Scherzinger and Evans first met when he appeared as a contestant on the celebrity version of The X Factor in 2019, on which Scherzinger was a judge alongside Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh.

Evans was part of a rugby boy band, alongside Ben Foden and Levi Davis.

Although they didn't win the show, Evans made an impression on Scherzinger and the two began a romantic relationship shortly after.

The two were snapped enjoying romantic nights together towards the end of 2019, including one date where they were pictured 'kissing non-stop'.

Although the two appear very much in love, they are from very different worlds.

Scherzinger became famous through the girl group The Pussycat Dolls, before finding further success as a judge on The X Factor, appearing on the panel in 2012, 2013, 2016 and 2017.

Evans on the other hand played for the Glasgow Warriors and has played for Scotland ten times.

Unfortunately, he was forced to retire from the game at the age of 24, when he suffered a neck injury during a game between Scotland and Wales.

Proud of his Scottish roots, the former rugby player was actually born in Zimbabwe.

Evans explained: "I was born in Zimbabwe. My parents live in Portugal. I went to school in England and played for Scotland, so it was a crazy mix.

"Both sets of grandparents are Scottish. So even though I have this crazy sort of upbringing, Scotland is where my roots come from."
