Jade Thirwall Just Shared Why She And Her New Boyfriend Are ‘A Good Match’

"I ended up meeting someone in lockdown which is strange."

Jade Thirwall has opened up about her relationship with new boyfriend Jordan Stephens.

The Little Mix star explained that she wasn’t expecting to get into a relationship during the pandemic.

“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.”

The singer added that as this year has been tough for everyone, Jordan’s support made a huge difference.

“Anyone who has supported you through hard times is really important. It’s quite special seeing that.”

She went on to describe how laid back the pair are as a couple.

“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 was first spotted with the actor and Rizzle Kicks member over the summer when they both attended a Black Lives Matter protest.

Jade confirmed the relationship earlier this month in Cosmopolitan UK. She explained that his appreciation and understanding of drag culture was a huge plus for her.

“It’s really important for me that whoever I find relationship-wise loves drag culture,” she explained,

“When I first started talking to my boyfriend, 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.”
