The one and only Harry Styles is first place on our list of celebrity crushes, so we’re always veeery interested (/ filled with jealousy) when hearing about his luuuurve life.

Over the years, Harry has been linked to Kendall Jenner, Taylor Swift and Cara Delevingne but now it’s now been reported that he’s secretly dating ‘Naked Chef’ and blogger Tess Ward.


A source told The Sun: "As soon as Harry met Tess there was an instant spark between them.

"They really bonded over their mutual love of quirky fashion and food – and things turned romantic quickly.

"They’ve been on a number of dates while Harry has been in London and he’s already introduced Tess to some of his close friends including his personal stylist Lou Teasdale."

The pair were also spotted in a car together over the weekend and Hazza is apparently determined to make the relationship work despite being v.busy with his solo album launch.


So, we thought it's about time we got to know Tess a little better.

Who is Tess Ward?

Tess Matilda Ward is a UK chef, food blogger, food writer, food consultant and model from London.

Tess grew up with her family near Oxford and studied History of Art at the University of Leeds. Apparently, Uni was the place where she developed her love of cooking and took advantage of a “big kitchen, lots of hungry friends and a strict budget.”

When Tess was 18, she went travelling to India but picked up a horrible parasite that caused her to rethink her approach to eating. She was eventually cured by a clinical nutritionist and the whole experience inspired her to enrol at swanky food school Le Cordon Blue where she received professional training.

Tess has worked as a chef with The Ritz and River Cottage!!!!! She has also written for Fabulous, Grazia and is currently a freelance writer for Great British Chefs.


How old is Tess Ward?

Tess was born in 1990, so that makes her 26/27. Four years older than Hazza.

What is Tess Ward best-known for?

Just being a best-selling author. No biggie.

Back in June of 2015, Tess released her very first cookbook titled The Naked Diet.

The book is 'A transformative approach to healthy eating that strips back one's diet to simple, clean, and pure foods that cleanse, restore, and nourish the body, featuring 60 recipes and a chapter on detoxing' and you can buy it on Amazon.

And after the success of her first book, Tess went on to release The Naked Cookbook one year later.

She's just so bloody cool.

Tess has one of the most inviting and well put together Instagram feeds EVER and she also runs popular blogYES CHEF.

How did Harry Styles meet Tess Ward?

According to The Sun, Tess was introduced to Harry by 'mutual friends'. And knowing Harry's inner London circle of pals, it could be anyone from Nick Grimshaw to Alexa Chung.

And whilst stalking Tess (soz not soz), we found that she's been pictured with some of our fave Chelsea gals, including Millie Mackintosh and Rosie Fortescue.


Or maybe they met IRL? The pair don't follow each other on Twitter or Instagram, suggesting that they did in fact meet the old skool way and didn't slide into each other's DM's.
