Meanwhile, Stuart kept casual in a grey t-shirt, paired with a leather jacket and dark blue jeans.

They were seen with a female friend in tow, with the three of them smiling as they had a catch up.

An insider told the MailOnline: “Poor Kevin is heartbroken. It’s making it very difficult at Strictly as all the dancers knew but Kevin did not want to accept that his marriage is over. 

“But sadly the writing is on the wall.”

Karen is said to have introduced Stuart to friends, with a source telling The Sun after they saw them out together: “Karen and her new bloke certainly didn’t seem to be hiding anything. They were out together with friends and looked relaxed and happy.”

“But there was no hiding in corners or avoiding being spotted. They didn’t seem worried at all about the controversy about being seen together.”

The day before, the 27 year old was photographed leaving Karen’s London home moments before her.
