Home And Away stars James Stewart and Isabella Giovinazzo haven’t been spotted together in weeks.

Now they’ve fuelled further speculation they’ve called time on their romance after Jess Marais’ ex was spotted cuddling up to Seven sports presenter Mel McLaughlin.

James, 41, and Mel, 38, posed for a cosy snap at Randwick Races last week.

The proud dad to Scout Stewart posted a cosy snap from the event with Mel quick to comment, “Always a pleasure.”

Fans were quick to question where Isabella, 27, was.

“Why are there no pictures of James and Isabella on either of their Instagrams? James and this woman look nice as a couple. I hope they are happy together,” said one fan.

“What a lovely couple,” another said of James and Mel.
