They said: “This isn’t a new couple alert or a secret relationship – the only people this has been a secret to is the media because all of us, Taylor and Joe’s closest friends and their families, were aware they have been together for several months and have known each other for a longtime.

“After her 1989 tour and all the attention Taylor received, she learned she had to be more protective of her personal life and she and Joe decided early on to keep their private life private.”

Joe has been described as a rising star of Hollywood, and has starred in Billy Lynn’s ‘Long Halftime Walk’ alongside Kristen Stewart, as well as ‘The Sense Of An Ending’, which also stars Jim Broadbent and Charlotte Rampling. 

His next major role will be in period film ‘The Favourite’, where he will play the love interest of Emma Stone’s servant character.
