Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson and boyfriend Chris Hughes are looking more loved-up than ever after a year of dating and have celebrated their first anniversary with some extremely gushy social media posts.

The pair first got together at the start of 2019 and were spotted kissing in a kebab shop on their first date before jetting off for a romantic break a few weeks later.

Jesy and Chris regularly share cute snaps of each other and their anniversary was no exception, with both taking to Instagram to pay tribute to each other.

Alongside three pictures of her and Chris, Jesy wrote, “Been with this little scamp a whole year today! I can honestly say I’ve never been more in love and happy in all my life!

“I love you rat bag @chrishughesofficial forever and always ❤️🐀.”

Chris then shared his own post and wrote, “1 year! This time last year I just finished snogging ya face off in a kebab shop. A memory my heart can’t life without [sic].”

He praised Jesy, whose BBC Three documentary Odd One Out about online abuse broke records last year, for being a “role model and all round queen” and added, “You got it all girl. Forever ❤️.”

AWW.
