Opening up about past relationships, she told the publication, "I’ve definitely been through my fair share of insecurities that I’ve fought through and battled, and I’ve gone through challenges and relationships — and what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger."
Going on to reference how lockdown helped her new relationship with Thom, she added, "Now I have a new perspective and things balance out. And I’m really grateful to [in lockdown] build a healthy, strong, solid foundation to my relationship."
The singer continued, sharing details on how Thom motivates her when it comes to fitness. She explained, "I mainly exercise for my mental health. The positive endorphins help me be creative, and Thom is the king of working out, so he motivates me. He says, ‘Come on, you’ll feel so much better afterwards,’ and I’m so competitive I’ll be, like, ‘OK!’"
10 September 2021 - The couple hit the red carpet once again

October 2021 - Thom gushes about Nicole in rare interview
Opening up in a candid interview, Thom shared details on how he knew Nicole was the one after the pair first met, gushing about the singer in the process. He told The Sun, "People always say, ‘When you know, you know’ and I can honestly say I’d never really had that moment. But within the first couple of days with Nicole it was just awesome and it has been awesome ever since."
Revealing more about what happened when the pair first met on X Factor, he added, "It wasn’t even in my thought process to try it on with Nicole because it would have been unprofessional and she’s so lovely and stunning in every possible way. I was just like, ‘She’s out of my league’." However, Thom went on to explain that the duo ended up properly chatting after he and his Try Star bandmates went to Nicole's dressing room to thank her for saving them in the competition.
Elsewhere in the interview, he joked, "Nobody is asking Nicole how she got with me because I’m massively punching (above my weight). She’s so easy and fun to be around. I’ve hit the jackpot."
These two ❤️.
