Shortly after their split, in May 2019, a video obtained exclusively by MailOnline revealed that Jim had already moved on – with him seen kissing Sarah whilst attending the VIP launch of show Hats, Heels and Horses at The London Cabaret Club.

The YouTuber and the Anglo-Indian model attempted to ‘keep a low-profile’ as they made their first public appearance together at the high-profile event, just weeks after he and his wife confirmed their split.

A source told MailOnline: ‘At the beginning of the night during the drinks reception Jim and Sarah were cosied up in a booth tucked away at the end of the bar area, far away from the rest of the VIP guests.

Jim wrote on July 9: ‘Lockdown has been really difficult for the last few weeks – I’ve not been the happiest version of myself, but @sarah.tarleton has been an excellent little companion and kept me smiling. She’s alright, I guess’

‘After Vogue Williams finished her DJ set, they stayed in the bar and tried to keep a low-profile while everyone else took to their seats in the iconic Bloomsbury Ballroom for the main event.

‘Once the lights had gone down and the show had begun, Jim escorted Sarah to their seats, which were positioned at the end of the central runway, in full view of all of the celebrity guests and cameras flashing.

‘They seemed completely at ease with each other, laughing and chatting away, and even shared a kiss when the lights were dimmed during one of the performances.

‘They left together part-way through the cabaret show.’
