Is Jade Thirlwall Dating Anyone?

by Maitri Suhas

Jade Thirlwall from Little Mix has an amazing voice and an amazing head of hair (which she so suavely flips to get rid of huge bug when they bother her on stage). If you don't know Thirlwall's name yet, you should. She's part of the British girl group Little Mix, which was formed on The X Factor in 2011 and has been taking the States by storm. They group is in the U.S. this week to promote their new single "Black Magic" and to attend the Teen Choice Awards on Aug. 16. Little Mix is nominated for five awards, including one of the biggest surfboard awards of the night: Choice Female Music Group. Thirlwall recently garnered some attention when she accepted a sign from a fan that read "Zayn is irrelevant anyway!" (LOL) referring, of course, to the fact that her Little Mix bandmate Perrie Edwards and Malik just split up. But what about Jade Thirlwall? Is she dating anyone?

Right now it looks like the Little Mix powerhouse is single, but there are rumors that the 22-year-old is getting close to another young British star who emerged from a talent show (a niche group that's ever growing). Take the news with a grain of salt, though, as it's just gossip for now, but Thirlwall's been linked with Collabro's Michael Auger. Collabro is a British boy band that came together on Britain's Got Talent. According to The Mirror, Thirlwall "caught the eye of the 25-year-old" and his bandmate, Tom Redgrave, told The Daily Star, "We can set them up on a blind date on Dating In The Dark, I would love to see that." Wow, Tom, haven't you ever heard of privacy?!

If Thirlwall and Auger are dating, they are successfully keeping things pretty much fully under wraps. And if they aren't, Little Mix has had a pretty busy past year, so maybe she doesn't have time for boys anyway, you know?! The girl group released their video for "Black Magic" in May, and they do a bit of writing work, too. The girls wrote "Pretty Girls," which they passed on to Iggy Azalea and Britney Spears. That's a pretty impressive collaboration!

As for Thirlwall's dating past, she split up with her boyfriend of two years, Sam Craske, last summer. Craske is a dancer from the group Diversity, and oddly enough, while he was dating the Thirlwall, another member of Diversity was dating another member of Little Mix. Jesy Nelson from the girl group was dating Jordan Banjo from the dance group, and apparently they broke up right before Craske and Thirlwall did.

If Thirlwall is flirting with Auger, he's probably gonna have to wait until her schedule clears up before any real dates, because their rush of success isn't going to stop any time soon. The girls are performing their song "Black Magic" at the Teen Choice Awards, and hopefully, they'll walk away with some surfboards too.
