Barney Walsh and his former Miss World girlfriend Stephanie Del Valle ‘go Instagram official’

Bradley Walsh’s son Barney has gone ‘Instagram official’ with his new girlfriend, former Miss World Stephanie Del Valle.

Earlier in the month, Stephanie, 24, shared a sweet photo of herself and Barney, also 24, cosying up together in Portugal while a stunning sunset loomed behind them.

The Mirror notes that Barney and Stephanie’s new post has ‘confirmed’ their relationship and that the pair met when Barney hosted a Miss World competition in 2017.

Stephanie beamed from ear to ear in the snap and looked stylish in an all-black look.

Budding actor Barney could barely contain his joy and cut a dapper figure in jeans and a black bomber jacket.

Touching upon their relationship, a source told The Sun last week that they ‘started out as mates’ but are ‘now very loved-up and recently enjoyed a winter holiday to Portugal’.

They added that 2022 is set to be ‘a big year for them’.

It follows reports that Barney’s dad Bradley, 61, is undertaking a gruelling new fitness regime after hiring a personal trainer to put him through his paces after noticing his declining fitness when attempting hair-raising extreme sports in the new series of ITV’s Breaking Dad.

The light-hearted programme, in which The Chase host and his son Barney travel abroad to try out the scariest bungee jumps, bobsleigh rides and all manner of other terrifying escapades, returned this week for a fourth run.

In the show’s recent episode, thrill-seeker Barney encourage his skittish dad to overcome his reticence and try out adrenaline-fuelled challenges, the higher the altitude the better because Bradley is scared of heights.

Their latest journey, a 3,000-mile jaunt from Croatia to the Arctic Circle in their trusty motorhome, kicked off with another fright for Bradley. Barney signed them up for a go on a rope swing out over the pitch at the Poljud football stadium in Split – the rope is tied to the roof, 125ft above the ground.

Bradley, who was too frightened to follow Barney’s bungee jump off the 720ft-high platform at the top of the Contra Dam in Switzerland in the last series, nearly backed out of the rope swing too but eventually took the plunge.

‘Yeah, I hated that,’ he admitted. ‘In the final edit they had to bleep out a lot of the swearing. I honestly was petrified.’

Barney chipped in, trying to put a positive spin on the experience. ‘Yes, but if nothing else, that’s a cool thing to say you’ve done,’ he said.

Bradley shoots back, ‘Yeah, but on my epitaph are they going to say, ‘Here lies the idiot who jumped off the football stadium’? I don’t think that means a lot to people!’

In the new, six-part series the pair try out plenty more white-knuckle adventures.

After Croatia, where they also free-dive and ride aqua bikes (like jet skis), they hurled themselves down a bobsleigh track in Norway (‘Your head feels like a nail in a tin being rattled very violently,’ is Bradley’s verdict) and learned to surf in a storm in the Arctic Circle (‘Even the experts said, ‘I would never come out on days like this!’)
