The couple have been together since April 2019, with Jamie previously telling HELLO! of their relationship: "All I can say is my girlfriend is pretty special and I'm very lucky to have someone like that in my life, she's epic in every single way.

Jamie previously sweetly revealed that he "couldn't be more in love" with his other half.

"I always thought I was going to be this guy who just settled, that I would be in a relationship, I would settle, I would maybe end up cheating at some point – I just thought that was life," he said on The Moments That Made Me podcast.

"But then I found someone who I couldn't be more compatible with, couldn't love more, couldn't respect more and realised, this is actually what life is about."
