Kate Nash is engaged.

The 'Foundations' singer is set to tie the knot with her long-term boyfriend Thomas Silverman.

A source told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: "Kate and Tom are engaged and are planning to get married later this year.

"They couldn’t be happier and are such a lovely couple.

"They have been quietly dating for several years and actually met when they were at school.

"Fate brought them back together and now things are great.

“It’s gearing up to be an amazing year for Kate.

“She’s got new music, a set at Glastonbury and will become Tom’s wife.”

Kate and Thomas knew each other at school and reconnected years later and the 36-year-old singer previously compared their romance to the movie 'Notting Hill', in which a famous actress falls for a book store owner.

She told The Guardian newspaper: "He’s the first boyfriend I’ve had that’s like a really good person. It turned into a bit of a 'Notting Hill' romcom accidentally."

Meanwhile, Kate - who will release her new album '9 Sad Symphonies' next month - has previously spoken about her tough experiences during her early years in the music industry and how she felt she was taken advantage of by older music executives.

She said: "Artists often have mental health issues. And their lifestyles are unstable because of all the travelling and the media commentary on their lives. Now I’m like: ‘How were all these 40-year-old men hanging out with me and happy to profit from me and not concerned about my health in any way?’

"You have to go: ‘Why do I want to do this? It’s torturing me, it’s really painful, I’m on the edge, why do I need to continue?’ But this isn’t a choice, this is who I am."
