Jade Thirlwall's romance with Rizzle Kicks’ Jordan Stephens heats up as they enjoy romantic break in Italy

JADE Thirlwall’s new romance is moving even faster than one of Little Mix’s energetic pop tunes.

I first revealed she was growing close to Rizzle Kicks singer Jordan Stephens in May, but just three months after their first date they have jetted off on a romantic getaway.

I’ve learned the fledgling couple are coming to the end of a week-long holiday in the Trento region of Northern Italy.

A source close to the Little Mix singer said: “Jade and Jordan have spent more and more time together in the last few weeks as lockdown eased. 

“She really likes Jordan and although it was quite a last-minute decision to go to Italy, she was really excited to go. 

“It might seem quite quick for some people but they’ve spent so much time talking and getting to know each other that they’ve become really close in a short time. Jade has tried to get off social media a bit too. It’s been a refreshing break.”

While in Italy, they have been on a sailing trip and visited the Arte Sella Nature Trail, which features a series of outdoor exhibits by modern artists.

Eagle-eyed fans were convinced Jade had been staying at Jordan’s London home after watching her in an interview — and recognising the background from Jordan’s Instagram photos.

Zooming off somewhere sunny is very on-brand for Jade, as Little Mix only released their new single Holiday last month — inspired by their love lives.

Her bandmates Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock have recently returned from trips to Ibiza with their footballer partners Alex Oxlade-chamberlain and Andre Gray.

And Jesy Nelson, who has also struck up a romance in lockdown, visited Cornwall on a mini break with her new beau, Our Girl actor Sean Sagar.

With their travels over, I hope they can get their sixth album done and dusted.


’Bout time for a Bieby?

HAILEY Bieber should make the most of her model figure while she still can – because her husband Justin seems to be getting broody.

She posed in a yellow bikini hours after meeting her big sister Alaia’s newborn daughter, Iris.

Baby singer Justin cradled the tot and called her “the most squishy cute gumdrop ever.”

Actor Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson saw Justin’s Instagram photo, left, and commented: “This image pretty much seals the deal. Fully expect you and H to have a baby in 2021.”

Justin will tour the US next summer, as long as venues reopen, with dates for the rest of the world expected to be added.

Juggling a newborn with all those shows would certainly make next year a lot busier than his 2020.


KANYE West has offended some Muslims after naming his new Yeezy trainers after the faith’s archangels for music and death, Israfil and Asriel. Some Twitter users accused him of mocking Islam. 

George: A-listers? Robots in disguise 

GEORGE Ezra has met his fair share of celebrities in his time but now he’s claiming some of our favourite stars are actually ROBOTS.

The Shotgun singer says he has met some big names who he is convinced weren’t entirely human because they were so weird.

He explained: “There’s definitely one or two A-list celebrities I’ve met that are half android. I don’t want to get into that whole conspiracy but I’ve met a few people in the public eye that are half bot. It’s like, ‘Bleep bloop, lovely to meet you, bleep bloop.’ That’s something I have experienced.”

The Brit brought up the topic when claiming he is being punished by his phone for not using it enough.

He said he had left his device at home during a day out recently but that it started glitching when he returned and tried to use it.

Speaking on his Phone A Friend podcast, George said: “It’s as if my phone knows and is punishing me.

“I do find it very peculiar that the one day I neglect this piece of tech, I come home and it’s like, ‘App shutting down,’ and it’s still wigging out a bit.

“Obviously when my phone starts to do this, I’m equipped for this. I’m like, ‘I’ve met your type before’.”

I think George might have spent a bit too much time on his own this year.


FRANK Turner, Jack Savoretti and Lighthouse Family have been announced as the latest acts to play at the outdoor, socially distanced venue Virgin Money Unity Arena in Newcastle. 

Fans rage at Dua's do

DUA Lipa must have been exhausted after spending an afternoon bodyboarding, but it was her fans who were feeling sore with her after the star’s other antics over the weekend.

She hit the waves in Malibu with boyfriend Anwar Hadid and later threw a huge party at her house in Los Angeles to celebrate her 25th birthday.

Oblivious to the need for social distancing, Dua – who also broke the rules at the height of lockdown in London by visiting her family – shared photos of the bash on her Instagram.

But her followers were quick to scald her for having the party and sharing the images, given she is a role model for so many young people.

One commented: “Genuinely disappointed in you. 

“There’s a pandemic going on. All this does is show that pop stars think they’re above the rules. Travelling, parties, now isn’t the time. Lead by example.”

Well said.
