The cute couple reveal why they kept their love a secret
They arrived at Now‘s Christmas party last week arm in arm and couldn’t keep their eyes off each other all night.
Speaking exclusively to Now, Tamera, 16, says: It hasn’t been long – just a few weeks.
I didn’t expect to meet anyone in the house because I had a boyfriend.
‘But it’s early days. I don’t really know what’s happening at the moment as we haven’t had “the chat”.
I just want to see where it goes, but I like him and we’re enjoying it at the moment. We aren’t properly official.’
Sam, 19, adds: Yes, we’re together, but I need the seal of approval from her uncle first before we can go official.
‘I’m meeting him in a couple of weeks.’
At our Christmas party the pair were holding hands and looking very much the cute couple.
Later, they were spotted snogging on the roof area of London’s Sanctum Soho hotel.
Tamera and Sam were first linked in October, when they were said to have kissed backstage after
she split with her boyfriend Joshante Amihyia, 20.
But they repeatedly insisted they were just friends.
But now that things are hotting up with Sam, Tamera‘s happy to admit: Niall just gave me advice – there’s nothing more to it.’
