The mother-of-two's sandy blonde tresses were swept back in a tight bun allowing her pretty face to shine through.

Nicole also put her slim figure on show as she stepped out in a sleeveless grey tank top and black leggings, which highlighted her lithe legs.

She completed the look with a pair of monochrome trainers, and held a beige coat and a bottle of water in her hands.

The starlet talked animatedly with her gal pal, who was seen on the phone as the pair stood outside the fitness centre.

Nicole's friend wore a black hoodie over floral print three-quarter length leggings, and wore her blonde locks loose and swept to one side.
