The 31-year-old was joined by his girlfriend Sophie Habboo, 27, who also donned comfy leisurewear for the outing, strolling along behind Jamie in autumnal London. The appearance comes after Jamie and his Strictly pro partner Karen Hauer took to the dance floor on Saturday as the 2020 series kicked off their live shows - with Jamie admitting this weekend that he'll be 'stepping back' from Made In Chelsea.

Jamie Kah will be the only female jockey riding in the Melbourne Cup this year but it's not her gender that's got the punters taking notice.

The 24-year-old is the in-form jockey this spring, having won an impressive 23 per cent of her races over the past three months, those who look for omens to pick the winner on Tuesday will be having a flutter on her.

Not only is she riding a highly-credentialled contender in Prince of Arran, but there are a series of uncanny coincidences to the 2015 Melbourne Cup when her close friend Michelle Payne became the first female rider to win the race.

Not only is the 24-year-old the only female jockey as Payne was then, she will also be starting from barrier one - the same gate from which Payne guided 100/1 longshot Prince of Penzance to victory, and the horses also share the same regal title.

Punters also see a logical sequence behind Prince of Arran's chances, after he finished third in 2018 and 2nd in 2019, so 'racing logic' says he will win this year.

'Jamie getting the same barrier as I did was amazing and then there is the names of the horses as well, both 'Princes'.

Payne famously became the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup in 2015, with the triumph-over-adversity story becoming the subject of a movie.

The 24-year-old is currently in her racing prime but admits that the Cup experience will not be the same this year due to the absence of crowds because of Covid-19.
