Looking as loved-up as ever, the couple cuddled and removed their face masks to share kisses on a bench.

TV and film star Robert appeared to be on the mend as he emerged from self-isolation.

In the UK, you are required to self-isolate for at least 10 days if you have symptoms or have tested positive for the virus. 

The Twilight actor and the model have been dating for over two years and currently live together in the English capital.

Amid fears that halting production for two weeks could cost as much as £5 million, the film’s director Matt Reeves is trying to film as much as he can at the Warner Bros. Studio in Leavesden, Hertfordshire, without his leading man.

Any of the 130-strong crew who did not have direct contact with Robert are being asked to return to work and sets that had been prepared are being moved from studio G to another studio. 

‘Anything that can be shot and does not involved Pattinson will now go ahead,’ a set insider told MailOnline.

‘That includes scenes with his body double. The aim is to get as much done as possible before he returns and the hope is that none of the other actors get the virus. 

'Crew can be replaced as most are freelance and hired for the duration of the shoot but it would be disastrous if another major actor gets the virus.

‘Production staff are working round the clock to get things moving and allow some filming to take place.’ 

Sources told Vanity Fair that the thespian contracted the deadly virus just days after production resumed on the big-budget film.   

In a statement Warner Bros. told the publication: 'A member of The production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.'

'Everyone was talking on the set about it. We do not know who has tested positive, but it has caused chaos
