Susannah Constantine, 57, looks incredible in a red swimsuit as she leaps off Elton John’s luxury yacht while holidaying with him and his family in Monaco
They’ve been close friends and he’s even godfather to her daughter Esme – so it’s no wonder that Susannah Constantine was aboard Elton John’s yacht on Sunday.
The What Not To Wear star, 57, looked incredible wearing a red swimsuit as she leaped off the Rocketman’s luxury boat in Monaco.
Elton, 72, could also be seen enjoying the sunshine, clad in his beloved Gucci. He wore a red satin shirt which had the words: ‘Blind for love’ embroidered on the back in yellow stitching.

He teamed it with a pair of Gucci logo shorts and trainers by the high end fashion house and of course, he wore a pair of statement sunglasses.
Susannah has spoken about her friendship with Elton in the past, saying: ‘Elton is a really great friend and he always sends us white orchids on our birthdays,’ says Susannah, nodding at a bowl he had bought her.
She revealed during a 2017 interview, that her daughter Esme, 18, (whose godfather is Elton), had been at his house, helping to streamline his dressing room because he was selling armfuls off for charity.

Also on the boat over the weekend was Elton’s husband David Furnish, 55, and their sons Zachary, eight, and Elijah, six.
Zachary could be pictured jumping in after Susannah as he showed off some serious bravery as he made a splash in the sea, while wearing his goggles.
Elton has been joined by friends Neil Patrick Harris and his husband David Burtka, as well as their twins – Harper and Gideon, both eight, for their seventh yearly trip together.
Last year, Elton announced his plans to retire to spend more time with his family, saying: ‘Having had children and seeing how much joy they brought to us, I thought, “Do you know what? I want to spend more time with them.”
‘”I have to spend more time with them. I’m their father, David is their father. They give us so much joy. I don’t want to miss too much.”
He added: ‘It was a pretty easy decision, to be honest with you. I just never thought that fatherhood could bring me so much joy, and I came to fatherhood late in the day, but it’s been one of the miracles of my life.
‘It seems to me something happens in my life every now and then which propels me to a different stage. This is a different stage and it’s probably the most wonderful stage.’
