Eddie dressed for the cold weather in the pink coat, which she paired with the high-heeled boots for the outing.

The star was carrying a simple black shoulder bag as she walked into the capital.

Last month, fans got a glimpse of Eddie’s transformation into city attorney for Netflix’s drama Stay Close, ahead of its New Year’s Eve release.

She stared into the camera as she posed in her office in a two-piece black suit and burgundy tie as she began her role for the eight-part series.

She was joined on-screen by James Nesbitt, who plays a detective in the thrilling adaptation of Harlan Coben’s best-selling crime novels.

Stay Close follows four main characters who live comfortable lives and keep a disturbing secret.

The crime drama promised to leave viewers questioning how much you really know someone as they watch the turbulent plot.

When one of the group’s old friends tells them some shocking news, their lives are turned upside down as events from their past begin to haunt them.

James’ character battles his own demons and cannot forget a missing person whose case he was unable to solve.

Sarah Parish and former EastEnders star Jo Joyner also starred on screen for the suspenseful drama.

Elsewhere, Deadwater Fell star Cush Jumbo joined the stars as a struggling mother who balances caring for her children with work.

Meanwhile, lead actor Richard Armitage played the part of photographer Ray, who is stuck in a job that doesn’t satisfy him.

Netflix previously adapted Harlen Coben’s novel The Stranger, which also starred Richard, hoping to recreate the same explosive format.

Eddie’s latest project came after she stated her gender is “elastic” in an interview with Radio Times.

The media personality explained, “I’m going into girl mode or boy mode, which I see as a superhero thing.”

While discussing the use of pronouns, the activist also insisted, “It doesn’t matter,” as she outlined the circumstances in which she would be in different “modes.”

Eddie revealed that she was a transvestite nearly four decades ago, before considering herself trans.

The writer, who appeared on Sky’s Portrait Artist of the Year last year, was dubbed “she” and “her” and has now clarified that she is “elastic” for gender.

The star of A Day in the Death of Joe Egg added, “I’m going into girl mode or boy mode, which I see as a superhero thing.

‘on that show’ [Sky’s Portrait Artist of the Year], they asked which pronouns I preferred, and I said, “Well, I’m in girl mode here and if you ask, she and her would be great.”

‘It does not matter. It is elastic, not hard and fast. I’m still gender fluid. I still play male roles in dramas, in boring mode.

“But stand-up, activism and long-distance running are all girls’ fashion.”
