Keeping make-up natural, she smiled for snaps, her blonde locks loosely around her features as she cosied up to her date.

Michael donned a navy coat over black jeans and trainers for the evening out.

Also in attendance were DJ Nick Grimshaw and his boyfriend.

Nick wore a white shirt over a snazzy black and white jacket, black trousers and necklaces while his boyfriend Meshach Henry wore a bright blue/green windbreaker and baggy jeans.

Zoe’s appearance follows her son Woody Cook’s admission that his parents have stopped giving him handouts and he’s living on such a tight budget that he struggles to afford bread.

The 20-year-old is the son of the esteemed BBC presenter and her ex, DJ and record producer Fatboy Slim.

Zoe, 50, and the musician, real name Norman Cook, 58, are worth a staggering £35million but they are believed to have stopped giving their son cash, instead encouraging him to earn his own money.

Woody told The Mirror at the Attitude Awards: ‘My parents have cut me off completely. They are like, ‘Do you want to be a trust fund child or do you want to work?’ I want to work, so I am now self-sufficient, I don’t have a student loan.

‘I am doing it all by myself, the other day I couldn’t afford bread, but I’m working through it.’

The Celebrity Gogglebox star said his parents made it clear that they both had to work their ‘asses’ off for their success, which he has reaped the benefits of.

Woody, who competed on Channel 4’s The Circle and came in fifth place, has vowed to earn his own way in the world, saying his parents have taught him not to rely on other people.

Woody’s comments came after he glammed up at Wednesday’s Virgin Atlantic Attitude Awards held at Camden’s Roundhouse earlier this week.

Ensuring he was living up to the fun and frolics of the event, Woody wore a dazzling ball gown scrawled in graffiti while he led fellow revellers leaving the bash.

He was dressed to impressed in the monochrome gown which featured black writing scrawled all over a white base, with a corseted structure while he toted a handbag and a goodie bag.

Woody put on a show-stopping display in the white gown, as he twisted this way and that to show off the dress in its entirety while also giving a peek of his trainers underneath.

He seemed to be borrowing style tips from Harry Styles – another lover of androgynous looks – as he wore his hair in bouncy curls and had his wrist laden with bands from various festivals.

Woody hit screens earlier this year when he joined his famous mother on Celebrity Gogglebox, with the duo’s cheeky rapport winning legions of fans.

They left fans cringing after they watched an episode of hit Netflix show Too Hot To Handle together – and things took an uncomfortable turn as the conversation turned to masturbation.

One of the contestants made plans to break the self-gratification rules on the show and relieve himself in private, with the reality star moaning that his ‘balls are in a dire situation’.

With things already awkward for Woody having to watch the scenes with his mother, Zoe then made things worse by turning to him and stating: ‘Effectively he hasn’t pleasured himself in so long his balls are swelling up.’

Zoe then asked her son: ‘Do you have to empty them? I’m a girl I don’t know.’

With Woody clearly embarrassed, she pressed further: ‘I know but what if you don’t empty them and then you’re being surrounded by girls like that, how painful would it be?’

Her mortified son replied: ‘what the hell?’ before adding: ‘Some people they don’t need to do it. There are monks and stuff, they’re celibate.’

Wanting to swiftly end the embarrassing chat, he then declared: ‘I don’t know! I don’t want to have this conversation with you!’
