Thankfully, the pop tycoon remembered to put some trousers on, although his frankly bizarre choice of beachwear - flared jeans (of the high-waisted variety, of course) and shiny winkle-pickers - means we can only be so grateful.

Simon and co appear to be sticking to public parks for their dog walking after being given a stern ticking-off for taking dogs, Squiddly and Diddly, onto a dog-free beach in the city earlier this week. The family have been in Miami for the last few days, joined by Eric's granddad, Lauren's father Steven Davis.
