KerChung! Model Alexa, 37, dons £370 teddy bear coat for a stroll with her 25-year-old boyfriend (who’s the heir to Fry’s chocolate)

When Alexa Chung began dating a toyboy, friends thought romance would quickly melt away. But after almost two years, it seems the model and her chocolate heir boyfriend are still sweet on each other.

The couple were spotted last week braving freezing temperatures as they took a stroll near the home they share in East London.

Miss Chung, 37, chose a grey £370 oversized Teddy Bear coat by British designers Jane and Tash, while Orson Fry, 25, opted for a navy blue overcoat and scarf. Clutching a takeaway hot drink to help keep warm, Miss Chung teamed her furry coat with an unusual blue and white check hat.

Mr Fry, a singer and a scion of the famous chocolate-making family, moved into Miss Chung’s apartment shortly after they met in the spring of 2019. The Mail on Sunday revealed they were dating that June after the couple were seen smooching at a music festival. According to their Instagram accounts, they have since enjoyed several holidays together, including one to France last year.

Mr Fry, a graduate of the private liberal arts college Bard in New York, worked as a waiter before dating Miss Chung. Her previous boyfriends include Arctic Monkeys singer Alex Turner and Coldplay star Chris Martin.

Spotted by a fashion scout at the age of 16, Miss Chung shot to fame as co-host of Channel 4’s Popworld programme. In 2010, Mulberry launched the Alexa, a sought-after handbag inspired by her distinctive style, and four years ago she launched her own fashion range.

Her boyfriend, who performs in a band called Soundtown, is the grandson of John Aspinall, the gambling tycoon and animal-park owner. His links to Fry’s, the firm that created the first solid chocolate bar in 1847, are through his hotelier father Cosmo. Fry’s later became part of the Cadbury brand.
