Jade Thirlwall has shared the first picture she took with her new boyfriend Jordan Stephens.

Taking part in an Instagram challenge where followers ask people to share certain moments, the Little Mix star posted the sweet snap.

It showed the pair taking a photo of themselves as they posed at a supermarket self-checkout.

Jade confirmed she was dating the Rizzle Kicks star in October last year, but it's thought they had been together for months before.

She previously revealed that she fell for Jordan after seeing him in drag in the movie Tucked.

"It's really important for me that whoever I find relationship-wise loves drag culture," she told RuPaul in a Cosmopolitan interview.

"When I first started talking to my boyfriend, I discovered he did a movie where he played a drag queen and I was like, right, that's it.

"He's perfect. Sign me up! A straight man who's willing to dress in drag and loves being queer and feminine."

Little Mix recently shared their first picture as a trio, after it was confirmed that Jesy Nelson was leaving the band after nine years.

"The truth is recently being in the band has taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard," Jesy explained.

"There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focusing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin that process."
