During his outing, James teamed the garment with blue jeans and wrapped up warm in a black coat and navy scarf as he held on to his wife’s hand.

Julia looked stunning in a camel coat, and black scarf which she wore over a black jacket and black trousers with lace up boots.

She wore her blonde tresses swept up in an elegant up do, and clutched a black bobble hat in her hand.

The pair reportedly enjoyed a dinner of oysters, bread, cheese and pink champagne as they sat outside.

During their meal, the pair were interrupted by several fans asking for pictures with James, to which he graciously obliged. 

It comes as last week mystery surrounded the future of James Corden’s television production company that makes his successful US chat show.

Documents show that Fulwell 73 Productions LLP, on which the global star is listed as a designated member, was to be dissolved on Tuesday 14 December..

It is the umbrella company to Fulwell 73’s three other firms, one of which is also being dissolved.

The move appears to mean Mr Corden is no longer involved in the business, which he joined in August 2017 to great fanfare.

Asked whether Mr Corden would own any of the company after the changes, a spokesman for Fulwell 73 declined to comment.

The firm, jointly based in the UK and the US, is behind Mr Corden’s Late Late Show, as well as the recent programme where singer Adele was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey about her divorce. 

According to official documents filed to Companies House, any remaining assets will be transferred to the Crown after it is dissolved. It is not known how much any assets are worth.

The company’s latest accounts, which related to 2019, show it had a turnover of £25.5 million and a profit of £11.5 million.

Sources close to Fulwell 73 – which was formed by Mr Corden’s long-standing friend of 18 years, Ben Winston – described the move to dissolve the firm as a ‘procedural technicality with HMRC’, which ‘relates to accounts filed and delays due to the complexities of Covid accounting’.

When a spokesman was asked whether that meant the firm had unpaid tax bills, he declined to comment. 

Last week, in a statement, Fulwell 73’s five partners, including Mr Corden, said they are ‘as committed to the business as they ever have been’, and insisted that ‘Fulwell 73 is thriving’, after instructing celebrity public relations firm Freuds to deal with the media surrounding the company’s current circumstances.

It comes amid the news James reached 1,000 episodes of The Late Late Show on CBS, and was visited by Mariah Carey to celebrate to milestone.

The 52-year-old singer was thanked by James for being the first star to participate in his Carpool Karaoke segment on the talk show.

James shared a clip of their 2015 Carpool Karaoke segment in which they sang Mariah’s hit songs Always Be My Baby, Fantasy, Vision Of Love and Thirsty. 

‘We owe you so much for saying yes and taking a chance on us. We do. We really, really do and I thank you from the bottom of my heart,’ James said.

‘That is very sweet,’ said Mariah who earlier said it was her first public appearance in two years.

The 1,000th episode also featured a remote appearance by Tom Cruise, 59, who fondly recalled the time he and James parachuted out of a plane together.

‘It’s mad to think we’ve made 1,000 hours of television. It’s a lot to think about.’
