welsh castle rather than the Australian jungle
