Ab-flashing FKA twigs exits same London hotspot as Taron Egerton in early hours


FKA twigs departed London’s Chiltern Firehouse restaurant at 2.45am on Thursday morning just minutes after Taron Egerton, however a source told MailOnline the pair hadn’t even noticed each other inside.

The singer, 34, flashed a hint of her midriff in a stylish white top which she held together with one button and wrapped up with a brown-and-orange floral jacket. 

Meanwhile the actor, 32, kept a low profile as he covered his face with a faded grey denim jacket while exiting the celebrity hotspot in Marylebone – following reports he has split from his long-term girlfriend Emily Thomas last week.

She accessorised her look with a classic black umbrella, despite it not raining, and continued her ensemble with a pair of baggy brown patchwork trousers.

Throwing a small black handbag over her shoulder, she added inches to her frame with a pair of leather cowboy boots and her glossy brown tresses in thick braids.

Taron had stepped out wearing a pink, blue and green plaid shirt which he had layered above a grey T-shirt and denim jeans while donning grey trainers.

The Tears In The Club songstress is currently dating Matty Healy from The 1975 – who is the son of Loose Women’s Denise Welch. They began dating in January 2020.

Representatives for Taron and FKA twigs have been contacted for comment by MailOnline.

It comes after the actor split from his long-term girlfriend Emily after six years together, according to a new report.

The Rocketman star, who passed out on stage during the opening night of his West End show Cock last month before quitting for good, has allegedly now signed up to celebrity dating app Raya to find his next lucky lady.

Having deleted all traces of the assistant director from his Instagram profile, sources close to the star have claimed their relationship became ‘strained’ due to their busy schedules.

An insider told The Sun: ‘Taron and Emily have both been really busy for the past year and it put a lot of pressure on their relationship.

‘They have separated and it hasn’t been easy for either of them. He is taking some time for himself now but he is open to meeting someone else soon.

‘He has been putting himself out there on Raya in the hopes he can ease himself back into dating.’

Emily has worked on blockbuster movies including the likes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Wonder Woman and Justice League.

He previously split with his partner in 2018 before confirming they had romantically reconciled at the pre-BAFTA Filmmakers Dinner four months later.

In November of that year, the Robin Hood actor dropped the bombshell he had split from Emily after two years together.

A month later he was spotted putting on a very cosy display with Kirsty Gallacher, then 42, with the pair leaving a party together at 4am.

Taron insisted he was ‘reinventing’ himself in the wake of the break up as he shaved his head to play Sir Elton John in the new biopic Rocketman.

He claimed shaving his head had a ‘cathartic’ impact to change the way he looked following his split.

He said: ‘I found it quite liberating because I just finished the Elton John thing and had this awful hair. So, I shaved my hair cos they had thinned it right out and given me this bald patch.

‘It was very cathartic and also, not to put a downer on things, I split up with my girlfriend not long ago and it weirdly felt a bit like reinvention… to sort of change the way I look.’

Taron recently withdrew completely from appearing in his West End show Cock where he was starring alongside Bridgerton’s Jonathan Bailey.

The announcement that the Rocketman actor has dropped out ‘for personal reasons’ comes after he was replaced when he tested positive for Covid-19 and fainted on stage during the opening night of the play.

In a statement released by the Twitter account for the play, a revival of Mike Bartlett’s 2009 production Cock at London’s Ambassador Theatre, it said that understudy Joel Harper-Jackson will take over the role of M previously played by Taron.

‘Joel Harper-Jackson will take over the role of M in Mike Bartlett’s razor sharp, hilarious play Cock until the end of the run,’ it said.

‘The part was originally played in this production by Taron Egerton, who has had to withdraw from the production due to personal reasons.’

The statement added that Joel was an understudy for the role, ‘and has been playing the part of M for the past ten days while Taron was absent from the production having tested positive for Covid’.

Lower down in the statement: Director Marianne Elliott described Joel as an ‘absolute hero’, saying that he’s a ‘brilliant and gifted actor’ who took over the role ‘at extremely short notice’.

‘Audiences have been standing and cheering and so am I,’ Marianne added.

Jonathan, who has recently been leaving Netflix viewers swooning with his return as Anthony Bridgerton in the second season of the hit period drama Bridgerton, added that Joel is ‘an immense talent and we couldn’t be luckier to have him on board’.

‘I am proud to continue sharing the stage with him,’ he concluded in his part of the statement.

Cock centres around John (Bailey), a man who falls in love with a woman (Jade Anouka) after going on a break from his long-term boyfriend (Egerton).

Last week the production team also released a statement after Taron fainted on stage.

The statement read: ‘During this evening’s first preview of Mike Bartlett’s play ‘Cock’ at the Ambassadors Theatre, Taron Egerton fainted towards the end of the performance.

‘A doctor who was in the audience attended to Taron immediately after the incident, and whilst he felt fine, it was decided that Taron’s understudy, Joel Harper-Jackson would continue in the role to complete the performance.’

Taron subsequently wrote on Instagram: ‘As some of you may have heard, I passed out during the first performance of COCK last night.

‘I am completely fine. Slightly sore neck and a bruised ego, but I’m fine.

‘I’ve decided to put a positive spin on it and I would appreciate it if anyone who was in the theatre last night just said that I gave such a committed, electrifying performance that my body couldn’t handle it and check out.

‘That being said, apparently you’re meant to actually do the full show and not just three quarters of it. [sic]’

Taron praised his ‘amazing’ understudy for stepping in.

His post continued: ‘I’ll be back with a vengeance tomorrow night. That you to the amazing team at the theatre and my wonderful cast mates for being so lovely.

‘But mainly I wanted to say thanks to Joel Harper Jackson who stepped in to do the last bit of the play.
