Neil Milan is 'consistently romantic' with Olly Alexander

Clean Bandit's Neil Milan is "consistently romantic" with Years & Years' Olly Alexander.

The couple went public with their relationship earlier this year and gushed about one anothers' heartfelt gestures while backstage at New Look Wireless Festival in London on Sunday (05.07.15).

Neil shared: "Olly has probably done more amazingly romantic things, but I'm more consistently romantic."

Olly - who will release Years & Years' debut album 'Communion' on Friday (10.07.15) - penned his band's latest single 'Shine' about his beau and admitted the violinist often gives him bouquets of flowers as loving gifts.

The 24-year-old star added: "I talked about [him] on stage once. I said, 'I wrote this about my boyfriend'. And [he's] got me flowers a lot."

The pair also explained they were keen to let people know about their relationship because they think it will help young people who like their music realise being gay is fine, because they didn't have any homosexual role models when they were growing up.

Neil - who is currently working on Clean Bandit's second studio LP - told Capital FM: "I think it's good to share.

"It's important for people to see that you can be happy as a couple, and a young gay couple.

"I think I would have loved to have seen one [growing up]."
