Rizzle Kicks' Jordan Stephens fancies Taylor Swift.

The 21-year-old singer admits he has developed a crush on the 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' hitmaker since getting to know her through his close friend, Ed Sheeran - who has been touring the US with the blonde beauty - and falling for her grounded attitude to fame.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he said: ''I think she's hot, she's really nice as well. Last time I hung out with her was at the Summer Time Ball with her and Ed. She's just very relaxed, she seems quite strong-minded. She seems very sure about what she's doing and saying.''

The star has slammed rumours suggesting Taylor is dating 'Lego House' hitmaker Ed, insisting he can understand where they have come from as friends - who recorded hit single 'Everything Has Changed' together - who share a love of music.

Jordan - who is joined in Rizzle Kicks by Harley Alexander-Sule - explained: ''He's not dating Taylor Swift. He's definitely not. Their relationship is tight, man. Ed is like king of the crop at the moment and they just get along really well and they like making music together and they wrote a brilliant song and now he's on f***ing stadium tours with her.''

Rizzle Kicks' second album 'The Roaring 20s' is out now.
