Helen wrapped up in a fluffy cream coat worn over a striped top which she teamed with skinny blue jeans and chunky heeled boots.

She covered her eyes with a pair of square black shades and wore her blonde locks in a ponytail.

Jack kept things casual for the outing in a plain black sweater, grey shorts and white pumps. He also rocked some aviator-style shades, and his dimples were visible through his designer stubble.

Helen - who plays nurse Trixie Franklin in Call The Midwife - reportedly stayed in a luxury suite with her co-star at the Moditlo Lodge, and staff told the Daily Mirror they looked 'very much in love.'  

A manager said: 'They were here together and seemed very close. They spent quite a lot of time by the pool just chilling, doing nothing and being together.'

'They really wanted to see where the animals are rehabilitated and they saw what we do to help animals that need rehabilitation.

Meanwhile, another member of staff said: 'Helen and Jack saw cheetahs on their first drive. They were very excited. Helen said it was the most wonderful experience of her life.'

The romance comes after she split from her husband and fellow actor Oliver Boot. The couple confirmed their separation in September following three years of marriage.
