FOOTIE expert and TV presenter Alex Scott is dating pop star Jess Glynne, The Sun can reveal today.
The former England and Arsenal footballer has been quietly seeing the superstar singer for the past two months.
The couple enjoyed a series of dates before and after the Women’s World Cup.
And on Tuesday night, the couple celebrated alongside David and Victoria Beckham at their exclusive Netflix documentary premiere afterparty at The Twenty Two in west London.
A friend said: “Alex and Jess have been developing slowly and didn’t want to rush things or go public too soon.
“But they are officially an item now and seem really happy. They are both strong, independent women with a shared passion and respect for their respective careers, supporting each other from the sidelines.
“It’s still early days for them, but they’ve gotten to know each other’s friends and everyone is really happy for them.”
Jess, 33, and Alex, 38, were photographed side by side playing tennis at Wimbledon in July and have since grown closer.
They were later spotted having a boozy pub lunch in northwest London just before the Women’s World Cup in August.
The pair then stayed in touch as Alex traveled to Australia to cover the tournament for the BBC – before meeting again in London upon their return.
Jess is the only British female solo artist to have seven UK No.1 singles, while former Lioness Alex is a presenter on the BBC’s Football Focus.
Alex previously wrote about her romance with former teammate Kelly Smith in her memoir.
She said Smith was her first love and she spoke of her “heartbreak” during their breakup.
And Jess, whose hits include “Hold My Hand,” spoke about “not putting a label” on her sexuality in a 2015 interview.
She said: “I’ve only been with one girl and that’s the girl from my album [2015’s I Cry When I Laugh]. I will never put a label on my sexuality.
“People should never feel uncomfortable about who they love.”
The couple’s representatives declined to comment.
