Jack Whitehall is one of the nation’s fave funny men but, although he entertains us on shows like Travels With My Father and A League of Their Own, he usually keeps his love life out of the limelight.

The comedian has been dating Essex model Roxy Horner for over two years and confirmed their relationship during lockdown when they both appeared in a TikTok video together. How very modern of them.

We’ve done some digging to find out everything you need to know about Roxy, including all the tea about her rumoured exes Leonardo DiCaprio and Joey Essex.

Who is Roxy Horner?

Roxy Horner is a 30-year-old British model from Essex.

She made her first appearance in British Vogue when she was just 17 and has been signed to top modelling agency Premier Model Management for over a decade.

You’ve probably seen her work as she’s modelled for brands including Boohoo, Boux Avenue, Quiz and Superdry.

Roxy’s also had a number of small acting roles, including an appearance in short film Art of Expression.

Is Roxy Horner Jack Whitehall's girlfriend?

Yep. Jack and Roxy reportedly began dating at the start of 2020 and later decided to move in together before the first lockdown began in March that year.

They live together at the comedian’s south west London home.

“Jack and Roxy are enjoying being in isolation together. It’s all very new but they’re in their own little bubble and things are perfect at the moment,” a source told The Sun at the time.

How did Roxy Horner meet Jack Whitehall?

It’s not known how Roxy and Jack met but they began dating shortly after he was rumoured to have joined celebrity dating app Raya.

Could it have been love at first swipe?

Why was Roxy Horner rushed to hospital?

Roxy was rushed to hospital recently after she lost consciousness due to her struggles with type 1 diabetes.

Roxy was diagnosed with diabetes in May 2021 after suffering from low energy levels, continual sickness and "appalling" memory.

She shared her experience on social media, following outpourings of concern from her fans. The model posted a message on her Instagram Story which said, "I've been having a really rough time managing my glucose levels the past few weeks, they are yo-yoing for absolutely no reason, I throw up when I go too high and I've had a few too many hypos for my liking lately.

"My friend had to call an ambulance for me the other day, I was staring to lose consciousness, my entire body was shaking, my levels got pretty low and wouldn't come back up even after drinking four apple juices."

She continued, "It's so weird to me because I'm still figuring this out and a month ago I really thought I started to nail it but it's always going to be a rollercoaster and I know soon I'll feel much better, maybe even tomorrow, I'll be fine.

"My problems feel so minuscule on the scale of what's going on in the world and I count myself lucky that I'm safe in my own country."

We hope she makes a speedy recovery.

Are Roxy Horner and Jack Whitehall engaged?

Jack and Roxy sparked rumours they were engaged when she was pictured leaving their hotel with a massive gold sparkler on what appeared to be her ring finger after a romantic staycation in Southend in September 2020.

But a spokesperson for the 31-year-old funny man sadly confirmed he hadn’t popped the question and they were very much NOT engaged.

Did Jack Whitehall cheat on Roxy Horner?

It was claimed in October 2020 that Roxy accused Jack of cheating on her during a furious row, although the comedian is thought to have strongly protested his innocence.

A source close to the couple explained, "She was so angry with him as she thought he’d done the dirty on her. He was squirming away and did his best to reassure her that he was innocent.

"The incident occurred last week and it says it all that the pair have barely been on their social media since having recently been in each other’s pockets. In fact, Roxy went out earlier in the week without him."

Jack and Roxy seemed to admit to their relationship woes on social media when the 32-year-old shared a snap of him covering his face while holding a monkey statue and wrote, "When you know you’ve been a naughty monkey."

Roxy then commented, "About right!"
