The pair, who have been married for almost nine years, appeared to be in content and relaxed spirits as they posed together on the star-studded red carpet.

James, 35, looked incredibly dapper in a tailored two-piece suit, which he teamed with a crisp white shirt and a silky black tie.

His leading lady dressed her lean and slender frame in a gorgeous black strapless gown, complete with embellished floral detailing and a heart-shaped bodice.

Her lightly coloured tresses were styled in a chic updo, while a slick of dark pink lipstick, dark eyeliner and lashings of black mascara gave the look the perfect flourish.
