They’ve been going strong ever since they made their relationship official in April 2019.

And Jamie Laing and Sophie Habboo proved they’re more loved up than ever on Monday when they stepped out in London for a romantic stroll.

Walking hand in hand, the TV personalities couldn’t stop laughing as they made their way through the rainy capital, with Jamie, 32, looking dapper in a grey coat and Sophie, 27, wrapping up in a biker jacket.

Jamie offered a lesson in colour coordination, matching his trousers to his coat.

The Made In Chelsea star also wore a crisp white T-shirt, while Sophie kept the unseasonable chill at bay with a chic scarf.

Wearing her glossy hair swept up onto a ponytail, Sophie paired her leather jacket with light-wash jeans and opted for sporty white trainers, as did Jamie.

She accessorised with chunky gold hoop earrings and wore a touch of mascara for her stroll with Jamie.

Earlier in May, Jamie confirmed he had quit Made In Chelsea after admitting he’s too old for the reality show and wants to focus on his sweet business that was hit by the pandemic.

The Strictly star told MailOnline he’s ‘all or nothing’ and wouldn’t have enjoyed doing cameo appearances on the E4 series.

In an exclusive interview, Jamie, who’s the owner of confectionary company Candy Kittens, admitted while he’s loved being a cast member for ten years, ‘there’s no longer a reason for him to do the show.’

He told MailOnline: ‘It was an amazing experience and I loved it and I have a huge amount of respect for everyone that creates that show but for the moment I am stepping back from it.

‘It’s a classic statement but I am stepping back 100 per cent. I love that show but also I’m 32.

‘With a reality show you’ve got to really throw yourself into it and whatever I do I want to do it to my best ability and put my all into it and at the moment I can’t do that and I have other things I need to do.

‘I would just be on the side and truthfully I don’t enjoy doing that, I want to be in the thick of things and I can’t do that with Chelsea at the minute so for me there isn’t a reason to do it.

‘I am so all or nothing and I hate doing things halfheartedly. I got to hang out with my best friends and film and I don’t regret any of it. We were so lucky in so many ways.’

In October last year Jamie said ‘I’m definitely taking a step back’ from Made In Chelsea, now in its 21st series.

Since then he’s competed in the Strictly final and been announced as the presenter of BBC Three’s I Like The Way You Move that he’s busy filming.

Sophie has remained part of the cast and features in the current series.

Jamie’s already excited to watch the new crop of Strictly hopefuls when the competition returns later this year but says he’ll be envious of whoever former mentor Karen Hauer, 39, is partnered with.

He said: ‘It was one of those things that you finish and go “okay, what do I do now?” Thank God it was Christmas and I relaxed, which was amazing.

‘It was a bit of a shock to finish but also a massive relief at the same time. It was mixed emotions. It was so great and I loved it.

‘Without a doubt, I can’t wait for them to start training. I’m going to be so jealous of Karen’s partner. It’s something you only get to do once.’
