Nicole Scherzinger looked like the cat who got the cream as she cuddled up to her rugby star beau Thom Evans in Mexico. Packing on the PDA, Thom, 34, shared the poolside snap of the pair on his Instagram, simply captioned with a love heart emoji. The picture marks the new couple's first holiday away together, seeing in the New Year at Nobu Hotel in Los Cabos, Mexico.

Soaking up the sun, the pair looked tanned and happy in their au-natural snap, with family and friends quick to give their seal of approval. Younger brother, Max Evans, wrote "Olympic beauty" on Thom's page, whilst ex-Strictly Come Dancing professional Camilla Dallerup posted: "Gorgeous couple."
