He was left heartbroken when his son Samuel died from brain cancer in 2018.

But Red Symons appears to have found happiness again, after he was seen holding hands with a mystery woman, believed to be his partner, in Melbourne on Thursday.

The couple walked hand in hand down the road in Fitzroy, and the Skyhooks guitarist also held what appeared to be a jar of spread.

Red, 72, wore a white T-shirt, a long brown jacket, jeans and brown shoes.

His partner opted for a loose, patterned top, jeans, black sandals and sunglasses, and carried her belongings in a light brown handbag. 

The Hey Hey It’s Saturday star was seen laughing with his companion at one stage.

Samuel, who was first diagnosed with brain tumours at four years old, passed away from the disease at the age of 27. 

Red spoke about his journey of grief after losing his son in September last year on the Baby Boomers Guide to Life in the 21st Century podcast.

He told the hosts of his son’s death: ‘Well, simply put, you don’t get over it. You take it on board. It becomes part of your view of the world.’

Symons recalled visiting his son’s grave on his birthday.

‘I took with me something I’d seen… an idea I’d come across is you take a stone, a pebble, and you leave it at the grave site in order to somehow communicate, “Yes, my son, I’ve been here. Here, I’m leaving this memory of us here”,’ he said.

‘I was born in Brighton in England, which has a beach covered in pebbles, and I retrieved in relatively recent times a pebble from that beach. It’s red and kidney-shaped, and I thought, “I will leave that at Samuel’s grave.”‘

'Well, simply put, you don't get over it,' the 72-year-old said on the Baby Boomers Guide to Life in the 21st Century podcast. 'You take it on board. It becomes part of your view of the world'
