Lauren looked cheerful and wore beautiful black sunglasses that matched her black belt.

She cut a casual figure in a pair of white sneakers and carried a large bag. Her tousled brown hair was just below her shoulders as she stepped outside to begin their journey.

The couple, who share seven-year-old son Eric, were also seen hugging an unknown lady in their doorway.

Known for his love of the Caribbean as a vacation destination, Simon is often seen riding a jet ski across the islands.

Their jet setting comes as the record executive is determined to do whatever it takes to make sure he makes a full recovery after breaking his back, including several hours of walking each day and 9am business meetings so that he no longer lives as a ‘vampire’.

About his new fitness regime, a source told MailOnline: ‘Simon said he hasn’t worn that many trainers in 20 years.

“He feels fitter than ever and sticks to a normal routine instead of sitting on the phone until the early hours.”

And Simon took full advantage of his better health and the easing of lockdown restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic, stepping out earlier this month with the likes of Amanda Holden, 50, David Walliams, 49, and Alan Carr, 45.

The record company boss enjoyed a cozy dinner with his friends and Lauren with snapshots of their evening that Amanda had shared on Instagram.

She wrote the post: ‘Great to catch up with these two #outdoor supper’.
