Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall and Jordan Stephens from Rizzle Kicks are officially a thing that's happening, after she referred to him as her boyfriend in Cosmopolitan UK's latest cover interview.

The pair were first linked in June, with an insider claiming at the time that the pair had been messaging during the early days of lockdown, and went for a socially distanced date when rules began to ease.

"Jade has been open to dating for a while now but it can be hard to find the time to meet people usually," an insider explained to The Sun. "While stuck at home she started messaging Jordan and they have been getting on but it’s still really early days.

"They met up for a walk [one] afternoon to chat and get to know each other which was nice but nothing has happened between them yet."

The pair were later photographed arm in arm during the Black Lives Matter protests, and have since been spotted flirting on Instagram. And now? Jade, 27, has confirmed Jordan, 28, is indeed her boyfriend.

In conversation with RuPaul, Jade explained, "It’s really important for me that whoever I find relationship-wise loves drag culture.

"When I first started talking to my boyfriend [actor and musician Jordan Stephens], 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."

The movie in question is called Tucked, a 2018 film which just landed on Netflix and is about a newbie queen who asks an ageing drag performer for guidance.
