Jordan looked effortlessly chic in a pretty floral midi dress as she and her beau spent the afternoon relaxing together.
MailOnline revealed the couple’s blossoming friendship in July, with this being the first time they have put on such a public display of affection, confirming their romance.
Just last month, James was snapped sharing what appeared to be an intimate moment with the former Cambridge finance student, who’s been comforting the Olympic rower through his divorce to TV’s Bev Turner.
New Yorker Jordan, who is part of the ‘cougars’ cheerleading team, was seen getting close with the 47-year-old father-of-three at the Henley Regatta.
James has been seen several times with the young blonde who he met during their time together at Cambridge.
In July, a source told MailOnline of the blossoming friendship: ‘They have become very close and since his marriage break up there are few people who would deny him the support of an attractive young woman.
‘The end of James’ marriage to Bev has been amicable and friendly but there’s always going to be regret and maybe loneliness when something like that happens so it’s great he’s going his own way.’
James’ girlfriend, whose family live in New York, was a member of the ‘Cambridge Cougars’, a university cheerleading team who support students at sports events.
