Despite the Little Mix star, 27, recently claiming she and the Love Island hunk, 26, were just “friends”, the duo confirmed their romance is in fact back on as they enjoyed a night out together at Alcotraz Prison Cocktail bar in East London.
Posing in boiler suits, Chris gushed over his new girlfriend as they shared a kiss while wrapping their arms around each other in the intimate snap.

“The only inmate I’ve ever needed,” he captioned the snap, alongside a heart emoji.
As well as the sweet photo, Chris and Jesy shared several videos from their night out on their Instagram stories, as they scoffed on McDonald’s on the way home before rolling around in bed together.
Joking around in American accents, Chris asks Jesy: “Why you here?”

Before Jesy replies: “I’m here because basically I fell in love with someone and I really wanted to meet him so I just committed a crime to be in prison with him.”
Later on in the night, as the couple roll around in bed, Chris tells Jesy he’s “never felt like this”, before biting her arm and saying: “I’m all blood and I’ve found my bit of fresh meat baby.”
Rumours of a romance between the pair first hit headlines earlier this year when they were spotted kissing in a kebab shop after a night out.

At the time, a source told The Sun: “It’s very early days but there’s definitely an attraction between them and they’re getting on really well.
“Jesy is enjoying her newly single status and spending time with Chris – they had fun mixing cocktails together at The Cauldron last night – and couldn’t resist posting some pictures on both their Instagram stories.
“They are taking things slowly for now but it could become something more serious.”
