Showing off the funny side to her personality, Nicole admits: ‘Well, to be fair there was a mirror behind you, I was probably looking in the mirror,’ before the pair burst into laughter.
The couple met when he starred on Celebrity X Factor in 2019 while she was a judge on the show, with Thom claiming he had ‘hit the jackpot’ with Nicole.
He revealed that flirting with the Don’t Cha hitmaker wasn’t even on his mind when they entered her room as he didn’t think he stood a chance, but said there simply was an ‘instant attraction’ between them.
He told The Sun: ‘It wasn’t even in my thought process to try it on with Nicole because it would have been unprofessional and she’s so lovely and stunning in every possible way. I was just like, “She’s out of my league”.
The former Scottish international rugby union player went on to say that it was his grandmother who inspired him to ‘pluck up the courage’ and talk to Nicole as he recalled her motto: ‘If you don’t ask, you don’t get’.
Thom reflected that he rejected the idea of sliding into the popstar’s DMs as he didn’t think it was the ‘done thing’ and would be ‘awkward’, but instead felt it was right to have an old fashioned face-to-face conversation.
He added that he’s ‘really grateful’ that their relationship began ‘naturally’ during their ‘intimate first meeting’, with the hunk insisting he’s ‘never looked back’.
In June, Nicole announced the news that her beau popped the question during a trip to Vila Nova de Gaia in Portugal, after three years of dating.
