Jade Thirlwall from Little Mix and Jordan Stephens from Rizzle Kicks are celebsville's latest cool couple, after they started chatting in Lockdown 1.0 and made it official by Lockdown 2.0. Here's a look back at their stand out relationship moments so far, starting with the most recent:
21 June 2021
Jade shares a video of Jordan dancing to the song she wrote for K-Pop band, TWICE. It's a rare display of PDA from the couple, who have been dating for over a year, as they rarely share photos together on social media:
The pair are linked by an insider report, which claims they have been chatting during lockdown and keeping things lowkey. "Jade has been open to dating for a while now but it can be hard to find the time to meet people usually," a source told 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 on Tuesday afternoon to chat and get to know each other which was nice but nothing has happened between them yet. With the lockdown in place, they can’t so much as kiss so they will have to take things slow."
While attending Black Lives Matter protests in London, Jade and Jordan are photographed arm-in-arm, though neither shared anything about the other on their own social media platforms.
Jade confirms she's official with Jordan in Cosmopolitan UK's December/January issue, referring to him as 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.
Jade opens up again about why she and the Rizzle Kicks singer are such a "good match", looking back at their lockdown romance. "I ended up meeting someone in lockdown which is strange… I quite enjoyed doing it that way," she told Metro.
"We had real dates and really got to know each other. I wouldn’t say I was looking for anyone at the time. I was happy to be in lockdown because I am independent. I think you can still strive in your singleness in lockdown."
She continued, "It’s the one positive to come out of this. Me and Jordan… we are a good match. We are so chilled out, we are horizontal!"

Jade later shares lots of private pics with Jordan on her Stories, to celebrate his birthday:
Jordan gets real about their sex life during a chat with Lou Sanders on The Cuddle Club podcast. "I had sex with my girlfriend but it was so fantastic that we just both passed out and then came back around like 25 minutes later," he explained. "I remember being like, 'I don’t think that has ever happened to me before'. It was really cool."
He continued, "My girlfriend has got three different kinds of smiles and there’s this one where - I don’t know how to explain it - you can just tell it’s a pure reflection of how she’s feeling in that moment. When we are both mucking about and she just busts out this smile, I think, 'Oh my God'. I just feel full of joy."
Jade reveals she slid into Jordan's Instagram DMs to kick off their relationship, as they mark their one year anniversary. "1 year since I slid in the DMs," Jade captioned an Instagram Story.
