“When I saw her in her blue dress last week, she looked incredible.

He added: “I can’t wait to see her grow and look amazing every week.”

Whether they are actually dating remains to be seen, but when HRVY went in to the competition he did say he was open to romance.

In an interview with Kiss FM he said: ”I’m currently single so I mean… I might be looking for some love on Strictly.

"If it comes my way, if I find some chemistry with someone and they’re like, 'I’m down', 100 per cent."

"It happened to Joe [Sugg] I feel like dancing is so intimate, it can spark up something."

But who has the star dated in the past?

Well, although HRVY has not spoken publicly about having a girlfriend he was recently linked to 18-year-old YouTube star Olivia Neill.

Belfast-born Olivia currently lives in London and the two were pictured cosying up together in YouTube videos as well as appearing on each other's very successful TikTok accounts.

Additionally, it was thought that the star was dating 18-year-old singer Loren Gray late last year.

Back in September Loren posted cosy snaps of the two on a shopping trip and admitted she "‘couldn’t pick one" to share.
