The couple, who have reportedly been together for 20 months, looked casual while strolling north London.

Miss Cookson wore a knitted dress over a black T-shirt and little or no makeup with her hair combed back.

The couple met in 2017 while making the film Red Joan, the story of the KGB's longest-serving British spy.

In the same year, Campbell Moore was operated on for a benign brain tumor. In February 2018, he and Miss Foy announced that their four-year marriage had ended and said they had been separated for some time.

They have a daughter, Ivy Rose, now five. At the end of 2018, the Stars of the History Boys, Campbell Moore and Miss Cookson, were pictured together in London, with the actress even wearing his hat.

Miss Cookson impressed viewers as Miss Keeler in the six-part BBC series The Trial Of Christine Keeler, about the 1960s Profumo affair that rocked the Harold Macmillan government.
