Jessie J and Channing Tatum were all smiles as they were photographed holding hands in London.

The singer and the Magic Mike actor looked cheerful as they were spotted in the capital together for the very first time earlier today.

Their public display of affection comes shortly after the pair appeared to confirm their rumoured romance on social media, following months of speculation.

Last week, the singer shared a screenshot on her Instagram Stories which showed direct messages from the actor in response to a selfie she had previously posted.

Tatum dedicated a sweet poem to his rumoured love interest, writing in rhyming couplets: “Yes I won’t rest till I caress fresh face Jess. I will finesse till success. Never digress. Just progress. Bless.”

The musician, real name Jessica Cornish, appeared to be amused by the rap attempt, screenshotting the messages and drawing a red heart over them.

The pair were first linked back in October, when a source told US Weekly that the relationship was “new, casual and they’re having fun together.”

The following month, Jessie was spotted supporting the actor at the opening night of Magic Mike Live.

Just days later, Tatum praised the singer for her performance at the Royal Albert Hall in a gushing Instagram post.

Sharing a photo from the concert, he wrote: “This woman just poured her heart out on stage at the Royal Albert Hall. Whoever was there got to witness something special. Wow.”

Tatum split from his wife Jenna Dewan in April 2018 after nearly nine years of marriage.

The former couple share a five-year-old daughter, Everly.
