Karen looked stunning in the form-fitting two-piece, which she paired with a simple black top underneath. 

Keeping warm in the warm Autumnal air, the Venezuelan beauty hung a thick, long woolen coat over her shoulders.

Boosting her frame, she teamed her stylish ensemble with a simple pair of pointed, navy heels. 

The star's cropped locks were brushed into a slick style, while she upped the glam with smokey eyes and a hot pink lip.

Meanwhile, opera singer David looked dapper in a navy blue coat, which he teamed with blue jeans and dark blue trainers. 

Their outing comes after Karen revealed that she 'wasn't in a good place mentally or physically' following her divorce from Kevin Clifton.

Speaking in an interview with Hello! magazine, the dancer said: 'I'd taken a big hit and I was going through a whole explosion of emotions.

'My life was completely changing from one day to another. It did affect me mentally and physically – I wasn’t in a good place.'

And while Karen has found happiness, so too has her ex, who has moved on with broadcaster Stacey Dooley, 32, whom he was paired with in the previous series of Strictly. 

Touching on his new romance, Karen said: 'It's nice to see him calm which I had not seen in years. Maybe it takes that bit of trauma to make you both realise this is what we need to do. And at the same time, we haven’t lost one another.'

With the pair still interacting on a daily basis on the BBC dance show, Karen adds that things are all good between them, stating that she'll 'never lose his friendship' because there's 'love' and 'admiration' between them.

Gushing: 'He's my rock. It¿s so nice to have someone that understands and accepts me, doesn't judge and doesn't try to change me in any way'

Meanwhile, Karen gushed over her current beau David in the chat, she said: 'He's my rock.

'It’s so nice to have someone that understands and accepts me, doesn't judge and doesn't try to change me in any way. Everyone just falls in love with him too, because he has such a beautiful soul.' 

While a smitten David, who didn't know who Karen was before they met, describes himself as the 'luckiest man on this earth.'

And after finding love again after such a traumatic period in her life, Karen confessed that she wouldn't be opposed to walking down the aisle once more, adding 'never say never'.
