Rio Ferdinand celebrates his 40th birthday at party in Manchester with fiancee Kate Wright

The former footballer marked the milestone by throwing a bash for all his friends and family and he was supported by his bride-to-be.

Rio turned 40 on November 7, but he waited until Saturday night to host a special dinner for his loved ones.

His pals all headed to Rosso Restaurant in Manchester, and Rio was pictured arriving with former Towie star Kate, 36.

The reality beauty looked stunning in a crop top and skirt and she was still wearing a cast on her left hand after breaking two bones and dislocating her wrist.

They were joined by plenty of friends and family who were seen going into the building carrying gifts for the former sportsman.

Rio's big birthday bash comes after he celebrated his big day with a low-key meal with Kate in London.

The pair enjoyed a seafood lunch date at legendary fish restaurant Scott's and even hopped on the London Underground.

Earlier in the day, the former Towie star mocked Rio for his age, posting a picture of him as a youngster with the words: "Happy Birthday you old sod, 40 today."

Their trip came two weeks after Rio proposed on top of a skyscraper in Abu Dhabi, with Kate saying yes in front of the former footballer's three children.

Kate and Rio have been dating since late 2016, and she moved in with the ex-Manchester United star and his children Lorenz, Tia and Tate last year.

Rio shares his children with his late wife Rebecca Ellison, who passed away after a battle with breast cancer in 2015.
