The forecast is HOT! Shirtless Steve Jacobs, 54, flaunts his abs on a beach stroll with girlfriend Amanda King… after the Today show weatherman struck up a romance at the school gate
Former Today show weather presenter Steve Jacobs enjoyed a leisurely walk in Sydney’s Bronte on Monday with his girlfriend, Amanda King.
The 54-year-old showed off his surprisingly buff torso by going shirtless on the stroll.
Steve looked tanned and toned as he ambled down the footpath in nothing more than a pair of patterned boardshorts.

For sun safety, he wore sunglasses and a visor. The Channel Nine star also carried a white T-shirt, which he later put on.
Steve was joined by his latest squeeze, whom he met at his daughter’s primary school in 2019.
Mother-of-two Amanda looked sporty in a pair of bike shorts, a white sleeveless tank top, sunglasses and a visor.

Steve and Amanda first sparked rumours that they were dating back in 2019. They reportedly met as single parents at the school gate.
On October 26, they were pictured looking flirty during a boozy picnic in Bronte Park.
Steve later told Daily Mail Australia their relationship was strictly platonic.

‘Sorry to disappoint, but there’s nothing romantic happening between the two of us,’ he said. ‘We’re great mates.’
Steve was previously married to TV presenter Rose Jacobs, who is the mother of his two daughters, Isabella, nine, and Francesca, seven, but they separated in 2017.
They split just months after relocating to Vanuatu in what friends described at the time as a ‘last-ditch attempt’ to save their seven-year marriage.

‘I think there were a few people who sensed something was up when they moved to Vanuatu,’ a friend told Daily Mail Australia in 2018.
‘The sea change was basically a last-ditch attempt to make things work, but it wasn’t to be unfortunately.’
Steve famously quit the Today show in 2016 to work on his marriage, before returning to the network in 2017 as a weather presenter on Weekend Today.

He rejoined the main Today show for its 2019 relaunch, but was let go later in the year and replaced by Tim Davies.
In April last year, he joined Nine’s radio station Magic 1278, hosting a new breakfast program focusing on music from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s.
Steve returned to present the weather on the Today show for just one week in December.
