Faryal looked effortlessly glamorous in a stunning white satin gown complete with extravagant beaded belt detailing, a headscarf and a dramatic train.

The couple looked as close as ever as they posed arm-in-arm on the red carpet while smiling for the cameras.

They joined a whole host of A-list guests at the closing night of the festival, including the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Halle Berry and Freida Pinto.

It comes after Amir praised his 'forgiving' wife Faryal after he was publicly embroiled in several cheating scandals.

The couple recently hit a rocky patch in their relationship when a former BBC presenter accused the sportsman of making sexual advances towards her after they appeared at an event together.

The pair were also said to have separated and they lived apart over the summer after he reportedly asked a bridal model to send him raunchy pictures. 

Speaking about his wife of 10 years - with whom he shares children Lamaisah, nine, Alayna, five and three-year-old Muhammad - Amir said in September: 'Ah she’s brilliant, yeah, she's good… Well, she is the big boss.'

He added on the They Don’t Teach This At School with Myleene Klass podcast: 'I always get told off because I do silly things and I got caught doing silly things and obviously I'm human at the end of it.'

Amir continued: 'She's very forgiving, but I think you know if you keep on pushing someone it’s going to get too much, she’s gonna say you know what, get away from me. 

'I can see that she loves me to bits and she's really caring and stuff, because honestly speaking there's a lot of stuff that she does behind the scenes that people don't see.

'Like for example, you know, she set my training camp up, she set the contracts, the lawyers she deals with, the accountants she deals with, she deals with all the bills that we have in the UK and all that. 

'We have this payment to make, this payment to make. She does everything. I don’t have no house headache, she takes care of all that, like all the admin work, because I can't do that. 

'But it's good that she's taken the pressure away from me on that sense... And you know, sometimes you need someone like a good backbone, and there's someone there for you. Someone to take that pressure away from you.’

Amir, whose marriage has been dogged by a number of cheating claims, allegedly contacted a model named Sumaira, 25, on May 6, three days after he was shown being evicted from the pre-recorded I'm A Celebrity... South Africa.

Sumaira claimed they spoke on the phone, during which he attempted to explain why he had contacted her, saying that 'he and Faryal were not properly together and that it was a bit of a business arrangement'.

She claimed he spun a 'sob story', saying that he was retired from boxing and Faryal spent a lot of time in London.

Amir admitted he 'regretted' messaging Sumaira, revealing he'd contacted her out of 'boredom', but insisted he was not cheating as it was 'just a few texts'.

Asked if he would attend therapy sessions, he told The Sun: 'That question hasn't been brought up before. But maybe I do need help to stop me from messaging other women. I am willing to go to ­therapy to stop me sending texts to women who aren't my wife.

The sportsman said Faryal was 'disgusted' at the news of him messaging another woman, with her telling him: 'If you have a diamond at home, why do you want to mess around with rocks and stones?'

Amir admitted his behaviour was 'not nice' and noted that his children will one day read about what happened, which he said will 'upset them'.

Faryal posted a lengthy statement in response to her husband's text exchanges with model Sumaira at the time.

Stating that she 'refuses to play out my marriage publicly,' Faryal wrote on Instagram that 'after a long week of accusations, slander and harassment I have decided it is now time to address the situation that has unfolded.'

Faryal described Sumaira's actions as a 'hate campaign' and has denied that she is 'responsible for Sumaira's current mental state.'

Faryal went on to state that 'the whole world is aware of his track record' and insists that Sumaira must have been aware he was married when she sent him revealing photos.
