Jade Thirlwall: I've only seen my boyfriend six times this year

Jade Thirlwall has only seen her boyfriend "six times" since they started dating.

The 23-year-old singer has been in a relationship with The Struts bassist Jed Elliott since January, and although the Little Mix musician says their relationship moved "quite quick", their schedules have put a strain on their romance.

Asked if she had told the 25-year-old musician she loves him yet, the 'Shout Out to My Ex' hitmaker said: "Oh yeah, we said that even before we were together properly! We went in quite quick, but when you know, you know. It's brutal, as I've only seen him about six times this year, but every time I do it's very good."

And the 'Black Magic' singer - who is joined in her band by Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock - admitted life on the road can be difficult for their sex life.

She added: "I was recently in America on his tour bus and it's not that sexy when you're trying to get it on! But you make it work."

The brunette beauty also opened up about her body, saying that her relationship with Jed has helped her learn to "embrace" the parts of her she never used to.

Asked what the best and worst parts of her body are, Jade said: "I quite enjoy my back. I don't like my whole breast area, as it doesn't really exist, but I've embraced them now. My boyfriend likes them!"

Meanwhile, Jade - who's band has recently been at the centre of controversy over their "sexy" outfits - says there's nothing wrong with being sexy, as long as there's "balance".

Speaking to The Sun newspaper's Fabulous magazine, she said: "It's about balance and we still do kooky videos [as well as sexy ones], so we can relate to everyone."
