Jamie slipped on some leather loafers and shielded his eyes with square framed sunglasses as his blond locks fell to his shoulders. 

Jess looked sensational as she also rocked a black suit with a fitted crop top and striking floral heels. 

She wore her long raven locks in a sleek style and added a pop of colour with a purple clutch bag.

Their outing comes as Jamie got candid about his struggles with addiction and mental illness last week.

The actor not only gave fans an update on his sobriety, he's also now offering up some powerful words of encouragement to others still suffering with either ailment.

'12 and a half years ago I was in active addiction. Hurting myself and those around me who I loved the most,' the London, England native tweeted.

He added: 'It got so bad that eventually I ended up in a hospital for mental health. I am now 7 1/2 years clean and sober. I have made many mistakes in my life.'

Jamie went on to share how he's in a much better place in his life, both personally and professionally, and that it's all thanks to him maintaining his sobriety.

He wrote: 'But each day is a chance to start again. Atone for mistakes and grow,' he shared before directing his words to people who are in the clutches of addiction.'

'For anyone who wakes up thinking "oh god not again" I promise you there's a way. I'm so grateful to be where I am, I'm so grateful to be sober. I'm so grateful to be. Remember, we are all works in progress J x,' he tweeted in the follow up post.

In the past, Bower addressed the subjects of mental health and addiction in his 2019 song, It Gets Better, which he recorded with the band Counterfeit. 

It had references to both issues with lyrics such as, 'If you've seen the bottom, if you've given up - Believe me, my sister, there is hope for us.'

There's also words of encouragement with the lyrics, 'Stand up, get loud if you feel like it - Stay up, have fun, don't you ever quit - Maybe, it all may hurt just a little bit - Don't let anybody tell you that you can't do it.'
