It’s Wimbledon day nine which means more glam celeb arrivals at the tennis tournament.

Today saw the likes of David Walliams and Oti Mabuse don their glad rags to watch the action unfold on the court, with Fleur East, Matt Edmondson, and royals Prince William and Kate Middleton also in attendance.

Children’s author David, 50, arrived with his mum Kathleen, whom he doted on as they sat next to one another in the stands.

Looking dapper in his navy suit, David was seen clapping while his mum did the same, with a beaming smile on her face.

As the mother and son were leaving, the Britain’s Got Talent judge helped Kathleen – who is married to David’s dad Peter – put her jacket on, which was a white one that complemented her monochrome dress.

Meanwhile, Strictly Come Dancing star Oti Mabuse brought the glamour in a black and pale pink sleeveless dress.

The Masked Dancer judge, 31, looked radiant as she struck a pose for cameras, accessorising her look with a black clutch bag and gold jewellery, which included a ‘Leo’ necklace.

Elsewhere, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made their first Wimbledon appearance of the year with Kate giving us major outfit envy in a blue and white polka dot maxi dress.

She sat with her husband William in the royal box, appearing to have a whale of a time as she cheered on players.

The couple also chatted with comedian David and his mum, shaking hands with the pair to greet them before taking their seats in front.

Other day nine arrivals included former X Factor contestant Fleur East, who sported a seriously chic green and black ensemble with her hair styled in its natural do.

BBC Radio 1 presenter Matt Edmondson scrubbed up nicely as well in a brown suit, nailing the smart/casual balance with a t-shirt underneath and a pair of Converse.

The ninth day of the championships saw tennis legend Novak Djokovic reign supreme by booking himself a spot in the semi-final spot after defeating Jannik Sinner over five sets.

Top seed Djokovic, who has won the last three Wimbledon men’s singles titles, went two sets down and looked on course to crash out in spectacular fashion to world No.13 Sinner, 20, in the last eight but produced an incredible comeback.

He could be set for a mouth-watering final against second-seed Rafael Nadal, if both men make it that far, in what would be a repeat of their Roland Garros semi-final at the end of May.
