James kept it casual as he wrapped up in a black leather jacket and also sported a pair of dark jeans. 

However, a source told MailOnline: 'They are just friends, James is single and not dating anyone.' 

MailOnline has also contacted representatives for James and Rachel for comment.  

It comes after James' ex Yazmin hinted she's in a new relationship as she captured her romantic weekend in the UAE after being lavished with gifts for her 27th birthday. 

The former TOWIE star clinked a champagne glass with a mystery man before taking a ride in a Lamborghini and sitting down for dinner at the Burj Khalifa.

Darren Le Gallo, Amy Adams posing for a picture: There's no correct amount of time to leave between getting engaged and getting married – it varies massively depending on the couple.   While some stars have been known to tie the knot as soon after their engagement, the likes of Kate Hudson, Jennifer Aniston and Oprah Winfrey have left it several years before walking down the aisle – almost 30 years for chat show host Oprah!

'Arguments between them have intensified and turned nasty, resulting in the couple deciding between them to go their separate ways – and this time, for good.'
