Former Top Gear presenter Paddy shared a photo of his and Christine’s feet as they lounged on the sofa. The picture showed the pair’s feet held up against each other as they tried to work out who had a higher “arch”.

He captioned the post: “Strong high arch game in our house but there can be only one! Who takes the [crown] and the Pes Cavus bragging rights? Mum or Dad? School boy error leaving my socks on. #feet #higharches.”

Fans were delighted to see the exes still share a close bond. One person commented: “You both have such a lovely relationship regardless of whether it’s just as parents or as husband and wife which is no one else’s buissness.

You two are such an amazing example for your children.

Another fan wrote: “You two are such an amazing example for your children. Whatever you do kids come first and you two are freaking winning.”
