First Dates’ Fred Sirieix beams with pride as daughter wins gold at Commonwealth Games

First Dates star Fred Sirieix was beaming with pride after his daughter Andrea, 17, proved victorious at the Commonwealth Games.

Andrea is competing in her first Games for England, which are currently being held in Birmingham, and performed in the Women’s Diving 10m Platform final.

The teenage diver came out on top in the preliminary round, and further secured first place in the final five dives.

Earlier today, Thursday 4 August, Andrea competed alongside another 11 contestants, after coming out in first place against 14 divers in the preliminary rounds.

She went on to secure a whopping 357.50 pints, with her teammate Lois Mae Toulson not far behind with 337.30 points.

In snaps taken of doting dad Fred, 50, in the stands, he was smiling from ear-to-ear as his daughter took to the diving board.

In another snap, the TV star was seen with his fist in the air in the wake of Andrea’s victory.

Fred has been documenting his daughter’s progress from the stands throughout the day via Instagram, and showed off how excited he was to his 812,000 followers.

Sharing a photo of the diving board, he wrote: “This it is! Let’s #goAndrea”, followed by a duck and heart emoji.

He later shared a video of Andrea chatting to BBC Sport after one of her dives.

Now, in the wake of her medal, Fred has been resharing people’s congratulatory Instagram stories that he’s been tagged in.

He also filmed Andrea’s gold-winning dive from the stands, and it’s clear to see why she came up top.

One person commented on the clip: “Just awesome”, followed by a string of clapping emojis.

Another said: “Congratulations, super proud dad moment!!”

A third went on: “Amazing diving. Huge congratulations,” as a fourth added: “Absolutely amazing. You must be very proud”.

Fred has long voiced his admiration for Andrea, even before her gold medal win.

"Fourth best diver in the world! Best daughter and best sister ever! Well done. We are all so very and unconditionally proud of you #goAndrea," the Channel 4 star wrote alongside a throwback image of him with his daughter last year.

Andrea had just qualified for the Tokyo Olympics at the time following her impressive display at the preliminaries.

Sharing a clip of Andrea diving, Fred wrote on Instagram: "So proud, happy and excited for Andrea.

"She just won her place in the @fina1908 #worldcup #diving #10m #platform semi-final and qualified for @olympics #goAndrea @teamgb @britishswimming."
