Joel Corry penned: ‘Woooo massive congrats to you both !!!’, while Jake Quickenden said: ‘Congrats mate!’

Ella and Jack first found each other during the Covid lockdown after they linked up on a dating app – after Ella had been through a tough break up and when she had just finished writing her second album.

She has previously told Metro of how they met: ‘It’s funny, we always say we never would have met and crossed paths probably if it wasn’t for the lockdown. 

‘Finishing the album at that point was an amazing healing process for me, as I’d split from my previous partner and just wanted to have some time to myself. 

‘I thought this is my time, I’m going to get stuck into the music again and in my mind, I was like that’s it, no more guys, I don’t need a distraction, my heart needs to heal.

‘Meeting at that time was really cool because everything on the record was about owning up to mistakes, things falling apart and me working myself.’

Ella has previously told how she wrote a song about him on her second album, called Northern Lights.

Last summer Jack penned a sweet two-year anniversary post to Ella, writing: ‘Two years with this amazing woman. 

‘You are incredible not only for putting up with me but in everything you do. Can’t wait to make so many more special memories with you!’

The pair looked smitten as they posed on a beach together and beamed for the cameras.  

The Ghost hitmaker has kept her relationship history fairly private but during her time on X Factor did date Union J band member George Shelley. 

The couple were spotted walking along a London street clutching hands before they then jetted off to Disneyland Paris together for a weekend in 2012.

He won his first World Cup title in Mexico in 2015, before adding a second that year in Hungary.

At the Olympic Games themselves, Jack was on course to claim a medal before being disqualified for two yellow cards.

In 2017, he came agonisingly close to a World Championship medal with a fourth-place finish in Budapest, before winning World Cup gold in Abu Dhabi.
