The Candy Kittens entrepreneur, 30, and the reality star, 25, appeared happy and relaxed as they headed out in the sunshine, giggling away as they seemingly shared an intimate moment while leaving the park.
New romance? Made In Chelsea co-stars Jamie Laing and Sophie ‘Habbs’ Habboo looked cosy while stepping out on a low-key stroll through London’s Kensington Gardens on Sunday
Habbs looked stylish in denim hotpants and a baby blue bardot crop top, teamed with white leather slide-on loafters and a matching handbag.
The TV personality accessorised with circular shades and wore her blonde locks pushed back from her face in a high ponytail.
Jamie kept things casual for the pair’s park date, opting for workout gear and trainers, paired with shades and a Louis Vuitton bag.
Close friends Jamie and Habbs were first linked in early May, leaving Jamie’s best pal, former MIC star Sam Thompson, 26, feeling ‘betrayed’.

The pair’s cosy appearance comes after Jamie admitted Sam hadn’t spoken to him since claims first emerged that the pair were ‘hooking up’.
Jamie split from French model and heiress Heloise Agostinelli, 20, in April, while Habbs left Sam heartbroken by dumping him on screen in the E4 reality show last year after a six-month romance.
An insider said at the time: ‘Sam has been left devastated by Jamie’s actions. They’ve been close friends for years and Jamie knows how heartbroken Sam was when Habbs finished with him.
‘Habbs should have been massively off limits – but instead he’s been hooking up with her behind Sam’s back which has really shocked their entire friendship group.’

One of Habbs’ best friends, former MIC star Frankie Gaff, 24, also previously dated Jamie for around two years, with the pair enduring a famously tumultuous on-off romance on the show.
The source added to The Sun: ‘It’s also incredibly hurtful on Habbs’ part. She’s good friends with Jamie’s ex Frankie Gaff and has massively broken girl code.’
The current series of Made In Chelsea has seen Jamie openly declare his feelings for Habbs, with the ‘will they, won’t they’ storyline expected to reach a crescendo when the season ends on Monday night.
Jamie recently admitted Sam hadn’t spoken to him since he admitted he was more than friends with Habbs.

Speaking on his podcast last month, he explained: ‘A lot of people are upset – my ex-girlfriend is upset, Sam’s obviously upset. It’s very delicate and it’s tricky.
‘I reached out to Sam, I spoke to him and explained the situation and said I was sorry. I haven’t heard from him since and it’s obviously tricky to deal with and I haven’t heard from him. I’ve reached out and haven’t heard back.’
Sam recently said he was so scarred from his experience with Habbs that he bowed out of Made In Chelsea after five years on the reality show so he didn’t have to go through a break-up in the glare of the public eye again.
During an interview with Heart FM, he explained: ‘Getting dumped all the time was chipping away at my confidence.
‘You don’t want to be around your ex. Everyone on there is now more her friend and a lot of my friends have upped and left.’
