Has Rebecca Adlington Returned Wedding Dress Following Shock Split From Husband Harry Needs?

It looks as though Rebecca Adlington has had a wardrobe clear out, after she was reportedly spotted returning her wedding dress following the shock announcement of her split from husband Harry Needs.

The Olympic swimming sensation visited her local bridal boutique in Stockport to allegedly return the white gown.

This comes just days after publicising the end of her 18-month marriage to Harry, though the 27-year-old has insisted that they ended on “amicable” terms.

The statement posted on her website read: “It’s after much thought and sadness that we confirm our separation. It is on amicable terms and we still remain close friends.

“We move forward with respect for one another and our focus and commitment is on parenting our gorgeous daughter Summer. This will be our only comment on this private matter. Becky and Harry.”

According to the Mail Online, Rebecca was dressed down for her first appearance since the announcement, though she still wore her wedding ring on her finger.

To play devil’s advocate, it is quite plausible that she was visiting the bridal shop for an entirely different reason, especially since her sister Chloe is set to wed this year.

While offering support on the last minute preparations would (undoubtedly) be difficult for the mum-of-one, she has Dean Cain’s shoulder to cry on at the end of the day.

She was snapped with the ‘Lois & Clark: The Adventures of Superman’ star last week, after reportedly seeking comfort in his company.

The pair met in Austria, when they competed on Channel 4’s ‘The Jump’ earlier this year – and everything went downhill from there, apart from their friendship.
