    Jade Thirlwall knew her boyfriend Jordan Stephens was 'The One' because he'd played a drag queen

    The Little Mix star - who was a guest judge on the first series of 'RuPaul's Drag Race UK' last year - has revealed that it's a big deal to her that her romantic partners love drag culture and that's one of the reasons she fell head over heels for the Rizzle Kicks star, as he dressed in drag for the 2019 movie 'Tucked'


    Speaking to drag queen RuPaul for the December/January issue of Cosmopolitan UK magazine, Jade said: “It’s really important for me that whoever I find relationship-wise loves drag culture. When I first started talking to my boyfriend [Jordan Stephens], I discovered he did a movie where he played a drag queen and I was like, right, that’s it. He’s perfect. Sign me up! A straight man who’s willing to dress in drag and loves being queer and feminine.”

    Jordan, 28, is Jade's first known boyfriend since she split from The Struts rocker Jed Elliott - whom she had dated for three years until July last year.

    Prior to meeting Jade, actor-and-musician Jordan had been romancing 'Emma' actress Amber Anderson, also 28, but the pair were thought to have separated earlier this year.

    Elsewhere, the 27-year-old singer admitted that without channelling drag queens when she's on stage with her bandmates, she wouldn't have the "courage" to be herself.

    The 'Sweet Melody' hitmaker added: “It’s taken me a lot of time to gain the courage to completely be myself in everyday life.

    “It wasn’t until I got on stage that I would put this persona on and channel drag queens.

    “You really helped me to do that."

    The Dec 20 / Jan 21 issue of Cosmopolitan UK is on sale from 29th October or head to www.cosmopolitan.com/uk/RuPaul to read the full interview online.
