Nicola Roberts beams as she goes public with footballer boyfriend at Elton John gig

Nicola Roberts, 36, looked blissfully happy as she stepped out with her new boyfriend Mitch Hahn over the weekend.

The Girls Aloud singer and the semi-professional footballer looked loved-up as they enjoyed Sir Elton John's British Summertime gig on Friday night - their first public appearance together since striking up a romance earlier this year.

As they pottered around the Hyde Park concert, in the Accor Live Limitless section of the festival, Nicola flashed a huge smile as she strolled alongside the accountant and amatuer sports star.

The singer cut a casual but chic figure as she enjoyed Elton's Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour with her new beau - looking effortlessly glamorous in black skinny jeans, a denim jacket and classic Chanel quilted handbag.

Nicola's natural beauty shone through thanks to her minimal makeup look, while her long flame coloured tresses were worn loose and straight.

Mitc, who will captain the Great Britain football team at the European Maccabi Games in Israel next month, matched his girlfriend's style in a similarly casual ensemble for their date night.

The Grays Athletic player wore a pair of dark blue skinny jeans, white trainers and a grey hoodie for the music concert on Friday - clutching a pair of novelty blue sunglasses at one point during the evening.

The lovebirds shared a giggle several times as they enjoyed Elton's final farewell performance at BTS, with Nicola snapping away on her phone at one point during the singer's gig.

Nicola and Mitch's romantic outing marks the first time the singer has publicly courted since the end of her six-year relationship with ex Charlie Fennell in 2013.

The Beat of My Drum singer was also in a brief relationship with Carl Davies, who subjected her to a campaign of online harassment after their time together came to an end.

He was convicted of stalking Nicola and slapped with a restraining order after setting up 35 social media accounts to send thousands of messages - including threats - to the star over the course of four years.

Carl, 43, was given a suspended 15-month sentence and lifetime restraining order in 2017. He has since been jailed for sending death threats to former BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin and threatening to rape her daughter.

Earlier this year, the singer opened up about how therapy helped her cope with the trauma of being stalked and advised others to follow suit

"I started in 2018, when I was 33, because of the trauma I’d faced with a stalker. As a young woman, loving yourself is top priority," Nicola told Fabulous magazine in January.

Nicola also explained how she was uncomfortable with her early fame after shooting into the spotlight on ITV on Popstars: The Rivals with her Girls Aloud bandmates back in 2002.

She recalled: "The reason I wanted to be in the band was because I could sing.

"I didn’t think about how it was going to make me feel and the fact that I might look different from the other girls.

"Once I got into the band, the magnitude of all those other things just became so apparent and I saw comments about me in the media, from people on television and the radio, other celebrities and the public.

"Everything was related to my appearance – nothing was about what I sounded like."

Nicola, Cheryl, Nadine Coyle and Kimberley Walsh will are set to reunite in the near future in order to raise funds for charity, following the heartbreaking death of their bandmate Sarah Harding, 39, last year.

Speaking to OK! magazine in April, Nadine said: "We’re planning a night for an event to raise money in honour of Sarah.

"She’s very much in the forefront of our minds.

"We want to raise money for a piece of medical equipment that helps diagnose cancer earlier so people can be treated. We definitely want to do something to help others."
