The songstress – who split with rugby player Gavin Henson earlier this year – has spent weeks fending off romance rumours, but has now finally confirmed they are true.

‘Jonathan is a handsome guy and really cool and we have worked together a lot,’ she told the Sun. ‘We get on well, so we’ll see how it goes.’

Charlotte insists she had split with Gavin before she began dating her new beau, but says she’d ‘drop him like a hot chip’ if her children, Ruby and Dexter, ever took a dislike to the songwriter.

‘Both Jonathan and I ended our relationships long before either of us even thought of moving on,’ she said, adding: ‘I would drop a man like a hot chip if ever my children said they didn’t like him.

‘It’s all about my children and that’s the way things will always remain.’

Meanwhile, Charlotte’s ex, Gavin Henson – who is currently appearing in Strictly Come Dancing – has voiced his opinions on Ms Church’s new relationship.

‘It’s the worst thing in the world to see your kids being brought up by another fella. It’s not nice at all,’ he said.

Gav also revealed he feels so embarassed by the break-up, he has put his rugby career on hold.

‘I just felt a bit embarrassed to go back into the changing room with the boys, the Ospreys,’ he said.

‘They know me so well, they would be asking personal questions and I wasn’t quite ready for that. I just wanted to have a season away.’
