2018 has certainly been a shocker for celebrity romances we didn't see coming, and another one to add to the list is TOWIE star Tom Pearce and his new girlfriend, Made In Chelsea star Emily Blackwell.

Although rumours about the pair have been rife for a while now, Tom confirmed the romance when he posted a selection of cute snap of the pair for Emily's 22nd birthday. He wrote, 'Happy Birthday Girl @emily.blackwell_ 💙'. [sic]

Emily also shared a photo of herself sitting on Tom's knee as she wore a crown on her head. Alongside the snap, the MIC beauty wrote, 'Timmy 💙'. [sic]

Reality TV fans were clearly obsessed at the new romance, with one fan writing, 'Possibly one of the best looking couples of 2018', with another adding, 'ems bday and insta official in the same day... cute as f--- x' [sic]

Another then wrote, 'Omg you two are just the cutest couple ever. 😍💍'. [sic]
