The star appeared to go make-up free, while wearing a pair of stylish round spectacles. 

Actor and producer Greg, 56, opted for jeans and a navy padded jacket.

Sporting an unshaven face, the former Strictly Come Dancing contestant carried his belongings in a rucksack over one shoulder. 

The couple appeared in high spirts as they enjoyed a chat while sitting outside the bakery. 

Emma and Greg have been married since 2003 and have two children; daughter Gaia, 22, and adopted son Tindyebwa.

It comes after Emma fought back tears after she was surprised with a letter penned by her late father Eric on The One Show last month.

The actress, whose dad died in 1982, was stunned to be given the letter as the programme showed images of Eric in his youth, joking: ‘He was a bit of alright!’

The letter was penned by Eric asking for an audition to work at the BBC after he left the army, with the actor going onto create and narrate the English adaptation of the beloved TV series The Magic Roundabout. 

In it Eric asked the BBC if he could audition for them after leaving the army, with host Jermaine Jenas explaining: ‘There’s this letter from your dad to the BBC. 

‘So he says he’s just left the army and that he’s been advised to write a letter to ask for an audition with the BBC.

‘And I’ll tell you what it says, so it says: ”I have no broadcasting experience apart from an audition in Birmingham some years ago, but I have had stage experience both amateur and repertory”.’

The letter was accompanied by the BBC’s audition report and photos of Eric taken during his youth.

Zoe Ball added: ‘And the good news is, Emma, he did get an audition, three years later. The producers wrote a positive report on him, which you can have a look at now, so good isn’t it.’

She continued: ‘And you can see there, they noted that he had a ‘quiet charm and a twinkle and an obvious sense of humour’.’

Emma was visibly thrilled by the items, telling the camera: ‘My mother, who is 90, is watching this! Mum! I mean honestly, look!’

Gazing at the old snaps of her father, Emma added: ‘Check him out! He was a bit of alright wasn’t he really!’

Eric went onto present the children’s series Playschool in the 1960s, and was also the English narrator of The Magic Roundabout. Following a heart attack in 1967, he focused his attention on directing.
