It was already known Jesy and Chris were self-isolating apart during the coronavirus pandemic.

The singer told Australian newspaper The Sunday Telegraph: "Chris isn't with me right now because he is in isolation with his flatmate, so I haven't seen him for a while."

However, she did add: "My love life is fine and dandy."

After this, they went public with their romance and have appeared happy since.
