Speaking to HuffPost UK, Nicole has clarified the situation once and for all.

After naming Ed as a dream guest for her new panel show ‘Bring The Noise’, Nicole turned her attention to the romance reports, telling us: “It had been going on for so long, and Ed and I are good mates so we decided just having fun and taking the mick."

Addressing her Dubsmash clip, Nicole laughed: “We thought it was quite clever of us. I thought of it all on my own!

“He was like, ‘I love it!’ and then he commented on it writing, ‘there, there, there’s always other fish in the sea’.”

The relationship rumours first started circling in early August, when it was reported that they’d been spending time together and therefore, were obviously dating.

It’s perhaps just as well that the reports weren’t true, as Ed has already been spotted snuggling up to a mystery blonde, later revealed to be Cherry Seaborn, one of his old school pals.
